I improvised on the Chocolate Chip… They didn’t have any… but, Why Not!…

We had to have something “chocolate!”…

So I made Chocolate Chip Cookies… bent them in half… filled with Chocolate Fudge Frosting ( a little ) and dipped in sprinkles… 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I placed them in some small red/pink flowered cupcake papers I found after Valentine’s Day for 75% OFF… Made approximately 80… we sometimes have 30 ladies playing…

Some basics I want to share …

For most of the cookies I made I used cake mixes…

Recipe: k10015436

1- box cake mix (your choice of flavor)

2- eggs

1/2 cup oil or… 1- stick of margarine or… 1- stick of butter…

2 Ingredient Fudge… Delicious!

 Gift…

This is probably the easiest recipe I have ever made…

I didn’t have a thingsweet in the house…

You know those kind of days…

So cold… didn’t want to go out…

Somewhere in the back of my mind I remembered a recipe for making fudge out of Canned Frosting

I looked it up and sure enough… there it was!…

and it only called for one other ingredient… chocolate chips… which I knew I had some left from Christmas in the refrigerator

You can read the recipe that takes all of 5 minutes to make and then chill for about 10-15 more minutes until you can cut in little squares…

It is so delicious… and SO EASY!…

I used…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

plus a variety of chocolate/semi-sweet chocolate pieces

About This Recipe

“A family friend makes this for all types of church get-togethers. I ate some when mom brought it home and I could not believe how simple this is to put together.”

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) cans of ready to spread frosting, any flavor
  • 1 (12 ounce) packages chocolate chips, any flavor ( ie. chocolate chips)

Directions

  1. Make sure you have complimentary flavors.
  2. Melt the chips in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
  3. Melt frosting until pourable, about 30 seconds.
  4. Mix together the chips and frosting and pour into a greased 8×8 pan.
  5. Chill until set, about an hour.
  6. Makes a very soft, smooth fudge.
  7. Do not use the toffee chips, as they don’t melt very well.

Terry http://terry1954.wordpress.com/author/terry1954/  just invited me for a cup of coffee… after a fellow blogger invited her…

Wasn’t that sweet!…coffee1cookie

Some questions to answer… will let me know what you prefer…

I might even give you a cookie recipe to go with your coffee…

So enjoy!

1) How many cups of coffee per day?  One… maybe two… Early morning… with Jill, my cat… She looks out the window while I check my messages… Hot Tea later in the evening… flavored or not with real sugar!

2) What is your favourite caffeine delivery system? Actually Diet Pepsi has me… starting mid-morning… Ice Cold!180px-Diet_Pepsi_Logo_svg

4) What was your worst cup of coffee? NO SUGAR PLEASE!

5) What does your favourite mug say? My latest was from a niece this past Christmas… a mug that has a cat on it and says, “It’s the cat’s house… we just pay the mortgage!” …cute, huh!

6) How do you take your coffee? Half & Half lately… I decided if I’m going to drink it… have it the way I like it!

7) When was your first cup? I’m sure it was when my Mom fixed it with lots of milk and sugar…and then when I was having my first baby… I craved coffee… but, no sugar!… just milk… has stayed the same ever since…k6691337

8) Have you ever gone on a coffee tea date? Hardly ever go just for coffee… While waste a trip… when you can eat!
