Updated on October 29, 2008

Chocolate Amaretto Peaches

Ingredients

4 ounces (115 g) amaretto cookies, crushed

2 ounces (50 g) plain chocolate, chopped

grated rind of 1/2 orange

1 tbsp (15 ml) clear honey

1/4 tsp (1.5 ml) ground cinnamon

1 egg white, lightly whisked

4 firm ripe peaches

5 tbsp (75 ml) white wine

1 tbsp (15 ml) caster (granulated) sugar

Instructions

Mix together the amaretti biscuits, chocolate, orange rind, honey and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in the egg white to bind the mixture.

Halve and stone the peaches and fill the cavities with the chocolate mixture, mounding it up slightly.

Arrange the stuffed peaches in a lightly buttered, shallow microwaveproof dish which will just hold them. Pour the wine into a cup and stir in the sugar.

Pour the sweetened wine around the peaches. Cover loosely and microwave on High for 2-3 minutes, until the peaches are tender. Serve at once with a little of the cooking juices spooned over and the whipped cream.

Yield: 4 servings

Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Candy Bars Recipe

Ingredients

2/3 cup butter

1 egg

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

2/3 cup firmly-packed brown sugar

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup powdered cocoa

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

14 ounces (1 pkg) wrapped caramels, unwrapped

6 Tbsp heavy cream

10 ounces semisweet candy bars, broken into small pieces

6 Tbsp heavy cream

1 cup mini-marshmallows

Instructions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line a 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) baking pan with non-stick foil.

Combine butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and powdered sugar in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended.

Combine cocoa, graham cracker crumbs, flour and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Mix at low speed until just blended. Spread dough evenly into prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 13 to 15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and set. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool completely.

Place 6 Tbsp cream and unwrapped caramels in microwave-safe mixing bowl. Cook on high for 1 minute. Stir. Continue warming in microwave in 30-second increments until melted and smooth. Cool to just barely warm, but still spreadable. (This may also be done in a double boiler on the stove-top.)

Spread caramel mixture in a thin layer over the cookie bottom and refrigerate for 15 minutes until caramel firms up a bit.

Follow the same procedure used for the caramels using 6 Tbsp cream and the chocolate chunks, mixing until smooth and creamy. Cool to lukewarm, but spreadable. (May also be done in a double-boiler.) Add marshmallows and stir gently until the marshmallows are coated.

Gently spread the chocolate marshmallow mixture over the cold caramel layer. Refrigerate for at least two hours until firm, then cut into bars with a long serrated knife. Dipping knife frequently into hot water will ease the cutting. Refrigerate bars until serving time.

Yield: 36 bars

      I'm still having a problem with brownies. Either I over bake them or they are still raw! I suppose I will have to watch h it closer. The sugar problem I have are sure to be the chocolate. I will try and get the unsweetened chocolate, not easy in South Africa, and try it again.
