5 Quick and Easy Treats

These desserts are easy and quick;  A collection of 5 quick and easy desserts, perfect for summer entertaining.

dessertsWe went on our first camping trip of the summer last week.  It was so nice to get out of the city for a couple days, and go where the only noise is the chirping birds.

And my stupid barking dog.  Sometimes that dog just will not shut up.

I think we need a muzzle for the next trip.

Anyhoo, Robb and I are firm believers that the food makes the trip.  If the food is not good, or if it takes too much time and effort to prepare and clean up, the trip just isn’t fun.  And we had some pretty good meals this trip.

It all made me think about treats that can be made and cleaned up quickly and easily.  I mean, you don’t have to be camping to want THAT, do you?

I compiled a few of my favorites.  These are treats that can actually be made very quickly.  And when I say actually, I mean, first step in the kitchen to first bite taken should be 30 minutes or less.

Emphasis on the “or less.”

These Buckeyes take just a few minutes to put together.  They are basically sweet balls of peanut butter coated in chocolate.  And there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

The party popcorn is coated in white chocolate, and made any color you want.  A couple minutes of melting white chocolate, and a few minutes of chilling in the fridge are all you need to have this treat ready for any impromptu party or get together.

These Strawberry Lemonade Cookies come the closest to taking the entire 30 minutes.  The cookies are a simple lemon cake mix cookie, while the frosting is made with a fresh strawberry puree.

The No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars are one of my most popular posts ever!  These crazy delicious treats require just a little mixing and a few minutes of chilling to be ready to eat.  If you are a chocolate-peanut-butter fan, these will be an instant classic in your home.

This Orange Juice Smoothie can literally be made in 5 minutes or less.  If you need a quick and cool treat, and you have some frozen orange juice concentrate in your freezer, you can find success with this Orange Julius knock-off.
