Dorm Food Challenge: Making a 'snack' for 40 people

smithclay | Sep 26, 2006 05:52 PM

Hi everybody,

I live in a college dormitory and I'm faced with making a snack for a meeting of about 40-60 of the people that live in the same building. I'd like to do something slightly more original than a pan of brownies from a box, but nothing so complicated I'll be spending 7 hours in the kitchen.

I'd really appreciate suggestions for a fairly simple but delicous snack/dessert/etc that can feed lots of people. Salty or sweet, it doesn't really matter as long as it's a crowd pleaser.

Here are two possible limitations:

1) Cost. $20 is subsidized, the rest is out of my pockets. I'm willing to throw in a few bucks.

2) Kitchen. It's a shared kitchen with no dishwasher, a refrigerator and a single gas oven. Basic pots, pans, utensils. No electric mixers.
