The Frugal Musician’s back of the box, bag, under the label recipes


Ok this one was actually on the side of the box!

We have dessert every night at our house. I know that sounds a little extravagant but dessert is usually a piece of sheet cake with icing. It costs approximately $2.00 to make this. I cut the cake into 12 servings so it last a good while. Another of our fav desserts is chocolate chip pancakes, but I only make these in the winter.  Summer is great for cook and serve puddings. I make chocolate or vanilla cook and serve in the microwave. I buy the Kroger brand for fifty cents a box. I usually top the pudding with left over cake or brownies or maybe bananas and whipped topping. I serve pudding in my grandma’s cut glass pieces and it makes a lovely end to a nice meal.

Today dawned cloudy and cool here in VA so I decided to cook for the week, and that included making a nice chocolate sheet cake. I discovered this recipe on the side of the cake mix box.

This sounds so good and Walgreen has BOGOF Starbucks Icecream and I have COUPONS. So you know what we’ll be having for dessert next week!

Chilly Cookie Sandwiches

1 pkg Pilllsbury Moist Supreme Chocolate Premium Cake Mix

1/3 cup oil

2 eggs

1 pint ice cream softened

Prepare cake mix and drop dough by rounded tablespoon fulls about 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets to make 22 cookies. Bake at 375 7-9 minutes until puffed and almost no indentation remains when touched. Cool 1 minute, remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.

Place half of the cookies bottom side up and top with a scoop of ice cream. Cover with remaining cookie, bottom side down. Press together to flatten. Roll edges of each sandwich in sprinkles and wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze at least two hours or over night.
