Hubby and I are celebrating our 21st anniversary on Friday. I'm making a dinner of alaskan king crab, baked potato, side of shrimp scampi, tossed salad w/ mandarin oranges, feta cheese and toasted almonds, as well as rolls.

I am stumped on the dessert. I was thinking of making homemade cream puffs with egg custard filling. As delicious as they are, they dont really capture the "decadence" of the meal that I am going for.

I'm thinking of something rich, disgustingly fattening (I dont splurge very often) and maybe chocolatey-gooey. I dont want to do cheesecake..we just had that for Easter and it was too much.

Any ideas? What are your favortie "to die for" desserts? Thanks in advance for whatever suggestions you give!

You can check out the recipes forum, but i think something lemony might go good with that since crab has a fishy taste to it
Here's a few recipes to give you some ideas, i hope they help you decide

Lemon Cheesecake

Sangria Fruit Cups

Blushing Peach Melba Dessert

Creamy Lemon Squares

thank you for the links! The creamy lemon squares sound wonderful. I never would have thought of a fruity dessert.

lol..that looks divine. I've always wanted to make one of those too! Unfortunately, this dinner is taking place at our camp. Even though we have a full kitchen, I dont think I want to spend the extra time baking it there. I was hoping to make something ahead and bring it along. The meal I am fixing is really easy...the crab legs are easy to steam, the potatoes only require a foil wrap in the oven, the salad is done ahead and the rolls will be warmed in the oven.

LOL...I can imagine the look on hubby's face if I whipped up a baked alaska while we were there, though!
