This time of year we’re all busy but we all want to have some goodies on hand for guests and family or just something yummy to drink. Here are three of my go to recipes that I thought you might enjoy.
EASY CHOCOLATE CHIP FUDGE
2 C (12 oz pkg) Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chips
1 1/3 C (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 C chopped nuts (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
Combined sweetened condensed milk and chips in a glass mixing bowl. Microwave on High about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes until mixture is smooth when stirred. add nuts and vanilla. spread in a greased 8 inch square pan. Cover. Chill until firm. Cut into pieces.
This fudge is melt in your mouth delicious and people will think you spent hours making it to get it so creamy.
BEST PUNCH EVER
1 6 oz box of cherry jello
2 C sugar
2 C boiling water
4 1/2 C cold water
1 46 ounce can pineapple juice
1 c real lemon juice
mix all together until sugar and jello is dissolved then freeze. I freeze portions in zip lock baggies so I can take as much or as little out of the freezer when I want it. Let it thaw a little then mix with ginger ale until it’s nice and slushy and serve. Kids and adults go crazy over this punch. You might want to double the recipe because it’s going to disappear in a hurry.
9 c water
2 c sugar
1 large frozen lemonade
1 large frozen orange juice (use orange juice for peach or apricot flavor, use grape juice for blackberry flavor)
3 c brandy (peach, apricot or blackberry)
Boil water and sugar 15 min. Add lemonade and OJ (or lemonade and grape juice for blackberry brandy) and brandy and stir really well. Freeze for at least 3 days. Add ginger ale and serve
Yum, yum, yummy!
Hope you enjoy and if you have any fast, fantastic recipes I’d love to hear them!!
