Delicious Desserts That Are Easy to Prepare

There is an art to dessert making, and if you get it exactly right, it will be that course that you remember most about a meal. Forget the Cheese and biscuits; a delicious dessert really finishes of a meal in style.

I consider myself a bit of a dessert connoisseur; having eaten so many of them in the past. I eat them hot or cold, so here are a few suggestions for desserts you may like to try.

Some of these may already be your favorites, but hopefully there will be some new ones here for you to try too. Why not try them at home adding your own personal touch?

You may make chocolate mousse on a regular basis, but how often do you use white chocolate? You may not feel as if it will taste like a real mousse, but trust me, it is. You may well end up preferring the white version.

Be a bit more adventurous with your chocolate mousse next time you make it. Most of us like summer fruits like Raspberries, so why not drizzle some into the mousse to give the chocolate a bit of fruitiness.

If you think along the same lines like me and want your dessert to look great, you can create wonderful cocktail from ingredients like ice cream using a martini glass.

If you are having guests round to dinner, why not really let your imaginations run riot and produce colorful desserts in a glass that look so good, the compliments will flood in.

Cutting a mango into a rose may sound really difficult, but have a look at the instructions on the internet and you will soon be able to do it yourself really easily. Then just add the filling for a beautiful looking dessert.

Fruit with sorbet or ice cream is always a favourite, and this tasty take on that is simply delicious. Whether using Vanilla or another stronger flavor, this dessert will taste as good as it looks.

A Recipe Collection–Top 3 Most Requested Delicious Desserts

We have had several parties over the years and I have noticed that whenever I serve these 3 homemade desserts, somebody always asks me for the recipes. Now I am sharing my “Top 3 Most Requested Delicious Desserts” with you.

When you are thinking about serving dessert at your next party, consider offering your guests one of these delicious, homemade desserts. I have found that of all the desserts I have served, these are my “Top 3 Most Requested Delicious Desserts” (in no particular order). Enjoy!

Number One Most Requested Delicious Dessert–Raspberry White Chocolate Dream Bars

1 box white cake mix

1/3 cup evaporated milk

1-1/2 sticks melted butter

1 cup chopped nuts

1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam

12 oz. white chocolate chips

Combine cake mix, milk, butter and nuts. Makes a very gooey dough. Spray a 9 x 13 pan and spread half of the dough into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Melt the jam in the microwave (about a minute) and spread on top of hot crust. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over jam. Crumble remaining dough on top and bake an additional 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.

For bigger parties, this recipe easily doubles and can be made in a 15 x 10 pan.

Once you get the hang of this technique, you can think of all sorts of combinations. How about using chocolate cake with mint chips? Or lemon cake with white chocolate?

Number Two Most Requested Delicious Dessert–Chocolate Amaretto Bundt Cake

1 pkg. chocolate devil’s food cake mix

1 small pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix

4 eggs

1 cup milk

1-1/2 oz. Amaretto liqueur

1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup fresh raspberries (optional)

1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam (optional)

Whipped cream (optional)

Glaze

1 stick butter

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup Amaretto

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine first 6 ingredients and blend well. Stir in chips. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.

Melt glaze ingredients in a saucepan or microwave. Pour 2/3 of glaze over top of cake while cake is hot from oven and still in pan. Allow cake to remain in pan for 25 minutes. Remove cake from pan and drizzle with remaining glaze.

When I make this cake dessert, I fill the middle with fresh raspberries and present it on my grandmother’s crystal pedestal cake stand which is very dramatic.

Just before serving, I make a raspberry sauce by melting the jam in the microwave.

Each lucky guest gets a plate with some of the sauce, a slice of cake, a few berries and some whipped cream. Yum!
