Another option for pretzel rods

Pretzel Rods
Caramel
Chocolate Almond Bark

Make a snake out of the caramel. Wrap the caramel around the pretzel like a candy cane. Dip in Chocolate Almond Bark (you could use better chocolate, but everyone likes it with the almond bark too). Then you can leave the chocolate alone, or dip in nuts, sprinkles, crushed candies, etc.

Fruit Dip (My family loves this)

1 Large Jar of marshmallow cream
8 oz. Cream Cheese
2 Tbsp. Orange Juice.


Charcoal

White Chocolate Almond Bark
Crushed Oreos

Mix together. Pour on aluminum foil or parchment paper. Let dry. Crumble up like charcoal. Great for school parties!

Glad you liked it Raamartin! It sounds kind of gross to hear--chocolate chip cheese ball--but when you see the ingredients it's not gross--just extremely good!

Melt choc. chips. Gently fold in pretzels and potato chips . Drop by tablespoon onto wax paper and harden in the fridge ( I use my N.E. walk-in refridgerator in the winter, otherwise known as the back porch )

Your "chocolate haystacks" recipe reminds me of what a friend of mine snacks on - plain Lays potato chips & a plain Hershey's chocolate bar. Perfect combo of salty & sweet - and VERY addictive!

I dip pretzel rods in slightly warm caramel sauce (a jar of Mrs Richardson's is good), then in chopped walnuts, heath brickle bits, chopped peanut butter chips, then drizzle them with melted chocolate chips and sprinkle on holiday sprinkles or colored sugar. The original recipe called for chopping the nuts and pb chips together, that batch led to my roommate naming them "kitty litter sticks". Even when we call them that, people fight over them. Last year I made 12 kinds of cookies and 5 kinds of candies, and these were the one I had to keep making more and more of
I saw these in a catalog this year for about $6 each!.

mmmmm!

Here's mine, though it's ripped off from a Disney treat! Just make rice krispy treats, and melt some chocolate chips. While the treats are still in the pan, spread the melted chocolate over them and add a sprinkle of colored sugar crystals. Once the chocolate is set, cut the treats out.

Yummy!

So far this year I made butterscotch fudge topped with coconut and chocolate mint fudge (chocolate chips with a drop of mint extract) topped with crushed candy canes. In past years I've also made peanut butter fudge and oreo/white cholcolate fudge.
I make fudge similar to this one. We call it microwave fudge. It's so easy and really great tasting.

1 12oz pkg (=2cups) chocolate morsels
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine the morsels and condensed milk in microwave dish (I use a large glass measuring cup). Microwave on high 3 minutes. Stir until mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and any additions. I like mine with nuts but always make half without nuts for other family members. Spread mixture evenly into a lined or greased 8X8 (9X9) pan and chill until firm. I line my square pan with wrap so I can lift the entire thing out when set up. It makes it easier to cut.

For Rocky Road fudge just add 1 C mini marshmallows and 1/2 C chopped nuts. For Black Forest Fudge add chopped red candied cherries, mini marshmallows, and chopped almonds. You can experiment with different mixtures depending on your family's favorites.

So glad to see all the recipes using chocolate. Walmart had dipping chocolate on clearance for 25 cents a container. I bought 20 containers so I'll be making all kinds of things now.

This is super easy and gets raves! Very velvety texture. I make it double decker by chilling the chocolate fudge then adding a layer made the same way, but with Reeses peanut butter chps. YUM!

Cornflake Wreath Cookies

1/2 cup butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 teaspoon green food coloring
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups cornflakes cereal
1 (2.25 ounce) package cinnamon red hot candies

1. Microwave marshmallows and butter on High for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave on High for 2 minutes more. Stir. (This can be done in a double boiler if one doesn't have a microwave.)
2. Add and mix quickly the coloring, extracts, then cornflakes. Drop by spoonfuls in clumps on greased wax paper and decorate with 3 red hots each.
3. Once cool, transfer to lightly greased serving/storage tray with lightly greased fingers.

We love these except for the red hots! we use red mini m&m's instead!

So far this year I made butterscotch fudge topped with coconut and chocolate mint fudge (chocolate chips with a drop of mint extract) topped with crushed candy canes. In past years I've also made peanut butter fudge and oreo/white cholcolate fudge.

Here's 2 of my favorites:

Toffee crackers:
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 sleeve of saltines
1 package of chocolate chips - melted
Crushed nuts, coconut, or whatever other topping you might like.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lay out all of the saltines on a cookie sheet. Melt the butter, add the sugar, and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute, and then pour over the saltines. Bake for +/- 12 minutes. Cool off for a few minutes, then spread the melted chocolate over them, and cover with coconut, nuts, etc.



Red and Green cookies:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour

Mix all ingredients well. Roll into 3 logs on wax paper, then roll the logs in colored sugar. Chill in the fridge until solid. Slice onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 3-5 minutes (they cook VERY quickly - when the bottom edge starts to spread, they are done)
