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!
