no title fudge

I threw this together while the family was at church today (still home with Fern). I plan on making it again with more ingredients so that it is measurements.

Semi-sweet chocolate chips
sweetened coconut flakes
sea salt

melt nutella and chocolate chips in a double boiler. (I used probably 6 oz chocolate chips --one cup-- and  few tbsp nutella, just what I had left in the jar)

once melted, stir in 1/4-1/2 c. coconut, and the same amount of raisins

put into dish to set, topping with sea salt before placing in fridge.

I find it is easiest to cut if you score it about half an hour after placing in the fridge.

(I will be making this again with the standard fudge base of butter, chocolate chips and marshmallows, then adding the nutella, coconut and raisins.

Momma Jane's Reuben

Submitted by Casey Van Camp...taste tested and deliciously approved!

We are assuming you are making several so might as well get enough ingredients!

1 loaf of pumpernickel-rye swirl bread
1 package of saurkraut
1 bottle of thousand island dressing
1 package of corned beef
1 package of swiss cheese
1/2 stick of softened butter

These directions are for 1 sandwich...make as many as you want!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Take 2 pieces of bread, butter the outside of each (like grilled cheese sandwichs) and place those butter side down on a cookie sheet

3. Spread thousand island dressing liberally on the inside of each piece of bread (don't forget the edges)

4. Place a slice of cheese on each piece of bread

5. Place slices of corned beef on ONE slice of bread (up to you how much meat you want!)

6. Pile a nice even layer on top of the corned beef (quantity up to you, just keep it even)

7. Close up that sandwich!

8. Put it in the oven for approx. 10 minutes or until golden brown

Enjoy with some pretzels!
