QCompany is coming…and staying! I would like to make ahead a few desserts so that they are ready when needed. Any ideas to wow the in-laws?

Entertaining in-laws can be overwhelming. But with the right tools, which include the right recipes, you’ll earn a 5-star hospitality rating from your in-laws, no doubt. Plus, preparing desserts ahead of time will buy you more time to relax and catch up with your guests.

Some of our favorite desserts have the wow factor and require very little prep time. In fact, you can whip up a Glazed Lemon Pound Cake and have it in the oven in less than 20 minutes. Bake it the morning of their arrival, and the house will smell like a fresh bakery. What’s more welcoming than that?

Another dessert I’d recommend is the Double Decadence Bars. They are a chocolate, toffee and peanut-y dream. Set these rich and creamy brownies out on the counter to satisfy guests’ cravings all day long. They always hit the spot.

The Toasted Coconut Cream Puffs with Salted Caramel Drizzle are delightful. With a presentation this grand and a taste so unforgettable, your guests will be talking about this dessert on many visits to come.

In the end, all you need to know is that sweetness always wins them over.
