This one is called cafe gateux. It is very simple. All you need is a pack of plain biscuits and some whip cream. Beat the cream until is quite solid. Add some chocolate powder. Then just dip the biscuits in hot black coffee. Make a layer in a glass or plastic dish. Fill the dish with a layer of coffee dipped biscuits and a layer of cream.One layer on top of the other. Finish with the cream layer and then top off with some chocolate peices and hazelnut pieces. You must refrigerate for at least 12 hours but it's worth the wait

banana split - banana split is so yummy!
The easiest dessert I know is the banna split sundae (hahaha!) - slice a banana in half then lay them on the bowl - add 2 to 3 scoops of ice cream of your choice - put some whipped cream, chocolate/ strawberry syrup, some marshmallows/ chocolate chips now you can eat! If you can't find whipped cream in a can I suggest you do this... - chill the all purpose cream for half an hour - pour into a huge bowl - use an egg beater to whisk it really fast until it looks like a foam

A great grown-up treat is a drunken watermelon. Get a big one and make two small holes in the top (you want to have the watermelon resting naturally some place out of the way). put a funnel in one of the holes and pour in vodka until the melon won't take any more. Let it sit for an hour or two, and repeat. Do this for a whole day, and you can serve it the next day. It's really very good, and kind of potent, but great for a summer party!

I forgot to mention -- I do mine in wedges. Use an electric knife to cut it, if you have one, and it will be very quick and easy.

I usually make this at Thanksgiving as an alternative to cranberry sauce but it is good any time. Open a can of sliced pineapple and drain the juice. (I drink the juice while making the rest) Mix a box of jello (your choice of flavor that you think you would like with pineapple) and pour into can of drained pineapple. Refrigerate until set. When set, take out of refrigerator and open the other end of the can. Quickly run can under warm water to help loosen the jello from the can taking care not to get water in the can. Gently slide out of can onto plate and slice between pineapple slices.
