Bill Kates supplied this recipe as he made it on his very first job when he moved to Boston. He took the job as a soda jerk because he loved the Hot Fudge Sauce at Bailey's Ice Cream Parlor of Boston, Mass. I found the recipe inside his review of Recipe#202009 #202009, and was surprised he had not posted this version himself. Hot Fudge is serious in our family, so I made both the version Bill K made on the job and Recipe#202009. The result of my taste test war? Whatever chocolate you use, that quality will determine the quality of your sauce; skimp, and the taste suffers. I used Hershey's cocoa powder by accident when I made this version, and the distinctive Hershey's taste came through loud and clear. Except for the chocolate source, the end result of both recipes came out about the same. I prefer working in a double boiler because it is easier to keep the chocolate from getting too hot.
This great hot fudge sauce recipe that I changed a bit, is from Mother's Bistro in Portland, Oregon. It is very quick to make and is perfect for topping ice cream with. I like it because it's not too sweet.
While I was visiting my friend in Arizona, she had me help her make Sopaipillas. I loved them! They're mexican, but sold in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and other states near Mexico. You can literally point to the mountains at the back of her house and say "There's Mexico!"
Mexican fried breads.
Golden fried puffs, usually served with butter or honey for dessert. You can also try them with cinnamon and sugar.
These cookies are so named because it's what you'll be saying while eating these wonderful treats... Nom, Nom, Nom! Serve with a tall glass of cold milk. These keep in a covered container a long time, but no worries, they will go nom, nom, nom fast!
A nice, basic recipe for making yummy flan! Spanish influenced but also popular in the Southwest, Mexico and the Caribbean! This is also widely popular in Cuba and since there is such a large Cuban population in Florida, I guess that makes puts this in a Southern category too!
This is the original Chi-Chi's Mexican Fried Ice Cream. You can serve this on the fried flour tortilla sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar mix as it was done in the later years or in a sherbet glass as it was in the early 80's. At one point we even offered these in chocolate and strawberry as well. Prep time is for the ice cream ball to harden.
This is excellent, makes a lot, and keeps well. Be sure to follow the directions. I had it go sugary on me once and I believe it was because I tried to mix the water in too fast. Number of servings is difficult to decide - it has so many uses and sometimes I put a tablespoon over ice cream and sometimes I use a cup or more for recipes calling for caramel sauce. But since Zaar makes me pick a number I picked 48.
This mexican dessert is a not too sweet treat. The roll ups are a nice way to end a summer meal. For a treat, very lightly dust the roll ups with icing sugar. They are also perfect as a snack. By Mission Foods.
As hard as I tried I could not find a recipe for Vanilla Pudding mix that I could use as a base for other puddings or to add to other recipe's that I wanted to make, yet didn't want to buy a bunch of packages of pudding for. After 5 (yes I said 5) attempts I came up with one that was creamy enough, and tasty enough to call good. This can be made ahead...then just add a few ingredients and you have pudding. Great for gifting and camping...Higher in Calories yet low in sodium and potassium.*** NOTE*** for those missing the flavor of eggs or having problems with this setting up properly ... I found I liked it better when I added two egg yolks slightly beaten and put some of the hot mix in whipped it and added to the pudding mix as it cooked. You are right it adds to the flavor.
I found this recipe about five years ago on topsecretrecipes.com, but had forgotten about it until I tried mariposa13's recipe #123291. With one can of fat free sweetened condensed milk, you could make both recipes and have lots of healthy treats! You'll never miss the fat!
I made this recipe after falling in love with Coldstone and Carvel's Cake Batter Ice Cream.
I recommend using Splenda instead of sugar since there is sugar in the cake mix.
You can use 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract if you please. You can also use 3/4 cup of cake mix.
THIS RECIPE IS TO USE WITH AN ICE CREAM MAKER (MINE IS BY CUISINART)
I have made this quite often for a dessert. To save time you can bake the oatmeal/butter mixture, and then crumble hours in advance, just make certain to crumble the mixture while it is still hot. I have even sprinkled packaged toffee baking bits on top...yummmmmm! Prep time includes chilling time.
this is exactly like the blue moon ice cream that can be found in northern michigan at kilwins. Its also the same that i used to have in the summers as a kid in the 70's. there isn't any pineapple or alcohol in this!!
