pink fuzzy slippers recipe ♥
15 Nutter Butter Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I choose Jif)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon table salt
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
20 ounces pink confectionery coating / candy melts
#70 mini ice cream scoop (or a spoon)
rotary-style cheese graterparchment paper lined baking sheets that fit in your freezer
paper towels



instructions....






  pull apart the two peanut shaped cookies. Scrape the peanut butter filling off of each cookie using a knife or spatula, not your teeth:) Reserve filling.

Combine peanut butter, unsalted butter, whipping cream, and salt in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat for 20 seconds. Stir. If butter is not completely melted, heat for 10 second increments, stirring after each, until melted. Stir in powdered sugar. The fudge will become very thick. I usually finish stirring in the powdered sugar with my hands.


  • I know most  recipes don't call for heavy whipping cream,try the fat free version healthier!
  • Don't pack the powdered sugar into the measuring cup or you will have more sugar than needed. If this happens, your fudge can be come too thick and dry. To fix this, knead in a bit of heavy whipping cream until the mixture is malleable but still stiff.
  • If your kitchen is very warm, you may need to refrigerate the peanut butter fudge for about 30 minutes before trying to mold it into the slipper shape.

  • Use a #70 mini ice cream scoop or a spoon to scoop out 30 balls of fudge (about 2 teaspoons each.) Roll each scoop into a ball. Place a fudge ball on one end of a cookie. Use your finger to press around the edge of the fudge ball and the edge of the cookie sealing the two together. Repeat with the remaining fudge balls.

Use your finger or the end of a wooden spoon to make an indentation in each fudge ball. Pinch around the edge of the indentation creating the opening of each slipper.
Grate 4 ounces of the pink candy melts using a rotary cheese grater. Pour grated candy onto a plate.
Melt 16 ounces of pink confectionery coating/candy melts. Hold onto a slipper cookie by the sides of the Nutter Butter. Dip the cookie, peanut butter fudge side down, into the pink candy coating. To ensure that the top of the cookie and the indentation get covered in candy, move the cookie back and forth a few times in the melted candy. Lift the cookie out of the candy melts and allow the excess candy to drip off. I suggest you dip the cookie back into the candy melts, then quickly pull it out, then dip just the top of the slipper cookie back into the candy melts, then pull it out. Repeat this process three or four times. It will help pull the excess candy off of the slipper cookie. Lift the slipper cookie up out of the candy melts. At this point you may need to tap the cookie to remove any excess candy or you may have to use your finger to move some melted coating into the slipper's opening.



I tried dipping the entire cookie using a candy dipping fork, but found that the slipper cookies are awkwardly top heavy and difficult to dip. Also, I ended up with misshapen cookies if excess candy pooled around the bottom. I thought they looked much better when the bottom of the cookie was not coated in the candy.
Set the slipper cookie on the plate filled with the grated pink candy. Wipe your fingers on the paper towels because you will have candy coating on them. This is a messy job! Immediately sprinkle grated pink candy over the cookie, coating the entire thing. Let the cookie sit in the candy shavings for a minute. Then remove it and set it on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat, dipping and coating each of the slipper cookies. Freeze slippers for 5 minutes to set the candy coating. Remove from freezer and allow to come to room temperature before serving. Store in an airtight container. supercute!

spa party appetizer ♥

Ingredients:




2 - 8 ounce blocks cream cheese, softened
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
8 ounces Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
1-2 tablespoons taco seasoning (season it to your taste)
1 fresh mozzarella cheese roll
1/2 cup guacamole or pureed avocado*
2 slices cucumber
1 roasted red pepper

*I prefer the flavor of guacamole on the cheese ball, but you may just like pureed avocado. If you are using store bought or fresh guacamole, strain it through a fine mesh stainer to remove all of the chunky bits

Special Equipment Needed:

food handling gloves, optional

Instructions:
Wash the face mask with warm soapy water. Dry. Line it with a piece of plastic wrap.
In a bowl combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Monterrey Jack cheese, and taco seasoning. Stir well to combine. I like to put on some food handling gloves and just mash it all together using my hands. Press the cheese mixture into the face mask. Smooth out the top surface then fold the plastic wrap up over the cheese and smooth out even more. You can, if you want, refrigerate the cheese ball for up to a week. You want to decorate it close to the time you serve it.
If you want to decorate it now, just un-mold it and set it on a serving platter. The woman's skin will be very wrinkled. Use your finger to smooth away the wrinkles (wouldn't it be great if that worked in real life?)Unroll the mozzarella cheese roll onto a cutting board. The two ends of the roll wont open up too flat, but you will easily be able to cut out a 10"-12" piece of flat cheese. Cut that piece in half lengthwise. The underside of the cheese, although wrinkled, is much more smooth than the top side. Flip both slices of cheese over and make sure the top side shows when placed on the face. It will really look like a towel.
Pick up one strip of cheese and set it at a diagonal across the left side of the face. Press the cheese up against the head. You want to form the cheese around the top and side of the head then cut off the excess cheese. Lay the second piece of cheese in the opposite diagonal direction across the right side of the face and repeat the process.
Spread guacamole or pureed avocado over the face. I think I would have liked my face a little better had I left more of it exposed. Try to spread the guacamole in an oval over the face, leaving some of the pale orange cheese ball showing. Place cucumber slices over the eyes. Cut lips out of roasted red pepper and place on face.
Serve. and enjoy again credits for this one guest post friday..http://www.hungryhappenings.com/
