Hi! I came across your page randomly ... I LOVE cooking/baking and recipies .. I also have been looking for a Monster Cookie recipie, I was curious what "white syrup" is? I can't wait to make them. Today I have to make a batch of PB Choc Chips that I have become pretty famous for, so the Monster Cookies will have to wait, but hopefully soon. Also I have to make a desert for my boss' xmas party on Saturday, I have been looking around for something festive, chocolate, and probably a cake, any suggestions? I was going to fall back on Kahula Cake if I didn't find anything else!

Lindsy - white syrup is Karo syrup. It's very popular in the south.

As for something for your xmas party on Sat., I have a wonderful chocolate cake with burbon buttercream icing. I'll get it posted as soon as I can. I make it every year during the holidays and for my husband's b-day. It's his favorite.

MMmm that sounds good, I was also just looking at different Red Velvet cakes, I've never made one, but looks doable ... I will check back for your choc cake! Thanks Lindsy
