Desserts on a stick?

Ok, so we and another family are doing a "Come Dine With Me" thing in August for a laugh. Both families of 4, so one adult with one DC to each team. I've been lumbered with dessert! Now, everyone in the group will expect me to do something "off the wall". I've come up with the idea of doing a trio "lollipop" desert. Chocolate brownies is one, and I'm toying with the idea of a cheesecake one. Any ideas? Eggless would be an advantage as I'd really like to eat it with them!

Strawberries dipped in chocolate
Frozen banana half with one end dipped in chocolate and nuts
Posh ice lolly eg with champagne
Mini toffee apple

Fantastic ideas. Thank you.

Shitfuck. I've just gone back to my original nn after nc.

Any ideas on how I could execute the cheesecake idea? I've seen a recipe which uses just the filling, but I'd really like to incorporate the texture of the cookie base in there too.

Cake pops, surely!!

Couldn't you put the biscuit in the middle held on by the cheesey bit?

Proper cake pops are nice, made from cake crumbs and preferably flavoured buttercream or ganache and dipped in chocolate (not those ones made in a cake pop machine)

Pie? Any kind really.

I never thought of putting the cookie I the middle. <bids for new brain on Ebay>. Cake pops, I was hoping to try to make one with a chocolate brownie. wink

Back to my nv. That was getting confusing!

Profiteroles...that's mostly just shoving a stick in, lol.

Trifle...cake pops with a bit of custard in the middle and jelly on the outside.

Something with meringue round the outside, Eton mess or pavlova...ok, I'm maybe getting carried away now and it's definitely not egg free, but it could work.

I'm liking the trifle idea...how would I put jelly around the outside? I could happily forgo dessert <eyes up size 10 jeans in wardrobe grin so if any eggfull ideas appeal then great!

Just put the cakey bit in unset jelly, it'd set round it...well it would soak in a bit too, but that's why I like trifle, lol

On a side note...it has to be spelt "orrypops" as DS (3) only just started pronouncing it properly, and it's stuck! grin

Unset jelly...perfect! Knew i loved MN for a reason! flowers
