I have made this twice now, and it is fabulous! I love that I can control what I put in there, and I think it tastes way better than store bought. Thanks Connie, you made my week!!

This has a good texture, but I could really taste the powdered milk-a flavor I just don't care much for. But it is an easy recipe and useful for cheese sauces, and I really like knowing what's in those cheese sauces! Thanks~

Love this! Made it with sharp cheddar, monterrey jack and colby and it came out delicious. Next time, I will use the whole packet of gelatin, as we like a firmer cheese, but that is the only change I would make, and as that is based on personal preference only, this recipe is 5 stars!
