    Dip to fancy up a fruit platter

    Large tub of Cool whip
    Small Individual Strawberry Yogurt

    Stir together and plop in a bowl, Serve with fruit.



    I made this last year and litterally everyone at the party asked for the recipie.

    I HATE yogurt, I don't even like frozen yogurt , yet its soooo yummy in this.

    It seems to make the cool whip less sweet, which makes the fruit not taste tart when dipped in it

    I just found this on the Crockin Girls facebook page. I make similar fudge using a container of chocolate frosting and a jar of peanut butter. Melt it in the microwave and spread in pan. I believe I got the recipe on this thread. These look amazing!!!

    Stupid easy Fudge
    I thought it was too good not to pass on. This recipe is good if you don't have time, money, or not a great cook. You can use your small crockpot for this. You take one tub of premade frosting and one package of baking chips and melt the two together. Pour it into a lined or buttered pan and let it set up. If you want to get fancier you can. Below is a list of ideas.

    GERMAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE- german chocolate frosting & chocolate chips
    MINT CHCOLATE FUDGE- chocolate frosting & andies candy baking chips
    PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE- cream cheese frosting & peanut butter chips
    PEANUT BUTTER CUP FUDGE- chocolate frosting & peanut butter chips
    CHRISTMAS FUDGE- cream cheese frosting, white chips red and green cherries
    CHEAM CHEESE FUDGE- cream cheese frosting & white chips
    COOKIES AND CREAM FUDGE- cookies and cream frosting, white chips & about 10 oreos broken up and mixed in
    CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES FUDGE- chocolate frosting and cherry chips
    FANCY CHERRY FUDGE- cream cheese frosting, white chips, cherry flavoring, cherry peices & sliced blanced almonds
    MAPLE NUT FUDGE- cream cheese frosting, white chips, maple flavoring & walnuts
    BUTTERSCOTCH SUPERMEME FUDGE - carmel pecan frosting, butterscotch chips, nuts, & heath bits
    CHOCOLATE FUDGE - chocolate frosting and either chcolate or white chips.

    Theses are just some ideas. You can use vanilla or cream cheese frosting, white chips and any flavoring of your choice to make the kind fudge you want. Add ins can be any nuts, fruits (cherries, coconut, pineapple ect), cookies, candies like m&ms, or sprinkles. you name it. Once you get started you will come up with lots of ideas. If you use something like heath bits or sliced blanced almond; sprinkling some on top and it makes it look facny. HAVE FUN!!!!!!

    Time for this thread to get a bump up again!

    I just found this recipe to make quick 6-8 minute caramels. If you add sea salt to the top right after you pour into a pan, you can make your salted caramels. Or add any other ingredients, like nuts, to make your own homemade caramels.


    Microwave Caramels

    [​IMG]


    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup light Karo syrup
    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

    Directions:

    1. Combine all ingredients.
    2. Cook 6 minutes (or more or less time, depending on microwave oven), stirring every two minutes.
    3. Stir and pour into lightly greased dish.
    4. Let cool.
    5. Cut, wrap in wax paper & store in air tight container.

    Be sure to cut and package before it completely sets!


    You can also cut with your own cookie cutters:
