It all started with my families annual “Iron Chef” competition at our spring family get-together. Every year my mom chooses a secret ingredient and all family members are encouraged to bring a dish using it. Then we appoint judges and have a taste testing. It really is a fun family tradition.
This year’s secret ingredient was cheese.
Now being the very creative person that I am, and with my love of chocolate, I wanted to find a recipe that would amaze everyone. A recipe that would be so unique that my family with just gaze in awe. I wanted to win.
But I had no new amazing ideas and I was running out of time. Then I remembered a fudge recipe that my husband’s aunt had shared with us several years earlier using Velveeta cheese. I scoured the recipe file and when I found it, I had Buddy help me make it.
It was a hit! Rich and creamy, it just melts in your mouth before settled on your hips for the rest of your adult life.
Velveeta Cheese Fudge
In microwave carefully melt 1/2 pound of Velveeta Cheese and 1/2 pound butter.
Sift in 2 pounds of powdered sugar and 1/2 cup of cocoa.
Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla and chopped nuts.
Spread evenly into a buttered 9 x 9 pan.
Cool then cut into pieces. Makes about 3 pounds of candy.
I doubled the recipe with no trouble. I would recommend sifting the powdered sugar and cocoa. Buddy and I didn’t do that and we did have a few sugar clumps in the final product.
I’ve been told it never fails as some fudges do. I do know it never fails to get attention and raving reviews from all who try it!
