Funfetti Goey Bars

My boyfriend loves all things funfetti and cake batter so I made these for valentines dinner in a heart shaped pan and he couldn’t get enough of them! Thank you! 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup sprinkles, divided
  • 1/2 cup (from a 14 ounce can) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×9” pan with foil and spray liberally with cooking spray.
  2. Add cake mix, butter, and egg to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix until a thick dough forms. Add 1/3 cup sprinkles and stir until incorporated.
  3. Press about 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle with white chocolate chips and remaining 1/3 cup sprinkles. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top. Separate remaining dough into small balls and evenly space over the top of the bars. Press down to flatten.
  4. Bake bars for about 30 minutes, or until they just begin to brown. Cool completely before slicing, otherwise the mixture will be too gooey to cut.

Apple Crisp

Easy Apple Crisp,I mean so easy.  Since enrolling in a local CSA I have been trying to use fresh vegetables in fruits in different recipes. I wanted to make an Apple Crisp, only had Macintosh Apples, Even though the recipe says that it tastes great if you use a mix, and next time I will definitely do that.

Ingredients:

  • 6 medium (6 cups) apples, peeled, cored, sliced
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375°F.

Place apples into ungreased 8-inch square baking pan.

Combine brown sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples. Bake 25-35 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.

Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.

Stuffed Grilled Cheese

I saw this on pinterest and since I am unemployed and it was a rainy day I thought what better of a time to make this. I bought the ingredients and headed over to my Aunt June’s house to make it for her family.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of buttermilk biscuits
  • One package of velveeta cheese
  • One stick of butter
  • Can of tomato soup for the side! :)

So heres the problem my grocery store didn’t have veleveeta cheese so I got mild cheddar.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in the microwave and pour some into your 9 inch round cake pan. Take two biscuits at a time stuff them with as much cheese as you can fit. and stuff them into the pan. Pour butter over it, I didn’t use a whole stick like the recipe called for I just couldnt bring myself to do it.

You throw this in the oven for 15 minutes. Then cover with tin foil for the last 15. Mine took far longer to cook and were still even doughy when we pulled them out, they needed more time but we were just IMPATIENT!!!

It was tasty, I wish I had velveeta, and I also wish that they cooked better. But I do recommend! Success!

Lindsey’s Rocky Road Ting-a-Lings

I wanted to make a certain kind of dessert, and I knew what I had it mind so I did lots of research. As always I combined a few recipes, and added a little bit of my own flare.

For my grad party I was making lots of things, mostly things I did not have to bake, and things could freeze, so I could make then in advance, I dont have a picture of the actual cookies, but these cookies go under a lot of other names, Bird Nests, No bakes, the list goes on.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Bags of Chinese Fried Noodles (Oriental Aisle in Stop and Shop)
  • One bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
  • One bag of Butterscotch Chips
  • One bag of Mini Marshmallows
  • One cup of  salted peanuts

Melt both bags of chocolate chips I did it in the microwave with a little bit vegetable oil as always. Then stir in noodles and peanuts. There are two ways you can do the marshmallows, and what I did was split the batter in half, Mixed in marshmallows to the warm mix  melted them and then waited for it to cool a bit and gently stir in marshmallows so they stay whole. Either way, they both taste great.

Spoon out one spoonful of dough onto wax paper, let cool, refrigerate, freeze, or keep at room temp. Doesnt matter they are delish.  and they are the only dessert that wasn’t left at the end of the party so I think they were pretty good.

 

Closest thing I have to a picture, my ting a lings are in there somewhere, here are the desserts that were served at my party.

SUCCESS!

Cinnamon Heaven

Okay, so I saw this and thought it looked easy enough and tried it on a whim.

Sugary Crumb Pizza 

So I made the pizza according to the recipe ,but I found I had a lot more crumbs and that I could of used two cans of rolls.

Then when it came to the frosting I read the instructions wrong ( of course) and put in a TABLESPOON of Vanilla. oops. but I stil put it on the pizza, and it still tasted good, and it actually came out looking like this:

 

Success!
