Frying pan fudge

this is a unique and delicious fudge recipe!
I think it's the very best fudge recipe I have found, perfect everytime. Oh they call it frying pan fudge, not because they make it in a frying pan but because it is flater like a pan. disc like.

2 1/2 cups sugar
1 stick margarine
6 oz. canned milk
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans or other nuts
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

Chop nuts and set aside. Mix sugar, margarine, and milk together in aheavy frying pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook six more minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and add chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Stir until fudge begins to form. Then quickly add vanilla flavoring. Drop fudge on wax paper with a teaspoon.

Yule Log Cookies

Nothing says Yule like a Yule log. Nothing says Christmas like cookies. So this combo "Yule Log Cookies" says it all!

1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
red and green decorator icing

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a medium bowl, beat the brown sugar and margarine until blended.
Add the egg; beat until well blended. Lightly spoon flour, baking powder, baking soda, and spices; mix well.

Divide the dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough with your hands to make two 10 1/2 inch logs; flatten slightly to 1 1/4 inches in diameter.

With a spatula, place the logs 2 to3 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Dip a non-serrated knife in water; score each log diagonally at 3/4 inch intervals.

Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until set and no longer moist. Cool for 5 minutes. With a serrated knife, cut the logs at the scored lines. Cool completely.

Decorate each cookie with decorator icing to resemble a holly leaf and berries.



Almond Joy or Mounds Candy bars

This candy bar recipe makes many candy bars to wrap and share with friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors.
Servings: 25 candy bars
Prep: 1 hr
Total: 1 hr 30 mins
taken from better homes and gardens

1-1/2 pounds dipping chocolate or confectioner's coating

Heavenly Bon Bons

. This chocolatey peanut butter angel says, "Eat me and you shall find true fulfilment!" So does she speak the truth, or is she a devil in disguise?

•2 cups of crunchy peanut butter (never ever use creamy...ugh!!!)
•1 lb. box of confectioners sugar
•3 packs of semi-sweet chocolate chips
•1/2 cup of butter
•3 cups of Rice puff cereal (Rice Krispies for the US)

Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler (no double boiler no problem....simply use a glass bowl over a pan)

In a separate sauce pan, melt both the butter and peanut butter over low heat so they don't burn (stir constantly).

In a large bowl, combine the sugar and rice puff cereal. Pour butter mixture over the cereal mix. Blend with hands and form into 1/2 inch tightly packed balls.

Dip the balls into melted chocolate chips and place the balls on a wax-covered cookie sheet.

Put the pan into the fridge for approximately one hour.
