Caramel Dip

1 14 oz. Bag Kraft Caramels (50 pieces, unwrapped)

8 oz. Sour Cream

1/4 Cup Milk


Melt caramels with milk over low heat.  Stir in sour cream.  Serve warm with apple slices.


Cajun Cheese Ball


Mix 2 blocks of cream cheese with 1 can broken shrimp (drained) and 1 can crab meat (drained).  Add a small minced onion.  Mix Old Bay Seasoning or Tony Chachere's Seasoning to taste.  Shape into a ball or put in a bowl.  Chill.  Serve with crackers.  Club Crackers seem to go well with this one.


Cajun Pecans


1 pound pecan halves

1/4 cup melted butter

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried thyme

3/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayanne pepper


Combine all ingredients in crockpot.  Stir until coated.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes.  Turn crockpot to LOW and cook uncovered for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.  Cool completely before sealing.


Cheese Wafers


2 cups flour

teaspoon salt

teaspoon garlic salt

teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 stick butter

1 pound sharp cheddar cheese (grated)

1 cup pecans (chopped)


Mix and sift dry ingredients.  Cut in butter.  Add cheese.  Add pecans.  Mix well.  THINLY roll out and cut into desired shapes (the thinner the better).  Bake at 375 for 12+ minutes.  (It will look like it won’t roll, but a handful at a time did great.)


Trawler’s Crab Dip


1 can Crabmeat

cup Bottled French Dressing

1 cup Mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Prepared Horseradish


Mix ingredients together.  Adjust ingredients to taste.  Chill and serve with crackers.


Crab with Cream Cheese


Buy cocktail sauce or make it with ketchup and prepared horseradish as hot as you like and mix with1 can crab meat (drain and make sure all the shell has been removed).  It is better chilled, but not necessary.  Spoon over 2 blocks of cream cheese.  Serve with crackers.  I like the Club Crackers with this.
