*I was in the 'Betty Frick'n Crocker' mood over the weekend..
Baked up a few goodies:
(Left) Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Caramel Cookie Cake,
(Middle) Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies
& (Right)LOW FAT Granola Cake...
Here's the recipes if you wanted to give them a try..
Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe -2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened
-3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar
-3/4 cup packed brown sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-2 eggs -2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
The Dark ChocolateChunk Chocolate Chip Cookies… used Nestle recipe and added a bag of Dark Chocolate Kisses that I chopped up… and about 3ish BIG Handfuls of Nestle Chocolate Chips…The chopped up Dark Chocolate had some shreds so it gets in the batter and makes in a bit more chocolately!!
The Peanut Butter Chocolate Caramel Chunk Cookie Cake was the Nestle Recipe
w/ 2 heaping Tablespoons of Peanut Butter added to the wet mixture of the recipe…
Once it was all mixed… added about 3ish BIG Handfuls of Nestle Chocolate Chips w/ 1 Bag of Chopped up Chocolate Bells & 1 Bag of Dove Caramel Chocolates.. Poured the batter in an 8ish inch Spring Form Cake Pan…Let it Bake on 350 for about 45 minutes.. Check periodically after about 30 minutes of baking… may have to turn the temp down a bit.. so the edges don’t get to over done before the middle bakes.. It’s very Thick & Dense.. Let Cool.. I top w/ about 15-20 Dove Caramel Chocolate Bites you saved back.. once they melt spread over the top.. Once cold…Suggest heating it up about 20ish seconds in the microwave.. A bit of Chocolate Sauce/Caramel Sauce..even Hot Fudge would ROCK w/ IT! :)
LOW FAT Granola Cake…. Definitely the ‘ANGEL’
