Kahlua Kissed Strawberries

Next week, kissed in Kahlua!

Next week, kissed in Kahlua!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner and fresh strawberries starting to show up in our grocery stores, here’s a tasty treat I’m secretly thinking up for husband next week! Oops, forgot that he reads all my posts, secret’s out now for sure! We’re not ones for going out on holidays, we just enjoy each others company over a home-cooked meal, maybe a good romantic movie afterwards and then, well we’re not going there, ha ha! This recipe comes from my Kahlua recipe booklet and if you follow us you know we make our own homemade Kahlua  for cooking and you know, those medicinal purposes we all need once in awhile! And with that, let’s make a treat for our soul mates……

Kahlua Kissed Strawberries
 
Ingredients
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate pieces
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
  • 2-3 pints fresh strawberries, washed and patted dry (use only the unbruised, firm berries)
Instructions
  1. In the top of a double boiler, melt the chocolate over simmering water.
  2. Add milk and remove from heat.
  3. Add Kahlua and whisk until smooth.
  4. Let cool until thickened (about 1 hour).
  5. Hand dip strawberries and place on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper and refrigerate.

 

Maybe these with a nice bottle of bubbly…………enjoy!

Kahlua Fudge Brownies

Wow, what a great Thanksgiving we had! I bet you thought I had forgotten about cooking-with-mama, but I’m back! After cooking for two days for more company than we’ve had in a long time for Thanksgiving, Friday I just chilled out and vegetated because some of the company was returning on Saturday for another visit that lasted into the wee hours of the night, really late for us senior citizens, ha ha! No complaints though as we got to meet my granddaughter’s husband for the first time and his lovely daughter Jasmine. My granddaughter kept referring to me as great-gram and it was strange to hear that term used for me but, I guess I had better get used to it with our other granddaughter due in July with her baby! What a difference a year makes. It was also the first time in many moons that we had both granddaughters here for the holiday which made it even more special! Well today, we already have the Turkey Day decorations put up and now it’s onto Christmas decor and with Thanksgiving so late this year, I am going to have to hustle things up a bit, kinda hard for this old broad!!!

Our Thanksgiving table…2013

I thought today, I’d stick to a dessert that was in my Kahlua brochure and something I will be making to share with friends and family when I make their baked gifts for Christmas…………..

After not typing for awhile, my fingers aren’t working too well today, so forgive any misspelling or typos! Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day with no disasters in the kitchen! I had one this year, the haunted apple pie. With leaves cut out of the top crust, it looked like it was a haunted ghost and then on top of that, it slide out of my hands when I was removing it from it’s cooking rack, sliding all the apple to one side, Mama Mia!

Apple pie boo...boo!

Apple pie…boo…boo!

But with my homemade Kahlua already in the frig, these brownies are a must! Hope you enjoy!
