Crock Pot Candy Cane Bark ♥

This is a perfect Christmas hostess gift for those Holiday parties! Easy Peasy!




Ingredients

Two 12oz bags of white chocolate chips (I used Nestle brand)
1/2 – 1 cup crushed peppermint candy. I purchased a 10oz bag of crushed peppermint candies
Wax paper

 Directions
 1. Place both bags of chocolate chips in your crock pot. I used my small 1.5 quart slow cooker but you could double the recipe and use a bigger one!
2. Set on low for 1 hour. It helps to stir after about 30 minutes to make sure bottom and edges aren’t burning.
3. Stir after and hour. Chocolate should be melted (not necessarily runny)
4. Add in about a half cup of crushed peppermint candy. More or less depending on your taste and how chunky you like it!
5. Spread out onto baking sheet lined with wax paper.
6. Sprinkle more crushed candy on top.
7. Put in fridge for 1 hr. When cooled, break apart and serve!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Creama ♥



So Sit is the end of September and it is near 90 degrees, and I live in Wisconsin...What? So I was inspired for dinner tonight...  Using my favorite sponsored product Hass Avocados!   ♥

Avocados are a perfect super food! You may find that the rich, creamy texture of avocados makes your resolution to eat healthier easier to follow. They make a satisfying snack - 8% of your daily recommended value (DV) fiber from 1 serving of avocado. Fiber adds bulk to your diet and can help keep you feeling full faster and longer.

Working out? Potassium can help. Potassium is an electrolyte. Your body loses electrolytes as you sweat that need to be replaced. You also need potassium to help build muscle, break down and use carbohydrates. Avocados contain 150 mg of potassium per 1 oz. serving. In addition, avocados contain 8% of your daily value of fiber with 3.5 g of naturally good fats to help you stay full and energized for all your activities throughout the day.

St Patty's Day Slow Cooker Reuben Sliders ♥



This would be perfect for St Patrick's Day!  ♥



Perfect slow cooker meal ready when you get home!  Try my slow cooker Reuben Sliders!  Using my favorite beef brisket brand from sponsored company Texas Based Goode CO. 







Satisfying as the thirty-five years Goode Co spent curating the tastiest blend of Texas culture and cuisine around. As a family-owned and operated business, they take the craft of serving the finest Texas fare very seriously.In fact, their barbeque pits haven’t stopped smoking since they first opened their doors in 1977 – because they figure when you’re in it for the long haul, no shortcut’s worth taking.

 
 Ingredients

 1 (2- to 3-pound) corned beef brisket with spices, trim fat Classic Mesquite Smoked Brisket

12 ounces dark ale beer or non-alcoholic beer*

1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, chopped

1 (14-ounce) can sauerkraut, drained

16 whole wheat  or marble rye party buns, sliced horizontally

 Thousand Island dressing, or mustard if desired

8 (3/4-ounce) slices  Swiss Cheese, each cut in half


Directions


Trim fat from brisket. Place into 4-quart slow cooker; add beer and onion. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6-8 hours or High heat setting 4-6 hours, or until meat is very tender.

 Remove meat from slow cooker. Place onto cutting board. Cut across grain into thin slices.

 Drain liquid from slow cooker; discard. Add cooked meat and sauerkraut to slow cooker. Cook on High heat setting 15-18 minutes or until sauerkraut is heated through.

 Spread cut-sides of buns with salad dressing, or mustard if desired. Evenly divide meat mixture among bottom half of buns; top each with 1 piece cheese and top half of bun. Serve immediately.

 Tip

 Corned beef brisket usually comes with pickling spices. If you choose a brisket that does not contain spices, add 1 tablespoon pickling spices. You can purchase pickling spices in the spice aisle of the supermarket.


Happy St. Patricks Day!
