Tatting Tea Tuesday March 9, 2010 part 1 of 2 BEWARE!!!

I did some odds and ends today around the house, I was getting ready to tat and I wanted some type of something sweet, hmmmm but what to have?? ?? ?? I had some snack cakes here that I used for hubbys lunch usually there are extra but looks like a snack monster must have gotten into them so there was no extra for me and there wasnt even enough for the rest of the week... CRAP! So I thought What can I make, I wasnt in the mood to make cookies or a cake then I thought I got lots of different ingredients here. So I made some Tatting Tea Tuesday Sweet Insanity... WHAT IS THAT you ask, well follow along and you will see...
You will need a pot...
2- 14 oz cans of sweetened condensed milk
Pour them in the pot and let it get nice and warm
I put in some cinnamon which is optional

Once that is all nice and warm add in
2- 12 oz bags of chocolate chips (I used 1 chocolate and 1 white)

Let that get all nice and melted
Then add in 1- 8oz bag of toffee chips or 1 cup of smashed up Heath Bar

STIR together
NOW  add in 1 1/2 - 2 cups of Raisins (or dates or nuts or any kind of nut or dried fruit)
MIX well
add in 2 1/2 cups coconut
MIX
It looks and smells so good now

Using a small Ice Cream scoop or spoon

Place a scoop on some foil (easy clean up)

This recipe yields approx 70 candies


2- 14 oz cans of sweetened condensed milk
2- 12 oz bags of chocolate chips (I used 1 chocolate and 1 white)
1- 8oz bag of toffee chips or 1 cup of smashed up Heath Bar
1 1/2 - 2 cups raising (any dried fruit or nuts will do)
2 1/2 cups coconut

Follow Directions above and ENJOY!!!

Shouldn't have read this post- I think just reading it caused me to gain 10 pounds. It's a good thing I don't have the ingredients and no way to go get them. Who knows how much I gain actually eating them!!

This sounds soooo good. I'm not sure I should thank Isdihara for sending me here. I practically had to wipe the drool off the screen. Thanks for the recipe. When I have lots of people to share with I'll try this (if there aren't lots of others I'd probably eat the whole thing myself, not good.)
