This is a fantastic crockpot recipe! Found it on the internet years ago and have modified it some. The chicken is so tender, it falls apart, and it makes incredible gravy. It's my most requested recipe and our favorite meal. My daugters (ages 4 and 1) love it too! We eat it with a side of vegetable and sometimes with Texas toast.
Don't like too sweet pecan pie? You'll like this one then, it's mostly nuts with just enough filling to hold them together. Nice change of pace and very decadent. I saw a pecan pie at a local Creole restaurant, in a suburb of Washington DC, that gave me the idea to develop this one.
EDITED TO ADD: This is just a family recipe and treat. It is not exact, it will not be to everyone's liking. I have never had them turn out soggy or so bad they had to be thrown out. All I can say is cut down the butter or add more cheerios and maybe not everyone will llike them. I've seen many recipes posted her that were not exact and just family recipes. I'm sorry it has not worked out for a couple of posters, but it is not an exact recipe with proper instructions, its something mom made us as a snack to stretch money that was not there. Thanks for trying it but if your set against something absoulutely turning out perfect and to your liking with exact measurements and a science to it, you may want to pass this recipe by. Not a health conscience snack, my mom made these for us because her family could not afford popcorn when they were growing up and this was their alternative not a healthy snack but not only do I love it but also my kids love to have something nana use to have
Oh LORD, have mercy! LOL! This stuff is the kind-of snack you sit down in front of the tv with and you look down and it's all gone! The best part about this recipe is (other than the end product) the fact no candy thermometer is necessary.
This recipe was given to my mom by a next door neighbor many years ago. It makes a wonderful dark chocolate cupcake, or double the recipe for a sheet or layer cake. It has become a family favorite and is always requested at birthdays.
I called this recipe "Easter Sunday Cheesecake" because that is when I first served it when a bunch of friends got together for Easter dinner after church. A delicious cheesecake recipe that is a bit different in that it's made in a 9x13 pan as opposed to the usual springform pan. For a little extra, I add a dash of cinnamon to the crust mixture....YUM! (Cook time includes time for cheesecake to cool overnight)
I "made up" this frosting to use on Karen In Colorado's Jello Cake (Recipe #23480)instead of regular Cool Whip! This would also make a great fruit dip! YUMMY!!! (Makes enough for 1 sheet cake or 2 layer cake)
