About 5 years ago, Albertsons and Betty Crocker did a very sneaky thing to me. They ran a special on Warm Delights for about $.69/big package. It was a bargain and I bought 10 for my boys to make when they wanted to "cook." Little did I know that that little treat would result in years of teasing for more. Never again have I seen them so cheap, so, frankly, never again have I bought them. I endured the teasing until in desperation, I went searching for a homemade version.
For the price of one cake mix (about a $1 or less) and a few extras (like 1 tsp of hot fudge sauce or jam or caramel sauce),my kids can whip up anywhere from 6 to 8 warm delights. Oh, how I love to save money!!!
1/4 cup cake mix (any flavor)
1/8 cup water
1-2 tsp filling of your choice: caramel, hot fudge, strawberry jam, coconut, marshmallow, nuts, peanut butter, choc chips, your imagination can go wild here.
In microwave safe cereal sized bowl, stir water into cake mix. Dollop on the filling. Microwave for 1 minute. (time may differ with each microwave...start low so you don't burn it). Filling will be HOT, so let sit 3 minutes before eating. Here we have chocolate cake with hot fudge and strawberry filling and yellow cake mix with caramel filling. The yellow one cooked too long (I cannot tell my teenager anything these days!), so it sort of exploded all over.
