I need a cheap, easy, fast dessert for a potluck

You don't have to post the actual recipe, but I have to bring a dessert to a function tomorrow and would like suggestions for a fast, cheap, easy dessert. Thanks

Make cherry jello, let is firm part way (maybe an hour or so) and then mix a can of cherry pie filling into it. Top with Cool Whip - easy, good and cheap.

That is the fave of the pastor of our church and he requests it every time we have a potluck. He loves it so.

But an angel food cake, chocolate pudding and cool whip. Tear the cake int pieces and layer with the pudding and cool whip. You can also add chopped up Heath bars into the mix. Really yummy.
