Top Dessert Ideas to Keep Them Coming Back
A lot of home cooks will spend time making their own appetizers and entrées but buy dessert from the store without a second thought. Although that is fine, there are so many make-ahead dessert recipes to choose from. You do not have to be making dessert and the entrée at the same time. Choose something you can prepare in the morning, and then refrigerate or forget about. Presenting a home-cooked meal from the appetizer to the dessert is something which is sure to wow everyone at the dinner table. Homemade dessert tastes better than anything store-bought too. Some desserts can be served hot from the oven, others are best warm or at room temperature, and some are chilled or even frozen, and a lot of frozen desserts will keep for weeks or months.
There are fun desserts which you can get really creative with, choosing which kind of icing or frosting to mix and match, and what kind of nut, sprinkles, chocolate chip, berry or other kinds of toppings you are going to add. Perhaps you have small kids who can help you stir the batter (and lick the spoon!) or older ones who can help weigh and measure out the dessert ingredients. Regardless of how old the kids are, they are sure to want to assist in some way, even if they just want to be your chief taster! Some dessert recipes are aimed at kids while others are ideal for all the family. Some are perhaps not the best to choose from kids, including anything with strong, tart flavors in it, so you should always use your own judgement when picking out desserts for different people and occasions.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie Recipe – Some desserts are made by combining a number of elements while others are more complex. Take our chocolate chip cookie pie, where we are combining all kinds of incredible ingredients to make it. You have chocolate (which is a dessert, or according to some even a food group!) along with the flavor of cookies, and the pie presentation. This dessert really is the best of both worlds, offering different flavors and textures in every mouthful. Not every dessert with different components takes a long time to make though, and sometimes it is simply a question of combining your ingredients and chilling the result or baking it in the oven. Some desserts boast fruit, chocolate, caramel, fruit, honey, and various other ingredients, and everything comes together for a perfect result.
Strawberry Cheesecake Pudding Recipe – Can you imagine a dessert website which had no mention of cheesecake? Neither can we, which is why we love this category. Cheesecake is such a versatile dessert idea. You can make it as sweet or as savory as you like, choose from unbaked or baked versions, pick out a delicious crumb base or another kind of crust, and choose from all kinds of flavors and toppings, including popular varieties like strawberry cheesecake or key lime cheesecake, or even rich ones with caramel and chocolate, simple ones which have some lemon or lime zest in the cheese layer rather than a sweet layer on top, or even easy-as-pie cheesecakes such as our strawberry cheesecake pudding, made with instant pudding, strawberries, milk and graham crackers for a real 4-ingredient treat.
Easy Yogurt Covered Pretzels Recipe – Not all desserts are the kind you can eat with a spoon. Others offer the crunch factor. Yogurt-covered nuts and pretzels would fall into this category, and our yogurt-covered pretzels recipe only requires 4 ingredients – sugar, pretzels, yogurt and vanilla. These can be nibbled on after dinner with a cup of coffee, or you might like to prepare them if you are expecting guests. Yes, not only will these work as dessert but you can also serve them as a sweet appetizer. Another idea is to use these to decorate homemade cakes, cupcakes or pies. They are so crunchy and delicious. Be careful if you are eating them out of a bowl though because you might suddenly realize the bowl is empty. It is so easy to just keep munching on these until they are all gone!
Southern Peach Cobbler Recipes – If you want to know how they make desserts in the South, head on over to our Southern peach cobbler recipe or check out some of our other cobblers or Southern inspired dishes. There is no doubt Southern desserts are amazing. Popular ingredients in them include peaches or other seasonal fruits, along with pecans and plenty of sugar and cream. So Southern dessert recipes might not be the best thing for your waistline but an occasional treat will not do you any harm! Chess pie, homemade peach ice cream, Mississippi mud brownies, and strawberry shortcake are all Southern delicacies suited to anyone with a sweet tooth, and if you are looking for something rich and indulgent, yet easy to make, consider a sensational Southern dessert.
Easy Pumpkin Pie Recipes – Which dessert comes to mind first when considering sweet treats? For a lot of people, that would have to be all-American pie recipes, especially pumpkin pie which is especially popular during the fall. Pumpkin pie is not difficult to make, and you can take shortcuts like using a can of pumpkin puree instead of cooking and mashing fresh pumpkin, or using a prepared pie crust rather than making your own. Else you can just make the pie from scratch, preparing the crust, filling and decorating it with love so you can make a standout Halloween showpiece and something everyone wants to get their teeth into as soon as possible. Baking pumpkin pie fills your kitchen with warm, spicy aromas, and you can serve it alone or with vanilla ice cream or with whipped cream.
One of the Best Scottish Recipes for Sticky Toffee Pudding – Head over the Pond and you are in store for some real treats. The Scots love their puddings, but of course the word ‘pudding’ in the UK refers to any dessert. Toffee pudding is something you absolutely have to try at least once. We are making our version of this amazing dessert with instant butterscotch pudding, dates, vanilla, syrup, and other rich-tasting ingredients. The great thing about these desserts is they are served piping hot from the oven, and that makes them perfect for chilly evenings when you still have some room in your belly after your entrée but ice cream is not really what you are craving. British-style puddings tend to be thick, rich and sweet, and some people have them with both whipped cream and ice cream!
Quick and Easy 3 Step No Bake Cheesecake – So let’s say you are in a real hurry but you still want to prepare a homemade dessert. Is it possible to whip up something in minutes and not have to bake it? One of the best recipes to choose in such in such a scenario would be a no-bake cheesecake. Opt for a premade crust, a tasty filling and a fuss-free topping, and then you can present something homemade and delicious which does not require hours of stirring or mixing, standing over a hot stove, or other steps. Most cheesecakes still need to sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours but make this in the morning and you can forget about it until you serve it. A cheesecake is great for any season or occasion and you can add some fancy touches to the top if it is for a more formal gathering.
Vegan Mango Mousse Recipe with Pistachios – Desserts should be for everyone, but it is all too easy to forget about the vegetarians and vegans when deciding on a dessert. Although you are not going to put meat or fish in there (well, that would be unlikely!) there are still ingredients vegetarians do not eat such as collagen gelatin, and vegans are stricter still, not eating dairy cream or milk or eggs. However, switch some of those no-go ingredients for vegetarian and vegetarian alternatives, and you can rustle up the most amazing desserts which will suit every palate. Our vegan mango mousse with pistachios is especially good, made with tofu instead of cream, and flavored with cardamom and pistachios for exotic appeal. Finish it off with non-dairy whipped cream for an exquisite look.
