Bailey’s Chocolate Pots

It also makes the perfect addition to any summer fiesta.
Champagne Cupcakes (Vegan and Gluten-Free!)
Surprise party guests with the look of a classic vanilla cupcake, but the dazzling flavor of champagne. Serve Sarah Bakes Gluten Free’s creation at your next go-all-out brunch, and even vegan and gluten-sensitive guests can indulge.
Fancy but surprisingly easy to recreate, this limoncello mousse from Paper N’ Stitch is an Italian’s dream dessert. Using just five ingredients, you can whip this up in the morning and chill in the fridge for a fuss-free dish that will be ready when you are.
For a middle-of-summer party that needs a refresher to combat the heat, have Style Me Pretty’s rosé slushy on the ready. It’s not too heavy, but still indulgent enough for the post-BBQ finale.
Blackberry Cabernet Cupcakes
The berry mixture inside these mini cakes from Baker’s Royale is nothing short of divine. Using Cabernet Sauvignon, blackberries, and sugar, it proves that red wine can do just about anything.

This recipe from Diethood demonstrates that 25 minutes of time can yield a pretty fabulous breakfast party treat. Drizzled with a lime and mint glaze, these donuts are healthier than the sugary and fried store-bought alternative.

Pair these marshmallows from Recipes Made Easy with hot tea for an evening fete, or serve on their own in cute little cups. The best part: you can use any liquid leftovers for future cocktails.
