Dive!® S'mores

You don't need a campfire, wire hangers or long
sticks to make this popular marshmallow, chocolate
and graham cracker dessert. Steven Spielberg's Dive!
chain of theme restaurants is the inspiration for this
week's clone recipe, pulled from the third TSR book,
Top Secret Restaurant Recipes (which includes other
clones from the chain as well). You need only four
ingredients, an oven with a broiler, and a serious
sweet tooth to put together this delicious dessert
previously enjoyed only camping trips and at beach parties.

2 whole graham crackers (4 sections, not separated)
two 1 1/2-ounce Hershey milk chocolate bars
16 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup, in squirt bottle

1. Preheat the broiler. Arrange the graham crackers side by side
 on an oven-safe plate (such as ceramic). You can also use a baking
2. Stack the milk chocolate bars side by side on top of the graham
3. Arrange the marshmallows on the chcocolate in 4 rows -- 4 across,
 4 down.
4. Broil the dessert on the middle rack for 1 to 3 minutes or until
 the marshmallows turn light brown on top.
5. Remove the dessert from the oven. If you used a baking sheet,
 carefully slide the dessert onto a serving plate. With the squirt
 bottle, immediately drizzle the chocolate syrup over the marshmallows
 in a sweeping back-and-forth motion. Drizzle the chocolate diagonally
 across the dessert one way, and then the other, creating a
cross-hatch pattern. Allow the chocolate to over-shoot the
dessert so that it creates a decorative pattern on the serving
plate as well.
Serves 2-4.


Dolly Madison® Zingers® (Devil's Food)

Former U.S. President James Madison's wife did not
create this baking company, despite the fact that her
name is on every carrot cake, crumb cake, and Zinger that
comes off the production line. It was instead company
founder Roy Nafziger's brainstorm to use the former first
lady's name, since she was notorious for throwing huge
shindigs featuring a fine selection of desserts and baked
goods. Nafziger said his company would create cakes "fine
enough to serve at the White House." While I don't expect
you'll be treated to a tray of Zingers on your next stay
in the Lincoln Bedroom, I will agree that these little
snack cakes are a tasty way to appease a sweet tooth.
You can craft a version at home by making little cake
pans out of aluminum foil that is wrapped around an
empty prescription pill bottle. The cake batter is easy,
since you just use any instant devil's food cake mix.
I like Duncan Hines, but you can use whatever you want.
As for the frosting, it may not come out as dark brown
as the original since the recipe here doesn't include brown
food coloring (caramel coloring). But the taste will be
right on. And I think President Clinton would agree that as
long as the sweet little treats taste good, appearance is secondary.

Duncan Hines devil's food cake mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup oil
3 large eggs

2 teaspoons hot water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups marshmallow creme (one 7-ounce jar)
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup Hershey's chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons shortening
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash salt
Tear off a bunch of foil pieces about this size. These will be your
 mini cake pans after folding two times and wrapping around a pill

Empty prescription medicine bottles are actually good for something.

Use a toothpick or skewer to dig three caverns in the cakes where the
 filling will live. Later you will cleverly hide these holes with

1. Prepare the cake batter following the directions on the box.
 If you use Duncan Hines brand, you will need 1 1/3 cups of water,
 1/2 cup of oil, and three eggs. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. To prepare the cake pans that will make cakes the size of Zingers,
 tear off 20 pieces of aluminum foil that are each about 8 inches
wide. Fold the foil in half and then in half once more so that you
have a rectangular piece of foil. Wrap this piece of foil around a
small prescription medicine bottle. Tuck in the ends and take the
bottle out, leaving the foil open at the top. This will form a little
 pan. Flatten the bottom so that the mini pan stands up straight.
 Place this into a baking pan and repeat with the remaining pieces
 of foil. When you have arranged all of the foil pans in a baking
pan, spray the inside of all the pans with non-stick cooking spray.
 Fill each little pan about halfway with cake batter. Bake cakes
for 15 to 17 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes
 out clean. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool
3. To make the filling, combine the hot water with the salt in a
small bowl and stir until the salt is dissolved. Let this mixture
4. Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and
vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high
 speed until fluffy. Add the salt mixture to the bowl and mix.
5. To make the chocolate frosting, combine all the frosting
ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer
until smooth.
6. To assemble your snack cakes first poke three holes with a
toothpick or skewer in the top of a cake and swirl around inside
 the holes making little caverns for your filling.
7. Use a pastry bag with a small tip to squeeze some filling into
 each hole. Careful not to overfill, or your cake will burst open.
 Sure, it's exciting, but this mess won't make for a good clone.
8. Once the cake is filled, use a butter knife to spread frosting
 on top of the cake over the holes. Drag a fork lengthwise over
the frosting making grooves  just like the real thing.

DoubleTree® Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies

When you check in at one of 240 hotels run by this U.S.
chain, you are handed a bag from a warming oven that
contains two soft and delicious chocolate chip cookies.
This is a tradition that began in the early 90s using a
recipe from a small bakery in Atlanta.  All of the
cookies - which  weigh in at an impressive two ounces
each - are baked fresh every day on the hotel premises.
Raves for the cookies from customers convinced the hotel
chain to start selling the chocolaty munchables by the
half-dozen.  But if you've got an insatiable chocolate
chip cookie urge that can't wait for a package to be delivered
in the mail, you'll want to try this cloned version fresh out
of your home oven.  Just be sure to get the cookies out of
there when they are turning light brown.  This way they'll
stay soft in the middle when cool.  For even better results,
you can chill the dough overnight before you commence with
the ceremonial baking.

1/2 cup rolled oats
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 eggs
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine. Combine
 the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
in a medium bowl.
3. Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in
 another medium bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix
 until smooth.
4. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add
the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix by hand until
ingredients are well incorporated.
5. Spoon rounded 1/4-cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
 Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. You don't need to press
the dough flat. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until cookies are
light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container
when cool to keep soft. For the best results, chill the dough
overnight in the refrigerator before baking the cookies.
Makes 20 cookies.

Drake's® Devil Dogs®

Here's a clone recipe for a favorite east coast
treat that could even fool Rosie O'Donnell. The snack
food - loving talk show hostess professes her love
for these tasty Drake's goodies all the time on her
daytime show. And who could blame her? It's hard not
to relish the smooth, fluffy filling sandwiched between
two tender devil's food cake fingers. I'll take a Devil
Dog over a Twinkie any day of the week. For this clone
recipe, we'll make the cakes from scratch. This will
help us to create a flavor and texture closest to the
original, although the color will be much lighter than
the real thing (the miracles of food coloring). But if
you're feeling especially lazy, you can certainly use a
devil's food cake mix in place of the scratch recipe here.
Just make the filling with the recipe below and assemble
your cakes the same way.

1 egg
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 cups marshmallow creme (1 7-ounce jar)
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons very hot water

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, blend together the egg, shortening,
and sugar with an electric mixer. Continue beating while
adding the milk and vanilla.
3. In another bowl sift together remaining cake ingredients -
 flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder.
4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and beat
 until smooth.
5. Spoon about a tablespoon of the batter in strips about 4 inches
 long and 1 inch wide on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for
 5 to 6 minutes or until the cakes are done. Cool.
6. In another bowl combine the marshmallow creme, shortening,
 powdered sugar and vanilla. Dissolve the 1/8 teaspoon of salt
 in the 2 teaspoons of very hot water in a small bowl. Add this
 salt solution to the filling mixture and beat on high speed with
 an electric mixer until the filling is smooth and fluffy.
7. When the cakes have cooled, spread about a tablespoon of
filling on the face of one cake and top it off with another cake.
 Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Makes 20 to 24 snack cakes.
