Find and post recipes we twentysomethings have fou


I have made two things for a holiday party tomorrow, and I'm proud of myself, so I thought I would post the recipes here. It probably goes without saying that these are not particularly healthy recipes. If that is not allowed, I will delete the post.

Coconut Cake
Butter Cake Mix
2 (6 oz.) packages of frozen coconut
1 container Cool Whip
1 cup confectionary sugar
1 (8 oz.) container of sour cream

Prepare cake according to directions in two round layers. Cool cake completely. Mix remaining ingredients for icing. I've found that it helps to chill the icing for about an hour before putting it on the cake. Ice cake, then refrigerate.

People are absolutely crazy about this cake. I've baked from scratch before, but people are more enthusiastic about this cake. I always get asked for the recipe, and my coworkers (at a health club) pretty much demand that I make it.

Chunky Chicken Cheese Ball
1 (6 oz.) can of chicken (in water)
1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese
1 tablespoon pimento (chopped)
1 tablespoon celery (chopped)
1 tablespoon onion (grated)

Drain water from chicken. Combine ingredients and mix thoroughly. Put in dish and keep refrigerated until ready to use. Serve with crackers.

I just mixed the stuff together with my hands (which were clean). I've never made this before, but I let the dog lick it off my hands and he seemed pleased with it. Credit for both recipes goes to my grandmother. I've tried to put tags on this entry, but they aren't showing up.
