If you are new to our daily Koffee Klatch...Welcome! We're glad you joined the family and never feel shy about posting and joining the conversation. It's a bit of fun in our day where the 'P' word is not the topic of conversation. idea

Since we all love to talk about food...what is your idea of a great dessert? The sky is the limit on this one and you don't even have to share. smilewinkgrin

I know it's almost impossible to choose one, and only one but we'll all do the best we can. For me it should contain chocolate but it has to be good chocolate...or it needs to be in the cake/pastry family. Gosh, this is harder than I thought to limit it. We will probably have to do this topic several yeah OK, I'll hold it down to 2...a great, homemade cheese cake or if it's from a bakery it best be darn good! I have a recipe for a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake and that would do it. <drool> And the other would likely be a cake with lots of chocolate frosting. I like yellow but a nice dark, decadent chocolate would hold up the frosting nicely. (Have you ever had raspberry bread pudding? Or even pumpkin bread pudding??? OK, I'll

So, what's YOUR idea of a great dessert? Strawberry short cake?? Ice Cream? Pie? Pudding? Something homemade?

ohhh, this is a great topic! but man it is making me super hungry! i would have to say tiramisu but it has to be really well made.... lik at a fancy resturant or something, not that i get to go to many of those....haha.... but also i would have to say penut butter blossoms, and those must be homemade, my grandmother always made them for me at xmas, and of course it always tastes better when grandma makes it! :)
but now my mom and i make them, but its one of those things you get once a year and crave for the rest of the year! anyway sorry thats more than one, but that was really hard! haha

Hi Everyone:
I make homemade peanut butter bars that everyone says are better than reeses.  They are so easy to make (there is only 5 or 6 ingredients) and everyone thinks they took you hours to make.  I usually don't share the recipe because I don't want people to know how easy they are to make (HaHa), but for you guys - I'd be more than happy to!!
It's 3:30 a.m. and I'm getting awfully tired, so if anyone is interested in the recipe, just let me know on this thread, and I'd be happy to give it to you!!
Oh, and I would kill for a piece of Chocolate Mousse cake, or Cheesecake, or Carrot cake, or . . . . (OK, I'll stop).

Okay, no recipies from me, but here they are (in no particular order):

Chocolate Cake - I especially love the "All American Chocolate Cake" from Costco's. It's to die for. Dark chocolate, amazing icing, plus the cake is HUGE. We've never finished one, even at big occasions. So what doesn't get dished out to other people to take home goes into the freezer, so it stays good for a long time! The secret to keeping it fresh, is keeping it in the container you buy it in & really making sure that the lid is sealed tight.

Chocolate Chip cookies - homemade, of course

Chocolate Gelato - I just discovered it this year, but it is even BETTER than chocolate ice cream!! It makes the chocolate flavor of chocolate ice cream seem weak in comparison!

CHOCOLATE! - Okay, I know THE BEST brand of chocolate ever (it's waaaay better than Godiva's, and any of the other commonly known "gourmet" brands, in my opinion at least), & it comes from my home town! My town is a little nowhere dot on the map (actually, it's so tiny, it's not even on most maps!), but our chocolate has become famous! Most people don't know of it, but those who do are instant converts! I think that it was featured on GMA one year in a chocolate tasting contest as one of the best chocolates in the country! They are super busy during holidays, because all the famous people in California & big companies order hugs amounts! The only downside is that it's pretty expensive :( but well worth it. If anyone wants the name, feel free to email me. I don't want to put the name up here, as it's from my hometown & I just don't really want to display that for the whole world to see.

My aunt's carrot cake - it's to die for! I've never found a carrot cake that could stand up to it!

Can you tell my theme here....?

I'm hoping to be on tonight! I'm pretty tired, as I've been sleeping even less than normal lately, so, we'll see & I'm not sure I'll be done with lab, even by 9 pm here!
