Bring on your sweet tooth with these decadent, delicious spring desserts. They are all family favorites and even better easy to make!

Each dessert can be used at any party or get together. So get baking… You don’t want to miss out on any of these classic desserts!

The Best Way to Cut Desserts:

Using a sharp knife is best to cut into desserts. After every cut, I like to carefully wipe off the blade with a clean paper towel. Then, this will help keep every cut clean and crisp without making a larger mess in the dessert.

Storing Desserts to Last Longer:

It is best to store desserts according to their directions. Most desserts can be made ahead of time to help with preparing for a celebration or holiday. Each dessert is usually stored in an airtight container to help savor the dessert and then it will also keep it fresh longer.

  • Cakes and Brownies: Store in an airtight container for 3 to 5 days long and then let it sit at room temperature.
  • Cheesecake, No Bake Desserts and Pies: Store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days long or freezer for 1 month. When ready to serve then simply thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.

Delicious Brownies

Brownies are always a simple and favorite dessert. These brownies are not your ordinary brownies though. They have so much flavor and added fruit or Oreos that will then take these brownies to the next level.
