Homemade Velveeta Cheese

I couldn't believe how easy this was to make.It only takes 4 ingredients to make it and one of them is water. In less then 10 minutes it's done. Best part is no ingredients I can't say or spell. Plus being cheaper doesn't hurt.

 Homemade Velveeta:

1 pound mild or medium cheddar cheese  ( Shredded your self. Pre-shredded cheese has a chemical that doesn't work well. with this recipe)
1 non flavored  gelatin package
1 cup boiling water
6 Tablespoons of instant non fat powdered milk
 In a blender or food processor put your gelatin and instant milk. Pour the boiling water over them. Mix a couple of times to blend together then add your cheese. If your mixer is small you may have to add a little at a time. Mix well, till your cheese has  melted ( a few un-melted pieces won't hurt anything) . Place in a bread pan lined with plastic and cover top with plastic. Make sure all the cheese is covered and all the air is out. If there is air trapped inside the plastic it could dry the top of your cheese. Place in frig over night or at least 12 hours.
Note: if you see a little liquid on the cheese after it is wrapped don't panic . This is normal due to the heat.


  1. I love Velveeta! I can't wait to try this!

    Coming over from Farmgirl Friday!

  2. I found a recipe one year, but put it off and never made it. I do think it had more ingredients than the one you made. Your recipe looks much easier, although one vegetarian here won't eat gelatin. How does it taste, compared to the store stuff?

  3. Wow - I had no idea you could do this! Any idea how long it keeps?

  4. This sounds great & not too hard! Thanks for the recipe! d

  5. Kristina The taste is really close. I used medium cheddar cheese so mine had a little bit more cheddar taste.
    Rustown Mom The recipe didn't say. But I won't go long then a week or two. It would probably start drying out after that.

  6. Thanks for sharing on the Homestead Blog Hop!

  7. That's so nice! I have never made homemade cheese, sounds so wonderful. It's really inspiring. Thank you for sharing.
