Final Touches: Special Sweets

11/1/2011

The turkey may take top billing, but for many of us, Thanksgiving is all about dessert! We love our Pumpkin Roll with Crunchy Peanut Butter Cream, Peanut Butter Pecan Sticky Buns and Peanutty White Chocolate Snack Mix. It's so hard to choose just one! Why not create a dessert buffet for guests to help themselves after dinner? For an enticing sweets table, try these ideas:

Place boxes of varying heights in a gently curving arch, then top with a tablecloth.

Place dessert platters and trays on and around each box, then scatter individually wrapped chocolates throughout the display.

Add color and whimsy by adding apothecary jars filled with seasonal candies and a "help yourself" spoon or scoop.

Keep portions small so your family and friends can try more than one dessert. For those who didn't save room, fill cellophane bags with the candies and tie with autumn colored ribbon for a sweet take-home treat. Tie on a tag that simply says, "Thanks".
