Let’s face it, caramel is one of the best flavors out there. Everything tastes better when covered in yummy caramel sauce! When it comes to birthday party treats, caramel is always a sure fire winner. Here’s a few of our favorite caramel recipes to get your mouth watering.
Caramel drizzled pumpkin bars
If your birthday party is during the fall, these bars will fit in perfectly. They’re essentially the cake equivalent of a Starbucks pumpkin spice coffee. How can you resist that? The cake bars are topped with cream cheese and then drizzled with delicious caramel. The best part is you can even make them to be gluten free!
Caramel rice krispie treats
Rice krispie treats are a staple of kids’ birthday parties, and for good reason. They’re easy to make, delicious, and are endlessly versatile. Try making your rice krispie treats with a caramel topping, and just watch them disappear like magic from the plate.
Popcorn is the quintessential cinema snack, so of course you’ll want some if you’re planning a cinema trip to see the latest blockbuster as a birthday treat. Instead of the plain standards available at the movie theater, why not try caramel covered popcorn? It’s sweet and tasty, and isn’t too heavy to eat after a meal, either.
Caramel banana shortcake
Caramel and banana is always a winning combination. Have you tried it with shortbread? Make your shortbread as normal, then top it with sliced banana and caramel. It’s the perfect treat for a more grown up birthday party, or even just as an everyday treat. After all, why deny yourself?
Caramel apple cider shooters
For the more ‘adult’ birthday parties! Pour a nip of cider into a shooter glass, then coat the rim in caramel and sprinkles. Then for the extra special touch, you can add a slice of apple as a garnish just to finish it off. They’re yummy, but remember not to overdo it!
Caramel pretzel blondies
This dessert is a fantastic twist on an old favorite. The pretzel adds a salty crunch to the blondie, while the caramel adds that sweet hit. Together, the two flavors taste amazing and will have your guests coming back for more.
Chocolate covered caramel corn
Another fall staple, this dessert can be made in a matter of minutes. All you need is your microwave! That’s why this snack is perfect for birthday parties, as you won’t have to stress over preparation. Just make a batch and watch your guests snap them up.
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? Caramel is such a versatile ingredient that you can use it in multiple ways in your cupcakes. They make great kids’ party treats, as children can run around with a cupcake in their hand, without making that much of a mess. The adults will love them too.
That’s just a few of our favorite caramel covered treats. Try some for yourself and wow your guests with these tasty snacks!
