BACON WRAPPED ROASTED WHOLE CHICKEN

1 WHOLE CHICKEN
1/2 PACKAGE OF PEPPERED BACON
TOOTH PICKS TO HOLD BACON ON CHICKEN (20 FOR JUST IN CASE)
3 TABLESPOONS OF EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
1 TEASPOON SALT
1/2 TEASPOON OF PEPPER
1/2 TEASPOON OF SEASONED SALT
1/4 TEASPOON OF GARLIC POWDER
1/2 CUP OF WATER



PRE HEAT OVEN TO 350. PUT THE OIL ON THE CHICKEN THEN MIX ALL THE SEASONINGS TOGETHER AND RUB ONTO CHICKEN. ONCE YOU ARE DONE DOING THAT LAY THE BACON OVER IT. TOOTH PICK IT DOWN. PUT IN A ROASTER PAN (OR A 9X13 PAN). COVER THE CHICKEN IN TINFOIL AND BAKE. ONCE CHICKEN IS CLOSE TO BEING DONE, REMOVE FOIL TO BROWN THE CHICKEN (TO MAKE THE BACON CRISPY). I DO NOT BAST MY CHICKEN WHEN I COOK CHICKEN. YOU COOK THE CHICKEN 20 MINUTES EACH POUND THE CHICKEN IS.

COCONUT CANDIES

1 PACKAGE OF CREAM CHEESE SOFTENED
2 1/2 PACKAGES OF COCONUT
1 PACKAGE OF POWDERED SUGAR
4 TEASPOONS LEMON EXTRACT (OR ANY OTHER FLAVORING OF YOUR CHOICE)
1 PACKAGE OF SEMI SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS
1 PACKAGE OF ALMOND BARK MELTING CHOCOLATE

MIX ALL TOGETHER THE COCONUT, CREAM CHEESE AND POWDERED SUGAR TOGETHER. ADD FLAVORING (AND FOOD COLORING IF YOU CHOOSE TO COLOR IT) FORM INTO WHAT EVER SHAPE YOU PREFER. IN THE MEAN TIME MELT THE CHOCOLATES TOGETHER (I USE MY SMALL CROCK POT ON WARM TO MELT MY CHOCOLATE. I DID THESE IN A FEW DIFFERENT WAYS. I PUT SOME CHOCOLATE IN A MINI CUPCAKE LINER, PUSHED IT UP ON THE SIDE AND ONCE IT WAS HARD I PUT SOME OF THE COCONUT TREAT IN THE MIDDLE AND THEN PUT MORE CHOCOLATE OVER THE TOP.
I ALSO TOOK AND FORMED COCONUT INTO SHAPES AND DIPPED HALF IN TO CHOCOLATE.
AND I ALSO TOOK SOME THAT ARE FORMED INTO SHAPES AND LEFT IT WITHOUT CHOCOLATE AND JUST PUT JELLY BEANS IN IT.
Sorry I havent been on posting recipes for a while, I will get back to that now that we are settled in Washington state. Got alot of new ones to put on here as well.
