Your guests are in for a sweet surprise when they try this unusual cheese ball…it tastes just like cookie dough! Rolled in chopped pecans, the chip-studded spread is wonderful on regular or chocolate graham crackers. I especially like it because it can be assembled in a wink. —Kelly Glascock, Syracuse, Missouri
"Can't stop eating it!" say guests about my caramel corn. For our basketball party. I fix enough to fill a big red tin decorated with the University of Arizona logo. The delectable syrup coats the popcorn well but isn't sticky. —Sharon Landeen, Tucson, Arizona
My friends threaten not to come by unless this dip is on the menu! The rich spread bakes right in the bread bowl and goes well with almost any dipper. Plus, cleanup is a breeze.

This recipe has to be the ultimate in a fast-fixing mini burger with simply fabulous flavor! Creamy mayo, cheese and sweet Hawaiian rolls help tame the heat of the chipotle peppers.

I got this salsa recipe from my sister, and my children and I have been making batches of it ever since. We pair pint jars with packages of tortilla chips for zesty Christmas gifts. When the kids give this present to their teachers, they can truly say they helped make it. —Pamela Lundstrum, Bird Island, Minnesota
