"I made these for a house warming party where everything was hor dourves that required no utensils. So, I made these in mini-muffin tins. Couldn't find chocolate Cool Whip, but used regular Cool Whip, Starbucks via and a little cocoa powder and powdered sugar for the filling. Piped the filling in until it was just at the top, then froze them in ""

"Delicious and so super easy. I made this for a friend's housewarming party and it was the perfect hor dourve. Assembled it ahead of time, then put it in the oven when I was ready for it. Cut into small triangles and served. They were a huge success, and for me definitely one of the least complicated and time intensive things I prepared for the""
"Delicious and tasty. Made them last year (2010) for Thanksgiving and it was the 1st time I didn't have a ton of sweet potatoes left over.

Therefore, watch closely the last 20 minutes or so, because overcooking will ruin the texture. The timing is by far the most difficult part of this recipe""
Reviewed Roasted Brussels Sprouts
"Another smashing Ina success! Have served these so many times, and even people who tell me they hate brussel sprouts end up loving these. Amazing with roasted chicken. Anyone who is hesitant or unsure about eating brussel sprouts should try this recipe, you'll be changed forever. So yummy!!""
"Really good basic recipe and assembly instructions. However, I still had to fine tune it. The eggplant was good enough to just eat by itself, which is exactly what happened to the smaller end pieces as my family was walking by. Before dredging, I salted the eggplant slices, then let them drain on racks for about 20-30 minutes, then rinsed and pa""
