Hello Abby’s Ingredients

Hi Everyone! 

I thought you might be interested in Abby’s recipe for the Hallow Eve ingredients. Hope you enjoy it!

 = 8 – cups of sugar,

 = 2 – sticks of butter,

 = 2 – 12 oz cans of evaporated milk,

Add ingredients to non-stick cauldron, if yours is not non-stick make sure you coat your cauldron so ingredients do not stick or burn. 

Remember to stir, stir, stir so ingredients do not burn or stick.

Cook them to soft ball stage 235 to 245 Fahrenheit degrees or your ingredients are really, really, boiling. Turn off. 

I usually don’t go higher then 235 degrees with my stove. If your mixture is bubbling, bubbling and shooting out bits of liquid, which is extremely hot, hot, hot – it’s time to turn off. Always be cautious when making any type candy!!!!

Now add  = 1 – 18 oz jar of crunchy peanut butter – stir,

 = 2 – jars of marshmallow Fluff or creme – stir,

  = 2 – 12 oz bags of semi-sweet morsels – stir, stir quickly.

You have to stir quickly for blending of chocolate.

Scoop your mixture into the 2 to 3 coated pans depending on how thick you want to make your “FUDGE”. Yes it’s “FUDGE”!

If you say I left out the vanilla I did. Over the years I usually forgot to add it and no one noticed. 

Have a great day! Hope

Hello October!

facebook fall basketHi Everyone!

  • October is here.
  • Time of year for fall weather.
  • Look forward to Halloween.
  • Plus Indian Summer. 

Let’s not forget the the “tricks” remember no eggs, soap, rotten fruit thrown around. What type of “tricks” = games you can play? Image result for free clip art games

I always looked forward to the great stuff in my era.

  • candy
  • fruit
  • gum 
  • chips
  • soda
  • thick slice of bologna from the butcher on the way home.

Wow! That was an eon or so ago. 

October is apple picking time. I love caramel covered apples with nuts. Delicious! Some like actual cinnamon candy on the apple. With the hard candy

I might break a tooth. At least with the caramel you can stick your tooth back in with it.

OM Gosh! That was a terrible thought.
