Velveeta Revelations: Velveeta Fudge

So, we are still workin' the whole Velveeta thing over at our house and can I just say? Every single recipe I use calls for a POUND of Velveeta. What's up with using a whole POUND of processed cheese PRODUCT in your food? And what does this say about those people who actually eat Velveeta? Of which I am one? I'm not going to think about that. I'll think about it tomorrow. And Scarlett never would have maintained that waistline if Velveeta had been invented a little sooner. Read more at my Herald-Leader blog here.

I actually think I might try this out, and I can guarantee you I'm not telling ANYONE that there is Velveeta in it. I'll let you know how that goes.

Jan,

Here's a Velveeta recipe that using a pound of LITE Velveeta...this can help with the waistline.

Veggie Cheese Soup

3 cans of fat free Chicken broth
2-16 oz frozen cauliflower and/or broccoli (I steam fresh)
1 10oz. box of frozen spinach (I chop up fresh)
Dried onion / salt and pepper
1 can of rotel

Bring to a boil

Add 1 pound box of Lite Velvetta Cheese

Turn down to simmer

In the weight watchers world 1 cup/ 1 point

There is such a thing as TOO much Velveeta...just not during the holidays, evidently!

There are those whose motto is "If it ain't cheese whiz, I won't eat it." I say bravo for those confident enough to proudly eat Velveeta. Have a fabulous holiday, Mrs. Who.

Success! This fudge was a hit and the biggest reason for it's success was in not telling one single soul about the cheese:) I made the fugde yesterday but the recipe I found on Cooks.com was a bit different. I halved their recipe but it still took a whole two pound package of powdered sugar.
I used:
1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks)
2 lbs. Powdered sugar
1/2 c. Cocoa (took your hint and made that a generous 1/2 c. of cocoa.)
1 tbsp. Vanilla (I did not halve the Vanilla)
1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese
1/2 c. chopped nuts

It was easy to stir and melt the cheese and butter on low setting and then remove from stove and add the sugar and cocoa adding vanilla and nuts last. Spread in buttered pans, cool, cut into squares and store in tightly covered tin or container.

Thank you so much for this great idea. I have never made fudge and now I have a hit with a totally secret recipe that my family can only envy:)
