Host a “Dessert for Dinner” Party

<p><a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-436" alt="chocolatedinnerparty_maxbrenner" src="" width="300" height="225" /></a>When you were six, the idea of dessert for dinner made you jump up and down. And now at (insert age here), dessert for dinner … still makes you jump up and down. Why not take advantage of this simple luxury of adulthood and treat your friends and family to a Dessert for Dinner Party? It’s easy, inexpensive and definitely enjoyable.<span id="more-435"></span></p> <p>Our Chocolate Innovation Team loves this idea and came up with five must-dos for your next all-dessert dinner.</p> <p><strong>1)      Sweeten up your space</strong></p> <p>We’re not talking about sprinkling gumdrops on the table, we’re suggesting that you create a space that is optimal for complete indulgence! Think comfortable chairs, candles, pristine white dishes … you get where we are going.</p> <p><strong>2)      Serve three courses</strong></p> <p>Take a tip from traditional dinner parties and serve three courses to your guests.</p> <p>Appetizer: Serve something simple but flavorful like a strawberry &amp; cookie bruschetta.</p> <p>Entrée: Why not whip up something reminiscent of a classic, like chocolate crepe pasta!</p> <p>Dessert: Stick to a staple and pair cheesecake or tiramisu with a steaming cup of coffee.</p> <p><strong> 3)      Milk, and lots of it.</strong></p> <p>Nothing washes down a moist bite of chocolate cake better than cold milk. Get creative and premix batches with your favorite flavors &#8211; strawberry and chocolate – and serve in glass bottles just like the good ‘ol days.</p> <p><strong> 4)      Play a Game</strong></p> <p>There’s a pretty good chance (okay, 100% chance) that your guests will be on a sugar high after they consume three courses of your chocolaty confections. Help them burn off some energy before driving home by playing a game dedicated to desserts! Might we suggest the life-sized version of Candy Land? Google it.</p> <p><strong> 5)      Give ‘em something to take home!</strong></p> <p>9 out of 10 of your friends (there’s always that one …) will ask if they can bring something to your sweet soiree. Say yes! Encourage everyone to bring bite-sized treats that are easy to transport. Pre-purchase fun paper cartons and at the end of the party, everyone can take some treats to go!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
