Shortcuts are Allowed

You have unexpected guests and you need a quick dessert.  Make it your own with a little help from a cookie, brownie or cake mix.

Use a brownie mix and add mini chocolate chips to the batter (who doesn’t like more chocolate!) top with whipping cream and add some crumbled oreos, drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce, add a sprig of mint.  Be creative to make it your own!

I made a box cupcake mix with a cream filling.  My 5 year old granddaughter even got in the act and told me to put a mini oreo inside for a double surprise.  I also put mini oreos in the middle of a store-bought chocolate chip cookie mix fora added chocolate crunch!

It doesn’t have to be with just desserts.  I dress up my salads with store-bought italian dressing by adding some mint and lemon juice for a fresh tangy taste!

We all need a little help now and then, but by adding your own special touches you can call it yours!
