I made this quick and easy dessert last Wednesday before the nor'easter blew on in. I substituted strawberry pie filling for the cherry pie filling, just because it's what I had on had. I never use store bought cake mixes to make straight up cakes or cupcakes. I like to buy them when they are on sale 10 for $10 or less and use them to make other types of desserts. There are so many recipes out there that use the mixes as a base. Try different types of cakes and fillings - soo yummy.
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 eggs
- 181/4 ozs cake mix (white)
- 21 ozs cherry pie filling
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 11/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 tbsps milk
- 1 dash vegetable oil
A few of you asked about my chocolate covered pretzels. I use Tom Sturgis pretzels and Merken's dark chocolate. I melt the chocolate in the microwave, throw the pretzels into the bowl by the handful, then pull them out with tongs placing them on parchment paper to cool. I immediately sprinkle them with multi-color non-parerils. I'm lucky that I can get the Merken's chocolate in our market. It is the best tasting and melting chocolate (in my opinion), and it comes in dark, milk and white. You can also find it on line.
Have you ever made homemade candy?
