Dessert or pudding for Christmas - ideas needed!

I know there are a lot of food-lovers here on CatForum, so I thought you might be able to help me with this
This year we will be going to Partner's parents for Christmas dinner. I have offered to make a dessert or pudding as an alternative for people who don't like Christmas Pudding.
So now I need some ideas about what I could make. It'll need to be cold, as I'll have to make it at home and bring it along. I don't want to do trifle, as one of his aunts does a famous trifle, and I just could not compete!
There will be 10 of us, including 2 children. I could do one big dish, or 2 smaller dishes to give even more choice.
Any ideas/recipes/suggestions would be gratefully appreciated!

best wishes

How about a layered dessert in a glass container?

Vanilla pudding, crushed Oreos, Cool Whip, then repeat. This is always a hit with all ages and it serves many. It is also pretty for a holiday dish.

Yes, I would go with easy cool-whip or jello things. Try www.kraftfoods.com for some easy good stuff.

I made this: Lucious Cheesecake Pudding Pie
one day to take to work and it was so good that I left it at home and ate it with my bf. THe only thing I would change next time, is use strawberrys and strawberry jam, instead of rasberries and raspberry jam, because of the seeds. But it was still good!!!

How about a nice gingerbread cake with caramel applesauce or orange spice sauce? You could also make a chocolate cake and serve it with peppermint ice cream. Epicurious.com has tons of great ideas. Great, now I'm hungry.

Pistachio Salad is my favorite. It's SO simple to make and tastes so good.

The ingredients are:
One can of crushed pineapple
Half a bag of mini marshmallows
One and a half containers of cool whip
Pistachio pudding mix

Combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for a couple hours.

Ohmygosh! I had forgotton all about that one. It used to be my favorite, but I haven't had it in years.

Guess what we're having for dessert tonight


*runs off to the store*

Christmas dessert ideas

Yum! They all sound great so far, especially the pistachio one.
But I don't think we can get pistachio pudding mix here
I might try the food hall in Rackham's (posh department store) - luckily I work near the city centre here
Anyway, there are plenty of other good ideas here as well.
Thanks very much, guys!

What about what we call "Cherry Dump Cake"

Take a 9x13" pan, dump (one after the other) one can of cherry pie mix (regular size), one can of crushed pineapple, one box of yellow cake mix, and one stick of butter. Cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 for 45min to an hour (this will depend on whether you have an electric or gas oven).

It's really rich, but sooo good and incredibly easy to make.

OH! Make "Pistachio Cheese Cake" My mom always makes it, and it's green! very festive...

You just take a rectangle baking dish, layer bottom of it with crumbled up graham crackers (the crust) the get JELL-O instant Pistacio pudding... now this is where i get confused... i think you are supposed to mix a block of cream cheese with it... not entirely sure... i think the recipe is ont he JELL-O box though... the you put it in the pan, and top with coolwhip.... or the coolwhip mixed with the cream cheese... LOL... it goes in there somewhere.

If you are interested in this recipe i could call my mom and let you know exactly what it is. It's dessert, it's pudding-y, it's festive looking, it's cold, serves about 12-16 people, and it's so easy to make!
