Hot Fudge Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
I was in the middle of making a peanut butter pie and realized I did not have any Smuckers Hot Fudge Topping. I will NEVER buy Smuckers again. This is THE hot fudge you want, especially when using in a turtle cheesecake or peanut butter pie. I melted 1/4 c butter in a heavy saucepan (not double broiler), added 1/2 t salt, and then added 3-1/2 oz sqs of unsweetened chocolate because that's what I had on hand and the end result is chocolatey enough. I melted the chocolate on low heat and stirred constantly. I added 1/2 c sugar and stirred constantly to melt the sugar thoroughly before adding the next 1/2 c. I added another 1/2 cup sugar, but clearly needed liquid, so I added about 1 T of evaporated milk. I let the mixture just start to bubble, still stirring constantly. I added another 1/2 c sugar, some more of the milk, stirred constantly until the edges started to bubble again. At this point, I've added 2 c sugar and that is all I used. I added more milk, a little at a time until half the can was used. That's all I used of the evaporated milk. I continued to heat the mixture, stirring almost constantly for nearly 10 minutes. Do not rush this process! I removed from heat, let it sit for 2 min, then vigorously stirred with my wooden spoon. I repeated that process 4 times and let cool. I poured some of the fudge on the crust, then layered the pie filling, and used more chocolate to drizzle on the top. I have about 1-1/2 c left over. It's smooth and shiny and tastes fantastic!

Olive Lovers Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This is the craziest recipe! It was surprisingly good. It was midnight before I remembered that I was having a potluck at work today, so I needed a recipe with few ingredients that I had on hand as the store was closed. If you are unsure about your fondness for green olives, this probably isn't a recipe for you. But I tell you what, I got several requests for the recipe and my bowl was pretty much licked clean. Don't omit the ketchup...I know, I was skeptical but it adds the right amount of secret flavor so it doesn't seem like you just bit into a brick of cream cheese with a mouth full of olives. This is actually a keeper.
