Ultimate Fudge Brownies
Submitted by Gladys - Rigby, ID

This is an incredible brownie recipe. They were served at my baby shower and were a hit! One of my favorite baby shower desserts.

Ingredients:
1 chocolate cake mix
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
2 c. milk
1 (12 oz) package chocolate chips
1 tub chocolate frosting

Mix cake mix, pudding, and milk. Pour into a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let cool and spread chocolate frosting on top. Serves 20-25

Tip: Because these are so rich, cooking them on a cookie sheet so that they are thinner works better. It also serves more. Although the chocolate frosting is optional, it really makes the brownie thick and rich.


Quick Rocky Road Fudge

Fudge is a great option as it can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator. It makes an awesome baby shower dessert.

Ingredients:
5 oz evaporated milk
1 2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. mini marshmallows
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
chopped walnuts

Mix milk, sugar, butter and salt in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until boiling. Once boiling, cook for an additional 4 minutes, stirring constantly. It is important you stir it constantly so it doesn't burn. Remove from heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients and marshmallows. Stir mixture until marshmallows are melted. Pour into an 8x8 greased pan and cool in refrigerator. Fudge is ready when cooled and firm.

Tip: I like to use tinfoil in my pan. This makes for easy removal when you are ready to serve your fudge and keeps your pan clean.


Easy Cream Puffs
Submitted by Natalie - Idaho Falls, ID


Ingredients:
3/4 c. margarine
3/4 c. flour
4 c. milk
Whipped topping or instant pudding (for filling)

Mix all of the ingredients together. Use an ice cream scoop or tablespoon and drop one by one onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool. Cut in half and fill with whipped topping or instant pudding. Put the puff back together.

Alternate Idea: This also works great with chicken salad instead of pudding or whipped topping.


Easy Individual Tarts

Ingredients:
2 eggs
