    Is the processed cheese Velveeta?

      Yes Marla, the processed cheese is Velveeta. I apologize for the delay in my reply. Thank you for visiting The Hungry Hoarder.

        Thanks for getting back with me. Do you think a cheese other than Velveeta work work? I know Velveeta melts nicely but wonder if that’s the only option.

          Perhaps a good high fat content cheese, maybe cheddar. Or you might try a combination of the high fat cheese and canned cheese soup thickened with a little cornstarch.

What's on your mind?
