Dad’s Day Round Up
Dads. They’re pretty great, right? I know mine is, and I was lucky enough to score a pretty great father-in-law too. I like to show the dads in my life how much I love and appreciate them by forcing them to eat my desserts. They don’t complain. See, I told you they were great!
Want to force a dad in your life to eat something yummy? Here are some dad approved recipes:
Chocolate Boston Cream Pie (from scratch)
A little bit labor intensive, but it’ll be a labor of love because it’s oh so worth it. If you start now, you’ll have all the parts ready to assemble on Sunday. This is a cake any chocolate lover will appreciate, and my dad loves chocolate.
Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes
Not up to making a whole cake? Make these chocolatey cupcakes instead. Make the cupcake part of these Irish Carbomb Cupcakes (substituting coffee for the Guinness if you prefer) and top with this Chocolate Glaze. They travel well and they taste fantastic.
Best Ever Cinnamon Buns
Does your dad love breakfast? Mine does. You should make him these. Then he’ll love you too (not that he doesn’t already, I’m sure).
Key Lime Pie
Besides chocolate, my dad also loves Key Lime Pie. Makes a great ending for a dad inspired cookout, and it’s easy as pie to make. (Get it?)
Strawberry Cheesecake Tartlets
I realize tartlets aren’t very manly, but behind the girly name is a classic dessert – cheesecake topped with strawberry glaze and fresh strawberries. Fancy enough to impress and sure to be a crowd pleaser, they’re also easy to make ahead of time.
If these things won’t appeal to your dad, take a look through the Recipe Index to find something that will really make him feel loved.
