Sunday night my mom came over and helped the kids make wee cakes in a mug. I was going to make one too but instead I was sitting on my butt watching the Oscars. I was just too lazy and tired to move basically! I did take pics though and want to try this out for myself sometime. I think I'd add more chocolate to it with whipped cream and sprinkles on top. I'm salivating already!
If you can't wait for the recipe click on mom and then on her label "just for fun". By the way, they call this cake dangerous because you're only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake. Too easy to make and too easy to eat! Can you see the calories adding up??
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix ingredients until combined.
Drop spoonfuls of cookie batter onto baking sheet about two inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
In a mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and vanilla.
Gradually add sugar and mix until smooth.
Note: For some reason I had a lot of leftover frosting. I might have to cook up some cupcakes and use the rest in the middle!

These are the cookie favor baskets I made for a friends baby shower.
I individually wrapped each in a cookie bag with a tiny baby favor and pink ribbon.

1 tube Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough
14 or more Pepperoni slices, cut with mini heart cookie cutter
Assorted grated cheese
I accidentally threw out the directions to this. Oopsi! So just follow the directions on the pizza dough package. I rolled out the dough and tried to shape it into a heart shape. Then I topped it with sauce, cheese and pepperoni. I forgot to buy any mozzerella so I used a little cheddar, swiss and colby jack. It was an interesting combo but it actually tasted great!
I was going to put the recipe on here but all I did was use the Bisquick recipe. The only difference is that I substituted 1/2 cup of applesauce for the eggs. Plus of course I added mini heart sprinkles on top of the finished pancake. Substituting applesauce for eggs seems to work pretty good for Carlee so she can still enjoy her pancakes allergy free.
Here's little miss bedhead wanting me to cut up her pancake for her. So spoiled!
Of course I had to have black hearts!
These cookies represent a heart gone bad, cupid with no head, and obviously a stupid cupid heart. Eric thought these were funny but there was a downside to my fun. Now Collin knows how to spell stupid. What's a mom to do?
