1/2 cup butter
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare cake mix as directed and pour 2 cups of the batter into a greased and floured 13" x 9" baking pan. Bake for 15 min. In a heavy sauce pan over low heat, melt the caramel candies, butter and milk stirring until smooth, then spread evenly over the cake.

PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE FUDGE (didn't give) 2-13-10

3 tbsps. cold unsalted butter; more at room temperature for buttering the thermometer and pan
3 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup crushed peppermint candy
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
3 tbsps. light corn syrup
1 tsp. table salt

Lightly butter the face of a candy thermometer and set aside.

Put the sugar, cream, chocolate, corn syrup, and salt in a large (4-quart) heavy-duty saucepan and stir with a spoon or heatproof spatula until the ingredients are moistened and combined. Stirring gently and constantly, bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, 7 to 12 minutes. Cover the saucepan and let the steam clean the sides of the pan for 2 minutes.

Clip the candy thermometer to the pot, being careful not to let the tip of the thermometer touch the bottom of the pot, or you might get a false reading. Let the mixture boil without stirring until it reaches 236°F to 238°F, 2 to 5 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and add the butter, but do not stir it into the mixture. Set the pan on a rack in a cool part of the kitchen. Donít disturb the pan in any way until the mixture has cooled to 110°F, 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, line the bottom and sides of an 8x8-inch baking pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two opposite sides of the pan. Butter the foil. Set the pan aside.

Remove the thermometer from the fudge mixture. Using a hand mixer, beat the mixture on high speed until it is a few shades lighter in color and thickens enough that the beaters form trails that briefly expose the bottom of the pan as they pass through, 10 to 20 minutes. After beating the fudge, stir in 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy. Pour the thickened fudge into the prepared pan, using a rubber spatula to help nudge it out of the pot. You can scrape the bottom of the pot but not the sides; any crystals that stick to the pot stay in the pot. Smooth the top of the fudge with the spatula. Sprinkle 1/4 cup crushed candy over the fudge. Set the pan on a rack and let the fudge cool completely, about 2 hours. The fudge will be slightly soft the day itís made but will firm up overnight.

Turn the fudge out onto a clean cutting board and peel off the foil. Turn the slab of fudge right side up and cut it into 25 equal pieces.

The fudge will keep for a week to 10 days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

Remove from heat, and without stirring, add butter. Cool to 120°. Add peppermint extract and beat until mixture begins to thicken.

FREEZING MUSHROOMS 2-27-10

You can freeze mushrooms, but it will take a little extra effort on your part! Do not just throw them in the freezer and hope for the best, instead try following these instructions from cooks.com:

Freezing Raw (Freeze whole, for use within 3 months) :

Choose very fresh mushrooms; wipe with a clean cloth to remove dirt. Place each a little apart on a baking tray and open-freeze as quickly as possible. When mushrooms are frozen, pack into containers, fit on a lid and replace in freezer. Use within 3 months. Use straight from the freezer for pies, casseroles or stews or thaw for about 1 hour and use as required.

Freezing, Par-boiled:

Wash raw mushrooms. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to 1 quart rapidly boiling water. To keep mushrooms white, add 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice to water. Add mushrooms. Let water come to a boil again. Boil mushrooms 3 minutes. Rinse with cold water. Drain thoroughly. Seal in plastic bags. Freeze. Will keep about one year.

Freezing Sauteed Mushrooms:

Saute 1 lb. of mushrooms in butter with salt and pepper, using high heat for 1 or 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Cool, then store in small containers and freeze. Use frozen, or thaw to room temperature about one hour; use for omelettes, sauces or served on toast.
