Desserts on a stick?

Posted this in the Food and Recipes section, but thought I'd try here too, for traffic.

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!

What about desert kebabs?

You could use bamboo skewers and thread on various sponges ie brownies, lemon drizzle etc and maybe intersperse them with fruit?

Or make a draught board using squares of white and dark brownies, with little cookies as the counters?

Ice lollies, fruit rainbow kebabs with some chocolate dipping sauce, toasted marshmallows, chocolate fountain, fondu,

Love the idea of fruit kebabs. Any idea how I could get cheesecake on a stick in a "cake pop" kind of look?

just make a cheesecake (the oven baked, not fridge kind) and cut it into cubes.

Great ideas here.

Can I come?

If you did a chocolate cheesecake you could make chocolate cake cases, or better still the truffle size ones, and assemble the cheesecake inside that, served on top of some form of edible stick, either mikados or the conical ice cream decoration ones or a flake depending which size choc cake case it's got to hold up.

If you do fruit kebabs, maybe use a chocolate mikado biscuit to put the fruit onto? Very popular in my slimming world group Grin

You can do cheesecake in push pop cases.


AuntyBatshit · 07/07/2015 21:08
