My mother in law made this for Christmas last year. It is absolutely the most amazing thing I have ever tasted! I fell in love with it. After I'd showered her with many compliments, she told me that it was made with Velveeta. I would have never thought. No, you cannot taste the velveeta if you never knew it was there. After knowing it was there, I was trying to pinpoint the cheese flavor, but you just can't. It's so creamy and wonderful!!!
