Too Much Chocolate Cake
5 stars! Awesome cake and SOOO easy. Doesn't taste like it was from a box of cake mix and pudding mix and if I hadn't told anyone at the party how I made it everyone would have thought that it had been slaved over for HOURS! Every person that had cake commented on how good it was. I used the Satiny Chocolate Glaze as other reviewers suggested (from allrecipes). Since it's summer, I put the cake (covered) in the fridge in fear that it would just start melting once I put the glaze on, but since the glaze is made of chocolate chips it got very hard on top, so I had to let it sit out for about 20-30 minutes before serving. I don't think I'll put it in the fridge the next time I make it. Especially if it's not in the Summer. Other than that wouldn't do anything differently. Thinking about trying with different cake mixes and pudding flavors as others suggested. Wonderful recipe!

Fresh Strawberry-Oatmeal Cookies
They're ok. Mine ended up with a cake-like texture, which I typically like in a cookie. I have done a lot of baking, so I did take it upon myself to "tweak" the recipe as other reviewers were suggesting. I used 2 1/4 cups flour instead of 1 1/2 cups, I added 1/2 t salt, 1/2 t baking powder and eliminated the 1/4 cup milk (thinking that's why people were getting the "runny" consistency... I thought the milk was a little odd in there). I added 1/2 cup chocolate chips at the end too. I just realized that I missed that last 1/4 cup sugar when I wrote down the recipe, so I added some to the batter that I haven't cooked yet and I'm sure that'll make a difference in the flavor. Not sure I can even fairly rate them since I switched up the recipe so much though... ;o|

Cream Cheese Squares
HUGE HIT!!! I was a little nervous because they seemed to puff up quite a bit while cooking, but once I let them cool completely and cut them, they were fine. I only changed a couple things; I thought that a 1/2 cup of melted butter was a bit excessive, so I only ended up doing about 1/3. I also added some sugar free strawberry jam-I spread it even over the cream cheese filling-and it was the perfect amount of tart to go with the sweet. Will be making again for sure!
