I just made this over the weekend... it would fall into the category of quick and easy and tasty! One pie serves 8, so you'd need to make 4 or 5.

Fudge Sundae Pie
1/4 cup corn syrup
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. oleo 2 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
Combine syrup, sugar, and oleo and cook over low heat until mixture begins to boil.
Remove from heat and add Rice Krispies. Press evenly in greased pie pan.
Mix:
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup fudge sauce
3 Tbsp. light Karo (I used the same stuff as the corn syrup above)
I actually didn’t know what they meant by fudge sauce, but I thought I couldn’t go wrong with this, so this is what I used.

Spread half of mixture over crust.

Spread 1 quart vanilla ice cream over mixture. Ok, I usually try to follow recipes exactly so I can feature them accurately, but once in awhile, I just can’t help but substitute, like now… Caramel Collision ice cream won over boring vanilla ice cream here.
Freeze. Before serving, warm remaining sauce and drizzle over the top.
It didn’t exactly drizzle (and I warmed it till it was bubbling), so I put it into a baggie and snipped the corner off and piped it on. Maybe I used the wrong ‘fudge sauce’.






Sorry, hope that's not too many pictures... I just copied the recipe from my cooking blog.

It's butter or maybe margarine, but I always use butter. Yeah, I never call it that either.

Good question about the ice cream melting. Is there a freezer there? It needs to sit out for 10 min or so, so that you can cut it easier, but yeah it would start melting after awhile.

To tell you the truth i have no idea if there is a freezer or not. It takes me 6 minutes to get to class and then i would have to wait for others to show up. But i think there might be a freezer. Its at a church building and i know they have a kitchen.

If you make it ahead and freeze them solid, they will need 30 minutes out of the freezer to be cuttable. so if you are serving them upon your arrival, you probably won't need to worry about them melting. Unless you live in a "summer all year" location.

Me, I'd make them cream cheese brownies, or either regular brownies with chopped macadamia nuts and swirls of seedless raspberry jam in them. Easy to make, easy to carry, easy to serve never any left!

How about brownies? You can add kaluha or chocolate chips or frost and sprinkle with toffy bars.

For 30 servings - two tiramisus or trifle. For the trifle, you can add just about any fruit(s), pound cake, angel food cake, ladyfingers or broken-up brownies.

Here's a couple of ideas:

CSC - California Strawberry Commission

CSC - California Strawberry Commission

Or, if you're not a huge baker - baking from scratch...

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Cheesecake

I'd make a pan of brownies and a pan of lemon bars:
