Crock Pot Chocolate Cake

I'll admit it, I've never made dessert in my crock pot. I always reserve it for the savory dinners like this and this, which are always perfect for an easy make-ahead meal. But, what about dessert? Having an excessive sweet tooth, I'm always thinking about dessert before dinner. You have to moderate how much you eat at dinner to save room for dessert, right? With that said, let's make dessert before dinner, so that it'll be ready in perfect time for dinner! This Crock Pot Chocolate Cake couldn't be easier to whip up and there's no cutting the cake and trying to wedge that first piece out either! You just scoop some out of the crock pot, almost like you would a cobbler. I have to admit though, this is probably the moistest cake I've ever eaten. Once you start eating it, you … [Read more...]

Pine Bark (Cracker Candy) Recipe

This is a fabulously easy recipe that makes deliciously chocolaty treats. Everyone will be so surprised that the base of these goodies is saltine crackers. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees at some point while doing the next several steps, based on how long your oven takes to preheat to that temperature. Cover a cookie sheet (with sides) with foil, and then grease the foil. (I just use some cooking spray.) Set out about a sleeve's worth of Saltine crackers -- salt side up. Prepare 1 cup of butter (two sticks), as you will be boiling it. To me, it is always easier when you cut them into pats of butter instead. Plop them all into the sauce pan, and start melting them! Add in 1 cup of packed brown sugar. Starting to look good! Keep stirring frequently while … [Read more...]
