Summer Fruit Fudge

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

12 ounces white chocolate, melted, cooled

3 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

1 1/4 cups toasted, finely chopped blanched almonds

1 cup fresh blueberries

Line an 8-inch-square pan with a 15-inch length of foil, pressing it into corners and against sides to make a smooth lining.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until perfectly smooth. Beat in white chocolate.

At medium-low speed, add confectioners’ sugar, 1 cup at a time. Increase speed to high; beat 2 minutes. Fold in 1 cup nuts, then berries.

Add to prepared pan; smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining nuts. Lightly press into surface. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Turn fudge out onto work surface; carefully peel off foil. Turn fudge right side up. Store in refrigerator. Serve cold.
