I begged my co-worker for the recipe for her brownies and she surprised me by telling me they were box brownies! Here's the secret: 1 box Ghirardelli brownie mix, 3 Symphony chocolate bars. Put 1/2 of the brownie mix in 8x8 pan, lay the chocolate bars across and then top with the remaining half of the brownie batter. Bake according to the directions. Best brownies ever!

The cookies I get requested to make the most are chewy chocolate gingerbread cookies from the Martha Stewart website


My favorite recipe from Toll House, not really a cookie but boy are they good, are the Buckeyes.


My grandmother made these every Christmas growing up and they were a special treat at her house during the holidays.
