  1. OOOOOOOooooo you had me with that Andes chocolate Fudge that looks divine! I would have t watch making that though, I would eat the whole batch up bite by bite!
  2. loving the Andie's Mint chocolate fudge and the rolo's caramel apple dip i'm definitely going to have to try these! thank you for the recipes!
  3. Thank you so much for sharing my recipe. Off to check out the others. Sharing!
  4. We make fondue with the leftover chocolate. An easy recipe is about 10 oz. of chocolate, 15 large marshmallows, and 2 cups of cream (or half and half if you want it lighter). The measurements don't have to be precise either. Serve with lots of fresh fruit, extra tiny marshmallows, pound cake, or whatever else you fancy. It makes enough for about 8-10 servings in my household. My husband I'm sure would love the Caramel Filled Pretzel Cookies. He is on some weird phase of loving all things pretzel related. lol
  5. We always have to many leftovers of everything after the holidays, I love using leftovers to make new recipes, especially the sweet stuff.
  6. David Fultner says
    This will be great for clearance sales.
  7. I'd like the Candy Cane Syrup. Thanks for the recipes.
  8. Good ideas, give away the goodies so they are sitting around either.
  9. Awesome ideas! Absolutely LOVE Rolos! thanks so much for the great recipes!!
