Black Forest Cake
1 box devils food cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
1 tub cool whip (or comparable)
1 jar marichino cherries
Prepare cake mix in accordance to package directions. Divide the cake mix into two separately greased cake pans or flan pans. Bake in accordace to the package directions. Allow to cool and remove from pans. Spead the cherry pie filling over the top of one of the cakes. Place the second cake on top of the first. Cover both layers with the cool whip. Place 4 equally spaced dollops of whipped cream around the edges of the cake. Top the dollops with a cherry.
A friend made this at Thanksgiving and it was so GOOOD!
Honey Bun Cake
Mix together and pour into a greased 13x15 pan. You can use a 9x13 pan also but you'll have to increase the cooking time as needed.
Sprinkle over the cake and then swirl through with a fork until most of the cake mix has cinnamon mixture. BAKE at 350 degrees until done--about 40 min.
Mix together and pour over cake while it is still hot. It's better if you pour over the cake as soon as it's done. The glaze will sink into the cake and make it more moist if you put it on the hot cake.
This was my grandmother's recipe. She always made these at Christmastime.
Cream Cheese Kolacky (koh-LAH-chee)
Cream butter and cream cheese together. Sift together dry ingredients and blend into butter mixture. Add beaten eggs and stir until well blended. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Roll out dough on floured surface. (Sprinkle a little sugar on working surface as well.) Cut dough into squares or rounds. Place a dollop of filling in center of shape, and bring two opposite sides of dough to meet over filling/center. Pinch/press down. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes. May sprinkle cooled cookies with powdered sugar for finishing touch.

Here's a little different version of the Cracker Candy. I made these for a party last week and everyone liked them. They make a huge panful, so I only took about 1/3. The rest that were left here didn't last long. I love them so much I almost make myself sick eating them.
Soda Cracker Candy
35-40 Saltine crackers
1 C. butter or margarine
1 C. packed brown sugar
1 pkg. (about 2 C.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 C. coarsely chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 15x10x1" pan with foil and then coat with nonstick cooking spray Place crackers in rows on foil.
In saucepan, melt butter; add brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Pour over crackers and spread until completely covered.
Bake for 5 minutes (crackers will float a little). Remove from oven.
Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts over crackers. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes, until chocolate is melted.
Remove from oven and using a greased spatula, press nuts into the chocolate. Cut into squares while warm. Cool completely and remove from foil.
Yields about 5 dozen
