Choco-Mellow Brownies in a Flash

 Saturday was my husbands company party. He decided that since I did all the shopping he would not have me make any dessert. It was a sweet gesture, especially coming from him. So when he left early I changed my mind and had only 1 1/2 hours to get dessert ready for a group. These brownies are so easy and have always been a hit.

Luckily I saved one for a picture.

Choco-Mellow Brownies
2 boxes brownie mix.
Make brownies according to package directions. Pour into a grease cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Take out of oven and cover with marshmellows.

Return to oven and bake 5 minutes more.

Let cool. (Unfortunately I did not have time to let them cool for very long).

Here's where the homemade and fast factor comes in. This recipe came from my Aunt Karen with a few additions of my own.
2 Minute Fudge Frosting
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup milk
dash salt
1/2 cup butter
4 Tbs cocoa or 2 squares unsweetened chocolate

Put all ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Pour into a mixing bowl. Add:
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup powdered sugar

Beat until it is mixed well. Frosting will be runny.
If you are fast you can pour it over the brownies and then just spread it around. SO EASY! (I am horrible at frosting)

Place brownies in freezer or fridge. To let the frosting set up.




I left them in the freezer for about 25 minutes. The secret I learned this time was to cut them as soon as you take them out of the freezer. It was really easy. Before I have had a terrible time getting them to cut because of the marshmellow layer.

All ready in record time!!
This frosting recipe works well even if you half the recipe and only make 1 box of brownies.
These brownies seem to get better with time. If you have the time make them the day before you need them. Also, if you have room keep them refrigerated. They are good either way though.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
