I'm a slacker....

But I have an excuse... I have been doing a few projects, and I have quite a few blogs brewing in my head, but I just haven't been posting! We are in the process of moving and thus we are living out of boxes, literally. Hopefully, by next week we will be in a rental and will be able to unpack and unload for a while. Thus, I will be able to resume with my projects and blogging ;)

I haven't been in a baking mood much this year. Maybe it's because all my baking tools are boxed up. I don't know, so what baking I have done this year has been really simple.
While I was at the store I ran across Andes mints chipped up into tiny pieces! These are my hubby's favorite. So I thought they would be delicious in some brownies.
I mixed the brownies according to package directions and sprinkled some mints into the mix, stirred it up, and put it in the oven. I added some more mints on top of the brownies after they had cooled. Obviously, I didn't think it through, b/c they mints didn't stay in place. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will add the mints during the last few minutes of cooking, or right when I take them out, that way they will be melted into the top. These are so yummy! I only used about half the bag, so I will be making them again very soon!
Yes, there's one missing. I couldn't resist!
There is another dessert that I made recently, but unfortunately I don't have pictures =( But it is very easy. It is a Raspberry Chocolate Cake. I used Devil's Food Cake mix. Cook it according to directions making two or more layers. Let the cake cool completely. On the bottom layer, spread raspberry jam generously on top; when you think there is enough, add a little more. Then place the top layer and spread some more jam on top of it. Spread the frosting on top and the sides and your done! The raspberry jam adds a very delightful flavor to the rich chocolate. You can use store bought frosting or make your on, whichever you prefer! I hope you enjoy! Maybe I will get in the Christmas baking mood soon!
