Fake Fudge

Mr Lady is having a recipe contest. And, I’ve decided you all should benefit from my mad cooking skillz. Ahem. So, here’s installment one of some number of “Cooking with Cat.”

Each Christmas time I host a cookie exchange (Amy used to do it, then she moved, and now I do). Anyway. Each year I make yummy yummy peanut butter fudge. Everyone loves it. Everyone wants the recipe. I only divulge the ingrediants after they swallow.

Hmmm, there’s a chocolate version too.

So here it is, in all it’s glory:

1/2 lb Velveeta cheese
2 lbs powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup peanut butter

Melt first 3 ingredients together in microwave. Add remaining ingredients. Knead like bread dough until you can no longer see the sugar. Roll candy with a glass. Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate until set. Cut and enjoy!

Yes, the fudge glue is velveeta. And no, there’s no cheese flavor to the fudge. Where would it get the cheese flavor?

    Okay…I will try this but have to admit that the cheese has me a little worried. And secondly, remember that I live in the city for the next cookie exchange. :)

    Wow. Velveeta.

    Well, there are some days where I’m PMSing and all I want to eat is chocolate and cheese. Maybe this would work…

    So you’re gone for a coupla days, and when you come back you have a fun video for us, and a snack food made with 1/2 pound of velveeta and 2 cups of powdered sugar? As Joe Biden’s mother would say, “God love ya!”

    I think I really want to try this if only to test out the no cheese taste… but alas, there is no velveeta in The Netherlands.
    Can you imagine in this land o’cheese what the reaction to Velveeta might be?
