Buffalo Chicken Dip



Just a little yummy recipe share, with the holidays looming, the open houses and holiday parties abound and I always hate arriving empty handed, knowing perfectly well that I have not eaten most of the day and intend to devour all the yummy appetizers and dips at the party! So, I like to bring something along. For tonight's party, I went with an old favorite, Buffalo Chicken Dip, it's quick and easy and always a crowd pleaser, except for my teenage boys who will devour 100 buffalo wings and not touch this dip... Crazy!

Of course it is best with fresh shredded chicken, but who has time for that! I have modified this recipe a few times and here is the recipe I used tonight

2 (10 ounce) cans chunk white chicken
2 (8ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened ( I used one 8 ounce package and 8 ounces of Sante Fe cooking cream to give it a little extra kick)
3/4 Cup Franks Red Hot (I used the buffalo flavor)
1 Cup of Ranch (I used 1/2 Cup of Salsa Ranch and 1/2 Cup of Blue Cheese, because who wants Buffalo wings without blue cheese)
1 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar cheese (I didn't actually measure, but I added just enough to get the consistency I was looking for.)

Heat the chicken and red hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch (and blue cheese). Cook until well blended and warm, add the cheddar cheese.

Enjoy!



Another Chocolate Bar Wrapper


Here is yet another chocolate bar wrapper, I am just pumping away at these, I have 26 to make and I wanted them all to be different. I was inspired for this little guy here and here. I didn't have all the right punches for either, so I used a combination of both to make him.



Have you been on pinterest lately? It is bursting with Holiday Inspiration and if you still have a few Holiday crafts to take care of, you can really get some last minute inspiration and motivation over here!

Tell me what your favorite candy wrapper is, do you have any ideas for me, I really am running out!

More Chocolate Bar Wrappers



A couple more candy wrappers knocked out, this time, I was inspired by this and this and came up with these...


The owl uses a hand drawn chimney, the SU owl punch, the hat and belt were cut by hand, the gift is simply a sticker I had laying around in my stash

The Bear is also SU BigZ Bear and Beary Merry

I think these chocolate bars are so darn cute, I don't know if anyone will actually open them!

You can see the other wrappers I did, here, here and here

Please tell me what you think, which ones do you like the best?

A few more Chocolates for co-workers



A couple more candy wrappers, The gingerbread man is a sizzix die and I used the hat from the snow man die on the gingerbread man because he looked so plain. The nutcracker is  punch art, inspiration came from here, I found another nutcracker that I liked a little better, I think I will give him a try next but I am trying to make as many different as possible.
