Potluck help- General Recipes

My team at work has monthly meetings and we bring food in each time. What would be a good budget friendly item? I'm supposed to bring in a dessert this time, but usually I bring in a side dish or main item. What would be some good cheap suggestions to make? Thanks a bunch in advance!!

    Do you want Chocolate type desserts or fruit based? Do you have any dietary restrictions that need to be met? Thanks; Virginia

    Chocolate is always welcome. THe team is mostly women. No dietary restrictions....at least none that have been mentioned. I only know of one allergy and that is mushrooms but that is easily adjustable for the dishes it would be found within.

    Here is one you might enjoy:

    Marbled Chocolate Cake Bars

    1 package (18 1/4 ounces) German Chocolate Cake Mix
    1 package (8 ounces) Cream Cheese, softened
    1/2 cup Sugar
    3/4 cup Milk Chocolate Chips, divided

    Prepare cake mix. Pour into a greased 15 inch x 10 inch x 1 inch baking pan.
    In a small bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until well combined, stir in 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls over the batter. Cut through the batter with a butter knife to swirl the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.
    Bake at 350 degrees F. until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (25 to 30 minutes). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into (we cut 36) bars; the actual size is up to you, so the amount is also up to you. Enjoy!

    Hope this helps. Thanks; Virginia

    In January there are a lot of women trying to loose extra weight they put on over the holidays. Why not make a desert that is rich and chocolaty but won't hurt the waist line? 153 calories for two 2 1/2 inch brownies!!
