Vegan dessert for a birthday party

My sweet vegan friend is having a milestone birthday and we're surprising her with a party. I've been tasked with bringing dessert for about 20 people. My current idea is to make vegan brownies and have some vegan ice cream and other toppings for a brownie sundae bar type thing. But I'm not vegan and haven't done a lot of vegan baking, so I could use some help! [more inside]

Recipes with large (at least 1/2 C) quantities of nutritional yeast?

I'm cleaning out my pantry and have a bunch of nutritional yeast that I need to use up. Most of the recipes I'm finding online only use 1 or 2 tablespoons -- does anyone have healthy-ish recipes that use at least 1/2 C of the stuff? No dietary restrictions, so open to vegan or non-vegan dishes.

Twizzle me this

I need to bake something that, somehow, incorporates Twizzlers. I don't really like Twizzlers. Neither does anyone I'll be baking for. Just using them for decoration seems like cheating. What are some creative ideas that might actually cause us to change our opinion? (Exact recipe not needed, just looking for inspiration.)

Bread Maker Math

We got a little Zojirushi bread maker. It makes one pound loaves, which are a bit smaller than many other bread machines. I need help learning to recognize the intended loaf size of online recipes as well as tips on how to adapt them for the smaller machine. I'm also interested in general principles for tweaking recipes. [more inside]

Best mac and cheese mix-ins?

My son turns 12 at the end of the month and wants a 'mac and cheese bar' for his party. I'm planning a huge batch of mac and cheese for the base and then will let the guests dress it up however they want. I'm thinking barbecue pulled pork, taco meat, sauteed onions and mushrooms but would love some other ideas of what would work well. Will be a mix of meat-eaters and vegetarians. Thanks in advance!

Best practices for getting beer from Wisconsin to Ohio

This week I'm flying from Ohio to Wisconsin and back. I'd like to buy 2-3 cases of beer that is only sold in Wisconsin for personal consumption and somehow get them back to Ohio. I was originally going to throw them in my checked bag but now I realize that's a lot of volume and a lot of weight so it'll probably be expensive. Is there a better way to do this? USPS/FedEx/UPS?
