Candy, Old recipie and new...
This is a little candy treat that someone made for the quilt show. I thought about making some for Blessed Hope, but nah, too fussy and decided instead to make fudge. Here's my recipe from the church cookbook in Lexington that Kynda gave me.
1 pound of margarine
1 pound of Velveeta cheese
4 pounds of powdered sugar
1 cup of cocoa
1 Tablespoon of vanilla and nuts if you wish.
In a saucepan, melt the margarine and cheese. Sift the cocoa and sugar , add it to the margarine-cheese mixture, add vanilla. Pour it out and it's fudge. Makes 6 1/2 pounds, is never fail and cheaper than any other fudge.
We had about 40 at dinner last night. Val made some really good pasta dishes and we had a huge salad. And fudge.
ONE MORE THING this Thursday morning, you gotta see this post and read the legend of the porcupine by Tennessee Granddaddy. Click here for the cute pictures of the baby porcupine and sweet story.
See y'all soon on your posts.
