There’s nothing like grilling out with family and friends in the summer months. The main dishes are often easy to come up with, such as hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled corn, and a variety of salads. The desserts are often plain and simple, such as ice cream or watermelon. Spice up your cookout with a few different desserts that are full of flavor and even a little heat.
A cobbler topped with ice cream or whipped cream is a delicious treat in the summer months, especially if you use fresh fruits. Blueberry or blackberry with tangerine or nectarine slices is a cobbler that you should try for your next cookout as it adds a hearty end to your meal. Icebox cakes are also a good dessert option for your cookout. They are usually made with ice cream and a few other ingredients. The cake is put in the freezer until it’s time to serve it in slices.
Get creative with the desserts that you make. Instead of just making a pie, cake, or cupcakes, consider putting a fun summer design on them. An idea would be to make each cupcake look like a different kind of fish. Put the cupcakes on a blue background so that it looks like they are in a pool or in the ocean. If you want the dessert served to be easy to eat, then a whoopie pie might be just the treat. You can make them with any kind of filling and any kind of sandwich ingredient. A nice combination for the summer months could be blueberry cookies with lemon cream between them or strawberry cookies with banana cream and a light cream drizzle on the top of the whoopie pie.
