Peppermint Fudge

Here is another fudge recipe that is pretty much the same as the Butter Rum Fudge a couple of posts below but is even yummier in my opinion. 🙂

1 pkg. white chocolate chips

1 can Pillsbury Vanilla frosting (you don’t have to use the brand name, but we found it to taste the best)

Few drops of peppermint extract (to taste)

2-3 peppermint candy canes, crushed

Line a 9×9″ pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. In a medium size pan, over low heat, melt white chocolate chips. Stir in frosting until mixed well and smooth. Stir in peppermint extract and then mix in candy cane.  Pour in fudge mixture into pan and refrigerate for at least on hour. Lift fudge out of pan and cut into small square pieces.

Butter Rum Fudge

I know it’s not Christmas yet, but I don’t have very many Thanksgiving type recipes so I’m going to start the Christmas ones early 🙂 .

Butter Rum fudge

1 pkg. butterscotch chips

1 can Pillsbury Vanilla frosting (you don’t have to use the brand name, but we found it to taste the best)

1/2 tsp. rum extract

3/4 cup pecans

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

In a medium size pan, over low heat, melt butterscotch chips. Stir in frosting until mixed well and smooth. Stir in rum extract and then mix in pecans. Line a 9×9″ pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Pour in fudge mixture into pan and refrigerate for at least on hour. Lift fudge out of pan and cut into small square pieces.  Enjoy, and a friendly reminder to not over indulge because it will be very easy to give into temptation! 🙂

Oreo Ice Cream Cake

I have made this cake for my birthday for the past two years in a row. It is really good. In fact, I just had it Saturday while celebrating my 19th birthday! As far as I know, this recipe was first given to my grandmother(Amma) from her former neighbor, Mrs. Miller, then Amma gave it to my mother.

1 – 16oz. package oreo cookies (the double stuffed are the best)

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 – 16oz. can fudge or caramel topping (caramel is my favorite)

1 – 8oz. container cool whip

1 cup chopped nuts(optional)

Crush cookies into crumbs. Mix with melted butter(I do that right in the pan). Press crumbs/butter mixture into the bottom of a 9×13″ pan. Slice ice cream and lay an even layer over crumbs. Sprinkle on nuts if desired. Spread fudge or caramel sauce over nuts (if used). Freeze for at least one hour. Spread on layer of cool whip. Freeze. Cut into squares to serve. Enjoy!
