I don’t care what party I go to I always, ALWAYS look forward to the interesting desserts that are offered.  Here are a couple of non-traditional choices.  S’mores and Cotton Candy.  Pair them with a rustic or carnival theme and you have a show stopper.
S’Mores Bar

How cool would a S’more bar be at your reception?  Make it even better by doing some DIY marshmallows and packaging them up as favors.  This recipe looks amazing and fairly easy to do.  The instructions are light hearted and clear.  Pair these with the unexpected Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or York Peppermint patties for something even better.
