Over the years I tried to make traditional fudge. I guess I just don't get the 'soft-ball' concept. I would usually end up using my fudge for frosting a cake. This fudge never fails. No guessing and perfect every time...even for a candy-making challenged person such as myself. And you don't have to tell anyone it has cheese in it!!!

    Pour into pan and pat in with your hands. Because of the amount of butter in this recipe, pat the top of the candy with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Place candy in refrigerator until candy is firm. Cut into squares.
