Strawberry Coconut Balls

These are super easy and fun....... not to mention DELICIOUS!!!


1 large package shredded coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 Large package strawberry Jell-O
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Put all ingredients into a large bowl. Mix together. Form into balls.  If you like a neater look, you could also roll them in more Jell-O; buy an additional small box of the same flavor.  You can use any flavor of Jell-O that you like.  They really are quite striking in appearance and color.  They are best if eaten right away.

See I told you it was simple!=)

Oh Henry Bars

These are DELICIOUS!!! They are also very peanut buttery, and super simple!

1 cup light corn syrup
1cup sugar
1cup peanut butter
4 cups Rice Krispy's or Special K cereal
1 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

In large saucepan, combine corn syrup and sugar; bring to boil. Remove from heat, add peanut butter and stir well. Add cereal.  Press mixture into 13-by-9-inch pan. In microwave melt chips together, about 2 minutes, stirring after about 1 minute. Spread chocolate over rice krispy mixture. Cool and cut into bars. Makes about 15 to 20 bars. ( Depending on how much you eat before it's done=>).

These are especially great for peanut butter lovers!

Cute Lifesaver Cake!

This cake is really cute! It would also be good for Easter! You could use a cake mix and dye it different colors with food coloring, or do what I did, and make a white cake recipe.  So make your favorite cake and use my aunt's amazing buttercream frosting (at the bottom), and stick some Lifesavers on it!=)

Some interesting pictures I took while making my cake!

More pictures of my cake!


Aunt Jackie's Butter Cream Frosting:

Blend together 3/4 cup room temperature butter, 4 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract, and 3-4 tablespoons water. You may need to add extra water, depending on how thick you want it. You can also add food coloring to make your cake extra colorful!
