Halloween Ooey Gooey Squares
When I need to make a quick treat, I turn to my most popular recipes of all times. My daughter was known for Ooey Gooey Squares from my KITCHEN 101 cookbook (easiest book) in high school and now I keep the ingredients in my pantry to make whenever I want a fast and fantastic treat. This year I got into the Halloween spirit and used red and yellow food coloring to make the filling orange. The chocolate chips gave the burst of black making it a fun Halloween treat!
Halloween Ooey Gooey goes Orange and Dark Chocolate
What treat can be better than orange and black. Use dark chocolate chips for better health and rich chocolate contrast in flavor to the sweet cream cheese filling! If your scared of cooking, this recipe will cure that fear!!
