15 Memorial Day Desserts and Sweet Treats

Baked Bakery Brownies

Good morning! Can you believe this weekend is the official start of summer? It doesn't seem like it with all of the crazy weather but I am not complaining because it has been  cooler than normal and I know the hot, sultry summer days are coming soon. 

Magic Bars

No Bake Cheesecakes with Berries

We are having a barbeque over the weekend and although my husband is most excited about grilling and smoking pulled pork, and ribs I am most excited about the sides and of course the desserts.

Swedish Almond Cake

Chocolate Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

It is no surprise that I love sugar and sweet treats are my favorite things to make. I will be having a dessert table with a few old favorites but also some new things as well.

White Cupcakes with White Buttercream Frosting

Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

Almond Cheesecake Bars

I always have a huge platter of fruit, cookiesbrownies, some sort of cake, typically chocolate, maybe some cereal treats or an angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. 

Cherry Crumble Bars

Best Ever Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

This week I think I will make a batch of these white cupcakes and frost some with chocolate frosting and some with white marshmallow buttercream.

The "Best" Basic Chocolate Chip Cookies

White Almond Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

If you are looking for a few ideas for your party you cannot go wrong with a mixture of desserts and I recommend making a lot, there is nothing worse than going to a party that doesn't have enough food.

Raspberry Almond Shortbread Bars

Triple Chocolate Oreo Bars

If you have leftover desserts you can always pack them up for you guests to take home. 

S'more Cereal Bars

What will you be making for your barbeque this weekend? Do you have a favorite dessert that you like to make or take to a party? 

I hope that you have a great day and a safe Memorial Day weekend. 


  1. Another saver post. I have to try the chocolate cheesecake bars. And those brownies. I don't know whether it's the flour or butter or what that's a little different in France, but my brownies don't come out quite the same, even with my tried-and-true recipes.

  2. I think I may have to STOP READING YOUR BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!XX
