Biscoff and Toffee Popcorn

Do you like Biscoff? I just love it! I keep waiting for the time I am grocery shopping, and I don't buy 2 jars! I think it is clearly on it's way to being an obsession for me. So I guess I will have to feed this craziness until it stops. It's the only thing I can do!  :) I am also loving toffee and popcorn right now, so I thought I would put them all together, and make the ultimate treat! So, yum!
Biscoff and Toffee Popcorn
2 bags of popped microwave Popcorn
1 cup of Biscoff Spread
1/2 cup of Heath English Toffee Bits
Melt the Biscoff in a double boiler...
 until it is smooth.
Pop your popcorn, 1 bag at a time.
It is easier to control when you are mixing the popcorn.
Pour the melted biscoff over the popcorn,
 Mix the biscoff and 1 bag of popcorn together.
After the first bag is mixed together, add the other bag in.   
 Add the toffee bits and mix in.
 Spread the popcorn into a large pan, spread it out so it can dry.
After it is dry, munch out and enjoy! 

Thanks for joining me today!

Happy Birthday Elvis!

Today we are celebrating the birthday of Elvis Presley. The KING would be 77 today! Can you believe it?! I have read that Elvis loved Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches. So I thought that a version of that sandwich would be a way to honor the exceptional singer, musician, and person that the world still does, and will always love.

 Biscoff and Banana Sandwich
Pretty easy ingredients!
1 Banana
Biscoff Spread
2 pieces of White Bread
Pan Spray
Spray the pan with pan spray. I mean, I know we are using butter
also, but there is no reason to put it in the pan too.
Every little bit helps!! Right?
Spread the bread with butter, and place it in the pan,
butter side down, Spread the other side of the bread
with biscoff. I used a generous amount!
Smush the banana in a bowl.
Spread that banana over the biscoff spread that is
on the piece of bread in the pan.
Take your second piece of bread and spread butter
on it. Place the bread, butter side up on the bananas
and biscoff.
Grill until golden brown on both sides.
The taste is unbelievably delicious!
I'm sure Elvis would approve.
Happy Birthday Elvis!
You are forever young!

Thanks for joining The Freshman Cook today!

Crazy Cooking Challenge~Fudge!!!

The December Crazy Cooking Challenge featured my favorite holiday treat ~ Fudge! The ultimate Christmas treat! I say that because I don't think I make fudge any other time of the year, except at Christmas. I really should though because it's so good. As soon as I saw that Tina picked Fudge for this months challenge, I knew what I wanted to make. I went looking for Biscoff Fudge! I found it at Tracy's Blog, Sugarcrafter!  Tracy has a wonderful blog full of recipes like Hush Puppies, Hashbrown Breakfast Bake, and Pecan Pie...Without the Pecans. Stop by her blog and be wowed!
     This Biscoff Fudge recipe is a simple, quick recipe with sweet results! I love all those things in my recipes at the holidays! Don't you?
Creamy and Dreamy Holiday Fudge!
1 cup unsalted Butter
1 cup Biscoff Spread
2 pinches Salt
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 cups Powdered Sugar, sifted
1st things 1st!!
Line an 8" X 8" baking dish with foil.
Spray with pan spray.
Melt your butter in a pan over low heat.
Add your biscoff spread.
Mix the butter and the spread together.
Stir in the salt and vanilla. 
Take off the heat, or turn your burner off.
Add your powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time until
completely combined. Then add the other 2 cups.
It's starting to look great!
Pour into your pan.
Cover with plastic by placing the plastic directly on the fudge.
Place in the fridge and chill until firm.
After removing the fudge from the fridge, cut the fudge into strips.
I cut the pieces small because the fudge is rather rich.

A little about this recipe: I only changed two things.
#1~ I used less salt than the original recipe called for.
#2~ The original recipe also was made in a microwave. 
I don't have one, so the stove top had to do. It worked great!

Other info: 
This recipe makes about 1 pound of fudge.
You should eat or freeze this fudge within a week.
What is Biscoff?  It is a European alternative to Peanut Butter.
It is sweet, and is great as a spread on toast, with jam or apples.
It is a product from Belgium.
I purchased my jar at World Market for $4.99.

Thank you Tracy for a great recipe!
