German Chocolate Cake Frosting II
Standard recipe for German Chocolate Frosting that worked like a charm. I increased to 16 servings to use the entire can of evaporated milk AND because I'd rather end up with too much than have to make another batch! I used it to fill and top a gluten-free chocolate cake (3-8" rounds) and for the filling of my chocolate macarons. I'd recommend a med or med-low temp or this will take forever... you just have to keep whisking and scraping the bottom with a rubber spatula and you'll be fine with a higher temp. Yum!

Hard Candy
Worked like a charm! I made 1/3 of the recipe and it was more than I needed for the accent work on a "Frozen" themed cake. For reference, it could have easily spread out to cover a half sheet pan. Also... I made it on a whim and didn't realize I only had (3!!) jars of DARK corn syrup, but I went with it anyway, dying it blue at the end, unsure if the blue would really come through and it worked perfectly!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)
I only wished I had naan to serve with it! I didn't feel like venturing out in the rain to get some, but that's the only thing I can think of that would've made this recipe better! I subbed 2% milk for the half-and-half and used chicken breast. For the ginger-garlic paste, I simply made my own with my knife and garlic press. I can only imagine how much more developed the flavors will become by tomorrow evening when we eat the leftovers!
