YUM-O! *Recipe Exchange - Part 1*

I recently participated in a recipe exchange (Thanks, Amy) and I thought I would share the recipes I received with everyone. I haven't had a chance to try any of them out yet, but some look very interesting.

Chicken Casserole
4-5 chicken breast
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
1 small container of sour cream
25 Saltine crackers
Melted butter
Red pepper
Black Pepper
Boil chicken breat. Tear up chicken breast and place in bottom of 9x13 baking dish. Mix soups and sour cream together and pour over chicken. The amount of butter and saltines vary depending on how much crust you want. Crush crackers and melt enough butter to cover crackers. Mix and sprinkle over top of soup mixture. Add pepper to taste.
Bake at 350 or until crackers start to turn brown (about 1 hour).

Goof Balls
1 box rice crispies cereal
1 bag caramels
1 bag jumbo marshmallows
1/2 cup milk (or desired amount to mix with caramels while melting)
In medium sauce pan melt all caramels with milk until nice and thin. Remove from heat. You can reheat caramel sauce as often as needed, usually just once. Taking 2 tablespoons, roll marshmallow until coated with caramel sauce (careful not to leave it too long, it will melt). Then pick up with spoons and drop in bowl of rice crispies until completely coated with cereal. Place on wax paper to dry. Repeat until you have desired number of treats.
You can also drizzle melted chocolate over treats at the end for an added twist.
