Are you a competitive person that wants to make a statement every time you show up at a party or other event by bringing the best dish in the place? Or maybe you just want to surprise your family with a strange yet tasty treat? You don’t need to be on one of the many cooking-related reality shows to be able to put together a completely memorable dessert that beats the competition, and you don’t even have to make it yourself if you don’t feel like it… and that will be your little secret!
Keep reading for a list of four unique dessert ideas that are sure to impress!
The name alone is enough to get you interested, but this dessert is only for the brave and only for people with a lot of time to prepare. To put it simply, the oddly named cherpumple is a cake made up of three different layers, with each layer containing a pie of different flavors. Yes, it’s a cake with three pies in it… cherry, pumpkin, and apple. Each pie is cooked in a different type of cake as well, which include yellow, white, and spice cake. This dessert was invented by Charles Phoenix because, as he says, he could never settle for just one type of pie and wanted to have a taste of all three.
2. Funky Limon Tiger
Limon? You mean lemon, right? No. It’s limon because it combines a layer of key lime filling, a layer of lemon mousse, and finally a layer of whipped cream on top, in a deep dish with a baked chocolate crumb shell. It looks like a tiger’s stripes inside when you cut it, hence the name. This is one of Montreal’s speciality desserts that you can order online, or you could try to make it yourself if you feel up to it.
3. Deep-Fried Chocolate Bars
Depending on where you live, this may not be that strange at all. The most common one to start off with is a deep-fried Mars bar, but you should absolutely try whatever else you think may work well. Of course the trick is to fry it quickly so that the chocolate bar doesn’t disintegrate, and you will be left with the crispy batter on the outside, and warm and gooey chocolate goodness trapped inside.
4. Bacon Doughnut
Because it should be common knowledge by now that bacon makes everything better, why not try adding it to a doughnut for a little bit of weirdness? The most common way to do this is to add crispy bacon pieces sprinkled on top of the doughnut. At first it sounds really strange, but when you think about it… combining sweet and salty tastes is fairly common in the food world and is becoming even more popular these days. You’ve heard of salted caramel, right? Exactly!
So, now that your taste buds are working overtime and your mind is racing with all of the possibilities, you can finally forget about making that tired old chocolate cake that everyone else is already thinking of bringing to the party. Be unique and bring something special that will get everyone talking.
