3. Reese’s Heavenly Peanut Butter Trifle
Grab a large bowl and get ready to enjoy some peanut buttery goodness. These all-in-one bowls have become popular when something delicious needs to be put together at a moments notice. Cool whip, boxed brownies and instant pudding surround several peanut butter cups in a bowl. It looks simple, but it tastes heavenly.
The basic ingredients for smores are graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. Instead of going the traditional route, mix things up by using white chocolate. Buy chocolate flavored graham crackers for a twist, and you’ll have everyone talking. Smores are flexible as a snack since there are different flavors for the marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate.
Baklava takes a lot of love, care and time – but not if you take a shortcut. There is a simplified version that has fewer layers, no need for the sugar syrup and makes a lot less mess. Use a premade honey and nut mixture to fill buttered pastries of your choice. It takes a few tries to get the ingredients right, but once it works, you’ll never go back to the old way again.
6. Apple Brown Betty
If you like apple crisp, then apple brown betty will be the next best thing. The recipe is similar, but the final result lacks the oats as a topping. Create your own bourbon sauce or melt down some caramel and it will make the entire recipe pop.
7. Root Beer Float Cupcakes
No matter how this treat comes out, it is considered one of the most surprising to guests. Root beer and root beer extract are the main components of this dish. With both the frosting and cupcake having that unmistakable flavor, you’ll create one of the most unique snacks in history.
8. Pink Lemonade Popsicles
Kool-Aid pops were a thing long before the official brand created version. But simply freezing a drink won’t get you the same flavor as an official pop. Add a bit of raspberries to pink lemonade and then freeze the resulting mixture. This creates a flavorful pop that tastes even better than the official version in the stores.
All of these treats are great for holidays, get togethers or midnight snacks. They’re simple to make, and the prep time isn’t out of hand. For fun, add in a creative twist to make any of these sweets a massive hit with your friends.
