Chocolate Paradise

Whether it's this delicious little chocolate brown hat created by my dear auntie.... or the scrumptious bars that just came out of my oven, chocolate reigns supreme (as they say in Kitchen Stadium).... Allez Cuisine??? Is that the rest of it?? Today was a wild blast of student flurry match the snow pelting outside. We had called off yesterday a bit prematurely since temps never really slid below freezing despite the forecast. So today, come you know what or high water we went. I actually needed a day with my kiddos since I'd been gone. Tomorrow (actually later today) is parent teacher conferences for mid term. Think of me from 1 until 6.... I actually enjoy them... I have taught in this same system since 1975... so most of the parents I had as students.... It makes me feel so grounded (no, not old... just grounded... haha...)

German Chocolate Bars (actually another variation of Ooey Gooey Cakes)

Mix together:
2 eggs
1 pkg. German Chocolate cake mix
1 stick butter

Pat into 9 x 13 pan.

Sprinkle over top of this:
1/2 c. toasted cocoanut
1/2 c. toasted pecans
1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Top layer: Mix together

1 stick melted butter
1 pkg. 8 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla

Spread over top and bake at 350 until lightly brown (about 50 minutes).

Let cool and YUM-O

Have a delicious day...

Oh my goodness. And in this house I am the only one who likes coconut...does that mean I should make it and eat it all myself or make it when we have company...hmmm...

Hope your parent teacher conferences go is nice to be "grounded"!
