It's tough to beat a three-ingredient treat—especially one that's so easy and sweet! I rely on refrigerated cookie dough to make these munchable morsels. Each cookie is dressed up with a white fudge-covered pretzel and melted white chocolate. —Michelle Brenneman, Orrville, Ohio
"When I need to throw together something in a hurry, I turn to these no-bake squares," says Kathy Steffen. "And because the recipe doesn't include chocolate, you can pack them for long drives or vacations without worrying about melted-chocolate messes," she writes from her Fond du Lac, Wisconsin home.
You can easily make several of these pretty palaces with a boxed cake mix, canned frosting and a few common confections. Grab a goblet of milk and enjoy one with your prince of princess. &dmash;Taste of Home Test Kitchen
My husband and I were taking care of our two grandsons, Nathan and Brandon, and their mom left the ingredients for this fun dessert. The boys loved pressing the dough into the pan, spreading the frosting and adding the candy "pizza" toppings. They were so proud to serve yummy wedges to their parents when they returned.—Ruth Shefcyk, Lake Orion, Michigan
YOUNGSTERS are sure to circle this merry-go-round in a hurry...and form long lines to get a piece! CT's kitchen staff created the carousel's top and base with cakes. For the pretty ponies, they shaped cookies using Philip's flavorful recipe. Best of all, putting the confection together doesn't require any unusual materials—just wood dowels, ribbon and other easy-to-find supplies.
Edith Holliday shares the secret behind her cute cupcakes. "My mother taught me this simple way to fill cupcakes with fruit jelly," shares the Flushing, Michigan baker. Take these tender treats to your next get-together and watch faces light up after just one bite.
You only need a few baking staples to throw together these gooey delights. Boxed cake mix and a can of frosting make them fast, but caramel, walnuts and chocolate chips tucked inside make them memorable. We like them with ice cream. —Bev Spain, Belleville, Ohio
This recipe was given to me by my mother, and I've since handed it down to my daughters. The moist cupcakes are topped with frosting that comes together in no time. And if you'd like even more banana taste, stir some mashed banana into it. —Wanda Thole, Leonard, Minnesota
