The year I made this I made 3 batches and served it to company on a deep red platter surrounded by holly sprigs. It looked like something from a magazine. I might add that I made them separately to insure that the fudge came out right. I cut into 2 inch squares so that is the yield I listed.
This is a crumbly, sugary old fashion fudge....from the back of the Hershey's Cocoa can. Cook time is cooling time. If you are having trouble with it "setting up", you probably didn't cook it long enough. I have learned (the hard way!) to not trust my candy thermometer and to use to soft ball stage water test to make sure it is the right temperature. Even under cooking it by 2-3° will result in a soft, sticky mess. It still taste good though. :)
Some good suggestions from reviewers: (I highly recommend reading through all the reviews before making this fudge!)
- don't try to bring up temp too quickly
- a large shallow saucepan works better than a deeper one
This is my alteration of a Better Home and Gardens recipe. I use this recipe because it calls for milk instead of evaporated milk, and I made a few small changes like using fresh puree instead of canned, more vanilla and added ginger. Because of the fresh puree it takes longer to bake.
This Homemade Pumpkin Pie recipe has been inspired by many different recipes, but its become its own unique recipe with a taste that'll surprise all of your friends and family come Thanksgiving and Christmas! I hope you enjoy it! Bon appetit!
These Brownies have basically become a part of my family. I've been making them since I was about 13 or 14. On one occasion when I was a teenager, I made them in a 9 x 13" pan and while they were cooling I went over a friends house on my street, when I came back about 45 minutes later, the only thing left in my pan were crumbs. My 3 bratty nephews gobbled it all up! Ohh the memories. They derive from a 1954 Sealtest cookbook called "641 Tested Recipes from the Sealtest Kitchens." The pages are yellowed, fraying and falling apart, but I love it so, especially because my sister Edna gave it to me and she has since passed away. These bake beautifully and create a chocolaty crust over the top and a chewy center. It is a basic recipe that surpasses in flavor many other "fancified" brownie recipes I have tried.
This is our family recipe for chocolate brownies that we make for Easter. They never hang around long so I try to make at least 2 batches at a time!
These are incredibly easy to make - the kids can make them without any fuss!
This recipe was given to me by my good Romanian friend, Carmen Witzig. She taught a cooking class with some Romanian dishes and this was one of them. It tasted really nice when she made it though I haven't tried cooking it myself yet.
In Romania it's called Homemade Chocolate. It's easy and sometimes I change the quantities, especially if I want less sugar. I like it with less margarine but the recipe calls for 250 gr.My DD likes to decorate it with pistachios.
My grandmother gave me this apple pie recipe after she made it for me during a visit about 5 years ago. I like to use Granny Smith apples, leave the peel on, and cut slices that are a little thick, but do whatever you wish! This is a very good pie and I'm always asked to make it! Thanks, Grandma!! (Very good served with vanilla ice cream!)
I found this peach cobbler recipe on the internet from the Salt Lick Restaurant in Austin, TX. Everyone loves this recipe so much I have to make a double batch! Feel free to cut back on the sugar. Everyone has and the peach cobbler still comes out perfect. :D Personally, I always use two bags of frozen peaches instead of canned.
These are absolutely the chewiest, moistest, fudgiest brownies ever! I have tried adding so many different things to the batter, and they ALWAYS comes out great. They are also great without ANY add-ins! BUT by varying the add-ins, you can make different brownies every week (or day!!) SUPER EASY PREP! So, add "whatever floats your boat" and you will not believe how yummy they come out :) Oh, and the recipe doubles just fine--use a 9 x 13 inch pan instead and add a few more minutes of baking!
I first made this during a vacation where my hostesses had no food on hand. I had to come up with something or starve. This is so simple, quick, delicious and fun to make! It is a kid and adult pleaser, and it can suit most palates. Adjust the butter and brown sugar if you are watching your diet.
