Gees, I love it when you post these low calorie recipes!
Thanx a lot, Ginger.

RE: RECIPE: Texas Millionaires

Hey, Roselin, for a Texas Millionaire I will throw calorie caution to the wind! LOL
Thanks, Ginger! This looks like something fun to do with the nieces and nephews when they ask to bake with Aunt Marlen.

RE: RECIPE: Texas Millionaires

They do sound like something you can do with kids.
I will hace too have my niece bering her two girls over and can fix it sometime. One is 5 and the other one is two and my niece always says that the two is always beating up on the 5 year old.

LOL Ilene! I have a lot of nieces and nephews and what you say also holds true for me. It seems the younger kids win out over the older ones! LOLOL

RE: RECIPE: Texas Millionaires

My daughter and her friends used to make that when they were in JR high.....
I forget what they called them....They liked to melt the chocolate in the micro.....and occasionally would have it freeze.....then they could just eat the chocolate chips in a lump! LOL!
They invented many variations....some using Chinese noodles instead of the potatoes...or when I was out of nuts, whatever kind of cereal they could find......
Those little girls were big time into melting various chips and mixing stuff into it!
And today I have the second generation with me of melted chocolate chip candys!....but I think it'll be snickerdoodles again today!
