When we think of Mother’s Day, we often think of brunch. Yet, what do most mothers REALLY want? Dessert. What mom doesn’t love indulging in a piece of chocolate cake or a pint of ice cream? There’s probably not a dessert that a mom would turn down. And, who can blame them. Think of all the things moms do? Don’t they (we) deserve a delicious treat?
There are so many wonderful desserts listed below. Whether your mom (or you) loves fruity or chocolatey desserts, you’ll find something she’ll love. Of course, no one ever said you couldn’t make something for yourself. You could even get in the kitchen with the kiddos to make a dessert. Or, you could send a link to the recipe you like best to your husband and hope he gets the hint.
These desserts don’t have to be reserved for Mother’s Day. You could make these desserts for any special occasion or just because. Go through and see which recipes look good to you and bookmark them. Whenever you want a new recipe to try, go through your bookmarks and see which recipes match the ingredients you have on hand.
If you’re looking for a dessert to serve after a fancy Mother’s Day dinner, these are great options. Invite your mother over for a delicious dinner rather than taking her out to brunch this year. It will be a great way for you to both spend the holiday together. If you’re short on funds, this is an affordable way to celebrate.
Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be the same year after year. Brunch may be the traditional way to spend time with your mother, but why not do something different? You could even show up at her home with her favourite home cooked meal and one of these desserts. It will be a great surprise and awesome gift.
