The amounts stated are enough to frost the top of a 13 x 9-inch sheet cake, to frost and fill a layer cake double the amounts, this frosting freezes very well so make a double recipe and freeze for the next time, the confectioners sugar and cocoa must be sifted first.
I use my recipe#237573 you may of coarse use store bought --- vanilla ice cream may be used in place of the chocolate ice cream, frozen yogurt also will work well, a prepared chocolate crumb crust or graham crust will work well fine--- although I have left as optional to take this yet to another level mix in chopped frozen peanut butter cups, they must be frozen when mixed in or they will crush when mixing, chop them first then freeze, and don't be afraid to add in a little more than 1/2 cup peanut butter :)
This will work well using any flavored Oreo cookie but the holidays I suggest to use the mint it will give the bark a lovely green color and a great flavor --- I have stated the nuts as optional you may add them in or omit ---servings is only estimated
This is an easy one-bowl cake that is nothing short of amazing! --- make certain to prepare the frosting glaze while the cake is baking as it must be added on while the cake is still warm, no baking powder or soda in this cake, it's a rich dense chocolate cake that more like a brownie texture.
This must be put onto a cold cake that has chilled from the refrigerator or it will not harden, this works wonderful for a bundt or tube cake, it may also be used for an ice cream cake --- this glaze firms up but does not turn rock hard
I have listed 1/2 package of pudding mix you may adjust to taste, for a stronger flavor use more, chocolate and vanilla are very good! you may serve this right away or refrigerate until ready to serve the mixture will thicken even more while standing.
This is a highly-rated recipe taken from All Recipes.Com submitted by Joanna Knudsen --- the only alteration I made was I omitted the peanut butter baking chips and reduced the chocolate baking chips --- the peanut butter cups must be chopped then frozen before adding to the cookie batter, or they will mush up while mixing
This is better than any Dairy Queen frozen cake! ---experiment using different flavors of ice cream and toppings, the possibilities are endless, small Oreo cookies and Oreo ice cream works well --- homemade soft cookies will not work for the crust, the cookies must be hard --- prep time includes 5 hour freezing time --- this is *SO* good!
You will be surprised at how easy and delicious this fudge is and it sets to the perfect texture! --- if you prefer a less sweeter taste then remove 2 tablespoons of white sugar after measuring the 1-2/3 cups --- evaporated milk may be replaced for the cream, using good-quality chocolate chips for this will only improve the flavor--- for easy removal from the pan, line pan with a large piece of foil overlapping on both sides, to remove the fudge lift up foil, remove foil from bottom of the fudge then place the block of fudge onto a flat surface and slice into small squares, or you may slice the fudge in the pan --- you will love this fudge!
Perfect biscotti made with a cake mix, if desired drizzle with a white chocolate glaze after the cookies are cooled, melt a 10-ounce bag of white chocolate chips with 2 teaspoon shortening, mix until smooth then drizzle over each cookie.
Coloured sugar, sprinkles, grated coconut or crushed candy canes may be sprinkled on right after dipping into the chocolate, have fun and use your imagination to decorate the coated pretzels, it's a fun holiday project for children of all ages! :)
This is the grand prize winner taken from Taste of Home's Simple&Delicious magazine, Nov/Dec/07 submitted by Mary Ann Marino -- if your coconut strands are long I suggest to chop with a knife --- these are SO delicious!
Great for potlucks, you may double the complete recipe and bake in two pans these freeze very well, in place of the nuts dried cranberries or raisins may be used or any dried fruit desired, this is a fairly sweet bar so you might want to reduce the sugars slightly if desired --- servings is only esimated depending on the size of the bars --- for greasing pan see recipe#78579
These are the *best* bars and so easy to make, the trick to these is not to overbake, mine bake out perfectly in a 350 degree oven, second-lowest rack for 22 minutes, servings is only estimated --- add in 1 teaspoon cinnamon also if desired --- this was developed using full-fat peanut butter :)
