Default I need an easy/tasty desert recipe

I am doing a fundraiser on Weds and am bringing deserts to sell. What's a good idea to bring? Something not too messy and that are either individual (like cookies) or can be chopped up easily into individual servings.

I was honestly just going to do a brownie mix or cookies or something but I don't know which ones are good. I want to make something people will actually like. I am soooo not a cook.

I just made this in the form of cupcakes over the weekend and they're some of the BEST cupcakes I've ever made, and I bake a lot! They're easy, with a box mix base + additional ingredients, and they're so incredibly rich and moist that I didn't even frost them, which cuts down on the messiness.

Cake balls are very yummy and could do a couple to a serving?

I also really like orange brownies, they are always a big hit when I make them

Of course your standard brownies, cookies, cupcakes etc are all great too

Make some canoli filling and mix in dried, fresh or frozen (strain out any liquid) fruit then put in tart shells.

Recipe for filling:
1 (15oz) package of ricotta (dry and strained)
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup cream cheese (plain and NOT fat free)
1/2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract (I put a drop more for flavor)
1/2 tsp. orange or lemon extract (optional)

This will fill about 24 tart shells. It's super easy and quick, especially if you put the filling in a ziploc and cut off a corner to squeeze out.

Also you can make these the night before and refrigerate so they are ready to go the next day. Use wax paper between layers and garnish as you set them out.

Cake balls are a great idea. Super easy to make, fun to decorate, no mess eating. It's a small treat, so people who are weight conscious might feel its okay to indulge in one, and others who don't care, can eat a few!

I use this recipe for Rocky Road Squares all the time....super easy, and it always get compliments.

And....it's really rich, so you can cut it into small squares and it will go a long way.

Get some store bought filo dough and make little filo cups in a cupcake tin. Bake, then fill with cheesecake filling. NOM.



Regular cupcakes are great too. I made rainbow ones for my kids' birthday party last weekend. Like these, they look really fancy but they're really simple to do:



Meringue cookies are really simple too. You can make those and advertise them as no fat. Since they have so much air they're really low calorie too which is appealing to a big demographic of people. And if you avoid cross contamination, gluten free! WIN!
