Buttermilk Ranch Cheeseball
I just made this cheeseball. I purchased a Kraft brand ranch dressing & dip oz ounce package. Since other reviewers said the whole packet could be too salty, I only used about 3/4th of the package. I also did as another reader suggested and added Worcestershire sauce and chopped dried onions. It tasted great. This is a good recipe for a change of pace when you don't want the traditional sweet cheese ball made with crushed pineapple. I also put whole almonds on top for the pine cone look.

Easy Sausage Cheese Balls
For those who say there is way too much baking mix in this recipe and they could not incorporate it, I had the same problem. I added some milk so the mix would not be so dry and I could incorporate it in with the sausage and cheese. It gave more of a biscuit quality to the sausage cheese balls, which was ok with me as an appetizer. Everyone ate them without any complaints; none were left. If you don't want to add milk, you just have to work more at smashing all the dough into balls, they will have a rather dry feel to them but the cheese will melt and make up for it.

Marshmallow Fondant
This is what happened to me, my first time ever with fondant. I am no expert but I thought that I would give it a try for a baby shower cake. Microwaving the marshmallows did not work. I followed the instructions but the marshmallows would not melt; they would puff up in the bowl then deflate. I have a standard over the oven microwave. I would zap them 30 seconds, stir, zap them some more. They would not melt, instead they started turning brown. So I threw them out and started over. I melted them in a large pot on low heat; they melted beautifully. I put the 2 lbs. of powdered sugar into my Kitchenaid with a dough hook. I poured the melted marshmallow mixture over the sugar then turned the mixer on low. It didn't take long to make a nice paste. I then kneaded the dough by hand and followed Wilton's direction on adding colors with a toothpick. I needed to make about 5 different shapes, so I would use a little dough, add a little color. I was not impressed with Wilton's colors. No matter how little or how much more I added, it never gave the color that I wanted; it looked nothing like the colors on their box. I would also like to say that if you are using the whole bowl of fondant to cover a cake, it would probably be easier to add the color in the mixer with the hot melted marshmallow & sugar so the color is fully mixed in. It is difficult to knead in color in a large batch of fondant by hand to get the designed color all through. The fondant does taste great, however.
