Dessert and Drink Pairings

8 Dec

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is bake delicious treats. I love making cookies, cupcakes, muffins and breads. The most important thing when baking treats is making sure you are serving them correctly. When Clever Girls Collective and Duncan Hines asked me to write about my favorite dessert and drink pairings I was really excited to share them!

Now I’m not a particularly fancy person- or a fancy baker. So these pairings are what I think are delicious but I am sure any culinary artist would be ashamed of them. I don’t drink dessert wines so my drink combos are a little out there.

Some of my favorite dessert and drink combo’s are:

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Milk: This is a given. You are not allowed to eat warm delicious chocolate chip cookies without a big glass of milk.

Chocolate Strawberries and Mimosas: Chocolate strawberries always remind me of fancy brunches- and what is the best thing to have at a fancy brunch? A nice refreshing mimosa.

Drinks as desserts: Why not drink your dessert? Milkshakes, smoothies, mudslides, daquiries and more. If it’s hot outside there is nothing better then a nice refreshing milkshake or smoothie.

Muffins and Juice: I tend to make breakfast muffins- blueberry, banana or pumpkin. I think the best way to enjoy one of these is with a nice glass of orange juice, or perhaps some apple or grape juice. A nice well balanced and sweet breakfast.

Now that the holidays are here you can serve any of these dessert and drink combos together at your next holiday get together. Mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries Christmas morning? I vote yes Santa!

What is your favorite dessert and drink pairing?
