Description: I saw these delicious looking Chocolate Toffee Bars over at Cookies and Cups. My mother-in-law always made bar cookies instead of regular cookies for parties. She said that, in general, they held up better to vigorous handling and freezing.

Description: Bakerella published a wonderful article on making pudding cups, but what I really loved were the instructions on making Chocolate Cups Using Balloon Molds. This technique can be used again and again for all kinds of desserts. The chocolate cups can be used to serve candies, fruit salad (as long as it’s not too wet), ice cream and more.

I got this recipe from my daughter in law. The only change I made was to use bottled dressing instead of homemade. This salad is both incredibly easy and very delicious. As a bonus, Delicious 5 Layer Deli Salad looks fancy enough to serve while entertaining.
4 cups lettuce, shredded
4 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked, rinsed and drained
4 large slices deli (we used turkey pastrami)
honey mustard/Dijon salad dressing
Cut the deli into thin slices.
Place four plates on your work surface. On each plate layer one cup of salad, then 1/4 of the angel hair pasta, 1/4 of the deli slices (fanned out nicely), some dressing and a handful of croutons.
Make additional dressing available.
That’s it! It’s so easy!

This recipe for Stuffed Deli Roll has been making the rounds for years. I received it from my daughter-in-law, and I think she received it from a friend. Taste this delicious treat, and you’ll be passing the recipe on to friends of yours!
frozen puff pastry dough, defrosted
leftover deli (the amount you need will be determined by the size of your dough)
spicy duck sauce
good quality mustard
non-stick cooking spray (I used Pam)
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup) and lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Spray a clean work surface with non-stick cooking spray. Unroll the puff pastry dough onto the work surface.
Spray a rolling pin or sturdy glass with additional cooking spray and roll out the puff pastry till it’s about 1.5 times the original size.
Combine the mustard and mayonnaise is a small bowl and spread a generous layer onto the entire surface of the dough.
Top the mustard/mayo sauce with a single layer or deli. Allow a one inch margin around the edges of the dough.
Roll the pastry up carefully. Top with a generous coating of the spicy duck sauce.
Carefully place the Stuffed Deli Roll onto the baking pan, cutting in half to fit, if needed.
Bake till medium browned.
Cut into one inch slices and serve.
Note: You may need the help of another person with rolling the puff pastry up evenly and placing it on the cooking sheet.

Description : The instructions for these Ladybird Cupcakes call for sugar paste and royal icing. I believe you could make cupcakes 90% as attractive, just by using regular icing piped in the same design.
