The first recipe is courtesy of Kae Zorman. Oh my gosh, if you like chocolate you will love this and it’s really easy. I have already served it twice.
Double chocolate delight
32 Oreos crushed in a food processor
1/2 C melted butter
8 oz. milk chocolate chunks
3.5 oz. dark chocolate pieces
7 oz. whipping cream
1 can spray whip cream
12 strawberries sliced in half
Crush Oreos in food processor and then add melted butter to them and run through food processor a little longer to make a slushy mix. Press into 5×14 tart pan (I use a small springform pan). Freeze mixture for at least one half hour.
Break up chocolate pieces in a medium-size bowl and heat cream to very hot but not boiling point. Pour over chocolate and let sit one minute. Mix until creamy and chocolate is thoroughly melted. Pour over frozen crust. Lay strawberries on top of chocolate mixture and place in refrigerator for at least two hours or overnight. Slice in pie shaped sections to serve. Top with whipped cream.
Pecan pie muffins
1 C packed light brown sugar
1/2 C all-purpose flour
2 C chopped pecans
2/3 C butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini or regular muffin cups generously. Grease them well or they will stick. In medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour and pecans. In a separate bowl, beat butter and eggs together. Stir in dry ingredients just until combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 12-13 minutes for mini muffins or 15-17 minutes for regular size muffins. Run a knife around edge of each muffin and pop it out.
PB and J pie
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C confectioners’ sugar
1/3 C peanut butter
1 chocolate crumb crust (9 in.)
1/2 C strawberry preserves
2 C whipped topping
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Spoon into crust. Top with preserves and whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Yield: 8 servings.
Thought – At least once in your life you’ll need a doctor, lawyer, policeman and preacher. But every day, three times a day, you need a farmer.
