Old Recipes

Hope these aren't repeats.  Here are some recipes I was cleaning out of an old board I was on.

Mint Chocolate Cookie Crunch

1 bag mint chocolate chips (or, Andes Mint Chips)
2 1/2 bags (or 5.5 C) dark chocolate chips
1 pkg. Oreo cookies
4 C Rice Krispies

melt the chocolate chips (and mint chips) until just melted.
Then, finely crumble the Oreo cookies. We use a blender/food processor to do this, and purposefully leave a few larger random pieces. Combine the Oreo, Rice Krispies and melted chocolates in a large bowl. Stir until well coated. Using a spoon or an ice cream scooper, create cookies on top of waxed or parchment paper. Allow cookies to harden up on the counter for a few hours before eating. This recipe makes 124 cookies! They are great to give as gifts, if you're willing to share :)
You can also easily cut the recipe in half. Use 1/2 a bag of Andes mints, 1 (12oz) bag of chocolate chips, 2 C Rice Krispies and a half a package of Oreos.
 Here's an easy slow cooker recipe.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cans of pinto beans
2 cans of Mexican diced tomatoes (undrained)
2 Tbs of fajita seasoning
1-2 Tbs of canola oil

Brown chicken in oil in non-stick skillet. While chicken is browning, put pinto beans in slow cooker. When chicken is browned, place in slow cooker. Pour tomatoes onto chicken and then sprinkle fajita seasoning on top. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Serve with brown rice, cheese and sour cream.
German Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

1 package German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 stick butter
2 eggs
1 tub Coconut Pecan Frosting

Melt butter in large bowl. Mix in cake mix and eggs. Roll in to 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Once cool, place a good layer of frosting between two similar sized cookies.
Blueberry Craisin Oatmeal Cookies

Pouch of Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix
1/2 stick butter
1 tbsp water
1 egg
1/2 c. dried blueberries
1/2 c. dried cranberries

You can use any combination of dried fruit really, but I LOVE the dried blueberries. Unfortunately, they are rather expensive, which is why I mix them with less expensive cranberries. Raisins would work too. Mix up the pouch mix with the butter, water and egg. It will be VERY stiff. I recommend a fork (my room mate/neighbor uses her hands). Add dried fruit and mix well. Scoop by rounded teaspoons onto sheet and bake according to pouch directions.
Like I said. Super easy. Super good. And kinda frugal too! (Depends on the fruit you use! :)
Garlic Bundt Bread

3 cans of biscuits
1 stick of butter
2 - 3 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese

Melt the butter. Add garlic and Italian Seasoning. Line the bundt pan with the biscuits standing on their side. All the way around. Then pour the butter mixture over them. Bake at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes, until biscuits are done. Flip onto a plate and top with grated parmesan cheese. Pull apart to serve.
 Bacon Ranch Crockpot Chicken

4 - 6 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
1 -2 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing mix
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
4 boneless skinless chicken breast
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 - 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Place chicken in the crock pot, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix the soup, sour cream, and ranch dressing mix together. Stir in the garlic and bacon. Pour over chicken. Cook 4 - 6 hours on high or until chicken is cooked through. At the last 15 to 20 minutes before serving, top with grated cheddar cheese.
