All of our dessert mixes are made with cream cheese, and whipped topping such as Cool Whip. And they freeze beautifully after you prepare the recipe! All of our samples we serve at festivals and craft shows have been frozen to prove this fact. MAKE UP SEVERAL OF OUR RECIPES AT THE SAME TIME AND KEEP THEM IN YOUR FREEZER. Great convenience and delicious taste. One of the great things about our dessert dips is that these are not ordinary flavors you find in many places. These are unique flavors that are a great change of pace from the ordinary chocolate and vanilla type desserts. We will be coming out with more flavors soon, so keep checking our website for them. In fact, we would love to hear some feedback from you as to what new flavors you would like to have available. Shoot us an email with some of your favorite flavors. TAKE A LOOK AT ALL THE POSSIBILITIES! DESSERT DIPS AND FRUIT DIPS - These mixes are a natural for creating marvelous dessert dips and fruit dips. SERVING SUGGESTIONS - If you are making a dip, serve with animal crackers, graham crackers, or fresh fruit such as apples, orange slices, pears, peaches, cantaloupe, grapes, etc. There are also two other relatively new products on the market that are wonderful too. One of the most popular ways of serving your dip is with these bite sized, graham cracker "dipping sticks". They are made just for this purpose. Your dip will taste like a cheesecake with graham cracker crust. Another product available are mini, bite sized Vanilla Wafers. They are about the size of a dime and are wonderful. If you are having a party, we suggest at least two batches of dip. You can try two different flavors with two different serving ideas, such as one dip with dipping sticks and one with mini Vanilla Wafers. Here are more good ideas! Fill tart shells with our dessert dips and then add some of the toppings below. The dips also act a great filling for cannoli or cream puffs. Another idea great for parties is to buy these paper "mini paper bowls" similar to cupcake baking liners. I think they are used for serving mints or nuts at social events. Put a full sized Vanilla Wafer in the bottom of one, fill it with our dessert dip and top it off with one of the toppings listed below in TIPS. Wow, is it ever good. Try two or more different flavors and toppings. Your guests will rave about them! CHEESECAKES - One prepared package of mix will fill a 9" graham cracker pie shell. It will be level at the top of the crust, but not mounded high. The toppings you use will add beauty to your cheesecake. (See TOPPINGS below under TIPS.) You can make our cheesecakes with cream cheese and Cool Whip or 16 oz. of cream cheese only, if you want a thicker consistency. If you don't use the Cool Whip, you may wish to add some sugar to the final product to make up for the sweetness that the Cool Whip normally provides. Artificial sweetener can also be used, if needed. SPREADS - Spreads are made the same as cheesecakes, above - with or without Cool Whip, depending on how thick you want the spread to be. I suggest using the Cool Whip version. If you use all cream cheese, you may want to add some sugar or artificial sweetener to the product for added sweetness. These spreads are fantastic on bagels, waffles, nut breads, toast, muffins, cookies, graham crackers, and pancakes. Use them between cake layers and as icing for an unbelievable Boston Cream Pie! CHEESE BALLS - For a cheese ball, you will want to use all cream cheese (16 oz) - no Cool Whip. You may wish to add some sugar or artificial sweetener, if you feel you need it. Keep it in the refrigerator for four hours. Roll in a TOPPING listed below, or sprinkle a topping on top of the cheese ball. Great with fruit slices, butter cookies, chocolate covered graham cracker cookies or regular graham crackers. CREAM PIES - Use both cream cheese and whipped topping for this recipe. You may also freeze the pie and serve it semi-thawed if you like it that way. I like my cream pies mounded high. One prepared package of mix will bring a 9" graham cracker (or chocolate cookie) pie shell to the top of the crust. If you wish to have a higher mounded pie, as I do, use another half batch of mix. (You can freeze the other half.) Another option for a higher mounded pie with our Banana Cream Pie dessert mix, is to add one to one and a half bananas - sliced, and put into you finished pie filling. Fold it in gently and it adds enough extra volume to fill the pie shell with a nice high mound. With our other dessert mix flavors, you can add many of the TOPPINGS listed below to create a higher pie or just because it adds another delicious flavor to your wonderful pie. PARFAITS - What a dazzling display of color and flavor you can make with parfaits using our dessert dips. Add two or more flavors of dessert dip, alternating between layers of whipped topping, fresh berries, chunks of pound cake, and whatever else your imagination dictates. Use some of the TOPPINGS listed below and you can't go wrong. MOUSSE - The easiest way of all to serve our delicious dessert dips. Just mix them up with cream cheese and whipped topping and put them in serving dishes with a TOPPING listed below. Grab a spoon and get ready for the compliments. CAKE FROSTING - I met a lady at a craft show that told me she uses my dessert mixes as a cake frosting. The cream cheese and whipped topping version is the perfect consistency for luscious cake frosting. It adds a whole new dimension to your cakes. It's kind of like a Boston Cream Pie, but it's a cake. And remember, you can freeze them. What a great idea. TIPS TOPPINGS - There are many things you can use to top your delicious desserts. They include mini chocolate chips, (also available in peanut butter, butterscotch and white chocolate chips) shredded coconut, Heath Bar pieces, Reese's Pieces, crushed candy bars such as Nestle's Crunch, M&M's, crushed graham crackers, Cool Whip or other dairy topping, fresh fruit, candy sprinkles, crushed nuts, and much more. SERVING SUGGESTIONS If you are making a dip, use animal crackers, graham crackers, ginger snaps, chocolate covered graham cracker cookies or fresh fruit. There are also two other relatively new products on the market that are wonderful too. One of the most popular ways of serving your dip is with these bite sized, graham cracker "dipping sticks". They are made just for this purpose. Your dip will taste like a cheesecake with a graham cracker crust. Another product available are mini, bite sized Vanilla Wafers. They are about the size of a dime and are wonderful. If you are having a party, we suggest at least two batches of dip. You can try two different flavors with two different serving ideas, such as one dip with dipping sticks and one with mini Vanilla Wafers. LIGHT OR FAT FREE WHIPPED TOPPINGS - If you are using one of our recipes that call for whipped topping (Cool Whip, etc.), be aware that "light" or fat free whipped toppings produce a much thinner product than regular toppings. It tastes fine, it just isn't as thick or stiff, and won't stand up well on your plate when it's sliced. It will be more like pudding. If fat content is a factor, there is a way around this problem. Make it with light or fat free topping and then freeze it. (Again, this product freezes beautifully.) Let it thaw about 15 - 20 minutes or until it is easy to slice, but still partially frozen. SERVE IMMEDIATELY. This semi-frozen state allows the slices to stand up on your plate. However, don't let it thaw completely or you've defeated the whole purpose of freezing it. Regular whipped topping always works best if fat content is not a factor, but either way is delicious. FAT FREE OR LIGHT CREAM CHEESE AND WHIPPED TOPPING WORKS FINE FOR THESE RECIPES.
