Whip cream until it peaks. In another bowl, combine sweetened milk and other ingredients. Add to whip cream. Put in freezer container and freeze overnight.

Bake at 325 for 25 minutes or until cake is done in center. Allow cake to cool in pan for 10 min. and then turn out onto cooling rack. Assemble and frost with icing* once it is cool.

combine 1 c peanut butter, 1/2 c butter and cream until light and fluffy. Add the confectioner's sugar. Mix in enough cream to make the frosting spreading consistency. Apply to the cooled cake.

Rocky Road Fudge

As long as I can remember, my parents have made this fudge around Christmas time. It is wonderful!

1-12 oz pkg of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1-14 oz. can Eagle Brand milk
dash salt
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract
2 T. margarine
2 c. dry roasted peanuts
1-10 1/2 pkg mini marshmellows

Melt morsels with Eagle Brand milk, 2 T margarine and the vanilla. In a large bowl, combine peanuts, marshmellows and salt. Pour melted chocolate mixture into nut mixture. Mix well. Spread into wax paper lined 9 x 13 pan. Chill 2 hours. Turn fudge over onto cutting board, peel off wax paper and cut into squares. Store at room temp but it tasted better if cold.
