  • These Rhubarb Coconut Popsicles from In Sock Monkey Slippers are popsicles that have it all: sweet, tart, creamy and crunchy flavors and textures. They have tart rhubarb that is infused with Grand Marnier, swirled into a creamy coconut popsicle base that is lightly sweetened with honey. And the crunch? That comes from the fact that the popsicles are frozen, of course! Although if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to savor these sweet treats slowly instead of crunching your way through them while they’re still frozen.
  • Butter pecan is a popular ice cream flavor, and if it is one of your favorites, you might just want to give On A Sweet Sugar Rush‘s Butter Pecan Ice Cream with Bourbon Butterscotch Ripple a try, as well. This ultra-rich ice cream has all the flavors of butter pecan that you know and love with a thick swirl of boozy butterscotch sauce running through it, which makes the ice cream even more flavorful, in addition to adding a gorgeous swirl to all of your scoops.
  • Confections of a Foodie Bride used fresh cherries to bake up a batch of Fresh Cherry Cupcakes. These colorful cupcakes are colored with cherry juice, so they have a natural pink hue to them that really makes them pop on a dessert plate. The cherry cupcakes are a light, fluffy alternative to putting those fresh cherries into a fruit cobbler. They’re finished with a chocolate glaze that gives them a dark shine and adds just the right amount of chocolate to remind you of your favorite cherry cordial bon bon.
  • Pina coladas are the kind of cocktail that everyone enjoys during the summer, not just because they’re cold and delicious, but because they have a way of reminding you that you are (or should be) on vacation. Vegan in the Freezer‘s Pina Colada Crumb Bars capture all the flavor of that classic cocktail in a somewhat heartier format. These bar cookies start with a crust made with whole wheat flour, vegan butter, brown sugar and oats that gives the bars a great oatmeal cookie base. Part of this mixture is combined with macadamia nuts and used to make a streusel topping for the bars, which sits on top of a filling made with shredded coconut and dried pineapple (no rum, but you could add a splash to really recreate the cocktail for the grown up sin your group).
  • A skillet cookie is just what it sounds like: a giant cookie that is baked in a skillet. It’s an innovative way of making cookies for a crowd and A Cookie Named Desire‘s latest skillet cookie creation, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip and Pretzel Skillet Cookie with Nutella is an over-the-top cookie dessert that makes for a delicious after-dinner treat. The crispy, chewy, sweet and salty cookie is loaded with peanut butter, mini pretzels and chocolate chips, and the cookie dough is stuffed with pockets of Nutella that you’ll dig in to when cutting yourself a piece. Serve it as-is, or warmed up with a big scoop of ice cream for a very indulgent treat.
