Chocolate Chip Cookie Dessert
Drizzled with melted chocolate, this frosty family favorite from Carol Marnach in Sioux Falls, South Dakota couldn’t be much easier to prepare. "My husband and three sons love it so much that we even use our grill to make it on camping trips—or during the hot summer months when I don’t like turning on the oven," she says.
