Author: Kita


  • 12 oz Velveeta - cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 cup butter - diced
  • 6 oz unsweetened chocolate - chopped
  • 2 tbs light corn syrup
  • 1 teas vanilla
  • 8 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts - toasted
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows


  • Line a 9×13″ baking pan with parchment paper or aluminium foil and grease well. Set aside.
  • Preheat your broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • Arrange marshmallows in a single layer on baking sheet.
  • Toast until just lightly brown. No seriously, watch this like a hawk. A hundred mini marshmallows on fire is suddenly kind of a big deal if you have a tiny kitchen. Set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium heatproof bowl melt the Velveeta, butter, chocolate and corn syrup in the microwave.
  • Start with 40 seconds, then bump down the time to 30 second increments stirring as needed, until the mixture is smooth and completely melted.
  • In a large bowl beat in the vanilla and (with a hand mixer or some old fashioned muscle) the confectioners’ sugar into the chocolate mixture as quickly as possible one cup at a time. It will become difficult at the end but work through it for a smooth fudge.
  • Fold in the peanuts.
  • Spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon.
  • Carefully peel your toasted marshmallows off of the silpat. The bottoms will be sticky.
  • Arrange them in a single layer of the fudge, pressing gently.
  • Place in fridge to cool completely for at least 4 hours before serving.
  • Slice and serve.

  1. I’ve heard of fudge with Velveeta and it made me scratch my head. I actually don’t have a problem with the cheese as much as I do the chocolate. Dudette, however, she’s be snarfing this stuff down for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Especially with mini marshmallows toasted on top.

  2. This is the sort of thing the dude who pieced together Frankenstein would come up with. GENIUS.

  3. Wow, I had to blink twice when I saw the recipe ingredients…this looks amazing actually!
