ANTIGO - Exciting news for an Antigo baking enthusiast we featured on Newswatch 12 Today in February.

Emily Bokern entered her recipe for The Ultimate Ice Cream Sandwich (pictured here) in the Martha White Muffin Mix Challenge and was selected as one of five finalists from around the country.

Earlier this week she found out she received the top spot.

"I've been entering contests for about eight years and I just do a few a year and I've never won. So, I just could not believe that I was a finalist and then to win was just outrageously fun", said Bokern.

She wins $5,000 and a Martha White gift basket worth $50.


Emily's recipe is below:

Crisco® No-Stick Cooking Spray
1 (7.4 oz) package Martha White® Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
1/2 cup Smucker's® Hot Fudge Topping
2 tablespoons chopped, salted peanuts

1. SPRAY Belgian waffle maker with no-stick cooking spray. Heat to medium temperature.

2. STIR together muffin mix, milk and egg in medium bowl until well blended. Spoon half the batter into the waffle maker. Cook 3 to 4 minutes according to manufacturer's directions. Repeat with remaining batter. Cool completely.

3. PLACE one waffle on a serving plate. Spread evenly with ice cream. Place remaining waffle on top of the ice cream to make a large ice cream sandwich. If ice cream gets too soft, return to freezer until ice cream hardens.

4. HEAT fudge sauce in microwave-safe bowl on high for 30 seconds in the microwave. Drizzle the hot fudge on top of the ice cream sandwich. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of the hot fudge. Cut into four servings and enjoy immediately or freeze for later enjoyment.

Makes 4 servings

WISCONSIN - The DNR will make changes to how people register deer. This year they're starting a program allowing hunters to register deer online or by phone.

Only some hunters will take part in the program. Next year it will be in full effect.

"Right now we're doing a pilot program in 2014, where there's 14,000 people who've been picked to practice this registration. And next year everybody will be able to either register by phone or on the internet. They will still have the opportunity to register at a station as long as there is a telephone or a computer for them," says DNR Conservation Warden Paul Hartrick.
