Just what I like...fast sweets!!! Are there any more?
I have a very difficult time deciphering the line between boredom and hunger.
All three sound wonderful!

~~The most important things in life aren't things!~~
thanks for the replies, I have been going thru my old Home Cooking magazines,
looking for some more, so far haven't found any. but I have several years to look thru so maybe I will be able to post some. I have a family reunion tomorrow so won't be able to do any searching.
I've got a book somewhere in storage called "A Man, A Can & A Microwave" and it was full of recipes for non cooking men that only required them to open a few ingredients and mix and microwave. There were some good recipes in that book. Wish I had it now.
I'll look around and see what I can find for sweet treats.
Place dry cake mix and dry pudding mix into a large bowl and blend well
with a whisk. This will be about 4 to 4 1/2 cups of dry mix and will
make 8 coffee cup cake mixes.
Make glaze mix: in a medium bowl, combine confectioners sugar with
powdered flavoring mix. Divide into 8 small plastic bags and close bag
with a twist tie. Attach each glaze mix to the cake mix bags with a
twist tie. Place one of each bag into each cup.
Attach the following instructions to each cup:
Generously spray inside of cup with cooking spray. Empty contents of
cake mix packet in cup. Add 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon
water to dry mix. Mix 15 seconds, carefully mixing in all dry mix.
Microwave on full power for 2 minutes. While cake is cooking, place
ingredients from Glaze mix into a very small container and add 1 1/2
teaspoon water. Mix well. When cake is done, pour glaze over cake in
cup. Enjoy while warm.
Makes 8 servings
Cut mixture into 48 squares. Roll each square into a ball and place on
wax paper. Roll half in unsweetened cocoa and half in powdered sugar.
