You won't believe how easy this cake is to make. When you present it to your guests, I promise you will receive "oohs and aahs". It is beautiful to look at and absolutely scrumptious to eat. My father is not quick to dole out compliments on food, he said this was the best cake he has ever had. When strawberries are in peak season I often substitute them for the raspberries.
This is the moistest cake you will ever eat. I love it with strawberry jello and garnished with fresh strawberries. The Cool Whip makes such a pretty pure white and creamy frosting. It was my mom's favorite birthday cake. Prep time is also chill time
From Junior's Cheesecake Cookbook, chocolate cheesecake nirvana! A labor of love to be sure, this is my favorite way to spoil both myself and the ones I love. Note: The cookbook states that the cream cheese MUST be full-fat.
OMG.. These are like heaven in your mouth! Talk about great taste sensations... I made these for one of my cooking and recipe events that I hold monthly, and these were a HUGE hit... A must try for sure! You can use low fat cream cheese to make these lighter if you like. You can also dip the ends with any kind of finely chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, sprinkles, or dip the ends in chocolate or drizzle with chocolate. You might even try adding some cocoa powder to the cream cheese and make it a chocolate filling. The sky is the limit here, just use your imagination!
I am not a big fan of eating Oreo Cookies, but this cake is TO DIE FOR. I served this for dessert at night to a bunch of overnight guests who requested it again for breakfast! I strongly recommend preparing this at least 24 hours before you want to serve it. It firms up and tastes much better that way! Prep time below does not include chilling time.
I've never tried to cook divinity, but I've heard stories about others trying and failing, so when I saw this recipe I had to post it for safe-keeping. Cooking time is the drying time overnight. Haven't tried it yet---I bought a box of old Quick Cooking magazines at a flea market and am posting the recipes I want to keep as I go through them.
My kids have declared these "phenomenal!" The muffins are good in their own right but the spread gives them an incredible extra dimension. Please note, it is a cream cheese spread and not a sweet icing. The chocolate chips will not change form much. Perfect with a big, cold glass of milk or cup of coffee!
These are so easy to make and require no baking, you can make these up to 5 days in advance and refrigerate in an airtight container. Plan ahead the balls have to be chilled overnight before coating in chocolate. Just a warning, these are VERY addicting LOL! You should get between 45-50 small balls, depending on the size you make them, so yield is only estimated.
