At every Relief Society function over the last 25+ years if my Mom likes a dish, dessert, or whatever is it happens to be she ask for the recipe. WOW! I have to tell you she has sure collected many of them. Many years ago she made a Mom's Cookbook for my sisters and myself...full of wonderful recipes, but my favorite section is desserts.....boy do I love a yummy treat! I thought I'd share some of my favorites with you.
CHOCOLATE GUNK CAKE by Helen DowDell
1 small pkg chocolate pudding and pie filling (not instant)
1 pkg chocolate cake mix, powder only (no eggs, oil, water, etc)
1 c chocolate chips
1/2 c nuts , if desired
cook the chocolate pudding according to the instructions. Let cool a few minutes, then stir in 1 chocolate cake powder mix. Mix well and spread in a 9x13 greased and floured cake pan. Top with chocolate chips and nuts. Bake @ 350* for 30 minutes.
WAFFLE IRON COOKIES
1/2 c melted margarine
1 c flour
3/4 c sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 Tablespoons cocoa (can use Carob powder equal amounts)
mix margarine, sugar, eggs and chocolate together. Then add flour and vanilla. Place a heaping spoonful onto a hot (sprayed with Pam) waffle iron. Let cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Lift off with fork cook and frost if desired, which I recommend. (can frosting works great)

In the microwave melt the white chocolate chips, just until soft. Stir well and take out of microwave. Add the toffee bits. Stir well. Spread evenly on a small cookie sheet with a lip or small 8x8 pan lined with foil. Refrigerate. When set, cut into small pieces.
