We heard your dad likes dessert. Well, to be honest, we heard he more than likes it – we heard he’s over the moon about it. And since it’s Father’s Day this weekend, we were thinking that you might want to satisfy that sweet tooth of his with a delicious homemade dessert à la you. So we’ve gathered together these 5 decadent recipes that are fairly easy to create and will leave your dad with a delicious Father’s Day gift he’ll really enjoy.
Ice Cream Sundaes
Ice cream may sound juvenile, but let’s face it: your dad is young at heart. That’s why we think that having a few of Dad’s favorite flavors, loads of toppings, and fresh fruit isn’t a bad way to go for dessert. It saves you from having to bake and gives Dad something that he might not have had in a while. Don’t want to wing it? Click on the link for some specific sundae recipes.
Chocolate Whiskey and Beer Cupcakes
Oh, hello, Dad’s new favorite dessert. These little treats are everything he could ever possibly want baked into a single mini-cake. Consisting of a Guinness chocolate cupcake that’s filled with irresistible ganache and topped with Baileys frosting, we’re thinking this is a definite go.
Chocolate Coconut Bars
These delicious bars are inspired by Hello Dollies, a classic dessert of the South. Created by combining chunks of chocolate with coconut shavings and crunchy pecans, they’re easy to make and even easier to eat.
Another booze-infused dessert for Dad (but we hear no complaints). The classic pick-me-up dessert, tiramisu, is reinvented with the alluring taste of rich Guinness. Smooth, sweet, and ever-so-slightly bitter, this alcoholic update is one we think Dad will be totally okay with.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
While the name “chocolate peanut butter squares” doesn’t sound very exotic, Father’s Day isn’t about over-the-top desserts, it’s about finding something your dad will go crazy over. And since the blissful combination of smooth, creamy peanut butter and rich, milk chocolate is adored by basically everyone, we’re willing to bet your dad will like it too.
