WT Peanut Butter Velveeta Fudge

I just watched Community for the first time, and it was kind of cute. John Oliver is one of my favorite comedians. At the same time, Chevy Chase has fallen a long way, no?

Tomorrow is my first book club. I haven't read the book, but from what I understand there is actually no book discussion at book club; rather, much like bunco from the start of this decade, it's just an excuse for suburban women to drink.

A little while ago I came across a post on Pages, Pucks and Pantry for peanut butter fudge made with Velvetta. I have wanted to try it forever, and book club without books sounded like a perfect opportunity. Paula Deen originated the recipe. Accordingly, it comes as no surprise that the final step in the recipe is to blot the fudge with a paper towel to syphon off some of the excess butter.

I tried a little square myself tonight, and it is fine. Not like fine okay, but fine like a fine wine. I dubbed it White Trash Fudge. What? It's made with Velveeta and two sticks of butter.


  1. Ha ha yah White Trash Fudge sounds about right. Although oddly enough I REALLY want to try in now.

  2. Sounds like it's worth a try. My four kids love peanut butter fudge so I guess adding cheese will make it even better for them. We love hanging out in the kitchen. I think my eldest, who's 9 will be excited to try this one with me. :)

  3. My book club generally meets for like 2 hours, eats, drinks, and gossips. We talk about the book for MAYBE 10 mins most, during which half the group says "I didn't read it." White trash fudge would totally liven things up.

    I freaking LOVE Community. It took a few to hit its stride (Chevy got MUCH better as it went on) and there's not much John Oliver, unfortunately, but Joel McHale, Donald Glover, and Danny Pudi are HYSTERICAL and more than make up for the lack of JO.

  4. Ooooh! See above, a whole web page of fudge. Also, I am excited for a new season of Community, because I only saw the last episode of this season.
