Lorin Cook Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

The fabulous Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creations, mixed with a hint of peppermint flavored Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake makes a great combination at any event. The tie dye colors really pop when paired with the Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting. Jazz it up by plating it on a "pillow" of cotton candy to intensify the effect!! It's a real BLAST of flavor!!

Tips

Soft & Chewy Cookies

Soft & Chewy Cookies

If you over bake, your cookies will dry out. Try baking your next batch for one or two minutes less. Use an oven thermometer to check your oven temperature. Or, maybe you over-mixed the dough? Remember to mix until just combined.


Brownie/Peanut Butter Surprise

Brownie/Peanut Butter Surprise

I used a 12-cup muffin pan, lightly greased to bake one box mix of Chewy Fudge Brownies and dropped a teaspoon of peanut butter in each cup filled with 2/3 of the brownie mix. Then, topped off the peanut butter with the remaining brownie mix. Everyone of my neighbors that I gave one to loved them. Myself...its hard not to eat one BEFORE dinner!
