i LOVE my macaroni super duper cheesy! if i make it home made i can of course add more cheese. but my question is about box mac and cheese! i often try to add other cheese but what works best!?

-i've tried velveta slices, but it makes the mac and cheese so thick and kind of weird.
-i've tried parmesan, which is good, but not the traditional.
-today i tried that cheese in a can stuff (it squirts out) and i thought it was pretty good!

suggestions?

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

Maybe you could try using regular cheddar cheese, melted with a little bit of milk.

I find adding more milk when adding velveeta slices helps with the thickness a lot. But it remains box mac and cheese with velveeta, obviously...

I've never tried this personally, but my roommate adds a big spoonful of queso dip (you'd find it next to the salsa at the supermarket) to his mac and cheese. It's got a little spicy kick to it, too.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

Try freshly grated cheddar cheese, not the pre-shredded stuff that you can buy in a bag. In my opinion, freshly grated cheeses melt better.

I would def say chedder too, and if you are using milk nuke it to make it warm first and make sure you use whole milk other milk will make it runny
