Betty’s Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Wieners Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Wieners. These are great for parties, and for all of you planning a Super Bowl Party, these would be perfect! You can make them in a slow cooker, and just leave it plugged in, so that they are hot whenever you need them—at home, or if you take them for pot luck. The cocktail wieners are cooked in a wonderful sauce of red currant jelly and dipping mustard, and the taste is superb! Ingredients: 1 pound cocktail wieners (I used Hillshire Farms Lit’l Smokies, but they do not have to be smoked; also, they can be just regular hot dogs, cut into ¾-inch lengths.) 10 oz. red currant jelly (I strongly recommend red currant jelly, but, if you cant find it, you may use raspberry preserves, grape jelly, or other jelly of your liking.) 6 oz. prepared mustard (I used Herlocher’s dipping mustard, because that is my favorite mustard, but, if you cant find it, you may use any prepared mustard that you like.) toothpicks for serving assorted crackers Combine 10 oz. red currant jelly with 6 oz. prepared mustard in a slow cooker. (You may use a double boiler, or even a regular pot on the stove, but you will need to watch those carefully.) Add 1 pound of cocktail wieners, and stir to coat completely. Turn the slow cooker to HIGH, and cook the cocktail wieners for about 4 hours, stirring occasionally, to let the wieners absorb the flavor of the sauce. You may turn the slow cooker to low, to keep the wieners hot until you are

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Creamy Grasshopper Drink. The Grasshopper pie that I uploaded yesterday is based on this cocktail. I have added vanilla ice cream to crème de menthe and crème de cacao and topped it with sweetened whipped cream, chocolate curls, and green maraschino cherries to make a gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day drink! Ingredients (for 2 generous drinks): 1 shot (1 ½ ounces) crème de menthe (You may substitute 1 tablespoon mint flavoring for a non-alcoholic version.) 1 shot (1 ½ ounces) crème de cacao (or cocoa) (You may substitute 1 tablespoon clear or white chocolate flavoring for a non-alcoholic version.) 4 large scoops vanilla ice cream 3 drops green food coloring sweetened whipped cream chocolate curls (I have a Quick Tip in bettyskitchen on making chocolate curls.) green maraschino cherries In the bowl of an electric blended, place 4 large scoops of vanilla ice cream. Add one shot of crème de menthe and one shot of crème de cacao. Set blended to “liquefy” and blend until blended and creamy. Add 3 drops green food coloring, for an intensified green coloring. Pour the Creamy Grasshopper Drink into tall dessert glasses or champagne flutes. Place a dollop of sweetened whipped cream on top of each drink.
