Melissa's Orange Candies

These are new to me, but they are yummy.

They are a handed down recipe so none of the measurements are exact. So this will require a lot of taste testing, dern the luck.

Mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 2-3 drops orange extract flavoring.

Taste to make sure it's strong enough.Add a drop more if necessary.

If it's not a very thick consistancy add a little more powdered sugar until it is.

Roll into a log and freeze for an hour.

Melt chocolate (easiest is the kind in a tub that you melt in the microwave).

Cut pieces of the orange log off and with a toothpick dip in the chocolate.

Let harden in the refridgerator.

Liz's Fudge

I love fudge! I love Liz's peanut butter fudge the bestest in the world. It is amazing. It is delicious. It is take your breath away fantastic. It is easy.

Put 2.5cups sugar and 1.5cups of milk in a pot. Boil. It will rise then thicken and fall. As it falls test it on occassion by dropping it into a room temp. cup of water. When the mixture drops in hard balls in the water take it off the heat. Mix in 1teas vanilla extract and 1cup creamy peanut butter. Stir and pour into a pan/dish and let cool.

But make sure to lick the warm fudge off of the pan, that's my favorite part.
