Food, Glorious Food!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

1 Tablespoon of Hershey's Cocoa
3 cups of sugar
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1.5 cups of milk (evaporated milk)
3 tablespoons of peanut butter
1/8 cup or margarine or butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of cold water in cup

Butter a large platter. Get the cold water ready in a cup and put it near your pot. Combine all dry ingredients; cocoa, sugar and salt. Mix them well. When mixed, add milk, stir well. Bring to a boil and lower heat. Cook until a small ball forms when a drop is placed in cold water. (Keep changing your water between tries) When a small ball forms, remove from heat and add peanut butter, butter, and vanilla. Stir quickly (it will be hardening.) Pour into a buttered dish and allow to cool. Cut into squares.


These recipes are very good. Before you decide what you will cook, put your pot of rice to cook then work on it. Everything goes well with rice. The Corn and Shrimp Soup is a new recipe. It is fantastic.
