My daughter decided she loves red velvet, so I thought we'd make a recipe using red velvet for a Valentine treat. I sent them for a few days in the kids' lunch boxes, evidently they caught the eye of the staff. The next time I volunteered at the school, some of the staff commented on how good they looked. lol.
Red Velvet Cake Mix
Make cupcakes using directions/ingredients on box.
1/2 cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
milk, as needed
4 cups powdered sugar, approx.
10 crushed oreos
Cream together butter and cream cheese. Slowly add powdered sugar. If needed add a tiny bit of milk. Fold in crushed oreos. Pipe onto cupcakes. I topped the cupcakes with oreos I cut in half, a full oreo woud also work. Maybe even the mini ones....
I remember as a teenager and early college years, eating creamy chicken noodle soup...canned from Campbells. I loved the creamy goodness of the soup and it was perfect on a cold day...fast forward a few years and I'm no longer buying it in a small can, but making it with fresh veggies and chicken that I cooked up. I did cheat and use a couple of cans of cream of chicken this go round, but I expect to make the cream of chicken sauce from scratch in the future and update the recipe then.
*John does not like chicken noodle soup, but he does like Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup, giving it an "8".
2 chicken breasts 5 cups chicken broth 1 C chopped carrots 1 C chopped celery
1 C potatoes, diced ½ C chopped onion 2 cans cream of chicken soup 1/4 cup milk 8-12 oz uncooked egg noodles (homestyle) Salt and pepper to taste
then dice chicken. Heat broth, then add carrots, celery, potatoes,
onions, and noodles. Simmer until veggies and noodles are tender. Add
cream of chicken soup, milk, salt, pepper and shredded chicken. Simmer
until heated through and ready to serve.
This recipe came from the back of the container of mallow bits we picked up at the store last week. They tasted like hot chocolate in cookie form, serve warm with a cold glass of milk. A perfect cookie for the blah January weather.

3 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup powdered hot chocolate mix (don’t use sugar free)
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mallow bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add in eggs and vanilla and stir until combined
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, hot chocolate mix, baking soda and baking powder.
Add in flour mixture to butter mixture until well combined.
Fold in mallow bits and chocolate chips.
