    Default Dessert/after dinner nibbles for Friday night?

    Having guests over and have sorted out dinner, but what on earth am I going to offer them after dinner. I know they like ice cream. Have already previously served them ss choc pudding and cold-rock style options. Ideas?

    We don't usually eat dessert or ice cream.

    What I often do when We have guests or I'm on dessert duty for a dinner party is a large slab of meringue. Then just before serving top it with fresh fruit and cream...

    Cheese and dried fruit platter can also be good if you'd prefer non-sweet option

    Toblerone mousse - light and easy to prepare earlier - put it in martini or cocktail glasses - just take out of fridge, grate toblerone over the top and serve - I do the kids ones in smaller glasses

    Apple pie/crumble is delicious, especially on cooler nights. You can serve hot with ice cream or custard.

    Or even just a fresh fruit platter! Add a chocolate sauce and cream if you like but I always think a fruit plate looks amazing and finishes off dinner really nicely

    You could make your own ice cream cake/terrine. Sort of like this
    http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/2350...-cream-recipes but make it whatever size and whatever flavour combos you like.

    Otherwise a pav is my standard dessert.

    I made this for dessert, served with a rose water chantilly cream. It was delish!
