Guests at the bridal tea liked everything about this beautiful seasonal dessert - the tender cake layers, fluffy cream filling and glazed fresh fruit topping. Attached to ribbons beneath the cake were small Victorian charms for the bridesmaids to pull out and keep as remembrances.

Save some room for the meal''s grand finale, a real super-star of a dessert, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie. From Sara Walker of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, this pie is simply divine. Says Sara, “This is always a family reunion favorite. Kids love it!” And there's certainly lots to love; it's creamy and really full of peanut and chocolate flavors. Also, it only has 5 ingredients, and with just 15 minutes of chilling time necessary, this pie's ready before you know it!
I can put this pie together in 10 minutes and just pull it out of the freezer when we're ready for a scrumptious dessert. Feel free to substitute different flavors of pudding mix and candy bars, such as butterscotch pudding and Butterfinger candy bars. —Tammy Casaletto, Goshen, Indiana
With fresh bananas, vanilla wafers and a snappy pudding mix, these creamy after-dinner sweets are shared by Margaret Wagner Allen of Abingdon, Virginia. TIP: You can also substitute your favorite fresh berries or other flavors of sugar-free instant pudding mix.
"Boxed pudding and cake mixes speed up the preparation of this moist banana cake," comments Karen Ann Bland of Gove, Kansas. "It doesn't last long at our house. In fact, my family and the hired men have it finished almost before it has time to cool."
