the oven is broken this is the third time so I didn't bother to tell the landlord because she just keeps replacing it piece by piece ...first the inside that heats up broke then the door came apart then the handle all she did was have someone glue the handle back on and when the inside piece that gets hot (its electric) broke then she blamed me and said it broke because I turned it up to 400...anyhow I plan to move soon but the inside thing broke again so I bought a slow cooker so I am wondering if there are any dessert recipes with chocolate that I can make in the slow cooker...I miss homemade chocolate chip cookies but not enough to go through the headache of the landlord having some dope addict off the street to fix the oven half assed once again..recipes please?????

You can also make chocolate pudding. You're going to have to Google it - I'm on my phone. You also don't need an oven to make chocolate mousse. Or a refrigerator pie.

Well, tell her it's an OVEN, not a refrigerator. Our ovens routinely reach 450°F. I would demand the oven be repaired properly, as it's a hazard in its current state.

Buy a countertop toaster oven, for $70-100 you will be able to bake cookies again, just not many at a time.

That's what we did after a ground wire shorted out on our oven. We bought a toaster oven and are using it until we can get our oven fixed.

To piggy back onto the above, I'd suggest a toaster oven as well. If you can't afford to purchase one new, you may be able to find one at a Salvation Army/Goodwill store for cheap, OR, consider borrowing one from someone. It never hurts to check Craiglist or Freecycle as well.

If I were you I would fix stove-top No Bakes:



Ingredients
  • 1¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • 8 tablespoons butter, cut into large pieces
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats

Instructions
  1. Add sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa powder to a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and allow to keep boiling for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla, salt and oats. Drop large scoops of no bake batter onto parchment paper or, better yet, into paper baking cups. Allow to set for about 10-15 minutes until the cookies are firm. Keep refrigerated.
Or the other no-bake go-to, Chocolate Chip Rice Krispy Squares:


Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 10-ounce bag large marshmallows (about 40)
6 cups crisp rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies®)
¾ cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 cup unsweetened coconut (optional)

  1. Line a 13 x 9 baking pan with foil, allowing the ends of the foil to drape over the ends of the pan. Spray the foil lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Measure rice cereal and coconut into a mixing bowl. Combine them together. Set aside
  3. Measure ½ cup miniature chocolate chips. Set aside.
  4. Set butter and marshmallows in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove the bowl from the oven and stir. Return bowl to the oven. Microwave in 30-second increments, removing the bowl and stirring the marshmallow mixture each time until it is smooth.
  5. When the marshmallow mixture is ready, pour it into the rice cereal mixture. Stir quickly, combining thoroughly to coat the cereal. As the coated cereal cools, the melted marshmallows will begin to look stringy. At this point, fold ½ cup miniature chocolate chips into the coated cereal.
  6. With a piece of waxed paper or wet fingers, press the cereal mixture in the prepared baking pan. Flatten the cereal evenly in the pan. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup miniature chocolate chips evenly over the surface. Press the chips into the cereal.
  7. Allow cookies to set up for 30 minutes. You can place the pan in the refrigerator 15-30 minutes or longer to speed up the process.
  8. Lift the foil ends to remove the bars from the pan. Set the bars on a cutting board. Peel back the foil. Use a long bread knife to cut the bars into 2-inch squares.
  9. Store bars in an airtight container with waxed paper in between layers.
