Ultimate List of Sweet And Easy to Make Mother's Day Sweet Treats Ideas
Mother's Day feels like it's always around the corner, and while planning an out-of-town trip for your wife or buying your mom expensive jewelry can be impressive, nothing says "from the heart" more than a hearty home-cooked meal or a freshly baked, decadent dessert.
To make it even more special, check out these DIY gifts on our site here and give it a go.
1. Boston Creme Pancakes
Starting your mom's day with a satisfying breakfast in bed is the perfect way to say Happy Mother's Day.
I know making a Boston Cream Pancake can sound intimidating, but trust me, its cream filling and chocolate ganache will only take you ten minutes to whip up. Tops! And even a kid can make flapjacks, so don't fret.
You'll need a cooking spray, one cup of pancake mix, a cup of vanilla cake mix, two large eggs, three cups of milk, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, one pack (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix, three-fourth cups of semisweet chocolate, and three-fourth cups heavy cream.
For the pancakes, make a batter by whisking together the pancake mix, vanilla cake mix, eggs, vanilla, and a cup of milk in a large bowl. Make sure not to over mix your batter to keep your pancakes nice and fluffy. Then, lightly grease a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium heat.
When it's ready, pour a cup of batter into the pan and wait for two to three minutes to flip (or until small bubbles start to form in the batter). Repeat the process and remember to grease the pan as often as necessary.
For the cream filling, combine the pudding mix and two cups of milk in a bowl and let it sit for five minutes.
For the chocolate ganache, prepare the chocolate chips and place them in a heatproof bowl. Then, heat cream over medium heat. When it starts to simmer, turn off the heat, pour the cream over the chocolates, let it sit for five minutes, then whisk it all together until the chocolate is completely melted and combined.
Once you have all that ready, all you have to do now is stack up your pancakes with a layer of cream filling and a drizzle of ganache in between, and your mom will have a perfect dessert to go with her brunch. I'm telling you this is the fanciest and yet easiest mother's day dessert recipe you'll ever make.
2. Flower Cupcakes
Flowers and desserts in one? Yes, please. Don't worry if you don't have an oven at home or know how to bake. This quick and easy mother's day recipe is perfect for last-minute surprises.
If you have kids or younger brothers and sisters staying with you, you can even let them join in the fun!
You'll need twelve plain vanilla cupcakes, one batch of buttercream frosting or cream cheese frosting, natural gel food coloring (go nuts with the colors), pastry bags, and some decorating tips.
To make these colorful and yummy flowers, the first thing you have to do is assemble the cupcakes in a baking tray.
Next, divide your frosting into separate bowls depending on how many colors of food coloring you have, and then fold the food coloring into the frosting. Put the mixture in the pastry bags and start decorating.
For presentation, put the decorated cupcakes in a box, and finish them off with some cupcake toppers.
3. Toffee Banofi Sundae
Who doesn't love ice cream? If you're looking for sumptuous mother's day desserts, this easy recipe is the perfect combination of sweet, creamy, and crunchy. This Toffee Banofi Sundae is the definition of a la mode and is anything but boring.
For the ingredients, you'll need waffle cone cups, vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, sliced bananas, almond toffee brittle, and whipped cream. Sounds like a lot, but all you really have to make is the almond toffee brittle.
To make it, start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Next, line your baking tray with a silicone baking mat or nonstick foil. On a separate tray, roast one and a half cups of raw almonds in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
To make the toffee glaze, melt one stick of butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Next, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of water and stir until the sugar dissolves. Let the mixture simmer over medium heat until it turns into a dark copper color, or if you have one, use a candy thermometer and wait until it reaches 315°F.
Turn off the heat, and using a heatproof spatula, fold in the 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and the roasted almonds. Pour the mixture onto your prepared baking tray, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt, let it cool, and break it into bite-size pieces.
Now for the fun part. Fill the waffle cones with vanilla ice cream, drizzle it with a generous amount of caramel sauce, top the sundae with sliced bananas, almond brittle, and a dollop of whipped cream. Easy peasy!
4. Chocolate Covered Strawberries
How about something sweet and tangy? Imagine a tart, perfectly sweet strawberry dipped in a rich chocolate glaze. Delicious! If you're planning a romantic dinner date for your wife, this classic treat is perfect for capping the night off.
Pair it with a glass of pinot noir, and you'll be having the sexiest night of your life- if you know what I mean. *wink*
All you need are fresh strawberries, 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips (if you're not a fan of milk chocolates, white chocolate chips work too), and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Start by rinsing your fresh strawberries and patting them dry with paper towels. Next, assemble them on a large baking tray lined with parchment paper. For the dip, combine your chocolate chips (or white chocolate) and coconut oil in a microwaveable container.
Microwave in 30-second intervals while stirring in between, until completely melted. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate glaze, put them on the tray, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
This easy recipe works with any fresh fruit. Try bananas, mangoes, or oranges.
5. No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
This guilt-free mother's day dessert recipe is what vegan dreams are made of. These cookies are super healthy and are so full of flavor.
The recipe calls for 1 ¾ creamy peanut butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup (don't use regular sugar), 1 ½ cups oatmeal flour, and 1 ½ semisweet chocolates.
Start by lining a 9x9 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Next, place the 1 ½ cups peanut butter and maple syrup in a large bowl, microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, and mix well until smooth. After that, fold in the oat flour in the mixture. Then, transfer the mixture into the baking and press evenly.
For the chocolate topping, melt the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter in the microwave. Mix them well together and then go ahead and layer it on top of the peanut butter mixture.
Let it chill in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours, cut into squares, and serve cold.
