Are desserts your job for the potluck picnic? You’re in luck! We’ve got treats for every kind of sweet tooth.

Cookies

Perfectly portioned and finger-licking good. Bring some fresh fruit along too – we suggest watermelon slices or a bushel of juicy peaches.

Brownies

Scratch the chocolate itch with these decadent delights. Bake a bunch and freeze for up to 6 months.

Trifle

Layer cakes and cupcakes are delicious but don’t always travel well. Here are all the flavors cakes are known for, but you can eat it with a spoon.

Candy

Whip up these easy confections that kids and grown-ups will love. Keep them out of the sun to prevent melting—though they probably won’t last long.

Bars

Squares of oats, jam and dried fruit or a burst of citrus – fabulous finger food!

Shortcake

A little assembly required here, but it’s a piece of cake (get it?). Pack all the components and let everyone make their own.
