OKAY...I'm getting antsy!!  The Holidays are on their way and we have NO RECIPES to fall back on.  It's been quite awhile....hasn't anyone figured it out yet?  It's a good thing there are other cooking sites with millions of recipes!

There are plenty of recipes.
Is there one in particular that you are trying to locate?  Maybe one of us can help.

Why do I suddenly have to log in each time I come to VBB?  I have, in many years, just clicked onto this site and automatically been logged in.  I've requested to be remembered on this computer but this is getting to be a question I'd like answered.

Not really looking for anything in particular.  Probably just something to nudge my thinking.  For the record, when I click on the side of the page where the different categories of recipes are, the screen comes up and says there are no recipes in that category.  I switch to the next, there is a message that VBB is in the process of "tuning" the recipe categories, to check back soon, they will be displayed once again.  Perhaps you have a different way of finding recipes.  If so, let me in on the secret.

I usually don't use the recipe search function I just serarch but...
I just clicked on Recipes at the top of this page and then I clicked on the type of recipe and I did get a bunch that popped up.  
I know that there are times when I make a post it seems to take forever for it to show up.  It was once explained that there are multiple servers so maybe  there was a problem with the one that was working on your request. Maybe wait and try again or do the online chat to see it they can solve the "problem"
I just might have to play with that function and see what treasures I find.

Hi all,

I have a Taste of Home recipe for Kaluha Fudge that my dad really likes. Only one problem, Baker's White Chocolate, which is required for it, is now only 4 oz in size instead of 6oz. Now I know this isn't that big of a change, but it is in the pocket book. I need a total of 24 oz for this recipe. With the cost of the 6 oz having been $2.39 it's now at $2.68 for the 4 oz bars.

SO I was wondering, does anyone have any ideas of what I can use instead OR an alternative recipe? I would post the recipe, but I'm not sure if that is allowed or not, so here is the link: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/kahlua-fudge If the link is not allowed, I will post the recipe.

I would ask there, but I actually prefer this forum to theirs. Easier to follow and find my posts.

Jennifer about this time of year a lot of the chips go on sale.  Pick up bags of the white chips they should be a good substitute for the Bakers white chocolate. 
I am sure if this is incorrect I will be corrected by either one of the other members or VBB staff...

Hi Jennifer -- I just looked at the recipe and it reminded me of my very favorite candy recipe -- one I make over and over all year.
It's Nestlé's VANILLA-MACADAMIA NUT FUDGE on this site.   I think you could use that recipe and add a small amount of Kaluha.  It sure proves that Nestles White Chocolate Chips make a great fudge.

Speaking of that fudge ......... I'm going to try a variation of that tonight.  I'm going to omit the macadamias and add a generous cup of coconut.

Thanks Nikki and Nancy.

I found a recipe once for coconut fudge.

I thought about trying it with the chips and doing a more traditional mashmallow creme style fudge. My dad said he wouldn't mind me experimenting, since I tend to do that with my cookie recipes. I went looking. I found a recipe on how to make baker's chocolate using just a few ingredients, but I think I will try the other way first.

If anyone successfully makes this with the Kaluha using a different recipe or has a good replacement, please let me know. I know there are a lot of bakers and candy makers on here!!

Jennifer --- do come back often and tell us what recipes you have tried with what success.  
And I was tickled to hear that you are a cookie baker.  Me too!

Hi, Mary L. I'm sorry the item you are looking for has been discontinued. Unfortunately, sales volume may not have been great enough to justify space on the grocer's shelves. I would like to report to our Marketing group that you would like to see them brought back.- Kelly

I made these mini gingerbread house looking things out of white chocolate. I was wanting to paint them to add color but don't really want to go out and buy a lot of paint. Is there anything I can use to add color? I thought I could just use my wilton food coloring since its thicker but it just comes right off.

Hi Rachelle,

Powdered colors available at specialty stores and through online catalog sources, which are
the preferred method. These colors are very concentrated and can be used both for icing,
candy making, and dipping since they contain no water and so do not thicken your coating
or cause seizing.

Dusting chalks or Dusts available at cake decorating stores also work well. However
these are not concentrated and the texture is much finer than that of the powdered colors.

The most familiar form of food coloring is liquid. You can tint the chocolate with food
coloring after it has melted and cooled slightly. Both the chocolate and the liquid
coloring must be at the same temperature.

The Premier White Bars and Morsels both can be tinted with oil based food coloring with
good results as well.


Sincerely,

Roberto

For gingerbread houses I think Royal Icing is the best bet.  You can then use it as "glue" to stick on candies rather than color the icing.  But if you wanted to color the royal icing just use your coloring as part of the liquid for the icing.
