Our Head Custodian's wife made these and he brought them into the kitchen to share with us cooks! I'm not a huge fudge fan but these just literally melt in your mouth! She shared the recipe with us so I'll share it with you! (I haven't attempted them yet myself).

1 1/2 lbs. Milk Chocolate - melted
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla or 5 drops peppermint oil

Line 8" square pan with plastic wrap. Scald cream and let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in vanilla or mint. Beat chocolate with electric mixer. Stop the mixer and add cream all at once. Continue beating, cleaning bottom and side several times until smooth. (1-2 min.) Pour into prepared pan. Cool . Cut into tiny squares.
They melt in your mouth!

Danish Delight

We are having the Temple Prep. class at our home tomorrow night so I asked Mark what to make for dessert and this is what he suggested - sounded good to me!
My friend gave me these cute block letters for Christmas - they're reversible! I think they're adorable!

1/2 c. margarine - Melt in oven (300 degrees)

Add to butter,- mix and bake for 30 minutes stirring occasionally:

2 1/2 c. Rice Krispies

3/4 c. brown sugar

1 1/4 c. coconut

1 c. chopped nuts

(Take out 1/2 of above mixture)

1/2 gal. vanilla ice cream - soften and spread on top of mixture - sprinkle remaining mixture on top of ice cream - freeze for 2 hours or overnight.

Make as directed:

1 box Strawberry Danish Dessert

Frozen or fresh strawberries added to Danish Dessert

Serve with Strawberry Sauce

Hot fudge or Raspberry Sauce is good too!
