Dessert party

So, after we moved to our new place I could not think of a better way to announce our arrival in the neighborhood and get a few co workers together than by having a dessert party open house. Boy, was it fun and the turn out was great. After spending 2 days (yes, you heard correct - 2 days!!!) making desserts, it was rewarding seeing everyone enjoying themselves and, more importantly, enjoying all my hard work :).
So, what was on the menu, You ask??? Well, let's see if I can remember everything. 

1). Reese's peanut butter cookie dough dip served with Graham crackers and regular crackers.

2). Caramel apple pizza

3). Chocolate sundae cupcakes  - These were a big hit with all the kids
I baked the cupcakes directly in the cones!

4). Rice Krispie Treat pops 
(The credit for these pops goes to my 5 year old and 10 year old who took part in making them)

5). Individual Banana split parfaits (recipe courtesy of Kraft)

6). Oreo truffles

7). Graham Bites

8). Napolean pastries

9). 7 layer bars

10) Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting

I was also going to make brownie crackle cookies, and chocolate fantasy, but after making all the above desserts, I was pooped out :). The Coffee was catered by Starbucks. This was my first time using them as my official party caterer for coffee and I must say, I was impressed. Along with the coffee, they also sent cups, lids, stirrers, 2 Grande size cups filled with creamer, Raw Sugar Packets, splenda packets, equal packets, regular sugar packets, and sweet'n low packets. Phew! 

Here are a few dessert table shots. Enjoy!! I will do a follow up post for recipes soon.
