Cake Batter Fudge - 10 Minute Recipe!
Ok people. This post is coming to you in less time than it took to actually make this stuff. Which was at most 10 minutes. Want an easy and amazing treat this weekend? Or right now? yellow cake mix butter milk confectioners’ sugar Because that’s all you need. 1 cup yellow cake mix + 1 cup confectioners’ sugar in microwave safe bowl (yeah, that means this stuff is not going near a pot or the oven. Mix ‘em together. Add 1/2 stick (1/4 cup butter) and 1/4 cup milk. I cut up my stick of butter because I decided I could afford the extra 10 seconds of effort. Place in microwave for 2 minutes. Take it out and stir immediately. Now it looks like cake batter. Mix in sprinkles and pour into a greased pan or, as I did, a plastic container. Oh, and did I mention that you could do this WITHOUT DAIRY? This time use margarine and soy milk. Yum. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then cut into squares. Congratulations. All the goodness of sweet fudge without the candy thermometers. No equipment. Ingredients Related:  Bars

Knock You Naked Brownies Knock You Naked Brownies Please meet my new favorite brownie in the entire world, Knock You Naked Brownies. They don’t really knock your clothes off when you take a bite, but almost. I’ve had these bookmarked from The Pioneer Woman for way too long and finally got the chance to make them for a cookout. They were so good, I made a second batch to take to my mom’s work the next day. So, how’s it taste? This is another one of those times where I wish the Interwebs were advanced enough so a brownie would pop out of your screen while you’re reading this. That oozing caramel gets me every time. Ingredients: 1 box (18.5 oz.) Directions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Caramel Brownie Recipe in Chic and Crafty, Dessert Recipes, Fall, Recipes Following is a delicious Brownie Recipe andguest post by Lisa at Wine & Glue… enjoy!! When I was about six months pregnant with our third little wonder, a good friend of mine shared this recipe with me. {Like my very pregnant self needed another method to get chocolate into my body.} These are insanely good. I have made them a dozen times, and without fail whenever I make them for someone, they ask for the recipe. I cautiously give it to them, reminding them that I call them Crack Brownies for a reason. Proceed with caution people. You start by melting some caramel with evaporated milk. As you test to make sure that it is the right . . . ummm . . . consistency . . . refrain from eating the entire pot with a spoon. Now combine dry German chocolate cake mix, melted butter, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Divide the batter in half and spread half of it into a greased 9 by 13 baking pan. The layer will be very thin, but that’s cool, the best is yet to come. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips.

Wild Rice Burgers The only time-intensive part of this recipe is the wild rice – depending on the particular grains you have, it may take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to cook. If you want, make the rice a day or two ahead, cool it on a baking sheet, and store it in the refrigerator until you're ready to make the burgers. We highly recommend seeking out natural lake and river wild rice, which has a better flavor than cultivated rice; either kind is delicious, though. If you don't live near the Great Lakes, look for wild rice at Trader Joe's; Emma has attested that it's quite good.

Loaded cookie bars Apparently some people are wanting healthy recipes these days?! I'll get back to that in February. :) I spent much of my December brainstorming sugary, gooey treats, so it has been hard to get them out of my brain. Last week I was pondering a "loaded" cookie in bar form, and how easy they would be if I used pre-made dough. These bars were super slick to make, and they were as yummy as they look. I did not share them very well with others! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine: One 16.5-oz. roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, at room temperature 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup peanut butter chips 1 cup M&M's chocolate candies 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped Thoroughly mix ingredients together with your hands. Press the mixture into the prepared baking dish, and distribute the dough evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 22-25 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.

salted caramel brownies A couple months ago, someone requested that I try my hand at caramel brownies. Amazingly, this person was not my husband, but he endorsed this idea so wholeheartedly that I suspect he might have paid this person off. Then again, in most people’s minds, who doesn’t want to make caramel brownies? But then, as I did a quick search or two, I discovered things that caused me to make that crooked face that I made when I’m thinking really hard, because sometimes after a day of explaining to a preschooler why we have to wear pants when we leave the apartment when I fully understand the desire to simply not wear pants sometimes, thinking is really hard. By now, I already accepted that any further resistance would be futile. The only idea I had left was the craziest one, wherein you kind of fake-make caramel candies that are cold and big enough that they take longer to disappear into the the batter than the batter takes to bake.

Deep Dish Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars If you love fudge, and you love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. You just found their love child. One of my all-time favorite cookies is oatmeal chocolate chip. However, sometimes I want more to sink my teeth into. Made in a 13x9 pan so it's over an inch tall, this is perfection. And instead of chocolate chips, it's this river of rich chocolate that cuts through the sweet oatmeal mixture. Cloud nine! My mom made these all while growing up, so I'm not sure where she got the recipe. Deep Dish Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars 2 sticks margarine (I've used butter and it's worked fine) 2 eggs 2.5 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 2 cups brown sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 1/3 cup milk 3 cups oatmeal Mix the butter, eggs and brown sugar. In a saucepan over medium heat melt together: 1 can eagle's brand (for some reason works better than the generic...and trust me...I'm the generic QUEEN!) 1/3 cup margarine (I've used butter and it's worked fine too) 1 tsp. vanilla

The Tale of the Carmelitas We live in a big-but-not-huge town. We have a P.F. Chang's and a Pottery Barn and two malls and two full-price movie theaters. But we don't have a Williams-Sonoma. Instead, we have a few delightful, locally-owned kitchen stores. One of them holds a monthly baking contest, and these Carmelitas were supposed to be my ticket to local baking contest greatness. See, a Carmelita is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill treat. When I got my kitchen store newsletter in January, I started planning out my strategy. The email naming the winner took a few extra weeks to be sent--no lie--and I was on pins and needles the whole time. Epilogue: If I sound just a wee bit crazy, get a load of this! CarmelitasAll of the crazy obsessiveness boils down to this: Carmelitas are to-die-for. 32 caramel squares, unwrapped 1/2 cup heavy cream 3/4 cup butter, melted 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup flour 1 cup rolled oats 1 teaspoon baking soda 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
