There’s a new year’s eve tradition I have of making platters of snacks for us for the holidays, so I have included my fruit dip here and an alternative for a more low cal version you might like too.
Nice to know some things don’t change that much. WordPress remains the same here for years now. As I look back I see that I have had this blog as a backup for Spaces days for 7 years. Some posts here were original to WordPress too back in those days . It sure boggles the mind at all the writing I have done. The things that we talked about over at MSN are sure different from what we do now days. Maybe some of you remember when we used to have contests and events and even special days at MSN. Everyone joined in all across the MSN community. One of my favorites was about our “Cherished Childhood Toys Event”. Here is a peek at how it was done..back in 2005.
Pardon me…but I am still trying to fix my blog here to suit me. Never satisfied and loving change, I keep trying to get something that works for me. WordPress is not as easy to deal with as Blogger is..never was, so I keep plugging along..hoping something works with all the links and still connects to Facebook like I want it to. Sooo not happy with the one I had I am still looking.. Not a happy camper.
Woke up to rain today and my sinuses not liking it tried to squeeze my head into submission. I, on the other hand was VERY HAPPY because it is NOT SNOW and I am not shoveling or dealing with it. Sipping hot tea and sucking on peppermint candy cane seemed to ease it some.
By the way, while I think of it.. if you haven’t tried those Hershey Peppermint Kisses.. OH they ARE Delicious!!! I wish they would make them a year round thing not just seasonal. They have one called DARK CHOCOLATE with Mint Truffle. If you love the darker chocolate you will love this KISS!! Get them while you can..they may not last long.
Well not much going on here so will end this still searching the backgrounds so bear with me it might be a bumpy ride.. 🙂
P.S. What a ripoff buying those candies on- line.. can you imagine the total cost with shipping and handling..sheesh.. 😦
I have made my second batch of the “fast” Rachael Ray fudge only this time I used mostly the white chips and some new mint chips I saw in the store. they are white and red. WOW did this make a nice batch. I used one bag of white chips and one bag of these and made sure I did not melt them too long. When I poured it into the dish I placed some sprinkled on top.
IF YOU LIKE MINT.. this is for you!!! Yummy!!! Four ingredient fudge that requires NO real COOKING. If you can melt in the microwave you can do this!!
1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 bag of white baking chips, one bag of ANDES PEPPERMINT CRUNCH chips, 1 tsp vanilla. Melt all in large bowl in microwave about two minutes. Save a handful of mints out for the top of your fudge. Don’t melt this too long because it will get stiff really fast. I pour this in a glass 13×9 dish that has been lightly buttered on the bottom. This will set up fast and be rich enough you can cut in small pieces. Makes very nice gift to give all wrapped up in cellophane on a pretty dish! If you want to make this more minty crush up some candy canes and throw them in the mix. It will really be tasty!
P.S. Yes this fudge will turn a little pink looking..the photo above is not mine.. my battery died! 😦
