Ambrosia Dessert Recipe


  • 1 can mandarin oranges (11 ounces)
  • 1 cup cubed pineapple (canned pineapple may be used)
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

Butter Caramels Recipe


  • 1/2 cup nuts, finely chopped
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups half and half

Butter an 8-inch square pan. Spread the nuts in the bottom of the pan and set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, mix the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and 1 cup of the half and half.

Bring ingredients to a boil and stir constantly. Once boiling, add the rest of the half and half and stir.

Add a candy thermometer and cook over medium heat. Bring the mixture to the "firm ball" stage (244 - 248 degrees). Don't exceed this temperature.

Immediately spread the mixture over the nuts in the pan. Allow to cool.

Cut into 1 inch squares.

German Chocolate Pie

German Chocolate Pie is something I make for Easter and for other holidays too.
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 7 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 9" pie crusts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl. Add the evaporated milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer and stir in the pecans and coconut.

Divide the batter equally between the two pie crusts and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

The center of the pie will set when it has cooled in the refrigerator.

Eat one pie and give the other to your neighbor!

Summer Fruit Sticks

Summer Fruit Sticks is a Cold Picnic Food Recipe shared by Michele of Hot Spring, AR in one of our Creative Party Ideas contests.

This is a really simple recipe that is great for summertime parties or BBQ's...

  • 1 can pineapple chunks
  • 1 jar Maraschino cherries
  • 1 cantaloupe, cut into chunks
  • 1 honeydew, cut into chunks
  • 1 qt strawberries
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • Wooden skewers (approx 12"-15" long)
This submission was part of our contest series for Cash Prizes. Enter our next contest! Join us on facebook for the next opportunity.

Fill a large bowl with crushed ice, and stick the skewers into the ice so they all stand up...sorta fanned out like a flower arrangement.

These are so easy and so refreshing, plus they make a great centerpiece....and you can carry them around while you eat them....perfect for those hot summertime events!

These even work well for children's parties...but be careful with the skewers if the kids are young.
