It’s also a time to celebrate with friends and family, and what better way to do that than with some delicious desserts? We’ve rounded up some of the best Memorial Day deserts that will make your holiday celebration even sweeter. So grab your ingredients and get started – it’s time for some delicious Memorial Day desserts!
Cake pops are always a fan favorite, so why not decorate them in patriotic colors? First, heat up some white melting chocolate in three separate bowls. Then, add red and blue food coloring until you get the perfect shade. Be sure to continue mixing until the color is fully blended, in order to avoid streaks in your design. Our favorite design trick is to use piping bags to create the perfect drizzle. Then, add sprinkles and other red, white, and blue confections to complete the perfect handheld treat!
Stay consistent with your gathering’s color scheme with a healthier Memorial treat. Use seasonal berries and marshmallows arranged in a red, white and blue pattern. You can use skewers to hold fresh strawberries and raspberries for your red shade, fluffy marshmallows or bananas for the white, and local blueberries and blackberries for the blue. Place your creation on a platter or use a sturdy vase for a treat that doubles as a centerpiece.
Looking for an individual serving option, but don’t have a ton of time to dedicate to prepping? For this time saving option, try making patriotic jello cups. Use red, white and blue jellos to create a beautiful dessert that is sure to impress. This dessert is a host favorite because you can make it in advance and it won’t spoil- giving you time to set up and prepare the other dishes without feeling pressed for time.
This Memorial Day keep it simple with our patriotic Memorial Day desserts. Plan in advance and carefully select a menu that won’t add extra hosting stress. Eliminate the stress altogether by hiring Party Host Helpers to prep your dishes, set up and bartend.
