Very good! Velveeta flavor was very strong, but I only had a 5oz jar of horseradish. I did increase the tabasco and worcestershire sauces to make up for my horseradish shortage. I was distracted during melting and the bottom browned slightly so I had little brown pieces in my cheese. It did not effect the flavor. My family assumed that it was bacon and I didn't tell them any different. Oh well, maybe I'll leave out the "bacon" next time.

I followed the recipe to the letter. Than I had to add more stuff because I like spicey. I added 2 tablespoons of SRIRACHA sauce to the end product and stirred it in. FANTASTIC so I added one more tablespoon and a ton a cracked black pepper to the top of each container. Many compliments. Thanks for a really good recipe. This will be in my gift baskets this Christmas.

My mom "has never cared for horseradish" and LOVED this! I want to stop people on the street and tell them about your bar cheese. Very good with pretzels.

I had a party to celebrate the Bar I have in my basement...what better time to serve Bar Cheese!I can't believe the reviews I got. Such a simple recipe and full of flavour. It is so easy to make but stand over the pan and keep the heat low to avoid having the cheese cook on the bottom. I have passed on the recipe to others for their X-mas parties.

Oh, my goodness! What a great recipe! I made this for a small dinner get together. They would have been happy eating only this (made a good dent in it nonetheless). This is definitely a keeper and will be made many a time. My husband was taste testing as I was making this and he liked it before I even added all of the ingredients. He also liked it warm and sometime I may try serving it as a warm dip. I only added about 6 oz of horseradish and used the Velveeta Mexican mild with jalapeno peppers. I didn't keep a close enough eye on the melting cheese and had to remove a small portion of it that cooked around the sides and bottom of the pan. Will melt it on low heat next time.

A great cheese spread. Everyone loved it, even someone who said "I hate horseradish, but I love this!" I halved the recipe, because I try not to have too many enticing snack things around the house, and I'm sure I would just keep eating this until it was gone, diet or no. It was easy, although I have yet to figure out how to melt velveeta without getting scorched cheese on the bottom of the pan!

This cheese spread is absolutely delicious! I used only 1/2 of the horseradish. Everyone loved it. It was very easy to make but I can see that if you didn't watch it every second you could ruin the whole batch,"Heaven forebid!"

I made this for my 73-year-old mother while I was visiting during Christmas. She LOVES horseradish and I thought it would be perfect. All the ladies in the condo complex were crazy about it! I used a full 8 ounces of horseradish which was a jar and a half, but for me, I would only use a 5 ounce jar. The texture thickens when chilled but is very spreadable. This is a great tasting spread! It was the holiday hit! Thank you!

I love the horseradish taste (even though I thought I didn't like horseradish) but I thought the Velveeta overpowered everything else. Next time I will reduce the amount of Velveeta. Thanks for posting it!

Great taste and super easy. Even my husband loved it and he's not big on horseradish. We went to the beach for the weekend last week and when we got there he asked me if I had packed any "bar cheese". I put this in empty Boursin cheese containers. I halved the recipe and it filled 3 containers.
