Chocolate Syrup Recipe - Better than Hersheys!Chocolate Syrup Recipe – Better than Hersheys! Delicious & Easy with REAL ingredients—nothing artificial!! If you are tired of paying $3 or more for a bottle of chocolate syrup to make chocolate milk or drizzle over ice cream, then you MUST try this rich and flavorful recipe.

My boys love to drink chocolate milk and can go through a bottle of Hershey’s within  a matter of hours. Therefore, I’ve been trying to come up with a recipe they won’t turn up their snobby little chocoholic noses to, and also won’t cost me an arm & a leg to produce! I was actually hoping to figure out something that tasted similar to Hershey’s, but my version, in fact, TASTES BETTER THAN HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE SYRUP!! Just ask my boys!!!

Even better, I probably have no more than 75¢ worth of ingredients in my 10 ounce container of chocolate syrup. Compare my 7.5¢ per ounce REAL product to the lowest price per ounce you can buy on the FLAVORED product, which would be 9.5¢ per ounce at Walmart, and I STILL come out cheaper by 66%!!!   See how you can quickly make this wonderful treat with ingredients you probably already have on hand…

Apple Dumplings made with 7-Up Soft Drink – Delicious, Easy & Great Comfort Food!
 
If you are looking for a dessert that embodies what home should smell and taste like, then try this flavorful recipe. Like most recipes I share with you, it is “forgiving”, meaning you can somewhat improvise on the ingredients and it will STILL turn out great! I usually use orange juice in this recipe, however, I did not have any orange juice on hand, but I DID have some citrus flavored 7-Up soft drink that I got for FREE and a couple of tangerines! Since I REALLY wanted apple dumplings, I made them work in place of the OJ and it turned out excellent!!  See how you can easily make this wonderful treat with ingredients you have on hand…

Caramel Flan – Restaurant Quality Recipe – Delicious, Easy & Impressive Dessert!
 
If you are looking for a dessert that will have tongues wagging and mouth’s watering, then try this creamy and delicious caramel flan recipe. It’s as good, if not better, than any flan you will pay $6.00  – $8.00 per slice for in a restaurant! It really DOES taste like it came from an upscale restaurant.

My husband has 3 favorite desserts — Pumpkin Pie, German Chocolate Cake and Caramel Flan.  So, when he decided that our company’s Christmas party would be a sit down dinner party for 36 IN OUR HOME–meaning “I” was going to have to make all of the food and I did not have a lot of time to do that AND clean my house, AND put up lots more decorations beyond the one piddly Christmas tree we haphazardly threw up; I decided to make this creamy caramel flan. Oh, did I mention that I only had FOUR DAYS in which to pull off this dinner party???  I could have BEATEN HIM ABOUT THE HEAD AND SHOULDERS for giving me such short notice!!! Spousal abuse was looking pretty attractive at that moment!!! With so much to do, I needed a dessert that Karl liked (yes, this party WAS all about him), was impressive, fast & easy to make, and would feed several people.  This caramel flan recipe couldn’t have filled the bill better. I made 3, and each of them turned out perfectly wonderful. No glitches at all! See how you can easily make this Flan…
