Joy I haven't tried this yet but I will - it was just emailed to me today.

The most dangerous cake recipe in the world!

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

> 4 tablespoons flour
> 4 tablespoons sugar
> 2 tablespoons cocoa
> 1 egg
> 3 tablespoons milk
> 3 tablespoons oil
> 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
> A small splash of vanilla extract
> 1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)
>
> Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
> Pour in the milk and oil and mix well...
> Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again..
> Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
> The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
> Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
> EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
> And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
> Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Paul posted this a while ago and I tried it last week. I am going to give him a spanking for introducing me to this! It's dangerously good!

Merry (m75248) Dear Cookie Friends, I am exhausted, I just finished baking and decorating 32 Sugar Cookie Eiffel Towers for my teenager's French Class! Off to read and get some sleep. Yes I have made these before, a few weeks ago before they left on a trip to France, now they are back and I am spoiling them - the cookies are so pretty, I wish I knew how to post a darn photo here...hum maybe edit copy paste? Haven't tried that one.....

Merry! Congrats on the cookies. I made 76 cherry crisps for my birthday last week and took them to the library staff. I thought that was tiring, but I didn't decorate them. Did your son enjoy his trip? I hope it went well.

ahhh... I just got a call from Brandon's French Class - they loved the cookies and called to say "Merci"... worth every grueling moment in the kitchen!

Hollow out the cores, put them in a pie pan and make a mixture of butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and maple syrup. Pack that into the core hole. YUM!

I like to add raisins to the mix :)

Golden raisins,dried cranberries or dried cherries are also nice.


message 16: by Claere (new)

Claere (omenonwings) | 59 comments dried cherries?


message 17: by Kim, Cookie Master (last edited Jun 09, 2010 07:30AM) (new)

Yes, dried cherries. SunMaid makes a realy good dried sour cherry that comes in a foil bag with a zip top. I use them whole or chopped in all sorts of recipes.

They are also quite tasty on their own.

SunMaid also makes a Golden Raisin and Dried Cherry mixture which is what I use in Comfort Cookies.

Claere (omenonwings) | 59 comments as far as i know, i've never tried dried cherries.

Diane ~Firefly~ | 19 comments I guess this is the best folder as it is baked, but isn't a cookie, brownie, cake or pie.

Rolo Pretzel Treats
pretzel squares (may be called snaps) they have a grid
rolo candy
pecans (optional)

Set oven to 250-275
line cookie sheet with parchment paper
1. put as many pretzel squares on cookie sheet as you want to make or will fit.
2. put one rolo on each pretzel square
3. put cookie sheet in oven for about 2 minutes (you just want the rolo to get a little soft)
4. Remove from oven and top each rolo with another pretzel square or a pecan (gently pushing down)
5. Move parchment sheet with pretzel treats to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Store in an airtight container.

My mom made these for a few years. We experimented with other nuts, like cashews and did it with M&M's. Both worked really well.

I found this today in an article celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Oreo. I thought that they looked and sounded really good. These are similar to the cake balls my neighbor makes.



NO BAKE TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COOKIE BALLS

1 pkg. Oreo cookies
1/2 cup milk
1 package JELL-O chocolate instant pudding
12 to 16 Baker's semi-sweet chocolate squares
4 to 8 Bakers white chocolate squares

In a small bowl, make a paste out of the pudding and the milk. Put 36 of the Oreos into a gallon-size zip-top bag and crush them (with a rolling pin or a mallet). Add the crushed cookies to the pudding mixture and stir will. Form the mixture into small balls and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet; freeze them for about 10 minutes.

While they're in the freezer, please the semi-sweet chocolate squares in a microwave-safe bowl and heat, stirring often, until melted. Dip the chilled oreo balls into the melted chocolate, place them on a fresh wax-paper lined cookie sheet, and refrigerate or freeze for another 10 minutes.

Melt the white chocolate squares, and drizzle the melted white chocolate over the cookie balls using a fork or a spoon. Return them to the refrigerator to harden briefly before serving.

Makes 40 to 45 cookie balls

This is the recipe from my neighbor exactly as she gave it to me. You can use any color of candy melt you want and you could even make lollipops out of these if you wanted to. I have seen these the size of tangerines,but I like her truffle sized ones better. To each their own. The original recipe called for chocolate cake and frosting but she did red velvet with cream cheese frosting and dipped in white chocolate for the first ones. I have done vanilla cake with lemon frosting and white chocolate myself and it was really good.




CAKE BALLS

Prep Time: 40 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Ready In: 1 Hour 10 Minutes
Servings: 36

Mix and match cake and icing flavors as well as the chocolate coatings. They can be nicely packaged and given as gifts.


Ingredients:
1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix

1 (16 ounce) container prepared frosting

1 (3 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating, or just melt chocolate chips.


Directions:

1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended.

2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.

3. Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

It is so good too. Just make sure that you use a really big mug that is microwave safe. It puffs up like a souffle.

Lori K LOL, I was thinking one egg seemed like a lot.

Good source of protein, right? :)
