Best Fudge Ever At #4 & Another Appetizer

**I am changing my blog right now, so bear with me!**
I may have already said I this, I am not a huge fudge fan. But, this stuff is an exception. It is #1 in my mind for best fudge ever. The two tones make it so colorful and the taste, mmmm. You won't want any other fudge after this!

"Two Tone Fudge"
1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1/2 cup butter, softened, divided
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Directions: Line a 9-in. square pan with foil and grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugars, milk and remaining butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a rapid boil; boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; stir in the marshmallow creme until melted and blended. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Pour 2-1/2 cups into a bowl; stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts until chips are melted. Pour into prepared pan. Add the butterscotch chips to the remaining marshmallow mixture; stir until chips are melted. Pour over the chocolate layer and gently spread to cover. Refrigerate overnight or until firm. Using foil, remove fudge from pan; carefully peel off foil. Cut into 1-in. squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 2-3/4 pounds.

Hot Chicken Swirls?? I mean with that name they have to be good. And with that name and the taste, they are one terrific appetizer!
"Hot Chicken Swirls"

2 tubes (8 ounces each) Pillsbury® Refrigerated Reduced-Fat Crescent Dinner Rolls
1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Louisiana-style hot sauce
Separate each tube of crescent dough into four rectangles; gently press perforations to seal. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; spread evenly over rectangles. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seams to seal. Cut each into eight slices; place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 64 appetizers.

Those both look great! I do love fudge, and just about any fudge is likely to make me smile very very big when I eat it. Yours looks wonderful.

as a fellow blogger who can't stand changing her blog around (mainly because there seems to be so little in the way of good layouts) can I suggest and awesome site--which you might have heard of--
They have some fun stuff and it's so easy, all you do is put your layout on minima and then add an html gadget with the code you want from their site. (they also tell you how to make your own--the one on my blog I made myself.

Just a little note. Oh and I was hungry when I started wandering... now I'm starving. Holy Crow girl! Delicious!
