When was the last time you had a "Red Hot Date"?  Here is a new creation I want to share with you that will make you want to have a "Red Hot Date" every day of the week.  You'll begin by using the following ingredients:

1/2 c. vanilla ice cream
1 brownie
2 T. hot fudge
2 T. chopped dates
3 snack size Nestle crunch bars
5 atomic red hot balls
2 T. whipped cream
Begin making your sundae by breaking 2 of your Nestle Crunch Bars into small pieces. Next, crush 4 of the atomic red hot balls into small pieces by using a hammer or meat tenderizer.  I put them in a heavy duty ziplock bag to keep them together.  Mix the dates, crunch bars & red hots (reserve about a teaspoon of red hots for topping) into the vanilla ice cream. Assemble your sundae beginning with a brownie (I like to break it up, but not necessary), hot fudge, ice cream, more hot fudge, whipped topping,  and sprinkles of broken red hots.  Top it off with a single solid red hot and a mini crunch bar.  There you have your red hots, and your dates and it's all delicious and fun.

Strawberry Heaven

“The “Debbie” recipe – the recipe that is authentically me.
My absolute favorite dessert recipe.”
All I ever talk about loving is strawberries. I am to strawberries as Paula Deen is to potatoes and butter.
When thinking about my absolute favorite dessert, it had to combine cheesecake, strawberries, and chocolate. Chocolate covered strawberries to be exact!!! So I developed a pie that features all my weaknesses. I love a regular pie crust instead of graham cracker so I have used pie crust, topped with a luscious layer of Kraft Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat Cheesecake Filling, followed by 1 pound of ripe, juicy strawberries enveloped in strawberry glaze topped with creamy, dreamy Cool Whip, and followed by 6 GIANT chocolate covered strawberries. This pie would be a strawberry lovers’ most decadent dream. It is mine…now you know what I dream about.

Strawberry Heaven
Prep time: 50 minutes Cook time: 9 minutes
Serves 6 - 8
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 ½ c. Kraft Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat Cheesecake Filling
2 lbs. of strawberries
14 oz. strawberry pie glaze
8 oz Cool Whip
¾ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Place pie crust in pie pan and flute edges. Bake at 450 degrees for 9 minutes.
3. Cool pie crust at room temperature for 10 minutes and follow in freezer for 10 minutes to cool quickly.
4. While pie crust is cooking and cooling, prepare other ingredients beginning with strawberries. Wash strawberries, core, and slice in half. Save 6 LARGE strawberries for top of pie. Eat a few and enjoy them while you are working so hard. Save enough for the pie.
5. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for approximately 1 minute stirring every 20 seconds. Dip 6 large strawberries in chocolate about ¾ of the way up the strawberry. Place a piece of parchment paper on a plate and cool the strawberries on the paper in the freezer.
6. After the pie crust comes out of the freezer, spread the cheesecake filling directly on top of crust.
7. Place strawberries directly on top of cheesecake and pour strawberry glaze over strawberries.
8. Pipe Cool Whip over strawberries and glaze and top with chocolate covered strawberries. Place in freezer for approximately 15 minutes and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers.
