Want to make yummy fudge in less than ten minutes?
Well, look no further-this recipe is easy, fast, and delicious!
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 can (14 oz) of sweetened-condensed milk
dash of salt
1 1/2 ts vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans (or more if desired, I like to be rather liberal with nuts :-D)
Line an 8" square pan with wax paper. Melt the chocolate chips, sweetened-condensed milk, and salt over medium-low heat in a heavy saucepan. When melted through, stir in vanilla and then chopped pecans (or you could sprinkle on top after spreading). Spread the fudge evenly in the prepared pan. Voila, you're done!
-For richer fudge, use all semi-sweet chocolate chips. For sweeter fudge, use all milk chocolate chips. Or, use any combination of the two to achieve desired sweetness :-)
-Like sweet and salty? Try peanuts instead of pecans.
-Or, you could stir in 1/4 cup-1/2 cup of peanut butter after removing from heat for a yummy peanut butter treat.
-For a minty morsel, add a capful of mint extract (or more, to taste, depending on preference)
-stir in one cup of marshmallows and 1/2 cup of nuts for Rocky Road fudge
-sprinkle chopped up candy canes, or candy bar pieces, of white chocolate chips on top while spreading
The best part of the party is the goodie bag, we all know that! Don't disappoint-give the girls what they want! These Homemade Party Favor "My Little Kitty" Goodie Bag were a huge hit at my little granddaughter's birthday party, and they're bound to be the rage at your next party as well!
Looking for a fun activity to do for that bridal shower you're throwing? Look no further! We put a great twist on this classic bridal shower 'video groom interview' to make it especially entertaining :-) We came up with some common (and not so common) questions to see how well the bride and groom really knew each other, and they had everyone laughing the night away! For the full instructions of how we played our game, just clickHERE. But, for a good laugh, just read on! Some of the best parts of the night were when the bride or the groom couldn't quite decide on an answer. When asked "how would you describe your first kiss?" our groom couldn't quite decide between option A and option D--leaving him with the answer "it was a sloppy peck." How did they pull that off? The laughs continued when the bride responded that the "ideal man" (her fiance) was the "strong and silent" type...but according to his answer, he seemed to think that he was the "life of the party" (I guess they must go to some pretty dull parties?) This sweet groom didn't want to say anything negative about his bride-to-be, so when we asked him what annoyed him most about his fiance, he reluctantly chose A-her relentless strive for perfection-but apologized the whole time, stating over and over again that it really didn't annoy him! Finally, we asked, "What rude awakening is ___(the bride)_in store for?" The options were:
a. Socks and underwear everywhere
b. The toilet seat always being up
c. Unidentifiable bodily noises
d. Ridiculous requests in the middle of the night. Our naive bride answered A, but her soon-to-be spouse had something a little saucier in mind and answered D! In our version of the game, the bride got to open the present if she got the question right, but her mother got to open it if she didn't! In this case, mommy got to open some lacy lingerie! I don't know what was redder-the negligee, or the brides cheeks...
This last week was my little granddaughter's birthday, and I wanted to do something special for her. She's obsessed with Hello Kitty right now, so I made her this adorable apron. She wore it around all day! This is a simple way to make a great surprise for any little girl you know :-) The pattern pieces and instructions can be downloaded HERE
