I didn’t have time to make a fancy dessert for our Easter guests two weeks ago. We’d been out of town, arriving home late the night before. Knowing this ahead of time, I’d bought ice cream. Boring and not very Eastery. But…
Sunday morning before church, I baked some Brownies and sliced some strawberries. Once we arrived home, I made some Homemade Hot Fudge and whipped some cream. Thus (I like saying “thus”) – after we cleared the table of the wonderful (and also simple) Easter dinner, the boys helped me carry the following out to the table:
- A Plate of Fresh Homemade Brownies
- Store-bought Ice Cream (eh, ya can’t always make it homemade)
- Homemade Hot Fudge
- Sliced Strawberries
- Freshly Whipped Cream
As each item appeared on the table, our guests (5 college students) gasped – especially when the hot fudge came out. It was like I had spent hours on a fancy dessert and presented them with a one-of-a-kind treat. Dude, it was just brownies and ice cream. But hey, when you put all these simple treats together, they really do make something special.
So the moral of this story is this: If you need a special dessert for company, but you don’t have a lot of time, consider preparing a Brownie Sundae Bar. Your guests will love it and you will too.
What else would you add to your Brownie Sundae Bar? I’m thinking nuts, other fruit, chocolate chips….
P.S. This is not a low sugar dessert. ;)
