14: These were the favorite hot sandwiches of my childhood. My parents used to serve them at parties. By the time I was in junior high, I was allowed to stay up late and prepare the sandwiches while the adults partied in the next room. More recently I served a variation at a bridal/baby shower and they were hugely popular.

17: Beer Steak & Brats Whats meat without beer!? Not good according to Ian. To add a some extra flavor to your brats or steak, marinade them overnight in the beer of your likings.

26: Love the best sister ever, Tenley | There are lots of fun tasty desserts you can make and they all come in a bite-sized ball. Some refer to them as truffles, others put them on sticks and call them pops, I just keep it real and call it what it is... balls. These are some of my favorite desserts to take to work, a gathering or party, or just to have around the house for a sweet tasty treat. | Desserts in the shape of balls are always the best!
27: Cake Balls 1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake) 1 can frosting (16 oz.) 1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate) wax paper 1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl. 2. Mix thoroughly with 1/2 to 1 can cream cheese frosting. (I put in just over half the can so they are easy to roll and not overly sweet but if you want extra sweet, use the whole can.) 3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, but I like to hand roll them.) 4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.) 5. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package. 6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. Use a spoon, toothpick, fork, or sticks (if making pops. This will be the messiest and most difficult part. Find a method that works for you and stick to it! See the next page to get helpful tips on cake ball perfection. | Flavors of Balls The fun thing about cake balls is you can use all sorts of flavor combinations. Here's some suggestions but get creative and alter to your taste! Devils Food Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Strawberry Cake with Vanilla Frosting German Chocolate Cake with Accompanying Frosting French Vanilla Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Lemon Cake with Lemon Frosting Yellow Cake with Buttercream Frosting Funfetti Cake with Vanilla Frosting You can also alter the chocolate you dip the cake into. I like to use regular chocolate and white chocolate bark. But get creative and try dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or anything else you can come up with!
28: Tips for making tasty balls 1. Chill the cake-and-frosting mixture well (at least 2 hours) before you shape the balls. Also freeze the balls a couple hours before dipping. Before dipping, make sure the cake balls aren't frozen solid because after being dipped, the coating has a tendency to crack when drying. Pre-dipped cake balls can be kept frozen for weeks. 2. Work in small batches when dipping, keeping the rest in the freezer. 3. Use toothpicks, a fork or a skewer to manipulate the balls when dipping. Perfectionists may want to buy a candy-dipping fork because it ensures even coating of each cake ball to make it look like a truffle. 4 Lay the dipped balls on wax paper to harden, placing the spot where you pierced the ball down to cover the hole, or cover the hole with decoration. (I typically "paint" strips of a contrasting colored frosting on top or throw on sprinkles)
29: Oreo Balls 1 package Oreos, crushed 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened 1 package chocolate and white chocolate bark Using a blender, processor, mixer finely crush the oreos so there are no large pieces. Use a mixer to mix the Oreos and cream cheese together Roll into small bite sized pieces Chill for an hour or so Melt the chocolate bark according to package directions Dip the balls into the melted chocolate Allow to harden on wax paper Just like the cake balls, drizzle with contrasting color or top with sprinkles

And yes, you can get drunk on them! | Who needs shots when you can have rum balls!?
31: Blend together softened margarine, peanut butter, and confectioners sugar. Chill for about an hour. Roll the peanut butter mixture into bite sized balls. Melt the chocolate with a small amount of paraffine was using a double boiler. Dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate using toothpicks. Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper until cooled. | Tenley's Tip: If you're like me and cant seem to successfully melt chocolate using a double boiler. Use microwaveable chocolate bark that is used for the cake balls. It's much easier and stupid proof!! | PB Mixture: 1 Cup margarine, softened 1 Cup Peanut Butter 3 Cup confectioners sugar 12 oz chocolate chips small amount of paraffine. | Buckeyes | Love, Aunt Mickey (Go Buckeyes!) | You may not like the Ohio State Buckeyes but these sure are tasty!
