Easy Potluck Desserts

This past weekend was Mike's annual hunting weekend with his Dad and Brother, so the girls and I went to Oklahoma.  I had a good time overdosing on The Food Network (we don't have cable or satellite), going to Breaking Dawn with my Okie Twilight fans, and having a wiener roast at Mom and Dad's.  Mom had a couple of church dinners to cook for, so I helped with the desserts.  She wanted to keep them quick and easy this time, so we made Dump Cake and Caramel Brownie Trifle.  They were both delicious.  Just make sure your trifle dish is large enough.  Hers was a little smaller than mine, (although much prettier).  I didn't want to miss out on any of the goodness, so I kept trying to squeeze in all the layers and we had some drippage.  Ha.  It all worked out though and it made it to church without any problems.

Dump Cake
1 can cherry pie filling
1 can raspberry pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix
2 sticks butter, melted
1/4 cup pecans, chopped

Dump the pie fillings in a 9 x 13 pan and stir together.  Sprinkle on the cake mix.  Pour the melted butter on top and sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 350 for about 50-55 minutes.

Caramel Brownie Trifle

1 recipe Brownies or boxed brownie mix prepared
1 8 oz container whipped topping
2 small boxes chocolate pudding prepared
1 jar caramel ice cream topping
1 package Heath Toffee bits

Cut the brownies into small pieces and place in the bottom of the trifle dish pressing down to fill gaps.  Spread half of the whipped topping, half of the pudding, half of the caramel topping, and half a bag of toffee bits.  Repeat with another layer and refrigerate until ready to serve.
