Cream Cheese Chocolate Fudge M

Cream Cheese Chocolate Fudge

6 ounces unsweetened chocolate

6 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature

2 tsp evaporated milk or cream

4 cups powdered sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1.5 cups chopped nuts (optional)

Preparation:

1. Prepare an 8×8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Chop the chocolate into even pieces with a large knife. Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating.

3. Place the softened cream cheese and the evaporated milk in the bowl of a large stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until smooth. (Alternately, a hand mixer can be used.)

4. Stop the mixer, add the melted chocolate, and beat until well-mixed. Stop the mixer again and add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and mix until the fudge is smooth and well-combined. Stir in the nuts by hand, if you’re using them.

5. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and spread it in an even layer. Let it set at room temperature for 2-3 hours, or in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Green Tomato Jelly M

 

 

tomato jelly 2

 

Let me start off by saying I despise green tomatoes I don’t like them fried or pickled, They are nasty, HOWEVER a friend of mine called me the other night and said ” We are supposed to have a frost tonight, you better go pick all your green tomatoes, no sense wasting them” I hate wasting anything so, I asked her if she wanted them and she said she would come and get them. Well I picked them and I had 2 huge bowls. When she came over she brought some Jello and Sure Jell and set off showing me how to make Green Tomato Jelly.

OH MY GOSH! This is delicious. You can use what ever jello you want and the jelly will take on that flavor. I used raspberry.Trust me. try this recipe and you will love it. The only thing I would change about the recipe is I would cut the sugar down to about 3 cups its was very sweet.

Green Tomato Jelly
 
This does not look or taste like green tomatoes I used raspberry jello but you can use any flavor you want and the jelly will taste like the flavor of the jello you used. This is a great way to use up all those green tomatoes before the frost hits them.
