Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

¼ C butter

¼ C milk

 ¼ C peanut butter

1 C marshmallow cream

1 t vanilla

Melt the first set of chips until smooth and spread in a foiled 9x13 pan.  Cool.  Boil the sugar, butter and milk for 5 minutes.  Add the peanut butter, fluff, and vanilla.  Stir until smooth and pout over chocolate base.  Sprinkle with peanuts.  Melt the caramels with the water and pour on top of peanuts.  Again, melt the next batch of chips, stir in the p.b., and spread on top of everything.  Chill until set, cut, serve.  Wrap tightly and freeze if you want to save some for later.
