When Mom wanted to treat us to something special, she made this awesome dessert. We could never resist the tender chocolate cake, the fluffy marshmallow layer or the fudge topping. It's very difficult to stop at one piece.
"The treats are easy for any age to make but pretty enough to share with friends. You can add color sprinkles to customize them for any holiday or occasion," relates Marcia Porch of Winter Park, Florida.
Ho ho ho! St. Nick can drop in any time at all when you bake these cute-as-can-be treats. To create them, our kitchen staff followed a scrumptious cookie recipe from Jill Boruff of Soap Lake, Washington and formed Santas with heart-shaped cookie cutters.—Jill Boruff, Soap Lake, Washington
It was always a treat when Mom made these cookies—and let me help in the kitchen when she did. Nowadays, I always double the recipe because they disappear so fast. The marshmallow is a nice surprise because the frosting hides it.
I dress up a boxed cake mix by stirring in sour cream, red food coloring and chocolate chips. A white chocolate and cream cheese frosting—sprinkled with crushed mints—is the crowning touch.—Donna Bardocz, Howell, Michigan
