Fudgy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
I have made this twice. I only use 1/2 the amount of butter called for. It comes out great. Cutting down the butter might help those of you who are having trouble with it being too runny. Otherwise, you might want to make it ahead, refrigerate and rewarm. I now keep a container of this in my fridge all the time. It is great for fruit snacks, ice cream, etc. This is a good basic recipe. I can think of a lot of cream....fruit zest, etc. I cannot wait to try them. THANKS HERSHEY'S. I love your chocolate!!

Chocolate Orange Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2003
WHAT A MESS!!! In my opinion there is way too much liquid in this recipe. I planned to make these for my husband for Valentine's Day. I followed the recommendations submitted by other reviewers and chilled well/froze etc. I understand that weather conditions etc. can play a big part in the success or failure of a recipe but I could tell from the very beginning that this was not going to work because there was too much liquid. I had planned on a "love basket" and these were going to be the center piece... in a lovely container. I actually made 2 batches, neither of which came out. (You definately want to double this recipe unless you want VERY tiny little truffles). I was desperate..... at this point my husband would be home in 1 hour and I was NOT going to the mall to pay way too much for the name brand chocolate. I managed to find some more chocolate and started over. I doubled the recipe. I cut the butter and the cream in half. I kept the liquor the same. I followed the directions as usual up to this point where you "try to shape them into balls." After all the ingredients were mixed I got out my large tub of powdered sugar and just started adding it. I added and added and added until I came up with something that I could work with. I shaped them into balls and then froze them for approx. 10 minutes. I then dipped then in the chocolate. The recipe needs a lot of work but the taste if WONDERFUL. My husband is somewhat particular and said immediately th

Santa's Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2003
I am giving this 5 stars because of all the compliments that I received. I made this for a Christmas Eve party. Those who tried it really liked it... a lot. I personally am not a big fan of store bought cake mixes and was not really happy with the cake itself. When it first came out of the oven it was very dry. I thought it was not going to be good at all but I really wanted to try the icing so I made it anyway. I will have to say that after it sat a while the cake did not seem as dry and the icing is awesome... if you like peppermint, which I do. I am already planning on making this next Christmas. I am going to experiment with a homemade cake, though. I decorated it with peppermint candies and it made a very tall but very attractive cake. Next year I will also probably only make 2 layers because I could not get the glass cover on it... it was too tall and since we have to travel this is a problem.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: May 29, 2002
This is the best wheat bread recipe I have ever tried. I made it "as is" with wonderful results. The second time I increased the honey to 1/2 cup, increased the yeast to 3 tsp, and added 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup wheat germ, 1/4 cup milled flax seed and 1/2 cup sunflower seeds. My husband raved over this, my 20 m.o. daughter said "yummy", and I smiled knowing how healthy it is for them. Thanks for such a delicious and adaptable recipe.
