Velveeta Fudge by Margaret Ullrich

Did you ever notice how some things seem to go on sale pretty regularly?
So regularly that, within a month or two, there are a few jars of it sitting on the shelf.
The kids notice the glut and figure there’s something fishy going on.
Like maybe you’re trying to get some vitamins into them.

Velveeta is like that.
It’s a nice enough product, and it goes on sale almost every month.
It’s hard to pass up a bargain.
And it’s even harder to force feed something into the kids, especially when they’ve grown to be bigger than you are.

Time to get a little sneaky and make some fudge.
Yes, really.

Hints:

This recipe works with either regular Velveeta or Velveeta Light.
Two 16 ounce packages of confectioners’ sugar would give you 8 Cups.

Wrapped tightly, the fudge can be frozen up to 2 months.
Thaw in refrigerator overnight before serving.
