With warmer weather upon us (mostly... anybody else having an unusually cold spring?)... it's that time of year where people are having more parties and get-togethers. Or at least that's true for us. So here are 16 Simply Irresistible Party Perfect Desserts!
Over the past few weeks (or a couple of months), it seems like we've had some sort of "event" going on every single week. And honestly, I'm all out of fresh ideas for desserts.
Just this weekend, we're having a joint birthday party for two of my kiddos, Sarah & Noah, and I've invited 30ish people over for lunch on Sunday. In addition to that, the hubs is working overtime and won't be home to help prep for the event. (deep breath!)
Can anybody guess how stressed out I am and how long my to-do list is? Yeah... that long.
But my kids are worth it and I honestly love having family and friends in my home... I'm just not loving having to do all the work without my awesome husband.
So... the desserts. While I plan to do small cakes for each of the kids, I also want to have a crowd-pleasing dessert on hand (because my family is over all the cake).
This seemed like a perfect time to share a few favorites from around the interwebs. Some of these I've tried and some I haven't but I'm certain you'll find something you'll love on this list. A dessert that will be perfect for your party or get-together!
I've made notes on a few of these desserts... the first one being my favorite by a long shot!
