My Thoughts On Choco-Holic Ho Ho Cake:

I love the Hostess Ho Ho's but this recipe takes the cake! Literally! It is an easy recipe with three steps but you will be glad when you cut yourself a piece of this chocolate lover's delight. If you like coffee it would go great with it too. You will be sure to win some people over with this recipe.

Extra Information For You:

Mr. McKee started selling 5-cent cakes in 1933. Then in 1935, he came out with the Oatmeal Creme Pie. Since then, the family has been selling great dessert cakes. Hostess has the Ho Ho's and The Little Debbie company has the Swiss Roll. They are comparable and both are tasty. You can learn more about Little Debbie and its history by visiting their site in this post.

Question For You:

What is your favorite snack cake? The Hostess Ho Ho or Little Debbie's Swiss Roll? I am sure after you try your hand at my Choco-Holic Ho Ho Cake you will love it the best. Did you see my last recipe? It is also a dessert recipe and it's called Brown Edge Saucies Easy Recipe. It is an applesauce cookie recipe.

Personal Thoughts For Today:

It's starting to get cooler and you know what that means. It's time to make a fire outside in the firepit and enjoy the warmth with family or friends.

My backyard metal firepit with stars cut in the side.

My daughter asked me recently if we could make a fire. It is such a great thing to do and a great excuse to roast hotdogs and marshmallows over the fire.  I had to get some beef hotdogs because they are the best tasting in my opinion and some marshmallows. I found some graham crackers with cinnamon and sugar on them along with a Hershey's milk chocolate bar for making smores. I only had one but it was so good.

The Smore I made. You know the recipe.

I had some wood logs left over from last year that I purchased from the store. I don't live in the country so I am forced to buy wood for the firepit. I do live in town and have some trees that create small wood in the yard but I use that for getting the fire started. 

An Update On My Wood Pellet Stove:

I got the hole cut in my chimney to run my metal stovepipe through for the exhaust. I figured out how to get cool air from outside based on the location of my wood pellet stove. I am drilling a hole in the floor behind the wood stove and running my intake hose under the house using a plastic pipe. The pipe leads to the vent in the side of my house and is almost exactly where I need it. It will work out great and I am going to be posting more pictures as I get it installed.

Today I am going to the Lowe's store. I will be looking at more exhaust pipe to complete the job and a stove plate to sit the wood pellet stove on. The idea for the stove plate is to catch any ashes that might fall out of the stove and to help protect the floor under the stove as well.

It is 57 degrees today so it is a little cooler and I had to put on my pullover hoodie. I think it will be warmer tomorrow and will give me a chance to work on installing the cool air intake system I have designed. I was thinking about making a video to post on my YouTube channel so you can see it after I have it installed. Please subscribe so you won't miss my videos.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today. If you have a fire pit, it is a good thing to get out and use it this time of the year. It will give you a chance to unwind and forget about work or whatever you have been distracted by recently. If you don't have a fire pit, maybe you know someone who does. Thanks for reading and be sure to share my Choco-Holic Ho Ho Cake with a friend.
