So my husband managed to get us involved in a BBQ cookoff with a couple neighbors. It has turned into this HUGE production and there are now 50-60 or so people coming. It is this Sunday!! I am bringing dessert and have never cooked/made anything for this amount of people. I have 2 desserts so far that I have planned on and I'm now thinking I may need another.

So far I have banana pudding and creamy pumpkin pie. I will get those big foil pans and make them in there. Since there will be kiddos, I'm thinking I need something else, and for people that may not like banana or pumpkin flavors. I really don't want to make cookies. I thought about a sheet cake but not sure I have a pan large enough. Any suggestions? I need help! LOL

Make a couple of sheets of brownies and that should cover it. If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, their brownie mix is terrific and very chocolaty.

I would make a few pans of brownies. You can do box mixes, cut them into small squares and call it a day.

Just for fun here is the main dessert thread: Favorite Desserts

Brownies, lemon bars....actually there are all kinds of "bar" recipes (perhaps serve a selection)....Texas sheetcake as well (just use a jellyroll pan - no need for a large sheetcake pan)....I'd definitely stick with something that does not require additional plates or utensils....

Yup, brownies is the easiest go to I could think of - traditional chocolate, walnut, or chocolate chip maybe. Also a big bowl of fruit salad would be nice and healthy. Honestly, with so much savory food there, people will likely be stuffed already and probably not so much into desert as you would think ***crosses fingers***!!!

For the kids rice crispy squares and some fast and easy shortbread cookies with flavors such as lemon,almond or rum.Fruit salad is a great one too,or even a large platter with all sorts of cut fruit.Banana bread or carrot bread would be nice too. Good luck and have fun

What a nightmare. Glad it's you not me.

We almost always serve fresh fruit platters down here.

If you scatter it with some yummy chocolate chunks too, there's your dessert.

Also a lot of people don't even eat dessert, downunder anyway.
