The sun is shining, and it’s the perfect day for a picnic! As you prepare your basket, it’s essential to include some scrumptious, picnic treats that will satisfy your cravings and make your outdoor dining experience extra special.
In this article, we’ll share our top five sweet picnic snack ideas that are both delicious and easy to pack. Let’s tuck in!
1 Indulge in Some Chocolate Dipped Fruit
Fresh an dried fruit is always a picnic classic, but why not add a little luxury to your spread? Dip your favourite fruits like strawberries, bananas, or mandarin oranges into melted chocolate and pack them into a container. Once the chocolate has hardened, you’ll enjoy a sweet, juicy, and indulgent treat in the sun. Or strapped for time Walnut Tree has some wonderful orange slices dipped in dark chocolate ready to go.
2 Treat Yourself to Some Cookies
Cookies are the ultimate picnic snack because they’re easy to pack and can be prepared beforehand. Choose your favourite recipe or opt for classic chocolate chip cookies. Add some nuts, dried fruit, or even a pinch of sea salt to take them to the next level. Pack them into a container or wrap them up in parchment paper for a snack that’s easy to grab and go.
3 Try Cheesecake Jars
Cheesecake jars are a fantastic option if you’re looking for something more substantial for your sweet tooth. Simply layer crushed graham crackers, cheesecake filling, and fresh fruit in a small mason jar for a delicious dessert that’s easy to pack and transport. Customise them with your favourite fruits and toppings for a beautiful and tasty treat.
4 Don’t Forget Rice Krispie Treats
Rice Krispie treats are a classic childhood favourite that still holds up today. They’re quick and easy to make, and you can cut them into small squares to pack in a container. For an extra special twist, add dried cranberries, chocolate chips, peanut butter, or rainbow sprinkles for a delicious and nostalgic snack
5 Try Some Berry Skewers
Fresh berries are a healthy and refreshing snack, but you can make them even more fun by skewering them onto wooden sticks. Mix and match your favourite berries like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries for a colourful and flavourful snack. Add some cheese, melon, or dried pineapple cubes or dried apricots to the skewer for a savoury twist.
