Whether we want to admit it or not, many people look forward to dessert more than the main course. Unfortunately, this often occurs when we have worked passionately on a delectable entree. Next time you hear, “what’s for dessert?” crop up halfway through your next dinner party, you can feel confident and ready to impress if you offer any of the following five popular and scrumptious desserts:
Rice Krispie Treats
People of all ages are sure to love these moist and fluffy treats. This simple dessert requires only three ingredients: marshmallows, Rice Krispie cereal, and butter. After briefly melting butter and marshmallows in a saucepan, cereal is added and poured into a rectangular cake pan to settle, before being cut into small squares.
If this is a common dessert that everyone likes, you can even get creative and use different cereals, marshmallow colors and even throw a different type of candies in the mix. This makes an excellent way to make a regular treat spectacular. Everyone will love it!
Although popular at campsites across the nation, this chocolaty dessert can be enjoyed anywhere at any time with the help of a microwave or conventional oven. Simply place a piece of chocolate on top of a graham cracker and place it in a preheated oven for a few minutes until the chocolate softens. Then, simply place a marshmallow on top and cover with another graham cracker.
Yes, this traditional yet admired dessert is sure to satisfy everyone at the table. Pre-packaged ice cream may be convenient, but consider using the Ice Cream maker to create a delicious treat in virtually any flavor that you wish. Homemade ice cream offers a tasty smoothness that cannot compare to pre-packaged versions. Best of all, an ice cream maker simplifies the process. To get everything you need is just a quick trip to the market.
Fresh Fruit with Dip
This dessert is even a hit with those that are health-conscious since they can eat the fruit without the dip. Fruit dip can easily be created by combining whip cream, cream cheese and a dash of sugar. Of course, any local supermarket also sells pre-packaged fruit dip as well. Fresh bananas, strawberries, grapes, and apples make great companions for fruit dip.
If you want a dip and still keep the dessert semi health-friendly, you can get a little creative there as well and use a low-fat pudding. Another way to go is to use your favorite flavor of yogurt and serve that as a dip. Again, this is understanding the needs of those around you and delivering what you think will be a crowd favorite.
This versatile dessert can be customized to suit anyone. Popular ingredients include M&Ms, nuts, coconut, raisins, marshmallows, cranberries and yogurt chips. Once you have decided on the ingredients, simply combine and serve.
Ultimately, making a dessert that pleases everyone can be a simple task if you serve ice cream, Rice Krispie treats, smores, fresh fruit, and dip or trail mix. These popular desserts can be customized to suit the taste of those who will enjoy them.
