It’s a paaaaaaarrrtay and welcome! I am so stoked to be a part of this awesome tour! I’ve teamed up with some fab blogger friends to invite you to crash our parties! I know right, how fun! We’re all sharing something different so make sure you check everyone out. (links are at the bottom!)
Today I’m sharing a fun, totes summer feel dessert bar! I’ve got a few different goodies along with a to DIE for 6 ingredient cheesecake cup recipe! Whaaa?! YES and they are AHHMAZING.
Here is my spread! (With the smores set-up at the fire table! Mmmmmm!)
Our outdoor dining table ready to roll with cute outdoor plates to fill up and homemade cookie ice cream sandwiches, ice cream sundaes with your choice of toppings, strawberry lemonade, beer and cheesecake cups!
A closer shot to show you all the goodies! Does this not make you SO hungry?! I had a hard time keeping the kids and hubs away from this while I quickly took photos to share with you!
Look at those ice cream sandwiches!! SO good and always a fave.
I rolled some of them in toppings to add an extra delish factor and left a couple regular.
I found this fun vintage bar set at a flea market and it’s perfect for parties! Just place your beverage of choice on the center tray and voila! And how cute are these glasses?! (PSA They hold a LOT so if you want to add some tequila or bubbly to the lemonade in your glass, you can get a nice helping, totally lookin out for the adults here.) I’ve got strawberry lemonade with fresh strawberry and lemon slices for extra freshness in this pitcher ready to pour! If you don’t have any tables or chairs for your party, take a look at party rentals marketplace and rent some out for the day!
My 6 ingredient cheesecake cups are SO yummy! And how pretty are they?
Perfect party dessert, just enough to satisfy that sweet tooth and easily eaten out of the liners. Win win!
Here’s the recipe!
Mini Cheesecake Cups:
2 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 can of fruit/pie filling (your choice)
Place cupcake liners in cupcake pan. Place one wafer at the base of each liner, flat side down. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat cream cheese and sugar until mixed and add 1 egg at a time. Once fully mixed add vanilla. Place batter in cupcake liners until 3/4 full. Bake 15-20 minutes. Let cool until cupcake sinks. Once cool place a small scoop of fruit/pie filling on top of cheesecake cup and serve.
Doesn’t get any easier or more delicious! (I found this recipe 10 years ago and I think it came from some random magazine. Totally a winner!)
Ice cream sundaes! A SUPER easy party dessert when you put vanilla ice cream and a swirl of chocolate around the dish, place out some toppings and let guests help themselves. Ice cream just screams summer amiright?!
Another screaming summer dessert…..smores. I mean really how could I share a summer party dessert bar and not have a smore platter?!
Ready to go next to the fire with skewers in tow. I went with the tried and true but you can play with this too. Use Reese peanut butter cups instead of chocolate bars or a smear of nutella, the sky is the limit with the creativity factor!
Easy to assemble on their own, guests can help themselves! Skewer their own marshmallow and squish together as desired!
My boys were DYING to make themselves some.
An added bonus of the ice cream toppings…….you can add them to your smore! My son came up with this brilliant strategy. Mad props son, mad props.
And there you have my fully decked out summer time dessert bar! It’s all about easy to eat, summer feeling foods that don’t take much time to throw together and make everyone happy. Come on over next time you’re in town and I’ll set you up at this dessert paradise with us!
