3 New Recipes

Time to share my new found Pinterest recipes from the weekend!!  I made 3 new recipes for my Nanny's 80th birthday party.  I absolutely fell in love with the Red Velvet Cheeseball and made another one Sunday night for church.  Enjoy the recipes below!!

**Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

Wash and hull strawberries.  Alternate strawberry and pound cake on a skewer, I used sucker sticks, and drizzle with white and/or milk chocolate.  Refrigerate and enjoy!!

**Snickers Dip

§  2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
§  1 (8 ounce) Cool Whip
§  1/4 cup brown sugar
§  6 Snickers bars, chopped

Mix all ingredients together.
Chill overnight to better blend the flavors.
Serve with pretzels or graham crackers.

**Red Velvet Cheeseball

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups red velvet cake mix, dry
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • assorted cookies and crackers (my favorite was Vanilla Wafers)
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add in the red velvet cake mix, the brown sugar and the powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and combined.
  • Turn the mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap up into a ball and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Put the chocolate chips on a plate or in a shallow dish. Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator and unwrap. Roll in the chocolate chips. (This might get messy!) Place on a serving plate and serve with cookies or graham crackers.
