The Best Sweets for a Summer Street Party


The sun’s rays are beating down on everyone’s roof, and to help cool down and brighten your day even more, why not go for a picnic party where you can indulge in summer-friendly sweets? 

When planning your party, make sure you set up a refreshment station, where you can serve the dishes, and then an eating station, where the guests can enjoy the treats.

Eat, drink, be merry and make the most of the glorious sunshine! If you’re looking for treats that can take the heat, then you’re in luck, because I’ve got just some heat-resistant dessert ideas you need.

1. Macarons

As pretty as they are delicious, macarons are a great treat to bring on your picnic. They’re prepared ahead of time, so there’s minimal fuss and you can focus on the eating! What’s more, these delicate cookies can last up to a week in the refrigerator, so it’s a great treat that you can pack up for a weekend picnic.

2. Lemon Bars

Another pretty sweet and tasty treat is the lemon bar. Again, these sweets can be made in advance, and they’ll last a good few days in the refrigerator. Easy to make and easy to eat, and probably best suited to a hot summer day.

3. Brownies

For a great picnic treat, why not go for brownies? They’re a great mix of salty and sweet, and they go forever – cutting them into pieces and storing them in the refrigerator in an airtight container can keep them fresh for up to a week!

4. Cookies

Cookies are another great treat to go with your picnic – why not try the crinkly edge kind? They’re such a treat, and they’ll go great with coffee or tea.

5. Mixed Chocolate Sweets

Chocolate is a must for any summer picnic because it’s a great treat to deal with the heat – something sweet, something crunchy, something to make you feel better, and chocolate can do all of these things!

The Bottom Line: Start Your Summer on a Sweet Note with a Street Party Filled with Non-Melting Treats 

When picking your sweets for a summer picnic, you want to think about things that won’t melt. Chocolates and other similar sweets are a great choice because they can be stowed away in an airtight container, and they’ll last a while – but they’re not always easy to eat!

Pastries, on the other hand, can melt in the summer sun, so you’ll want to keep them in the refrigerator, alongside some lemon bars, brownies and cookies.

A great way to do this is to prepare the treats ahead of time, and then transport them to your picnic party in an airtight container. Just remember to remember this tip: desserts are one thing, but you need to have some food to go with them!

Remember to have plenty of cold cuts and cheeses, as well as some light salads, so that you can eat something to cool down with. With all that in mind, you can have a great, sweet and sunny summer picnic party!
