Easy-to-Make Dessert?

My family's having a family get-together on Saturday, and I was asked to bring a dessert? Any suggestions on a dessert that's easy to make?

  • buy a cheese cake at walmart, it's delicious and actually costs about the same to buy one as to make it from scratch.

  • Trifles are so easy and pack a big punch! My favorite is just a layer of chocolate cake, a layer of chocolate pudding, a layer of whipped cream, a layer of chocolate cake, chocolate pudding and whipped cream and then top it off with ground up Heath bars or Oreos. So easy and so yummy!

    I just bake a boxed devil's food cake and split it in half, one half for each layer. Instant pudding takes about five minutes to make, if that. And two tubs of Cool Whip. Walla!

  • Easiest, best dessert ever:

    cream cheese pie:

    with an electric mixer, beat 2 8oz packages of cream cheese (softened at room temp) with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk and 1 tsp lemon juice. Pour into a premade graham cracker pie crust. Chill in the fridge for about 4 hours. Top with fresh blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries or a combo of all 3 :)

  • I love the no bake Jello cheesecake, and my kids love it. I also like No Bake cookies. Who doesn't love cookies?

  • How many do you have to serve?

    Charlie Brown Pie
    Buy a graham cracker crust. For a skimpy pie, mix 1 small box chocolate pudding with 1.5 cups milk. For a full pie, mix 2 small boxes with 3 cups milk. Pour into shell before it sets. Once set, spread on some Cool-Whip (anywhere from 1/2 - 1 tub). I make this all the time for meals at our school or church and it's the first thing taken - huge hit with all ages!

    Banana Cream Pie
    Buy a graham cracker crust. Mix 1 small box banana pudding with 1.5 cups milk. Slice 2 bananas into pudding, and pour into crust. Top with Cool-Whip.
