Don't make a box mix again! These are easy and sooo good. Not overly sweet, because you use milk chocolate & unsweetened cocoa. My daughter bit into one and said "Wow, did you hear that"?. You could hear the thickness & moistness...ouuu..prepare entirely on stovetop. I used a milk chocolate bar/costs less..put in all 7oz. I added a little extr"

Made last night and my company loved it. It is very easy to make and very much a comfort dish. I used frozen raspberries/blackberries/blueberries. Tried to get a little moisture/ice out of them before using. Even though they were a little squishy, they cook anyway so no problem! The colors of the fruit cooking make this dish pretty, in whateve"

Holy Moly! If you are a chocolate lover, this is the recipe for you! Made for the first time today, and first time using mascarpone cheese. These are wonderful! I bought an unsweetened chocolate "baking bar". Costs less than box of squares, although 4oz size. I just added about 1oz semi sweet choc chips to make up the difference. The batter i"

My son and I made these for Thanksgiving. Made the day before and covered tray w/plastic wrap, refridgerated overnight, let come to room temp next day, and baked. OMG!! Everyone loved them. They are really good!! I melted butter and poured it over the rolls..it seeped in between them..getting absorbed..little salt on top..awesome. Dense roll. ...

I wanted to try this recipe because I was looking to make a dense, not fluffy or squishy texture cheesecake. Turned out great; all my guests loved it! Due to the volume of cream cheese (5 blocks), you will have a very full bowl when all ingred. are added. I made a chocolate cookie crust instead; very good. *Make sure cream cheese is at room tem...

Very chocolatey cookie. Moist inside with sort of a brownie texture. Shiny and crackled on top. Rich chocolate flavor; not overly sweet. Husband says it's a cookie for the gals..too chocolatey for him (light weight). I used all semi-sweet chocolate pieces for the chocolate and used instant coffee in place of the espresso beans. Smelled wonderf...

I was looking for an apple recipe to one up my apple crisp recipe and this may be it! Easy to make. In fact, you can pre-measure some of the ingredients and put in baggies: you can pre-chop the apples and bag: they will be baked anyway so no matter if they are a little brown. (I would do this as I will make it for a morning holiday function). Gre...

Very easy to make: true, but I don't think I would classify as a "cookie". Between a candy and a cookie. They eventually do set and are sort of fudgy, with a very good peanut butter flavor. I don't think I care for the uncooked oats, and I found the "cookie" to be a little greasy. If you love chocolate and peanut butter, try it and see what y...

WOW!! If you love chocolate and peanut butter, then definately make this recipe. The brownie layer is very tasty, the peanut butter layer is thick and tasty, and the ganache on top is heavenly! When you are done and cut into bars, you will love the triple layer look. In the brownie layer, I used semi sweet choc chips, not chunks, and in the gan...
