Rich...but so very delicious
If you are like us, you are going to all sorts of fall soirees, many of which require a dessert. What to do? Here is a dessert that is so good, but MUST be served frozen. If you do not freeze it, it is so rich it is overpowering. But...if you let it freeze and then thaw it just a bit...it is wonderful.
Delectable Chocolate Chip Cookie Freeze
First, you need to mix the dough for Grandma Patty’s Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies
3½ C whole wheat flour (make sure it is sifted or freshly and finely ground)
¾ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C butter, softened
1 C packed brown sugar
¾ C white sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1½ C semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream sugars and butter together. Add vanilla extract and eggs. Beat for three minutes. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Pat down into ungreased 13X9 pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until very light brown. Let cool for at least 20 minutes.
1 C caramel topping: spread over cooled, but slightly warm cookie. Let cool COMPLETELY.
Mix the following:
1 pkg. (3.4 oz) vanilla pudding
1 C cold milk
Mix vanilla pudding and milk until thickened. Fold in the following:
1 carton frozen whipped topping (thawed)
½ C toffee bits
Spread over cooled crust. Cover and freeze for about 3 ½ hours or until completely frozen.
4 oz. chocolate chips
3 T butter
Melt chocolate chips and butter together and drizzle over frozen dessert. Let frozen dessert sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes before serving so it is easier to cut. Serves 24.
Oh...my little Natural Tip for the Day: My little boy had an area that was quite inflamed from diaper rash...I put a little bit of lavender oil on the rash and within 15 minutes, the inflammation was drastically reduced and he was no longer in pain. There was a small amount of redness left, but it was almost completely gone. This is why they always advertise lavender on lotions!!! If you are interested, you can buy lavender oil at most health-food stores.
Sorry, just had to post this...the rash is COMPLETELY GONE this morning! I didn't reapply it or anything!!! I use a brand called Doterra. They are fabulous!!!!!!!!!
