Recipes!

Here are some recipes I've been meaning to post for a long time. They are fabulous. Try them!


E-Z fudge

3 cups (large 12 oz. package plus small 6 oz. package) semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
4 T. unsalted butter
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

1. Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water and set it on the stove.
2. Put all indredients in the top half and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula. Turn the heat on to medium-low.
3. Slowly melt ingredients together, stirring every few minutes. It should take about 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, line a glass making dish with plastic wrap, enought so that the wrap flops over the edges of the pan on all sides.
5. When the chocolate chips have all melted and the mixture is smooth, remove the top pan from the heat and pour into the prepared dish.
6. To get the right texture, let the fudge cool completely. If you must, you can hurry the process by putting the baking dish in a larger pan filled with cold water. After the fudge cools, put it into the fridge for at least an hour. Don't skip this step! It will be impossible to cut if you don't!
7. To unmold: It works really well if two people grab the ends of the plastic wrap and lift up, pulling the block of fudge out of the dish. Transfer fudge to a cutting board.
8. Use a pizza cutter to cut the fudge into 1-inch squares. Now serve or pack up!

Peanut Butter Fudge

2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 2/3 cup sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
1 (10 oz.) package peanut butter morsels
1/2 c. chopped peanuts
1 t. vanilla extract

Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes; remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients, stirring until smooth. Pour into a greased 9 in. square pan; cool completely. Cut into squares. Easy!

Buttery garlic bread

1/2 c. butter
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 t. salt
1 loaf italian bread
1 1/2 t. italian seasoning
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; add garlic and salt, and saute 2 minutes. Cut bread into 1 1/2 inch slices, and dip into butter mixture, coating both sides. Place on a baking sheet.
Stir together Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese; sprinkle on 1 side of each bread slice. Broil 5 inches from heat 4 minutes or until cheese melts.
(Honestly, the best homemade garlic bread I've ever had!)

Ohhh PB fudge!! I might try this when I get to Denver (where we are going for Christmas to be with Dan's parents and sister). Lucky for me I don't even have to write it down, I'll just print it from their computer when we get there.

Thanks!!!

(oh and you might want to know that the word verification word that I have to type in to post this is stud drab)
