I want to make a dessert for Thanksgiving but not sure what to make. I have a few ingredients at home and don't want to get anything additional. Besides having the basics (flour, sugar, eggs, etc), I have the following ingredients to work with:
peanut butter, sour cream, cocoa powder, cream cheese, butter, margarine, oats, crushed pineapple, chocolate chips, cake mix (vanilla and chocolate), nuts (pecans and walnuts).
I don't need to use all of these ingredients. Any suggestions?

How about doctoring up a cake mix using the WASC method...and make an awesome cinnamon spice cake? Add your favourite spices and maybe sub out some of the white sugar with brown sugar? I love doing a spice cake wih brown sugar cinnamon cream cheese frosting...
Another thing you can try is doing a streusel coffee cake? Using the oats, nuts and butter and make a nice topping .
Hope that helps!!!
Chocolate truffles or cake truffles dipped in chocolate and then rolled in walnuts? I make chocolate truffles every year at Christmas and they are to die for! You just mix melted chocolate chips into cream cheese, cool until firm enough to roll into balls, and then dip in chocolate or roll in sprinkles, cocoa, nuts, or powdered sugar.
Do you have an angel food cake mix? If you mix a can of crushed pineapple with the cake mix and nothing else it makes a fabulous dessert that is not to sweet or heavy. Bake it in a 9 x 13 pan.
