Easy and GREAT:


Peanut butter crackers in chocolate (doesn't sound as good as it is)

Take 2 Ritz crackers, put peanut butter in the middle to make them a sandwich, then dip the entire thing into melted chocolate (with parafin wax in it to make the chocolate set/not melt). Viola! An AWESOME treat in less than 5 minutes.

The Chocolate Bark and Almond Bark are big bricks of chocolate the are scored to make it easier to break. They are easy to find this time of year and are usually with all the other baking supplies. Our store usually has a whole section with different chocolates, chips, fruit, flour, sugar and everything you need all together.
The Candy wafers that I have are from Michaels they are usually by the cake decorating section. They come in a bag and are little round quater size discs that melt and can be poured into molds or for dipping.
To me neither of these taste like Hersheys they are not a milk chocolate but a baking chocolate to be used in your baking although they can be eaten alone and are not bad just different.

Here's another really pretty one... Petit fours- all you need is ready made icing(you can tint if you like) and frozen pound cake. Cut the cake into 1 inch squares. Take your frosting and microwave it until just creamy(goes really fast less than 30 seconds) Dip your cake cubes into the frosting and let dry on a rack(put wax paper under it..it is the messy part) I decorate the tops with either more piped on icing(like initials) or use little edible decorative candies from the cake aisle. So easy and adorable. I never thought of microwaving the can of frosting..but it worked perfectly.

Should the pretzel sticks that need dipped be used in parafin? Where do I find this at?
And if it doesnt taste like hersheys, will people still like it? Im worried about things tasting bad---is there anyway to make it taste better?

When I dip the pretzel sticks I use regular old semisweet chocolate chips(we use Nestles) and it works great. I didn't notice if they gave the tip of having your melted chocolate in a tall narrow glass or vase- easier to dip.

The big pretzel rods are also delicious dipped in white chocolate...That is what I always make and I never have any leftovers!

I really like the peanut butter fudge recipe....sounds sooo easy.
Has anyone made this before? The recipe says reg. size peanut butter, the short or tall one? I am not sure what size they are talking about? Any ideas?

I think the best way to melt chocolate is via a double boiler type method. Heat small amount of water in a pan over the stove until hot, but not boiling, and put a large metal bowl on top of the pot (obviously a bigger one then the opening of the pot, you don't want the bowl floating on the water It should sit OVER the water, not ON the water) Put the chocolate chips in the bowl and melt them. I use a silicone spatula to stir. Just be sure to not let moisture get into the chocolate or it will seize, and be sure to stir constantly. Remove as soon as the chocolate is melted and shiney.

But to be fair, I have used the microwave when I melt chocolate bark. It just seems to work okay with the bark variety. Just take it slow, stop and stir frequently. Haven't been as successful with microwaving higher quality white chocolate.

Talking Stained Glass Windows

Our family favorite is super easy:

Melt a bag of chocolate chips and a stick of butter in a large pan. Let cool for about 15 minutes. Stir in a bag of colored minature marshmallows -plain, white works too but not nearly as pretty in the end.

Form the mixture into 3 logs on waxed paper. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, coconut or powdered sugar. Roll up and put in the refrigerator until firm. These are really pretty when sliced.

These are extra yummy if you also stir in a spoonful or 2 of peanut butter into the chocolate mixture and top with chopped peanuts.
