1 can Pillsbury Frosting Mix (or your favorite brand)

Melt chips in a saucepan over very low heat or in the microwave 1-2 minutes til shiny, then stirring until smooth. Combine with frosting. At this point you can add in whatever extras you like such as nuts, candied fruit, marshmallows, cookie pieces, M & M's etc)
Pour into a 8 or 9 inch square pan which has been lined with foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into 36 pieces.

Here are some ideas:
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 can of Coconut Pecan frosting.

1 package of white chips, 1 can of Vanilla frosting, 1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring. After candy is poured into pan, drop several drops of red food coloring on to surface and swirl with a knife. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy, pressing in slightly.

1 package of white chips, 1 can Cherry frosting, 1/2-3/4 cups chopped candied cherries, and 1/2-3/4 cups blanched, slivered almonds.

1 package white chips, 1 can Lemon frosting, 1/2-3/4 cups chopped blanched almonds or macadamia nuts, 1/2 cup flaked coconut.

1tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 eggs
Sauté the mushrooms, celery, and onions in butter until tender. In a large bowl toss the bread cubes with the seasonings. Add the mushrooms mixture. In a measuring cup drain the mushrooms and add water to equal 14 oz. Add 1 Tbsp. chicken bouillon. Pour over the bread mixture and toss well. Put into a slow cooker and cook on low for 4-5 hours.
You can use your slow cooker to keep mashed potatoes warm too.

Oreo Marshmallow Brownies

Bookmark and Share
  The following recipe came from
  Check out her blog.  She has some really good stuff on it.
Oreo Marshallow brownies

These were very rich and very yummy. I had seen this recipe and bought the chocolate marshmallows thinking this was what the recipe called for. It called for something else, but I used what I bought and everyone liked these. They are gooey, so you will need to eat them with a fork! Warm, is the preferred way!

Oreo Marshmallow Brownies                                   

1 brownie mix

16 oreos, broken in quarters

1 c. marshmallow fluff

1 bag Kraft jet puffed chocolate covered mallow bites, frozen(we used choc mallows--see picture)

4 crushed oreos

Preheat oven to 350*. Mix up brownie mix using the 2 egg directions. Spread 1/2 the batter in greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Place quartered oreos on top of the batter. Drop fluff by spoonfuls on top of oreos. Toss half the chocolate covered marshmallows on the batter. Drop spoonfuls of the rest of the brownie batter on top and carefully spread it out. It is OK if the marshmallow isn't covered all the way. Sprinkle the top with the crushed oreo crumbs and the rest of the chocolate covered marshmallows. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool and consume!
