The variations on this original recipe are almost endless. For double chocolate puddles, use semisweet chocolate chips for the vanilla chips. Or make peanut butter puddles by substituting peanut butter chips and peanuts for the vanilla chips and mixed nuts.
I came up with this recipe after my husband and I returned from our first trip to Hawaii. Dipping these tropical treats in a good cup of coffee brings us right back to the wonderful memories we made there.—Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, Virginia
I've made this cake for my children(see photo below), grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It is their favorite birthday cake...it's light and tasty, and lends itself beautifully to decorating. I often place a small arrangement of fresh flowers in the center.
The best thing about these little cakes is that you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now! Fruit Loops, licorice, M&M's and pretzels are all common ingredients that make up an uncommonly adorable treat!
I love the scent of lavender, and the edible flowers make this cheesecake one of the most unique I have ever tasted. You can use lavender honey in this recipe for extra flavor, but even without it, the lavender is very distinct. —Julie Palmer, Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania
Rich, buttery cookies become more delightful still topped with peanut butter cups and candy. They are cute for spring, but I've used appropriately colored decorations to match occasions at any time of the year.

I cook in a coffee shop, so I'm always looking for new and unique pies to serve my customers. The combination of blueberries and rhubarb in this recipe caught my eye and it was an instant best-seller. —Karen Dougherty, Freeport, Illinois
