Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm glad to know the process and recipe that said, practically speaking I buy a two pound loaf of Velveeta at my local warehouse employee owned super market for $4.88. A pound of cheddar is around $3.70. I buy both often. The Velveeta is for 'melting' recipes. Throw in the cost of gelatin ..etc, what have i saved? Whats the point?

I would definitely rather use this than the processed stuff at the store, and I like that it's made with only 4 ingredients. However, it's probably easier to just use real cheese! Velveeta is good for melted sauces, but you can make an easy and delicious sauce with shredded cheese, corn starch, and milk.

This recipe was great! I liked it even more than actual Velveeta because the consistency was more similar to real cheese, not like Velveeta's rubbery texture.

If you're looking for a Velveeta substitute this is worth a try. But I'm skeptical of using real cheese to make something that's supposed to taste like processed cheese...

Didn't taste like cheese, nor did it taste like Velveeta. Wouldn't bother making.
