On Saturday, I went to the local thrift shop and found these darling candle holders for the holidays...we're not sure if our holiday things will be out of storage by then, so thought I'd pick up a few things..the thrift shop is getting all decked out ..it looks festive already and this is just the first of November....these two were only $3.00 total so they fell within my frugal budget....I plan on going back when the store is completely done.
Here is the recipe.
Quick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
2 packages devils food cake mix
1 cup vegetable oil
1 package softened cream cheese (8 oz)
1/4 c. butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mixes, oil and eggs, mix well. Roll into 1" balls or the size of a walnut.
Place 2" apart on a cooky sheet and bake about 8-10 minutes. Do not flatten. Bake at 350. Cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pan..please excused my scratch up cooky sheet, its an old and reliable one...nothing ever sticks to it..we got it at Sears about 25 years ago.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add sugar and vanilla, beat until smooth.Spread on bottom half of the cookies and put together...the guys absolutely adore these and my son's fiance is crazy about them too.
I thought I'd start November with this funny Thanksgiving video...we will have several guests..so I'll be preparing early..its only 3 weeks away.
