Hi what would you take to a party to impress people who have never even heard of raw?
I'm thinking about taking a raw dessert or some raw nibbles.
Also the person who is setting up the magazine I mentioned in an earlier post is there and I want to wow her with raw food so I get a regular slot. :D
So what recipes do you use when you want people to have that WOW experience?

I like taking the raw deviled egg "egg-less" spread. I'll locate the recipe and be right back.
With stringless sugar snap peas and carrots, it's yummy. It reminds SAD/CRAP eaters of the insides of deviled egg.

Also, Alissa's Fudge Balls are yum-oh; her nectarine cookies are really good too and nectarines (I'm sure peaches could be substituted) are in season now. Her onion dip is yum-a-licious!!!

I would recommend RawPriestess' brownies with icing. They are great!
Also there are always the delicious cole slaws. MaRaw has some great things on her site: www.therawtable.com
The chocolate pie is GREAT!

It's significantly more effort than the other recipes suggested so far, but I got amazing responses to the peanut butter cups recipe that's floating around here....
One of my coworkers continues to ask for them and I made them literally months ago - and only once! They truly blow people out of the water. (Incidentally, if you have it/can find it, I'd recommend using cacao butter instead of coconut butter so that it doesn't melt as fast.) But trust me, these are amazingly good.

id highly recommend RP's brownies too! they are tried and true - ive made them for SAD eaters many times and they are always amazed! definately with some yummy icing on top :)

or maybe some dehydrated crackers with salsa and cheddar dip? thats super yummy finger food. my bf is a SAD eater and loooves this!

I adore appetizers so I take mock salmon pate piped into either hollowed out cherry tomatoes and maybe sunny pate piped into Belgium endive leaves on a bed of finely shredded red cabbage. Has been a hit at many a potluck.
My recent fav is chocolate pudding--have not done so, but have seen whipped cream recipes floating around--probably would be awsome.
One recipe I do not ever tire of is Alissa's Indian Spinach dip. I make it with a small amt. of ground cashews for richness and pipe it on cucumber rounds as a cracker--soooo good.
