|Our simplest recipes that nearly any college student can prepare; even a freshman!|
Today's recipe is great for the dorm room. Many dormitories have a common kitchen area available to students, and this recipe is easy for them to prepare and serve. Most of the ingredients are easy to ship to your favorite college student; just print this recipe and send with a care package, and you'll be their favorite relative for quite some time. (Anyone who sends food usually is.)
In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, walnuts, and extracts. Set aside for use later.
Heat applesauce in a saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes until thoroughly warmed. Add sugar, butter, cocoa, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly for about 1 minute. Remove the mixture from heat source and immediately add it to the reserved mixture of dry ingredients. Thoroughly combine all ingredients with a wooden spoon.
Drop by the teaspoonful onto waxed paper. When cooled and a bit firm, roll in confectioner's sugar, if desired. Store in an air-tight container or refrigerate. Or pass around the dorm room and don't worry about leftovers students rarely possess them.
Kitchen Staff Tip: What's the bare minimum for a college student spice rack? Try this basic selection of herbs and spices; it will cover many recipes for easy-to-prepare foods. Salt and black pepper, garlic and onion powders, dried sage, tarragon, oregano, dill, marjoram and basil, cinnamon and cloves, chili powder and paprika, and a splash of curry powder.
