I'm making Tiramisu, mini pecan tarts and a friend is making apple strudel.

There will only be 9 of us so 3 different deserts seems sufficient.

We're eating early this year. I'm making an orange sorbet for dessert immediately after the meal, but I'm making my Death By Ganache cake for the sharing of desserts later that evening with friends. Killer stuff, with the dark chocolate genoise brushed with Godiva liqueur then coated with ganache...

Audeo; REmember that "Dangerous" lable I gave a while back on another post. Well, after this desert (and no, I don't want the recipe. I already know too much ;) ), you qualify as well. Oh how I wish my sweet tooth would fall out.

ROFLMAO!!!

Bug, it is painfully good. But you may both rest assured that I'll not be eating more than one bite of the stuff! Ironically, neither my husband nor I are fans of sweets...but this one...well, I've seen husbands rudely tell their wives to move out of the way!!!

Hmmm...being relatively certain that Goodweed is a good patient, in fact, the very best kind of patient a doctor could have, I just may post the recipe to be annoying...if requested, that is! And I surround the thing with lots of chocolate-covered cherries, mint leaves and raspberries... :twisted:

Can't resist a challenge, girlfriend.

Put yours up and I'll post the Death by Chocolate Torte that I learned how to make courtesy of Mr. Mark Bittman. I garnished mine with sliced kiwi fruit.

After Thanksgiving is OK. I still have to make mom's cranberry glop (and I mean "glop" in the very best sense of the word) as my assignment for the feast on Thursday.

Oooo! Can I get in on the Death by Chocolate thing? I have one that I submitted to a recipe contest (sadly I didn't win :cry: ) that is to die for. I will have to edit the title to be PG but it is REALLY good. Chocolate Raspberry...Delight. I'd love to try both of your recipes too.

Abso-effing-lutely, Alix. The more the merrier. Our duty as citizens of the world is to further civilization. And what could be more civilized than another decadent chocolate dessert?

I will be waiting until I get back from da beach. Others may go ahead if they like.

And I'm hoping that Konditor will chime in with another luscious-sounding creation to add to our collective knowledge (VERY STRONG HINT HERE...)

I'll pick up that gauntlet, bug and Alix! What a great thread!!

Okay, Alix, you go first, because I go on duty in little better than an hour, so no time to type it out tonight. But come tomorrow....!

And Alix, prepare for some comments from Goodweed! He has a documented weakness for that raspberry-chocolate combination and I can't wait to see your retitled masterpiece myself!

It's amazing what we can consume in the holidays! I'll be working my tail off in the gym over the next month, for sure! But then again, I've been preparing, too... :twisted:

Have a great time at da beach, bug!!! Sand is THE BEST pedicure on Earth!! (Especially when one has a mimosa in hand...!)

Calling all Konditors!!!!!
