I can’t believe it is officially summer! This year has gone by SO fast already. Our mid-year planners are about to start shipping in the next few weeks! It’s been so exciting to see the response for the two new covers, White Marble and Floral. So many have asked about the White Leatherette and Coco Stripes, and yes, we have both! That being said, it is almost JUNE which means the summer kickoff is about to take place. I wanted to put together a few ideas for 5 Memorial Day dessert ideas to make your cookouts and picnics something to remember. Take a look below at some of my favorites!
Berry Cherry Custard Pie. This pie by The Baker Chick looks absolutely amazing! What I love about this recipe is that it has a custard mixed in to take the tartness away from the flavor of the berries. AND it adds in a little white for the red, white, and blue!
Patriotic Pretzels. Who doesn’t love a good chocolate covered pretzels? They are so easy to pop in your mouth. You can get really creative with these ones depending on what kind of sprinkles you buy! I’ve seen mini star sprinkles before which would be a cute addition to the theme!
Stars and Stripes Cupcakes. Fruetcake always has the best suggestions for desserts! These cupcakes are easy and simple that can be a fun activity with the kids. All you need is some store bought ingredients and you are good to go! Nothing fancy but it looks like you really put time and effort into making them!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Flag Dip. Okay, who else makes cookies and it’s only half the dough that ends up in the oven? Guilty. This is probably everyone’s dream come true, which means this is the dessert that will be a crowd pleaser. It’s a cookie dough dip that doubles as a flag with the M&Ms that you put on it! Keep this in mind for other holidays as well!
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. Ending with a semi-healthy dessert! Instead of doing strawberry shortcake, these little cheesecake stuffed strawberries are fairly easy to make. And really cute for the dessert table. Sometimes after picnic food, a refreshing fruit dessert is much needed!
I want to hear from you! What are some recipes you like for Memorial Day dessert ideas?
