    I am a newbie and have an opportunity to really push my business ahead with DHs company pot luck Christmas party. Give me a WOW recipe!!

    I was thinking trifle, but which one?

    I was also thinking of showing off my beautiful cranberry glazed DCB with Chili-Lime Meatballs??

    Then again I have the snow man platter and plates....

    I want to make everything but that would just be showing off!!:D

    Thank you in advance! Heather

    The trifle, definitely. I have made the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup one that I found on here, though something with cherries might go over well this time of year (though I personally don't like cherries). It's a WOW recipe b/c it looks impressive, but was super easy. It's very cool b/c you can remove it from the stand for travel and has a lid. Lots of ooh ahh moments for people who see you set it up.

    Definitely going with a trifle. Someone said the Tiramisu Brownie but I cant find that recipe....still looking.

    What about making an app or a main dish, too??

    It was in the Season's Best Fall/Winter 2008 so if you search in Consultant's Corner, you can see the recipe there. Do you know how to do that? I see you are knew so trying not to assume you know everything :). I haven't made it, but sounds good. I don't typically have coffee in the house.

    I sometimes like to bring warm dips to things like that since that's something that's missing. Crab Rangoon, Touchdown Taco, Crab & Artichoke. The meatballs would be good too as long as you can keep it warm. I can understand wanted to show off more stuff :). There were some Pesto appetizers that looked good in the new appetizer cookbook too.

    I like things that are EASY but look great. It's more impressive.

    I found it in the huge Trifle download file. But now hubby says he wants the Black Forest Trifle. I also think I am going to make a crock pot of the Chili lime meatballs.I wonder if I can find Thai red curry paste at Wally at 9 PM??!!

    Even though it sounds like you have what you need, I'll post what I've been making lately that has been a big hit. I took it to a ladies meeting last night (everyone asked "Who made the "Death by Chocolate" Trifle!?" and they kept going back for seconds.) I'm making it for two other parties this weekend :)


    The "Death by Chocolate" Trifle is a super simple Trifle- has 4 ingredients:
    Brownies (made as directed),
    2 small boxes of chocolate pudding (made as directed),
    1 1/2 tubs of Cool Whip (or 1 big one), and
    1-2 Heath Bars or Heath Toffee Chips.

    Layer 1/2 the brownie, 1/2 the pudding, 1/2 the cool whip, then sprinkle with broken toffee chips. Repeat layers and let sit about 4 hrs (refrig), then serve.

    You may be able to get away with the DCB depending on where it is. Far from home? Have a insulated carrier it will fit in? Is there a microwave there for a little boost of heat? Stones do hold their heat pretty well, but I don't know how long it will sit before people will eat?

    I do one like this but use crushed Oreos instead of Heath bars and everyone has loved it too!

    Do you thing that one bag of Heath Pieces is enough for this recipe? I am making it on Monday.
