Prepare a 9-inch square pan by lining with foil or plastic wrap
Bring butter and cheese to room temperature. This is important that the cheese and butter are room temp as they won’t cream together properly if cold and form little lumps in the fudge.
In a food processor, combine the cheese and butter.
Process until smooth and creamy.
Add the vanilla and chocolate extract.
Pulse to combine.
Transfer the butter and cheese mixture to a large bowl (you can use a stand mixer bowl if you prefer)
Add the cocoa powder and mix until cocoa fully combined.
Add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, beating or pulsing until each cup of sugar is incorporated fully.
This mixture will get very stiff so prepare your arms for work.
Spread fudge evenly in prepared pan.
Cover top with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or until firm.
Remove the fudge from the refrigerator shortly before serving.
Lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into small squares.
Serve or wrap tightly for storage.
