details - I want an interesting dessert recipe to make for a party we are having. I don't want the usual cake, pie or cookie. When I think of football game parties deserts that come to mind are dirt dessert, rice crispie treats, cookie bars, blondies... I want something interesting. My mom is making home made pioneer potato soup, spring rolls, sour kraut & Kelbasi, and picking up Winghouse Wings. My brother's girlfriend is in charge of a vegie tray. So I need something that kind of goes... and something interesting. Any ideas?

I might be able to help you out. I make a 3 layer brownie recipe for holdays and occasions and they are always very popular...and I guarantee they're a bit different from the ussual. Here's what they are: the bottom layer is regular brownie, the 2nd is like a vanilla buttercream frostin, and the top is a thin chocolate layer. They are really yummy and fairly easy to make. If you want I'll hook you up with the recipe =) Cheers Carrie

how about popcorn balls? these are usually sweet, but i can definitely see these being made with something like paprika or chili spice: pop some corn beforehand, then melt down some large marshmallows and add in the popcorn and a bit of corn syrup (or maple if you are going sweet). this is pretty much the way rice krispie squares are made, if you need more recipe details ;) when the mixture is nice and sticky, form the mixture into balls and refrigerate til snacktime. variations: for sweet stuff, add cinnamon, brown sugar, orange juice or anything like that that would add flavor. for saltier stuff, you can definitely add SALT (lol), and /or chili powder, paprika, thyme, or any similar dry spices. and you canmake these in different sizes, but if you want to make it more funny for the adults, making them 3 or 4 inches wide will cause them to slobber and gnaw at the things to break off chunks ;) if you want to stay more dignified, go with a 2-incher lol have fun!

I may think about doing some salty ones and some sweet ones. We used to make those all the time when were little.

cool! i don't know anybody who has even heard of these tasty treats :) but i guess doing sweet and salty ones would be fun and appeal to everyone's tastes whether they're salt freaks or sweet nuts ;)

Well, I would think of making you own type of Chex Party mix, with the soy sauce, cereal, nuts, etc. That is always a Good party type food we used to have for things like this when I was growing up.

I made this for my baby shower and I found it online. It's very easy to make. Cheesecake cookie cups: ~12 pieces of Nestle Toll House Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough ~One package (8 oz) cream cheese at room temperature ~Half cup Nestle Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk ~One large egg ~One teaspoon vanilla extract ~One can (21 oz) Cherry pie filling The cherries can be replaced with fresh or frozen strawberries or whatever you like. Preheat oven to 325 F. Paper line 12 muffin cups. Place one piece of cookie dough in each cup. Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookie has spread to the edge of the cup. Beat cream cheese,condensed milk,egg and vanilla extract in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour about 3 tablespoons of cream cheese mixture over each cookie in the cups. Bake for an additional 15-18 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack (or wherever,lol). Top with pie filling (or your choice of topping). Refrigerate for one hour. That's it!!!! Enjoy!!! Hope you like it!!!

Football Bowl Surprize Get a big round loaf of sourdough or Hawaiian round bread and cut a huge circle out of the middle but not all the way down to the bottom, just to make it look like a huge bowl. with the bread you cut out, make into little cubes and out into another bowl. Now get out a mixing bowl and add 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup mayo, 1 tsp oregano, 1 small pkg defrosted and patted dry (with paper towel) spinach, 1 tsp chopped garlic and 1 tsp minced onion or ground onion powder. Blend well and pour into bread bowl. Top with bacon bits and grated cheese as optional. Use the extra bread bits for dipping and/or use chips or doritos, pringles, etc.

I meant to subsitute the chips and bread for fruit in order to make it into a dessert. Works either way - as an appetizer or dessert. Use apple pieces, orange slices, pineapple chunks, etc.

hehe, how about making chocolate buckeyes? XD After all, Ohio State's team name is the Buckeye. I'm sure if you went on-line, you kind find all different types of recipes for buckeyes! (I'm from Ohio :P)

I'm from Ohio too... I live in Florida now. I've had buckeyes before... but it can't be team related as half the people are Gators fans.

okay this may sound strange or maybe you are already aware of it, same concept as rice crispie treats, but instead of using rice crispies use Cornflakes, what we do is make Holly cookies, you can use green food coloring to make the cornflakes green, and then add little red hots on top for the holly berries...but you could do without the food coloring and just do cornflakes instead of the rice crispies

Quick Apple Cobbler 2 cans apple pie filling 1 box yellow cake mix 1/2 cup butter or margarine 2teaspoons nutmeg 2 teaspoons cinnamon Spread the apple pie filling in a 9x13 disposable baking pan( greased and slightly floured) and mix the cake mix, butter and spices together until they look crumbly. Crumble the cake mix/spice mixture over the filling and bake for 35minutes at 350 degrees. Smells and tastes great, and if you like, haul some ice cream too.

yum and fun - make it fun
why not make a watermellon cake ...mmmmm yum or mississippi mud cake. Or you could make a sheet cake with green frosting and make the football field. goal post out of straws or popcycle sticks. Get a platic football and put it on the 50 yard line. Put the teams names one on each end of the gake.

I think brownies is a great idea because they are less messy and are easy to hold and eat and who doesn't like a good brownie? I found a good recipe a while back here it is. Kahlua fudge brownies: 1-1/2 cups sugar 2 large eggs 1/4cup of butter 3 tbs.Kahlua 1-1/4 cups of sifted cake flour 1 tea.od baking powder 1/2 cup of cocoa 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 1.)combine first (4) ingrediants,stirring until well blended. combine flour,baking powder,cocoa,stir into sugar mixture. fold in walnuts. spoon into a lightly greased9-inch square pan. 2.)Bake at 325*degrees for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. cool on a wire rack and cut into squares.makes 12-16 brownines.
