S'mores Brownie Bars
Don't have access to a fire? No problem. You can bring the s'mores in the form of these rich, chocolaty brownies with their graham cracker bottom and mini-marshmallow topping.
Pecan Pie Bars
The easiest way to serve pie at a picnic? Bring it as a bar. The topping to this treat is just as gooey, sweet, and nutty as the filling of a pecan pie, except here deep, smooth caramel has replaced corn syrup. The crust is essentially one slightly salty, rich, and buttery cookie.
Strawberry Pretzel Salad
This Southern classic combines a salty crushed pretzel crust with rich whipped cream and strawberry gelatin. Sweet and salty, jiggly and smooth, creamy and addictive, there's good reason why this dish is a favorite at church picnics and barbecues down South.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
What's better than cookies? A cookie cake, for one. The brown sugar and butter flavors of a chocolate chip cookie are elevated with shards of dark chocolate and a moist, tender crumb.
Oatmeal Creme Pies
These childhood favorites are even better when made at home. The cookies have the flavor of gingerbread, the aroma of a spice cabinet on mute, and a hint of molasses and vanilla. Coupled with the magic that is a non cream based creme filling, these cookies are great for nostalgic adults and sweets-loving kids.
Sweet Cherry Pie
We can't wait for cherry season, because there is nothing quite like a classic cherry pie. This version fills Kenji's easy, buttery pie dough with a hint of vanilla, orange, and loads of sweet, plump fruit. Don't worry about toting along the ice cream, this pie works wonders on its own.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Here's a no brainer: Just melt some chocolate, dip in a bunch of fresh strawberries, and chill until set. Make sure to pack them in the cooler so they stay fresh in the heat.
These easy drop cookies are filled with a mix of chocolate chips, coconut, oats, and cornflakes. They're hearty and delicious, just perfect for an adventure in the park.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes
A light and creamy Swiss buttercream with a satiny smooth killer peanut butter flavor and a touch of salt sits atop a moist chocolate cake base. The final touch—a dark chocolate dip—protects the cupcakes and makes them easy to transport.
Peanut Butter Granola Cake
A gooey, crunch-coated, peanut butter-granola combination that will easily fit in your picnic basket (if you don't eat it all first.)
