easy dessert to go with chili?

Am having a few people over for chili and corn bread tonight. Suggestions for an easy, complimentary dessert?

  1. I like brownies with shredded coconut and almonds as a finish to chili. Ice cream optional.

    1. get some Ben & Jerry Jamaican Me Crazy sorbet.
      It's pineapple sorbet with passionfuit swirl.
      I seriously just served the exact same thing for dinner last night.

      1. Yah, I was thinking something like sorbet or ice cream as well. Defintely something at least slightly chilled. Perhaps a mouse?

        1. something with cinnamon, like vanilla ice cream with a cinnamon-sugar topping or snickerdoodles. Our school cafeteria always used to serve cinnamon rolls with the chili, so that's probably where I got this personal craving.

          1. re: Betty

            I used to LOVE those cinnamon rolls!

          2. Every year for my Super Bowl party I make a huge batch of Chili and Peanut Butter Pie for dessert. The recipe I have is from Cooking Light and is really simple. I like to freeze it instead of refridgerate it so it's sort of like ice cream pie.
            So good!
