Cheese fudge is exactly what it sounds like: It is indeed made with cheddar cheese, but it's also made with chocolate. Virtually unknown outside certain Wisconsin enclaves, the confection has all the sweet chocolatey richness of fudge and a hint of cheddar tang, with just the right amount of walnut bits sprinkled throughout. It's the perfect sweet snack at a party and a delicious conversation-starting addition to a cheese platter. Don't knock it 'til you try it.
