In addition to the menu on my two previous posts, I will be serving the following desserts, for Super Bowl Sunday. They are all very easy to make,  divinely delicious, and will have your guests begging for more!  They would also be perfect for Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras parties, or just anytime you're in the mood for something totally decadent. And all worth the calories, cher! Enjoy!
