Fun Father's Day Dessert Ideas

Does your dad have a big sweet tooth? Indulge in his sweet treat cravings on Father's Day with some creative and equally delicious dessert ideas. 

If your dad is like mine, then dessert is a must when it comes to celebrating Father's Day. As much fun as a cake, batch of cookies or even a trip to the local ice cream parlor can be, now is the time to really give dad something tasty and creative.

Incorporate some of dad's favorite foods into a dessert made just for him. Whether it's beer, bacon or chocolate, there's bound to be a tasty treat he will love to bite into on Father's Day. Serve them after Father's Day dinner for a fun dessert, or package them nicely as a personalized and inexpensive DIY Father's Day gift. Either way, don't forget about the sugary goodies on dad's big day!
