Most new brides are also new in the kitchen. Here are some EASY recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth:
1 12-oz. package chocolate chips (milk chocolate or semi-sweet)
1 12 oz. can (or 3/4th of a 16 oz. can) ready to spread chocolate frosting
1. Melt the chips in a 4-cup glass measuring cup by microwaving for 1 minute @ 50% power. Stir and microwave another minute at 50% power.
2. Add the frosting and stir until combined (you can add chopped nuts if you like).
3. Pour into and 8x8 pan sprayed with Pam cooking spray.
4. Chill until set. about an hour.
Variations: For Thanksgiving I use Nestle's butterscotch morsels and vanilla icing and I add chopped pecans. For Christmas I use white chocolate chips, vanilla icing and add dried cranberries and pistachios.
2-Ingredient Pumpkin Cake:
1 box spice cake mix
1 15 oz. can pumpkin (with no spices added)
Mix the canned pumpkin and the cake mix (don't add eggs, water or oil - just the dry mix). Batter will be thick.
Spread in a 9x13 pan that is sprayed with Pam cooking oil. (yes, it is thin. It comes out looking like brownies but tastes like cake).
Bake at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes (until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
You can eat as is with a dollop of whipped cream or ice with a can of cream cheese icing.
2-Ingredient Macaroon Cookies:
1 14-oz. package Angel Flake coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Mix together and drop by large tablespoons onto a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam (I like to lay parchment paper on my cookie sheet instead).
Bake at 325 for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
