    OK -- here are two yummy ones. They are easy to make, but do -- gasp -- use some premade ingredients.

    Better Than Sex Cake (I beg to differ, but the cake is very good)

    Bake one packaged german chocolate or devil's food cake according to directions in a 9 X 13 pan. While still warm, poke holes at 1" intervals with the end of a wooden spoon. Into the holes, pour 3/4 can sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup Mrs. Richardson's butterscotch-caramel ice cream topping. Refrigerate until cool. Spread the top with one 8 oz container extra creamy cool whip and sprinkle three chopped Heath or Skor bars on top. Keep refrigerated.


    Peanut Butter Pie

    1 prepared chocolate graham cracker pie (I just use a recipe for a graham crust but use chocolate ones)

    1 egg white, beaten
    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 cups cool whip

    1/4 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup plus one Tablespoon hot fudge topping
    2 cups cool whip
    2 T finely chopped roasted peanuts

    Brush crust with egg white, bake 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool.

    In a medium bowl, beat peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar. Fold in whipped topping, 1/2 cup at a time. Spoon mixture into cooled pie shell. Using a spatula, smooth the top and make a 1/2" ridge around the edge to keep the topping from sliding off. Refrigerate.

    In a microwave safe bowl, heat the cream on high power just until it boils.
    Stir in the hot fudge topping until it is melted. Reserve 1 T of this mixture (do not refrigerate) for later use. Gently spread the remaining mixture onto the chilled pie. Chill for about one hour.

    Spread whipped topping over the top, covering the fudge. Drizzle with reserved chocolate and sprinkle with peanuts. chill until ready to serve.

    I love anything peanut butter, so here goes:

    Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
    1 cup peanut butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla

    Using electric or hand mixer, beat the egg. Add the other ingredients and beat until mixed. Shape a tablespoon's worth into balls. Place 2in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly with a fork, making a crisscross pattern. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 to 18 minutes or until set.

    Cool for 5 minutes. This makes about 2 dozen cookies.

    Speaking of cakes, here's one I like. It's easy, and good.

    Cajun Smash Cake

    1 cup toasted, chopped pecans
    1 egg
    1/4 cup Brandy
    1 box yellow cake mix
    1 stick of butter (softened)
    8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
    2 MORE eggs
    1 box powdered sugar – I used half a box and it was fine
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Toast pecans. Let them cool before chopping.
    Beat egg with brandy.
    Mix cake mix, egg, brandy, and butter (mixture will be dry).
    Moisten hands with water, then press batter into ungreased 9 x 13 pan.
    Press pecans into top of batter.
    Beat cream cheese, 2 eggs, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until creamy.
    Pour over batter already in pan.
    Place pan on cookie sheet, to prevent scorching bottom.
    Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes until golden brown.
    Allow to thoroughly cool, before cutting into squares.

    Store in container or wrap in foil. (You might want to consider a locked box if you have midnight raiders in your house.)

    The cake freezes well. Serve thawed, at room temperature.

    Yield: 12-16 squares
    Prep time: 15 minutes.
    Bake time: 35 minutes.
    Cool time, 2 hours or more.

    Here's mine:


    Buy the candy bar.
    Slowly peel back the wrapper.
    Place the chocolate in your mouth.
    Bite.
    Chew slowly.
    Smile.

    Yummy Date Squares

    Date Filling:
    1 lb chopped dates
    1 cup cold water
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    grated rind of 1⁄2 orange
    1 tsp lemon juice

    Date Squares:
    1⁄2 cups cake and pastry flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1⁄4 tsp salt
    1 cup butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 cups oatmeal ( mix in some wheat germ and flax, too)

    Date Filling:
    Cook dates, water orange rind and sugar in small saucepan over moderate heat until thick and smooth. Remove from heat, add fruit juices and mix well. Cool before spreading on cookie or oatmeal batter.

    Date Squares:
    Sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Rub in butter with tips of fingers. Add sugar and oatmeal. Mix well with fingers until all oatmeal is covered. It should be like a crumble. Spread one half of mixture crumbs into a greased, shallow pan, pat down to make it smooth. Cover with cooled date filling, spreading it evenly, then cover with the remaining crumbs. Pat to make smooth. Bake at 325F for 30 to 35 minutes. Cut while still warm and allow to
    cool in the pan.

    Chocolate fondue

    1/3 c. whipping cream
    8 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
    3T Grand Mariner, or Kahlua, or whatever liqueur you like

    Bring cream to simmer, than reduce to low. Add chopped chocolate. Whisk until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Add liqueur. Put into a fondue pot (small) or a warming pan. Dip in things like sliced bananas, apples, dried apricots. nuts, angel food or pound cake cut into cubes. You can leave out the liqueur if you want, it is still orgasmic.
    Keep passing the open windows.

    I posted one of my in noydaybuttoday's chocolate thread. That one is a Chocolate Mousse Ganache thingy. So good! My other favorite dessert is tiramisu. Here's an easy recipe I use for simple tiramisu!

    6 egg yolks
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1 pound mascarpone cheese
    1 1/2 cups strong espresso, cooled
    2 teaspoons dark rum
    24 packaged ladyfingers
    1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate shavings, for garnish

    In a large bowl, using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Add mascarpone cheese and beat until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of espresso and mix until thoroughly combined.
    In a small shallow dish, add remaining espresso and rum. Dip each ladyfinger into espresso for only 5 seconds. Letting the ladyfingers soak too long will cause them to fall apart. Place the soaked ladyfinger on the bottom of a 13 by 9 inch baking dish, breaking them in half if necessary in order to fit the bottom.

    Spread evenly 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers. Arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with remaining mascarpone mixture.

    Cover tiramisu with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to 8 hours.

    Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
    I also dust the top with cocoa powder sometimes.

    PUMPKIN CAKE WITH CREAM CHEESE ICING

    this is my wonderful melt-in-your mouth pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing recipe. this is awesome for the holidays. make sure you store it in the fridge, though!

    2 c. sugar
    4 eggs, well beaten
    1 c. vegetable oil

    2 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. salt
    3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, OR 1 tsp. each cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice
    1/2 c. raisins (optional)

    preheat oven to 350. grease baking pans. combine sugar, oil, pumpkin, eggs. combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. add to pumpkin mixture and beat on medium for one minute. pour batter into pans and bake for 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

    icing:

    1 1/2-2 8oz bricks of softened cream cheese
    1 c. powdered sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla

    using mixer, beat on high for 30 seconds until consistency is smooth (no lumps!). do not overmix or icing will be too thin. make sure cakes are cooled completely before icing. frost and store cake in fridge! cake will keep for about a week because it is so moist. yum!

    Sounds good. My mother used to make something like your dump cake, but I have no idea what she called it.
