It’s time to plan a party for your children and all of their friends they want to invite. You’ve got the decorations, know where the party will be held, and have a general idea of how many people will attend. However, you might not know what desserts to serve that all of your guests will enjoy.
Here are a few fun ideas to consider that aren’t just cake and ice cream.
While this is a popular party idea for adult celebrations, it’s also a sweet idea for children as well. The boards can be made with foods that reflect the theme of the party or with those that you know your children and their guests like to eat.
Nevertheless, the boards can be made with different kinds of candy instead of just party foods. When making the boards, you can put each item in a small bowl or spread everything in lines to make it easier to keep everything separate.
A fun way to serve brownies for your child’s party is by making ice cream bowls. Use a recipe for easy brownies to make the brownie bowl. You can bake the brownies in a cupcake tray to make it easier. Just make sure you hollow out the brownie to fit ice cream, whipped cream, and the other toppings that you want to use.
You can also make brownie pops. Quite similar to cake pops, these are small brownie squares that are covered in melted chocolate and sprinkles.
Ice cream is usually a fun treat at parties. However, it’s a treat that can easily melt and result in a mess, especially in the summer months. You can make popcorn balls to put in ice cream cones to represent the idea of real ice cream without all the mess. Add a little frosting around the edge of the ice cream cone along with sprinkles or chopped pieces of candy that your children like.
The banana split gets a makeover with this fun party idea. You can use diced watermelon, cantaloupe, or any other fruit that your children like as the base. Top the fruit with ingredients that you might find on a banana split, but make them healthy.
For example, you can use yogurt instead of ice cream as well as nuts, sprinkles, and berries. Whipped cream and cherries can be put on top of the split that each child makes.
The fun part of this treat is that each child can make their own dessert, which makes the treats even more enjoyable to eat.
If the party is outside, then make a few “dirt cups” for children to enjoy. Chocolate pudding or cookies and cream pudding can be used for the base. You’ll then top the pudding with crushed Oreos or chocolate sandwich cookies. Add a few gummy worms to make the treat look more earthy.
Another idea is to make a large batch of pudding and crushed cookies with gummy worms hidden inside that children can find. Gummy butterflies can be used in place of gummy worms in case some children find the worms too icky.
This is a dessert that can be made in numerous ways, and it’s easy to put together. You’ll need to melt chocolate before adding it to rice or corn cereal. Then, you need to chill the chocolate-covered cereal.
Next, you need to coat the cereal in powdered sugar. You can then add candy, cookie pieces, or any other treat that your children like to the “puppy chow.”
A party for children is usually fun and exciting! There are games to play, lots of laughs, and plenty of memories to make.
And with a little planning, you can have a fun dessert menu with a variety of treats for all of the party guests to enjoy.
