So it has been a really long time since I’ve posted anything here, but we tried this recipe out tonight and it was SO good and SO easy that I wanted to share. It got two big thumbs up from the kids!
1 box spice cake mix
1 can pure pumpkin
1/2 bag mini chocolate chips (12 oz. bag)
In a medium size bowl, stir spice cake mix and can of pumpkin together until well mixed. If it is too thick to mix well, you can add just a little splash of milk to help, but it should stay pretty thick. Dump in about half a bag of mini chocolate chips and stir in (half a bag really is enough). Scoop into spoon-size balls onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
You can also easily make these into muffins, just bake a little bit longer.
These are the easiest apple dumplings you will ever make and they are so delicious, you never need to try another recipe. A friend linked to this apple dumpling recipe on Pioneer Woman’s site and I just had to try it. It was definitely a keeper, so I’m linking to it here to share with you and so that I never lose the recipe. Go make these, drop some vanilla bean ice cream on top, then come back and try to tell me you didn’t eat the whole pan.
A co-worker passed this recipe along to me just after the holidays and I completely forgot about it until this weekend. When I found it attached to my fridge, I knew I had to make up a batch. With only four ingredients, this is super easy to make. It’s also a great recipe for the kids to help with since the chocolate can be melted in the microwave!
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 package (6 squares) white chocolate, melted
1 package (8 squares) semi-sweet chocolate, melted
10 Oreo cookies, crumbled
Add peanut butter to white chocolate and stir until well blended. Stir 1/2 of cookie crumbles into each bowl of chocolate. Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate mixtures onto a waxed paper covered baking sheet, alternating colors of chocolates. Swirl with a knife. Refrigerate until firm (about 1 hour). Break into pieces and enjoy!

1 package Oreo cookies
1 package cream cheese
1 package Almond Bark (or any melted chocolate)
Crush entire box of Oreo cookies. A food processor
works well for this or you can place them in a plastic
ziplock bag and use a hammer. Mix Oreos with cream
cheese then roll into balls.
Melt chocolate. Dip balls into chocolate and place on
wax paper to cool. Store in refrigerator.
You can make these with any variation of Oreos. The
vanilla Oreos are delicious with white chocolate!
