Looking for a candy combo of chocolate, cranberry & cashew I caem across this recipe at candy.about.com, & it suited my needs perfectly! However, if your situation includes the bark sitting around a long time in warm temperatures, it's suggested that 'real' chopped chocolate be used & tempered so that it won't melt in the heat!
A pure joy when I bring these out. Little meatball with a taste that's original. From Book titled Eat shrink & be Merry. My boys love them I omit the red pepper flakes. I add broccoli and serve over rice or rice noodles.
This Espinaca Dip resembles the one at Jose Peppers, but most people have told me it is much better. You can decide for yourself. This is so easy and doesn't take much time out of your day. It is great for office parties too.
This is a tried and true recipe I borrowed from a relative. It is always a crowd favorite at parties. I don't think I've ever seen someone only take one bite. I use part-skim shredded cheeses to keep the fat low. No one can tell the difference. I usually put the pepper jelly on about 3/4 of the top in case some of my guests prefer a milder version. The red pepper flakes are also optional. It takes great with or without them.
Creamy, spicy, and something a bit different than what is usually served at a party. We have handed out this recipe countless times. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe and I think it originally came from allrecipes.com. This freezes and thaws well for a quick dip for company or a weeknight meal. We use light soup, cream cheese, Velveeta, and sour cream, so it's not quite so bad for us. I'm sure fat-free products could be used, but probably at the expense of the creaminess.
This simple candy shows up at all of my family gatherings .This recipe is quick and easy. The saltines may sound like a strange addition to something sweet, but I have never known anyone who made this recipe just once!
Blue cheese spreads usually contain port, or bacon as another option, but at a party with those who abstain from meat or alcohol, those may not be the best choices. This spread is wonderful for everyone. Bring this out to soften before serving. To extend serving time, you may want to set a dish of this in another dish of crushed ice.
Oh, you HAVE to try this one!! My family LOVES dips and spreads, and even the guys got really into this one. I even caught my uncle (who thinks guys are too "macho" for dips), eating it straight from the bowl with a spoon!! Best when made day of, and lettuce added just before serving. It gets soggy:(
