Trailer Truffles

Do you like fudge?  This is the best part of fudge without the headaches that making fudge can bring.  The secret ingredient?  It's the first ingredient listed, surprised?  So was I, but I had to try it.  I couldn't believe that I had even used it when I tasted these "Trailer Truffles" (now you know why they are called that) . Try making them yourself, and then when you taste these, you won't believe it either. 
  • ½ lb. (8 oz.) Velveeta, cut into cubes
  • 1 C. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into slices
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 C. walnuts, chopped
  • 2 lbs. powdered sugar, plus ¾ C. for rolling the truffles
  • ½ C. Cocoa powder
  1. Boil water in a double boiler and then add the butter and cheese to melt.
  2. Stir until all of the cheese and butter are incorporated together and then add the vanilla and nuts.
  3. In a large bowl, sift the Cocoa powder and powdered sugar together.
  4. Pour the butter, cheese, and vanilla into the sugar and Cocoa and mix with a spatula.
  5. If necessary, mix with clean hands, make sure all of the powdered sugar is incorporated.
  6. While the mixture is still warm, scoop into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  7. Allow to set in the refrigerator for 1 hour and then roll each in powdered sugar, shake off the excess and serve at room temperature.
Tips and Tricks:
  • You can use any kind of chopped nuts you like.
  • If you don’t have a double boiler you can create one by placing a metal or glass bowl over a pot of boiling water.


  1. Oh my. Really? I am not sure what to think!
