Peanuts and Entertaining

Desserts are the most eagerly awaited course in all meals. In the restaurant industry, desserts make the last impression and can ultimately make or break your relationship with your customers. Here are a few simple but mouth-watering ideas that will get customers coming back to you for more.

  • Mason jar desserts: Mason jar desserts are easy to make and store, and because the jars are part of the charm, they can be presented to your customers as is without any additional fancy plating. Mix graham crackers, sweetener and cocoa powder in a food processor to make the crust. Then, add any kind of cream for the filling and a top layer of chocolate to finish it off. Make the filling with peanut butter and soft/silken tofu for a healthy, vegan twist.
  • Healthy layered desserts: This is another easy and nutritious recipe that can be served in style. First, make oatmeal cookies. Then, prepare a filling by combining butter, peanut butter and powdered sugar in a mixer. Finally, create mini oatmeal cookie sandwiches by spreading a generous layer of filling in between two cookies, and then stack a few together to create a tower.
  • Peanut butter cup s’mores: This twist on a fireside favourite is ready in mere minutes. The addition of peanut butter is sure to please the palate, and using chocolate peanut butter cups takes the s’mores experience to a whole new level. Simply place one toasted marshmallow and three mini peanut butter cups on a piece of graham cracker and top it with a second cracker. Squish together, and voila – a quick and delicious dessert with a nutty twist!
