Labor Day desserts can be a stressful and time-consuming task for the person hosting a gathering or party at their house. Finding the right desserts that will not take a long time to make is the perfect way to prepare for your Labor Day festivities! Desserts that can take five minutes or less can be hard to find, so we did that part for you. Whether you like something filled with chocolate, dips, cold desserts, or just something covered in sprinkles, you will be sure to find something everyone can enjoy for your Labor Day parties!
Five Minute Fudge
Fudge might not be best for a day outside, but if you are having an indoor party or just staying with family, this is the perfect recipe to try! Add chocolate, butterscotch, and sweetened condensed milk and heat in the microwave. Then add the vanilla extract and pour it into a pan. This will need to cool in the refrigerator. It is great for preparing in advance and having a simple dessert ready for your festivities. Then, when it is time for dessert, all you have to do is cut them into squares and you will be ready to go!
Fairy Bread Roll-Ups
These fairy bread roll-ups are the perfect dessert for someone who loves sugar but is also very lazy in the kitchen. All you need is cream cheese, sugar, white bread, and sprinkles, and you will be all set. Flatten out your bread, with the crust cut off, and spread the cream cheese and sugar, mixed together, on top. Cover them or put a light amount, depending on your preference, of sprinkles on top of this and roll them up. They are the perfect dessert to make if you forgot dessert, or just procrastinated until the last minute!
No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake
For this twist on a strawberry cheesecake, you will need strawberry puree, cream cheese, cool whip, powdered icing sugar, crushed graham crackers, and strawberries. You will be mixing all the ingredients together except for the graham crackers and cool whip. Put the graham crackers at the bottom of a glass jar, pour the mixture on top, and refrigerate overnight. Then, on Labor Day, top with strawberries and cool whip and you’re all set!
Five Minute Dip
Having dip for one of your Labor Day desserts is a sure way to please all your guests. For this five minute dip, you will need mayonnaise, bacon bits, slivered almonds, green onions, and shredded cheddar cheese. Combine all these ingredients and refrigerate for at least two hours. It is the perfect dessert to make ahead of time when you are decorating or cleaning up your place before your friends and family arrive. When your guests arrive, all you have left to do is set it out with some crackers and chips and your dessert is ready to go!
Kiwi Watermelon Popsicles
Popsicles are one of the classic Labor Day desserts that will be a guaranteed success amongst your friends because who wouldn’t want a popsicle to cool off on a hot day? All you need are kiwis and strawberries (of course, you could use your favorite fruit instead.) Blend the kiwi and pour it into a popsicle mold and freeze for an hour. Then, blend the watermelon and pour it on top of the kiwi, which shouldn’t be entirely frozen at this point. Put the popsicle molds in the freezer and take out when frozen! This dessert is perfect for someone who is making a lot of food or decorations and needs time in between every other task they are preparing.
For this delicious oreo dip, you will need cream cheese, butter, whipped cream, powdered sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and crushed Oreos. All you need is a mixer to combine all of these ingredients together but wait on the Oreos. The Oreos can be stirred in by hand so they won’t be crushed up too much. Serve with any cracker or chip you like, or even add some Oreos to the dish for your guests to choose from. Putting this dip out at any Labor Day party is sure to be a success amongst your guests!
Brownie In A Mug
This brownie in a mug recipe is perfect for a family night in or having a few friends over to celebrate Labor Day. You need to have butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, egg yolk, flour, Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder, and semi-sweet chocolate chunks. Melt the butter, and slowly start mixing in ingredients. Chocolate chunks should be the last ingredient to add. Then, once every ingredient has been mixed in, put it in a mug, and microwave. This dessert is a simple recipe to make quickly for a last-minute dessert.
This incredibly easy fruit dip dessert is perfect for someone who hates cooking or baking but somehow got stuck bringing a dessert! All you need is strawberry cream cheese and marshmallow creme. Stir the two ingredients together and you are all set. If strawberries aren’t your favorite fruit, you can try different fruits to mix into this recipe and have an entirely different dessert. This is such a simple recipe for your Labor Day desserts!
Cake Batter Milkshake
Labor Day desserts can be hard to find for large gatherings, but if you are with just a few friends or family, this cake batter milkshake is an easy recipe to make in a short period of time. You will need whatever flavor of ice cream you like, milk and your favorite flavor of cake mix. Blend the ingredients together and add some whipped cream or cocoa powder on top if you like. It is the perfect dessert for staying in with family or going out to the pool with a few friends! Having a milkshake recipe is sure to win over your friends and family on this hot holiday!
