HOW TO COOK 4 easy dessert recipes - Oreo Graham Cake, Chicken Macaroni Salad, Gelatin with cheese and Fruit Cocktail Salad

 Oreo Graham Cake:

     First, whisk the all purpose cream in a bowl until it gets frothy. Fold in the condensed milk and continue to shisk until mixture is fully combined.

     Prepare a baking pan and pour in a portion of the mixture, just enough to cover the base of the pan. Then, layer in graham crackers. Crumb graham crackers to cover the sides. Pour in another portion of the mixture enough to cover the crackers. Place oreo cookies on top. Cover the exposed cream with graham cracker crumbs. Pour in a portion of the mixture enough to cover the cookies. Repeat this procedure until you reach your desired height of the cake or until it leaves only an inch from the top of the pan.

     Crush Oreo cookies and sprinkle them on top of the cake. Cover the pan and freeze overnight. 

Chicken Macaroni Salad:

     Lets begin making this macaroni salad, This just have many ingredients but the procedure is just easy. Cook 150 grams of chicken breast in a deep pan with 500 ml of water for 15 minutes. Add 1 whole piece of a peeled carrot then cook for another 15 minutes. Transfer to a clean bowl. Cut the carrots into small cubes and shred the chicken breast meat then set aside. In a deep pan boil 2.5 liters of water. Add 1 tablespoon of salt and 400 grams of macaroni elbow pasta let it cook for 10 minutes. Once the pasta is cooked, transfer it in a separate clean bowl.

     Prepare a large bowl for mixing the ingredients. Pour 470 ml of mayonnaise and  250 ml of all-purpose cream gently mix the two ingredients together. Add 5 tablespoon of condensed milk, cooked macaroni elbow pasta, cooked carrots, 1 piece of minced red onion, 200 grams pineapple bits, 150 grams of raisins, cooked shredded chicken, a dash of pepper, and 165 grams of cheese. Mix all the ingredients. Add salt as needed. Adjust the amount of sweetness and salt to your liking. Chill before serving. 

Gelatin with Cheese:

     Let’s begin by preparing the ingredients and don’t worry you only need the stove once for the gelatin. In a deep pan pour 6 cups of water. Pour 1 pack or 24 grams of gulaman powder. Stir to dissolve the gulaman powder in the water then turn on the stove on medium heat. Add 1 can or 300 ml of condensed milk. Adjust the level of sweetness to your liking by adding sugar (in this recipe 1 cup of sugar was added). Continually stir until it boils. 

     Transfer to a container of your choice. Use a simple strainer to remove undissolved chunks of gelatin. Let it cool for a while then sprinkle 1 cup of cubed cheese. Chill before serving.

Fruit Cocktail Salad:

     Start by draining the  Fruit Cocktail. Then, in a large bowl, pour in drained fruit cocktail. Mix in Condensed milk and all purpose cream. Add in cheese and mix well. Freeze/chill overnight.

Tips on Cooking this recipe

For Oreo Graham cake:

  • Chill all purpose cream and condensed milk before using for more frothiness.
  • Use square or rectangular pans relative to the size of the graham crackers to make it easier to layer.

For the Fruit Cocktail Salad:

  • Make sure that the fruit cocktail is drained very well. The shelf life of the salad may be reduced if there are a lot of juice mixed in with the salad.
  • You can pre-mix the cream and milk first before putting the fruit cocktail to make it easier to mix thoroughly.
  • You can add nata de coco and kaong if desired.
