How To Season and Re-Season Cast Iron Cookware

The following is a small excerpt from “The Hillbilly Housewife’s Cast Iron Cookbook“. It’s the most frequent question I get about cooking with cast iron skillets.  Over time, cast iron cookware develops a thin protective coating known as “seasoning” from the natural fats and oils associated with the cooking process. This coating fills in all […]

    take 1 can of frosting and a bag of chocolate chips, melt the chocolate chips add frosting stir and put in a butter dish. Easy Chocolate fudge

    Simple Fudge

    1 can Pillsbury frosting of whatever flavor
    6 oz chips of whatever flavor
    1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped nuts – optional

    The following order of making this fudge is important.

    1. Line an 8 or 9″ square pan with aluminum foil. Butter foil generously – otherwise it is difficult to get the fudge off the foil. It is next to impossible to get fudge out of an unlined pan.
    2. Melt chocolate chips 30 seconds at a time until melted.
    3. Immediately stir in frosting and nuts if desired.
    4. Spread in foil lined and buttered pan. When set, cut into 1″ squares.Can be refrigerated to set more quickly.

    White frosting with vanilla chips, peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips.
    Chocolate frosting (all varieties) with any chips.

    I sometimes make double layered fudge using two 8 or 9 inch pans. I spread a thin layer of chocolate fudge in each pan and let it set. Once it’s set, I make either white or peanut butter fudge and split it between the 2 pans.
    I’ve listed below some of the variations you might make –
    -1/2 – 1 c. of chopped pecans, walnuts or peanuts can be added to any of the variations
    -Chocolate chips/chocolate frosting – this is for the die-hard chocolate lovers J
    -Chocolate chips/vanilla frosting – not as chocolate-y
    -Peanut butter chips/chocolate frosting – tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup
    -Mint chocolate chips/chocolate frosting – tastes like an Andes mint
    -Cherry chips/chocolate frosting – tastes like a chocolate-covered cherry
    -Vanilla chips/any flavor frosting
    -Vanilla frosting/any flavor chips
    -chocolate chips/coconut/pecan frosting

    I had a candy recipe book several years ago with lots of easy candy recipes using canned frosting-book is misplaced-does anyone have these recipes?

  4. Barb says

    I am looking for a recipe that takes a can of frosting and melted chocolate chips mixed. This mix is then patted out flat to about 6X10 then cherries or nuts are put in it then it is rolled up into a log and rolled in chopped nuts or coconut. After chilling it is sliced. It is either from an old Betty Crocker or Pillsbury cookbook. I would appreciate any help in getting the directions
