Mocha Shake & Links: recipes I'd like to try

This hardly requires a recipe, but in case you happen to have "extra" coffee ice cream in your freezer right now:

Mocha Shake:

~ 1 cup strong cold coffee
~ 3/4 pint coffee ice cream
~ 1/2 chocolate bar (.75 oz)
~ 1 tbsp cocoa powder
~ 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
~ 5 ice cubes

Blend coffee, cocoa powder and ice until cocoa powder is completely mixed in. Add the chocolate syrup, ice cream and chocolate bar, and blend again. Split between two glasses, and, if you're feeling fancy, garnish with chocolate shavings (run a potato peeler down the side of a chocolate bar).

A few links of recipes I've picked up here and there that look great:

Chicken Cheese Puffs

Apple Dumplings - these look pretty easy, too!

Pecan Pie Bars

and an oldy but a goody I haven't made since I was old enough to drive:

Lemon Bars
