Christmas dessert recipe — fudge

By: 6 December 2010 3 Comments

Yeah, I know — Velveeta in 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:


Melt together:
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.

    I have tried this before without knowing in advance it was Velveeta. It was really good! I think I will try it.

    I would never even think to put Velveeta in fudge…but I would try anything once. I love baking around the holidays; I have never made fudge before and would like to give it a shot this year. Since it is my first time, I have been looking for recipes that are easy to make. I work with Better Recipes and feel that they offer a great selection of fudge recipes that are both easy to make and delicious. If this is what you are looking for, then I recommend you check out their Christmas Fudge Recipes
