Prepare these easy make-ahead desserts—ice cream desserts, berry-topped cheesecakes, cream pies and chocolate tortes—in 30 minutes or less, then pop in the freezer or refrigerator the day before parties and potlucks.
My mother-in-law gave me a cooking lesson when I first got married: "Anything tastes good if you put enough butter, chocolate or cream in it." This cake has two out of three and proves she was right. Sometimes I use chocolate graham crackers and stack up the layers in a 9x9 pan. —Bee Engelhart, Bloomfield Township, Michigan
