“Then sing, young hearts that are full of cheer, with never a thought of sorrow; the old goes out, but the glad young year comes merrily in tomorrow.”
“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.”
New Year’s Eve, there is always something fun happening in our home. Our tradition for the last fifteen or so years has included brownie ala’ mode with all the toppings!
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 (16 ounce) can chocolate syrup
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with 1 inch sides.
Mix together 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter or margarine, eggs, chocolate syrup, and flour. Spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan.
Combine 6 tablespoons butter, milk, and 1 1/4 cups sugar in a saucepan. Stir and boil for 3 minutes. Add 1 Cup chocolate chips, and stir over low heat until melted.
Frost cooled brownies immediately so frosting does not cool and harden. Cut into bars.
From the Lambert home…we wish you a very Merry Christmas….
“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.”
When Courtney found out I was posting some of our favorite recipes, she reminded me of this simple recipe! It is delicious and can be adapted for those who like sausage balls spicy or not so much.
We make these for the freezer in big batches in the fall. Our first sausage balls are cooked just for Christmas morning. It’s been a tradition in our home now for more than TEN years!
Turkey Sausage Balls
- 4lbs extra-sharp cheddar cheese (we always use CABOT…we don’t think there is any substitute!)
- 4lbs turkey sausage
- 8c bisquick mix
- 4t paprika
- 1 1/2t Texas Pete (again…no substitute!)
Mix ingredients in large bowl. Roll into walnut sized balls. Bake at 375^ for 10 minutes. Turn to opposite side and cook an additional 10 minutes. Yields 13 1/2 dozen balls.
