TRIED ’N’ TRUE: You can’t tell there’s Velveeta in this fudge

At Christmastime we make sweets, candy, cookies, etc. When we were in State Soil and Water, we would bring cookies and candy for the last night at the meetings. A friend of mine, Marie Bunting, brought this fudge recipe and samples. No one could believe it was made with cheese. Everyone enjoyed it. You couldn’t detect the cheese. I’m not much on chocolate, but it sure was good and it’s very easy to make. It also freezes well. Thanks, Marie.


1 pound margarine

1 pound Velvetta cheese

• Melt in microwave on high.

1 cup cocoa

2 tablespoons vanilla

4 pounds powered sugar

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

• Add melted cheese mixture. Stir thoroughly.

• Add 1 cup nuts.

• Spread into two 9- by 13-inch butter cake pans.
