One year in the late 1960′s when we were poor, newly married and college students, we decided to give all our family Bourbon Balls for Christmas. These were popular with our friends and we had lots of fun making them ! They are easy and fast and just need a day or two to blend all the flavors.
My daughter & son-in-law gave me a sweet little Christmas with Paula Deen book, full of stories and recipes…my favorite kind of cookbook ! The most unusual recipe in the book, and maybe the most unusual recipe I’ve ever seen, is the “Chocolate Cheese Fudge. It calls for Velveeta Cheese ! I mean, if you are from the South, Velveeta Cheese is a staple ! But I have never heard of it being used in a recipe for Fudge !! I had to try it. It’s tasty…not really a gourmet fudge, but good and quite unique!
Hope you enjoy the recipes and may your Christmas be full of joy and peace and lots of tea !!
