    1 package of Kool-Aid
    ½ 8 oz carton of whipped cream
    1 9-inch graham cracker crust
    1 can of condensed milk
    Crumbled graham cracker and mint leaf for garnish can make a delicious Kool Aid Pie! It's not hard to make and doesn't take long either.

    Fresh fruit-based desserts are the easier to whip up. Here are a couple of ideas:

    Caramelized oranges - essentially fresh peeled oranges, sliced and a simple caramel poured over. (The recipe is on my hub about Oranges.)

    Grapefruit "soup":
    Peel 4 - 5 grapefruits. Cut the segments from the membranes.
    Put the grapefruit segments into an ovenproof bowl with sugar syrup (made by simmering 100g sugar in 100ml water until the sugar is dissolved. Cool before using.)
    Whip 300ml cream with  3 egg yolks.
    Pour the cream mixture over the grapefruit segments.
    Sprinkle flaked almonds over. Dust with icing sugar.
    Place under a grill or in a very hot oven until the topping browns.
    Serve straight away.

    Hope this helps.

    A really quick chocolate pudding:

    8 oz carton of heavy cream
    3.5 oz dark chocolate (or milk if you don't want a strong taste)
    2 egg whites
    tsp vanilla extract
    1/4 cup sugar

    Whip heavy cream in a bowl, along with vanilla and sugar.  In the microwave, melt (don't heat) the chocolate, watching to ensure it doesn't begin to burn. Add melted chocolate to the cream and mix well.  In a seoarate bowl, whisk egg whites to stiff peak.  Fold into the chocolate / cream mix.  Can be served immediately or leave in refrigerator until you want to eat it.  Takes about 5 minutes and goes well with fresh strawberries.

    Baked apple - baked pear. A zap in a microwave. While cooling add whipped cream. For an adult dessert, pour  an oz. of your favorite liquer.    David

    I agree with Russell: baked apple or pear. However, I prepare them a little differently: core the fruit so there's a little space in the center and put a little bit of butter and a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes at a medium heat, or if you want to put them in while you're eating dinner, you could bake them for 20-30 minutes at a slightly lower heat.

    Vanilla ice cream topped with crushed macademia nuts (wrap nuts in a towel and smash with a hammer -- fun!), drizzle with honey.
