These are sooo good and sooo easy!
Mom's Toffee Bars
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter softened
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag chocolate chips
*Preheat oven 350
*Crumble first four ingredients in a bowl. Press into a medium sized (10x15 or 8x12) cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden.
*Sprinkle chocolate chips on while still hot. Wait a bit until chocolate chips start to melt then smear them evenly across top.
*Cut while still slightly warm.
You can also use butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips but semi-sweet is my personal favorite!
These are great as soon as they have cooled but even better a couple days later!

Here's a very fattening, but good recipe I adapted from a couple of different sources-
No Bake Key Lime Cheesecake Pie
1 can sweetened condensed milk (not concentrated)
1/2 to 3/4 cup lime juice--better juice=better flavor
2 pgks 8 oz cream cheese
1 prepackaged pie shell--graham cracker or nilla wafer
Beat room temperature cream cheese until soft and creamy Add condensed milk until smooth. Beat in lime juice slowly.
Spoon into pie shell. Chill 1-2 hours until set.
Top with whipped cream if desired.
Here's a very easy, melt-in-your-mouth cookie - If you have kids that like to help bake, they will really enjoy this one (not too messy - so you'll like it too!).

I learned this years ago in Girl Scouts. We still make it about once a month.
1/2 box dry cake mix (your choice flavor)
1 can pie filling (your choice flavor)
1 stick butter (melted)
Heat oven to 375. Place pie filling in bottom of any oven safe dish at least 9 inches round. Sprinkle cake mix on top to form a "crust". Pat down slightly. Pour butter on top evenly. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar if you want. Now place in oven and until crust is brown and crispy. Depending on type of fruit can take from 20-45 minutes. Serve warm/hot with vanilla ice cream.
Thanks, Betsy! I'd forgotten about Cheater's Cobbler!
Here's a slightly less-sweet version:
Dump fruit (and about half the syrup) into baking dish.
I've never tried it, but I'll bet the cake mix could easily replace the bisquit mix and sugar here - just use what you have!

Snickers Bar Brownie Cake

3/4 c Margarine, melted
3/4 c Margarine, melted
2/3 c Sweetened Condensed Milk

Mix cake mix with melted margarine and condensed milk, spread out 1/2 of the mixture into a 9x13″ pan. Bake at 350° F for 10 minutes.
Slice candy bars into little slices. Lay these on top of the baked crust. With the remaining batter-crumble it on top of the candy bars. It will have a crumbly texture. No need to spread it on top to make it smooth. Put it back into the oven and bake it at 350° F for 20 minutes.

Thanks for the posting the Cheater's Cobbler recipes, Betsy B. & Anna B.! My family always called it "Dump Cake" because all of the ingredients were dumped into the cake pan. We frequently used pineapple and coconut, and upgraded the name to Pina Colada Dump Cake... Thanks for the memories!
Triple Layer Cookie Bars
* 1/2 cup margarine or butter
* 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
* 1 (7oz.) package flaked coconut (2 2/3 cups)
* 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (Not evaporated milk)
* 1 (12 oz.) bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350* (325* for glass pan) In 13x9x2 inch baking pan, melt butter/margarine in oven
Sprinkle Graham cracker crumbs evenly over melted butter. Top evenly with the coconut
then sweetened condensed milk.
Baked for 25 minutes or till lightly browned
While that is cooking:
In a small sauce pan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter
spread evenly over hot coconut. cool 30 minutes, then chill. Cut into bars.
Store cookie bars loosely covered at room temperature.
I cut the bars into 1 inche squares, they are very rich and a big hit at Christmas time.

I work for a doctor's office and one of our patients brought in this cake during the holidays. This has become the office favorite.
Chocolate Kahlua Cake
1 pks chocolate cake mix - dry
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 10-in bundt pan.
Combine chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, canola oil and Kahlua in large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in chocolat chips. Pour into pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool for 10-15 minutes before inverting pan onto cake plate.
This is best served warm. Just heat in microwave for a few seconds.
This is great for parties. It tastes yummy!! Serve with sliced fruit (apples, bananas and strawberries are great).
Hawaiian Fruit Dip - From Pampered Chef
Combine sour cream, milk and pudding in a small mixing bowl; blend until smooth. Add pineapple and coconut; mix thoroughly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. Makes 2-1/2 cups.
My SIL showed me how to do this. Don't have a name for it. They are really good! I guess it would be a cookie like thingie, lol.
Ritz crackers, smooth peanut butter, almond bark and crisco.
Melt your almond bark (vanilla or chocolate whichever you prefer. I always use the vanilla one) with about a tablespoon of crisco in a pot on top of stove or you can also microwave it.
Spread peanut butter between 2 ritz crackers. Dip in melted almond bark.
I place mine on wax paper after I dip them for the bark to harden.
This is my Mom's Fudge recipe & it is so good! My kids ask for it all the time and there's none left the next day.

Here's a fav recipe that I LOVED when I was growing up:
Crescent Cheese Bars
2 pkgs Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
2 8-oz. pkgs of cream cheese (leave it outside of the fridge for one hour to soften)
1 egg, separated
1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking dish with margarine. (A 9 in. x 13 in. dish works fine.) Spread 1 pkg of crescent rolls onto bottom of dish. In a bowl, mix cream cheese, egg yolk, 1 cup sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Pour mixture onto the crescent rolls in the dish. Spread the 2nd pkg of the crescent rolls onto cream cheese mix in dish. In a separate bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Spread the egg white onto the crescent rolls in the dish and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and walnuts. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or more. Check after 30 minutes--insert a toothpick into center. If the toothpick comes out clean, it's done. Chill and cut into squares.
