Chili Cook-Off

My company is having yet again another fun cooking/dessert contest, and this time it is a team competition!  I wrangled a team together to celebrate the Houston Rodeo with our company's Annual Chili Cook-Off.  We had a chili dish in mind but we needed a good dessert to go along with the chili, but what kind of dessert goes with chili?!? We spent the first couple weeks preparing for the cook-off with our focus on chili, we had several chili samples come through over the two weeks leading up to the cook-off and with only a few days to spare, we took a vote and collaborating to get the best of all the chili samples that were brought in.  But with only a few days for the cook-off, we still needed a dessert.  It had been decided that I must make the dessert for the contest, but I still had no ideas of what to make.  I did some google searches for dessert compliments to chili and somebody mentioned cinnamon..... so then I thought snickerdoodles but I had already done that for the bake sale and figured I needed something different that was simple enough to be made on a Wednesday night after work.
