    here's a couple of my favorite treats:

    Chocolate chip cookies
    the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever found.

    1. Beat 2/3 cup melted butter,
    2 Cups lightly packed brown sugar,
    2 Eggs,
    2 Tbsp Hot water Mix well.
    2. Stir in 2 2/3 cups all purpose flour,
    1 tsp baking powder,
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 package (300g) Milk chocolate chips
    3. bake at 375f for 8-10 minutes.
    Makes about 5 dozen cookies

    - From the Chipits milk chocolate chips bag

    Peanut butter cups
    quite a lot of work, but it's worth it. tastes a lot like Reese peanut
    butter cups.
    1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
    4 tbsp grated paraffin wax (sounds gross but it wont work without it)

    1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
    3/4 cup icing (confectioner's) sugar
    2 tbsp graham cracker crumbs
    1 tbsp Milk

    Combine both chocolate chips and wax in a medium sauce pan on lowest heat. stir continually until melted. remove the pan to hot pad. divide into 2
    equal portions. return 1 portion to the pan. measure 2 tsp of the chocolate mixture into foil or paper baking cups. use the back of a small spoon to push the cocolate up the sides of the baking cup about a 1/4 inch (0.5 cm) . repeat for 24 cups until all of the 1st portion of the chocolate mixture. place cups in refrigerator until hard.

    Combine the remaining 3 ingredients in a bowl. mix well. divide in half. roll each half into a rope. cut each rope into enough peices so that the total equals the number of baking cups prepared. press each peice to fit over the chocolate in the paper cup. chill 10 minutes. warm the remaining chocolate chip mixture. spoon 2 tsp over the top of eadh cup. chill.
    Makes 24 chocolates
    - Recipe by Jean Pare in a Companys Coming book.

    Even if i follow the recipes carfully, I still have problems cooking/ baking. for example the last time I atempted making cookies I ended up accidentally catching a paper towel under the pan, dropping it in the oven, and starting a fire in there AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! The recipes are good, I guess im just a chronic bad cook.

    I'm not sure if you're a chronic bad cook, but you are certainly evil! I'd like to lose about 10 pounds, and you submit something like that. Thanks for submitting. I'm pretty sure I can add to this category (one of my favorites) if I do a little research.

      That's absolutly sinful! As in sinfully delicious. You definately found my vice. Chocolate and lots of sugar.

        Yummy, yummy. I wish I had some cookies to eat right now. As for the peanut butter cups recipe, the paraffin wax does sound a bit odd. I just don’t know if I would be brave enough to try that one, but I do love peanut butter cups so I may just have to try it!

          I was definitely surprised about the parrafin wax, until someboay explained it to me. apparently without the wax the chocolate won't harden right and your food will melt (there's wax in all chocolate bars that you'd buy in a store).

            You're right David. All those chocolates with poured forms like bon bons and candy bars have some parafin in them to keep thier form and prevent melting as soon as you touch them. So be brave T, it's really not odd.

              Outback's Alice Springs Chicken
              by raniday
              This is one of my favorites, tastes like you went to lots of trouble, but it's very easy. I've had it at Outback restaurant, and it's maybe slightly better there but not much. I found it at a site called CopyCat Recipes. They have lots of your favorite restaurant recipes.
