Thanksgiving makes the ideal time to get together and have fun. If you’re hosting a party at your home or you’ve been invited somewhere else, bringing a dessert is always a good idea. You can hire a private chef to help you out with this if you’re too busy. At Foodinis, we love coming up with new ways to enjoy this holiday. Here are our 10 favorite, outside the box thanksgiving dessert ideas:

Spiced Apple Pie

Celebrate the season with your own unique take on apple pie. Add aromatic spices to the classic apple pie to please guests. Fold apples in crust and some cinnamon and allspice. Bake until golden. Your guests will love this!

Baked Brie With Pecans

Dessert doesn’t have to be sweet to be good. Place a round of brie in the oven until it melts evenly. Add toasted pecans. You won’t regret making this dessert for your family!

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Update this favorite with chocolate. Buy or make a pumpkin pie. Top with melted chocolate in the oven and let harden overnight. You can never go wrong with pumpkin during the fall season!

Sweet Potato Cake

Sweet potatoes are full of vitamins and delicious flavor. Bake the sweet potatoes until creamy and add butter. Insert in your favorite basic cake mix for a different take on this fall staple. Easy and creative!

Sugared Fruit

Sugaring fruit gives it sparkle and life. Take the fall fruit you like best such as oranges and purple grapes. Dip them in a simple syrup and let sit. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and bring to the party. Quick and delicious!

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Cranberries are the ideal way to bring oatmeal cookies to the modern table. Dried cranberries are widely available and look like jewels when set in cookies. Make your basic oatmeal cookies and insert the dried cranberries in the mix before you set them in the oven. We know this recipe is a fan favorite!

Maple Syrup Cupcakes

Individual cupcakes make a great choice if you have a dinner with lots of kids. Place maple syrup into the cupcakes and bake. Take basic vanilla frosting and drizzle in some more maple syrup. Top with candy corn for an additional festive touch!

Pineapple and Ginger Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is a highly versatile crowd pleaser. Make yours special with the addition of sweet pineapple and zesty ginger. Take the ordinary carrot cake recipe. Spread chopped pineapple frosting in the middle. Gently shave bits of ginger across the frosting. Add candied ginger on top of the cake for even more flavor. This will sure shock your guests’ taste buds!

Spicy Candied Walnut Cheesecake

Cheesecake is easy to make and even easier to customize. For this version, you’ll need a classic cheesecake recipe. You can then top it with candied walnuts. Roast the walnuts in the oven and top with sugar. Add in a bit of siracha for a wonderful kick!

Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan pie is even more fun in bar form. You’ll want to start with a standard bar cookie recipe. Top the bars with pecans and then let cool. Drizzle chocolate on top for even more decadent and fabulous flavor everyone loves!
