Christmas dessert recipe — fudge
Sure, it sounds more than a bit strange, but the recipe is very, very solid. This is the South, after all, and some people seem determined to use Velveeta in just about anything imaginable.
That being the case, perhaps it’s not that surprising that someone had the bright idea to incorporate America’s favorite easy-melting cheese into a recipe. Highly unusual? The kind of thing that will make you do a double-take when you’re reading the recipe? Perhaps a bit too unique to experiment with during a season when you’re cooking like a maniac?
Yes, this fudge is all of that and a whole lot more. Give it a try and you’ll like it just fine. Trust me on this:
1 lb Velveeta cheese
1 lb oleo
1 cup cocoa
4 lbs powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans
Mix forever (seriously!) Spread in well buttered cookie sheet.
