Pretty please with a cherry on top
I have to make something for my mom for a potluck on Friday. I’m sick of baking the same ol’ cookies and cupcakes. Can someone help me out?
ETA: Sorry, I forgot to change the forum before posting this.

@CaraMia10: I’m craving rice crispy treats.

Have you ever tried to make a cheesecake? you could do a cheesecake, with a cherry on top.

Those sound awesome right now. My mom made some for Christmas to give her staff. She made them out of a round cookie cutter and dipped one side in chocolate and put sprinkles…they were freaking DELISH.

I’m open to suggestions. I have crusts for pies, chocolate, nuts, flour, sugar, anything to make anything. What’s your favorite recipe? Or your never fail, always go to?

This one’s good and easy: Take the square pretzels (the ones that look like windows) and you lay them out on a cookie sheet. Put an unwrapped hershey kiss on top of each one and then put the cookie sheet in the oven for a few minutes, until they are soft. Then take an M & M and push it down into the hershey kiss on each one and let cool. Yummy!
Apple Cobbler: Take about 3-4 apples and peel, core, and cut them into slices. Mix the apples in the bottom of an 8×8 cake pan with 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp bisquick, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. In a separate bowl combine 2/3 cup bisquick, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp milk and mix. Cut in 1/4 cup butter until it makes small balls. Drop small amounts of mixture on top of the apple mixture and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
I also make this delicious chocolate chip cake that’s from the Charleston Cake Lady’s recipe book. PM me if you want this recipe. It’s like a chocolate chip cookie in a cake.
Let me know if you make any of these! I have a lot more but these are my fave non-cookie recipes.

@RingAroundtheRosie: Those all sound SO good, especially the pretzel thingies. I’d love the cookie cake recipe though.

If you like mint chocolate, Grasshopper Pie is FI’s and my favorite recipe to make for friends.

Make cake balls! You bake a cake, make the icing, but then mix the icing into the baked cake, forming a cake-y icing-y paste. Then you scoop that into balls using an ice cream scoop, and round them with your hand into little spheres. Then dip ’em in chocolate, and you can put sprinkles, chopped nuts, chocolate shavings, etc. on top while the chocolate is still wet. Or you can drizzle them with more chocolate or a colored white chocolate when the chocolate has set. They are easy to make, they just take a few extra steps. And people love them.
My recommendation – use a red velvet cake, with a cream cheese icing, and coated in dark chocolate. Sooooo good!

I just made this awesome white chocolate bread pudding with strawberry sauce after a co-worker made it for a work party. It’s ridiculously good, though a little time consuming to make.
I used French bread, like the recipe calls for, but my co-worker used Challah, and I think it was better with Challah.
The strawberry sauce is AMAZING…
Add 1/8 tsp salt to the sauce to bring out the flavor a little more.

@linguo42: That looks awesome! No way could I make that and send it off w/ someone else, I’d want it all for myself, lol. I’ll definitely have to try that recipe.
@Bubu82: I love cake balls and they are so so easy. That’s definitely another option. I’m thinking on a stick would be even better!

Ridiculously easy, serves a large crowd, and no leftovers at all:
1 large package French Vanilla pudding mix
1 pint (2 cups) buttermilk (do not substitute regular milk)
1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
1 package striped shortbread cookies, crushed (reserve 1/4 cup for garnish)
1 (8oz) tub Cool Whip
In a large mixing bowl (the biggest you can find), combine pudding and buttermilk. Fold in pineapple, cookie crumbs, and Cool Whip. When everything is mixed well, refrigerate overnight. Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top before serving.

@McVerde: That does sound amazing! Does it need to be served warm?
