Two recipes for Velveeta fudge

I was first made aware of it from Paula Deen. XD

Here's the peanut butter one, which I made for Jenn:


1/2 lb sliced easy-melt cheese (recommended: Velveeta)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts
2 (16 ounce) boxes confectioners’ sugar


Lightly spray the bottom of a 9 by 2-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt cheese and butter together, then add peanut butter and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla and nuts.
Empty confectioners’ sugar into a large bowl and pour cheese mixture over sugar. Stir until completely mixed. Candy will be very stiff.
Using your hands, remove candy from the bowl and press evenly and firmly into the pan. Because of the amount of butter in this recipe, pat top of candy with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Place the pan in refrigerator until candy is firm.
To serve, cut into squares.

And the regular one. It actually looks just like chocolate due to the cocoa powder. I wish the pretty yellow of the Velveeta had stayed.


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
8 ounces pasteurized process cheese, Velveeta, cubed
1 1/2 pounds confectioners' sugar, about 5 cups unsifted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup non-fat dry milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts


In a large saucepan over medium heat butter and cheese cubes together, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Sift together confectioners' sugar and cocoa; add to cheese, mixing well. Stir in non-fat dry milk, vanilla and nuts. Turn into a 9x9x2-inch pan; chill until firm and cut into squares. Makes about 3 pounds of Velveeta Fudge.

I skipped the nuts in the last recipe as I never really like nuts in my food. Really the cheese isn't as strong as I'd personally like, because I really really LOVE Velveeta. XD It's more like a note in there. If you eat it and you think about the fact there's cheese in it, then you notice. Otherwise its pretty much just there to make it rich.

Miss you, Nikkie. <3
