Â *I was in the 'Betty Frick'n Crocker' mood over the weekend..
Baked up a few goodies:
(Left) Peanut Butter ChocolateÂ Â Chunk Caramel Cookie Cake,
(Middle) Â 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 Cookiesâ€¦ used Â Nestle recipe and added a bag of Dark Chocolate Kisses that I chopped upâ€¦ and about 3ish BIG Handfuls of Nestle Chocolate Chipsâ€¦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 recipeâ€¦
Once it was all mixedâ€¦ added about 3ish BIG Handfuls of Nestle Chocolate ChipsÂ w/ 1 Bag of Chopped up Chocolate Bells & 1 Bag of Dove Caramel Chocolates.. Poured the batter in an 8ish inch Spring Form Cake Panâ€¦Let it Bake on 350 for about 45 minutes.. Check periodically after about 30 minutes of bakingâ€¦ may have to turn the temp down a bit.. so the edges donâ€™t get to over done before the middle bakes.. Itâ€™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 coldâ€¦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 Cakeâ€¦. Definitely the â€˜ANGELâ€™
