Dip to fancy up a fruit platter

Large tub of Cool whip
Small Individual Strawberry Yogurt

Stir together and plop in a bowl, Serve with fruit.

I made this last year and litterally everyone at the party asked for the recipie.

I HATE yogurt, I don't even like frozen yogurt , yet its soooo yummy in this.

It seems to make the cool whip less sweet, which makes the fruit not taste tart when dipped in it

    I just found this on the Crockin Girls facebook page. I make similar fudge using a container of chocolate frosting and a jar of peanut butter. Melt it in the microwave and spread in pan. I believe I got the recipe on this thread. These look amazing!!!

    Stupid easy Fudge
    I thought it was too good not to pass on. This recipe is good if you don't have time, money, or not a great cook. You can use your small crockpot for this. You take one tub of premade frosting and one package of baking chips and melt the two together. Pour it into a lined or buttered pan and let it set up. If you want to get fancier you can. Below is a list of ideas.

    GERMAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE- german chocolate frosting & chocolate chips
    MINT CHCOLATE FUDGE- chocolate frosting & andies candy baking chips
    PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE- cream cheese frosting & peanut butter chips
    PEANUT BUTTER CUP FUDGE- chocolate frosting & peanut butter chips
    CHRISTMAS FUDGE- cream cheese frosting, white chips red and green cherries
    CHEAM CHEESE FUDGE- cream cheese frosting & white chips
    COOKIES AND CREAM FUDGE- cookies and cream frosting, white chips & about 10 oreos broken up and mixed in
    CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES FUDGE- chocolate frosting and cherry chips
    FANCY CHERRY FUDGE- cream cheese frosting, white chips, cherry flavoring, cherry peices & sliced blanced almonds
    MAPLE NUT FUDGE- cream cheese frosting, white chips, maple flavoring & walnuts
    BUTTERSCOTCH SUPERMEME FUDGE - carmel pecan frosting, butterscotch chips, nuts, & heath bits
    CHOCOLATE FUDGE - chocolate frosting and either chcolate or white chips.

    Theses are just some ideas. You can use vanilla or cream cheese frosting, white chips and any flavoring of your choice to make the kind fudge you want. Add ins can be any nuts, fruits (cherries, coconut, pineapple ect), cookies, candies like m&ms, or sprinkles. you name it. Once you get started you will come up with lots of ideas. If you use something like heath bits or sliced blanced almond; sprinkling some on top and it makes it look facny. HAVE FUN!!!!!!

    I have a variation on the Chocolate Peanut butter tarts I saw it on hgtv a while back and made them.
    Use your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and make just like the other pushing them into a small muffin pan, or you can use premade sugar cookie dough and add 1 cup peanut butter. Then instead of pushing a peanut butter cup into it wait until the cookies cool and pipe in chocolate frosting so it kind of looks like a hersheys kiss. They are really good and easier than unwrapping candy if you want to make a bunch.

    Also I like to make the eclair cakes. You use vanilla pudding the larger box and make it according to the pie directions (less milk) then mix in a tub of cool whip. Layer this with graham crackers squares in a cake pan similar to a lasagna and at the top finish with graham crackers and then ice like a cake with chocolate frosting. hmmm maybe I just like chocolate frosting. :lovestruc
    Instead of the chocolate frosting try magic shell for the top..gets hard and its yummy :) i use the french vanilla pudding also.

    thank you to the person who posted the oreo ball recipe! i made some on friday (i think i made em a little too big, but oh well, lol) and i took a bite yesterday to see how they were before packing them up to give to DD8's teachers today and they're SOOOOO good! my DD8 is a very picky eater, but she actually ate the other half w/o being coerced! hehe
    you can use the nutter butter cookies too..make it just like the oreo balls.

    Time for this thread to get a bump up again!

    I just found this recipe to make quick 6-8 minute caramels. If you add sea salt to the top right after you pour into a pan, you can make your salted caramels. Or add any other ingredients, like nuts, to make your own homemade caramels.

    Microwave Caramels

    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup light Karo syrup
    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk


    1. Combine all ingredients.
    2. Cook 6 minutes (or more or less time, depending on microwave oven), stirring every two minutes.
    3. Stir and pour into lightly greased dish.
    4. Let cool.
    5. Cut, wrap in wax paper & store in air tight container.

    Be sure to cut and package before it completely sets!

    You can also cut with your own cookie cutters:
