Easy and Tasty Picnic Desserts




Do you have a hard time picking out foods to take on a picnic? Do you want to make a good impression? Then this article is for you. No picnic is complete without a nice, tasty dessert. This article will teach you a couple of picnic desserts recipes that are easy to make and delicious to eat.

Tips for Picnic Desserts Recipes

Picking out the best picnic desserts recipes is not hard, believe it or not. Here are a few tips. First, you want something that doesn’t have to stay cold, because you may have to transport it in the heat. You also want something that is light. A heavy dessert will make your picnic less than pleasurable, trust me. Also, try and find one that is easy to prepare, and not too messy to make or eat. This will save you a lot of trouble and will make your picnic dessert that much better.

Picnic Desserts Recipes: Caramel Chocolate Popcorn

Everyone loves popcorn, and for good reason: it is light, easy to prepare, does not have to stay cold, and is not messy – in other words, it is a perfect picnic dessert. This recipe will teach you how to make caramel chocolate popcorn.

You will need the following ingredients:

– 2 cups of light brown sugar

– 1 teaspoon of salt

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

– ½ teaspoon of baking soda

– ½ cup of butter

– 1 bag of chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk)

– ½ cup of corn syrup (light)

– Popped popcorn (4 to 5 quarts)

First, preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating, take a saucepan and melt the butter over medium heat. You will want to stir in your corn syrup, brown sugar, and salt. After this is combined, bring it to a rolling boil and stir; when it reaches the boiling point, do not stir it anymore for at least three minutes. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and soda, stirring as you go. In another saucepan, melt the chocolate (you can even do this while making the caramel). Then, drizzle both over the popcorn until the popcorn is coated thoroughly. You can either let it cool and eat it as is, or bake the popcorn in the oven for no more than an hour. Be sure to stir every now and then, then remove and cool.

Picnic Desserts Recipes: Strawberry Chocolate Delight

This recipe combines two great flavors: strawberry and chocolate, which are also romantic if you are trying to impress your partner. You will need the following ingredients:

– ½ cup of dark chocolate chips (or milk chocolate if you prefer)

– 1 cup of flour

– 1 cup of sugar

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

– ¾ cup of butter (not salted)

– 4 eggs

– 1/3 cup of cream cheese

– 5 ounces of unsweetened chocolate

– 1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)

– 1 ¼ cup of strawberry jelly (all fruit)

– 1 teaspoon of salt

– Powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The recipe above will adequately fill a 9 x 13, but you can use a smaller one for thicker brownies. Take a saucepan and melt your chocolate (not the chips) together with the butter over a low heat until it is combined and the chocolate is fully melted. Then, lightly whisk in the cream cheese until combined. Put this aside, and beat the sugar and the eggs together in another bowl. Then, take every ingredient other than the powdered sugar and strawberry jelly and mix them in, one by one., starting with the chocolate you just melted. Pour about half into the prepared pan. You will then want to heat the jelly in a saucepan so it becomes nice and smooth (which makes it easy to spread). Take the jelly and – you guessed it – spread it over the brownie batter. Then, place the pan in the freezer until the jelly has set. When this happens, you will want to take the rest of the batter and pour it evenly on top of the jelly, which forms a sandwich of sorts. Bake at 350 degrees until you can insert a toothpick in the brownie and have it come out clean. This will probably take around 40-50 minutes. Lightly sprinkle powdered sugar on top and you are good to go!
