If you are planning on taking part in the celebration of Cinco de Mayo, then take a look at some of these delicous desserts that are sure to sweeten your fiesta! From churros to sombreros, these treats will inspire you to add a little extra flair to your dessert table.


  • Oreos are always a delicious treat and Oreos shaped like mini-tacos? Even better! Guests (kids and adults alike) won't be able to get enough of these mini-taco cookies and with just a few simple ingredients and no baking evolved, they are the perfect, fun dessert. You're bound to have a least one person ask you the secret to making these little guys!

  • Churros are one of my all time favorite desserts, so count me in for these churro cupcakes. This twist on the traditional Spanish pastry is a delicious combination of cinnamon, sugar and cream cheese frosting. That adorable sombrero on top adds the perfect touch for your Cinco de Mayo celebration.

  • These colorful sombrero cookies are a mix of store bought ingredients and homemade elements that make for an impressive dessert option. Sugar cookies make up the base while the top part of the hat is a delicious brownie. Use icing to make pom pom fringe around the brim of the sombrero.

  • These amaretto cream cheese strawberries are a little piece of art you can proudly display on your dessert table. To make the filling, mix up cream cheese, amaretto, and powdered sugar. Then all you need is dipping chocolate and colorful frosting to add unique patterns.

  • If you can't get enough of cake pops, then make these rainbow ruffled pops to add a little festive flair to your dessert table. The colorful ruffled layers replicate the beautiful skirts of traditional Flamenco dancers and with delicious chocolate and vanilla flavors, who could resist?

  • Why make an ordinary dessert to serve to your guests when you could make maraca cookies that actually shake?! These may be the ultimate Cinco de Mayo treat option with little candy beads that can be added to create a replicate of the real instrument. They are the best excuse ever to play with your food!
