Pecan Pie Muffins
Made these muffins last night. The cooking time ended up being 25 minutes longer. I used the large muffin tins, the butter melted into a liquid, making the batter soupy halfway thru cooking. They are now very heavy, but moist muffins. My husband loves them, I'm not a fan.

Classic Caramel Corn
I buy my popcorn from Vic's, then I don't have to pick out the unpopped kernels. This is great, I made 6 or 8 batches, each one was perfect. I gave it away in big tubs from Walmart for Halloween.

Foolproof Chocolate Fudge
I've been using this recipe for years. I do it exactly as it is written and it comes out perfect every time! It is rich and creamy, most people think you spend a long time making it, it is that good. Thank you for sharing it on this site.
