Here are 3 great and unique recipes to have for the party

Toffee Popcorn Crunch

Makes about 1-1/2 pounds popcorn
1 - cup whole almonds
10 - cups popped popcorn
1-3/4 - cups (10-ounces package) English Toffee Bits
2/3 - cup light corn syrup

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Grease large roasting pan (or two 13x9x2-inch baking pans).
Place popcorn and almonds in prepared pan. In heavy medium saucepan, add toffee bits and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until toffee is melted (about 12 minutes). Pour over popcorn mixture and stir until evenly coated. Bake 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from oven and stir every 2 minutes until slightly cooled. Allow to cool completely. Store in tightly covered container in cool, dry place.

Grilled Chicken Salad Boats

4 packages of Perdue chicken tenders - Marinate in fat free zesty Italian dressing (1 large bottle)
2 bags of hot and crusty Pepperidge Farms hard rolls. - Cut the center out of each hard roll but don't go through the bottom. Make a boat out the rolls.
3 cups of celery chopped finely
1 medium onion chopped finely
4 tablespoons of Duke's mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix celery, onion and mayo together. Grill the chicken and then add to mixture - cut up chicken into fine pieces before adding to mixture and pepper to taste. Fill each roll and top with provolone cheese.Place rolls in a lightly buttered pan and place back on the grill. Melt cheese and brown the rolls. Serve hot. Serve with the grilled tomatoes and a glass of wine. Makes 18 rolls

Mexican Style Refried Bean Dip

1 cup Sour Cream
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 package Taco Seasoning
1 can Refried Beans
Tomatoes & Scallions, chopped
Shredded Cheese (such as Cheddar)
Mix together Taco Mix, Sour Cream and Mayonnaise. Layer (in order from bottom to top)
Refried Beans, Taco Mix , Shredded Cheese , Chopped Tomatoes & Scallions

For larger gatherings, double the recipe. Hint: when spreading the refried beans in the bottom of your serving dish, you may find this hard since it's just out of the can. Try spooning the beans into a bowl first, then microwave for a short time. This will soften the refried beans, making it easier to spread in your dish.
