My favorite cake in the world is a Wegman’s Chocolate Cake. Wegman’s is an north east coast grocery chain. They have a chocolate cake that I have buckled in seat belt for a 10 hour drive half way across the country and had flown on a plane to me with family. I love this cake so much. This is the closest I have gotten to that cake. The chocolate flavor of the Hershey’s Cocoa is what makes it.
Quite a few times I have read of the Banana Pudding with Nilla Wafers in it. I love Chessman cookies. They are a Pepperidge Farm butter cookie with the shapes of chess pieces stamped on them. They are amazing! If you cannot find those near you a really delicious butter cookie would work just as well for a different flavor.
These little cookies are almost graham cracker in flavoring. They are super delicate so use a little melon baller to scoop your ice cream onto these yummy little cookies. A drizzle of chocolate syrup and caramel sauce make them seem extra decadent.
These were a staple in our home and most homes of my friends in the 70s and 80s. A simple cookie fully of peanut butter flavor was always a favorite. Use chunky peanut butter to add even more texture to the cookies!
A fresh lemony cake is always a hit after a meal. This one is a nice refreshing taste and not overly complicated recipe.
If you went to a public school in the late 70s or early 80s that served you lunch you may remember the big pans of frosted brownies. Brownie day was always the best day to buy lunch. These brownies are reminiscent of those chocolate frosted brownies.
