Chocolate Trifle
I made this for Christmas with a few changes. Instead of fake whipped topping, I used real light whipped cream in the can and left off the top layer until serving. I also poured a little hazelnut liqueur over the brownies as I layered and used chocolate pudding that was already mixed up in containers for ease of prep. This was so easy, it turned out fabulous!

Italian Butterball Cookies
I chose this recipe for Christmas cookies and rolled them in confectioners sugar. They were a perfect compliment to my other more elaborate dessert (which was also easy to make) a chocolate trifle with hazelnut liqueur. I think you could experiment with different flavored extracts, too. I've made them twice and they are becoming a favorite. Thank you!

Sweet Potato Bread I
I used leftover baked sweet potatoes, half & half brown & white sugar, canola oil, added in 1/4 tsp of allspice to the other spices and substituted orange pineapple juice for the water. I omitted the nuts, since I'm on a budget, and it was delicious without them. Since I probably used more potatoes than the recipe called for, it looked like I had too much batter for a loaf pan, so I poured it into a large round cake pan and baked for 45 min until a toothpick inserted into the center came out clean. My husband loved this. The streusel and cinnamon sugar ideas sound interesting, too, I might try one of those toppings sometime. Thanks!
