Celebration Monday treats

Fudge topped devil dogs!

This could not be just any great for THIS victory Monday. The Buffalo Bills are back in the AFC Championship game for the first time since 1993. So this calls for something spectacular. Rob asked what I was planning (despite having 2 treats in the freezer bc I forgot to bring them in to work). I told him to pick something, so he chose devil dogs with fudge topping. Done. These use a cake mix. I added baking cocoa to make them extra chocolatey, but you can sub in 1/2 cup flour if you prefer.

  • Devil dog cake ingredients
  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa (or flour)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 eggs

Directions – preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. In a bowl, combine cake mix, cocoa, water, oil and eggs. Scoop out 1/4 cup batter and place on sheet. Spread into a rectangle. Bake 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely.

  • Filling ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, soft
  • 1 1/2 cups fluff
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • Heavy cream or milk

Directions – cream butter and fluff. Slowly add powdered sugar. Add enough milk or cream to get the consistency you want. Spread between 2 devil dogs. set aside

  • Fudge frosting ingredients
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions – over low -medium heat, bring butter, evaporated milk, and sugar to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add chips. Stir until melted. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Spoon over devil dogs. Store in covered container.

Go Bills!

  1. As Dick Enberg used to say, “Oh, MY!!” I am going to steal that fudge frosting recipe immediately, as I have a great big banana-walnut bread that I baked in a Bundt pan that would seriously benefit from it – plus I have a small jar of evaporated milk left over from Xmas fudge-making that is burning a hole in my fridge. Score!
    Now, on to business: next weekend is about as good as it gets, football-wise, both in the NFC and AFC. You know that Aaron Rodgers is curled up in a big leather chair right now, sipping a 20-year-old single-malt Scotch, watching this Saints/Bucs game and sizing up his next victim, and chuckling in that evil manner he has. *sigh* My hero!
    So, Bills v. Packers in Super Bowl LV?


    • Peg, let me,know how you like,it! I love frosted banana bread treats! I do love Aaron and hope he demolishes,the bucs!!!! I am,nervous for my Bills!
