Chocolate Treats- Baker's Chocolate Quick Fix

Today I was digging in some of my out of the way cookbook boxes and I found more Hershey and Baker's cookbooks plus some odd ones. How many chocolate cookbooks do I need 6 or 8? I don't think so. These recipes are from a little book titled Chocolate Quick Fix- Recipes You Can Make In 15 Minutes Or Less published in 1985. It has a lot of very tasty sounding recipes. Here is a sampling:
Cornflake Candy
16 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
5 cups cornflakes
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup pecans, chopped
Melt milk chocolate in double boiler over low heat. In separate bowl, mix cornflakes and nuts together. Pour melted chocolate over cornflake mixture and stir to coat all ingredients. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place in the refrigerator to chill and harden. Makes about 48 pieces.
Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes
1 package (8-ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
4 ounces coffee-flavor yogurt (do they still make this?)
Line 24 mini-muffin tins with paper liners. Beat cream cheese with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg. Beat in chocolate. Stir in yogurt. Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture into each liner. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until set, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool on wire rack. Refrigerate overnight.
Easy Chocolate Strudel
6 sheets fillo pastry
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces chopped walnuts
1 cup crushed cinnamon graham crackers
Brush one sheet fillo with melted butter; layer with remaining 5 sheets, brushing each with butter. Sprinkle chocolate, walnuts, and crackers over fillo, leaving a 2-inch margin on all sides. Fold in two short ends; roll pastry, beginning with long edge. Brush roll with butter. Place seam side down on baking sheet. Score top of pastry into slices with sharp knife. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven until crips and golden, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
