When you are a guest or host of a dinner party there is always one thing that remains the same, you want to provide food that everyone loves and remembers. There are a number of ways you can do this. You can cook something truly irresistible that everyone will love and want time and time again, or you can cook something show-stopping, something different. Something that the guests may not have had before and therefore something they are likely to remember.
To help give you a little inspiration for your next dinner party, whether you are hosting or charged with supplying the dessert, here are some fun pudding ideas to use at your next dinner party.
Everyone loves cake and everyone loves a crepe so when you combine the two you have the perfect pud. A crepe cake is layers of tender crepes, morish chocolate whipped cream filling topped with more whipped cream, berries, and melted chocolate. Better yet, it is a pudding that looks impressive but remains easy to make. This cake is also perfect for those with intolerances as gluten-free versions can easily be made by swapping traditional flour for gluten-free flour. You can also play around with the toppings to suit your guests and taste. Find this delectable and easy to follow crepe cake recipe at fromscratchfast.com.
A chocolate fountain is always seen as that wow factor centerpiece at weddings, events, and hotels so why not bring the wow factor to your next dinner party. What is more, a chocolate fountain is an incredibly easy dessert that requires very little input. All you need is a decent chocolate fountain machine, some high-quality chocolate, and foodstuff for dipping. The most time-consuming part will be chopping up and arranging the condiments to smother in silky smooth chocolate. Items that go well with chocolate fondue are strawberries, pineapple, small donut or cake pieces, meringues, wafers, and brownies, the list is endless.
Fruit Pierogi falls into the different but memorable category. A famous eastern European dish that will get your guests talking and inquiring about for many a dinner party to come. A pierogi is a form of dumpling that encases sweet fruits, usually berries such as strawberries. You can make it from scratch or save yourself the time and effort and buy it pre-made – it tastes just as good. You simply boil (pre-made) pierogi in a pan for a few minutes until soft and then it is ready. However, the piece de resistance is the topping you add to your Pierogi. Adding some whipped cream, fresh berries, or perhaps a fruit coulis on top will enhance not only the flavor but the style and presentation. Another great topping to sweeten this dreamy dessert is a drizzle of honey or cinnamon syrup. It is best served warm and fresh out of the pan for the best and most memorable taste.
