Five Ways to Make Burgers Into Dessert

5/16/2012

Did you know it’s National Barbecue Day!? It’s actually National Barbecue Month, pretty sure we can thank Memorial Day for that one! And I’m sure many of you are planning barbecues to celebrate, right!? The unofficial kickoff of summer (The official start of summer is on my birthday!) calls for lots of burgers, hot dogs and just about anything you can throw on the grill for large numbers of people. But why stop there? For those of you that prefer baking to grilling (though I prefer eating both.) you can now turn the star of the BBQ into a dessert. Five desserts to be exact! See, America’s favorite food doesn’t have to end with dinner.

1. Burger Cake: If you’re feeling adventurous and grand for your barbecue, bake up a serious showstopping burger cake! Huge, but oh so awesome. Perhaps surprise a very deserving dad with this for Father’s Day?

2. Burger Cakepops: Of course, you may not want an entire giant (but so awesome) cake, so a cakepop may be more your style! These are each made form just one cakeball dipped in many colors of candy melts and sprinkled with non-pareils.

3. Burger Cookies: If I can find a way to jazz up one of my favorites, Nilla Wafers, I’m going to do it. Turns out, they make perfect burger buns! Stuff ’em with dessert-i-fied burger toppings and these are perfect for your kid friendly BBQ.

4. Burger Macarons: A slight step up on the elegance scale, burger macarons! This makes me laugh, the petite and fancy macaron meets the down-home and messy burger. These are filled with pure chocolate, but you could also use ice cream for mini ice cream sandwiches.

5. Burger Cupcakes: Bakerella does it again! Burger cupcakes and sugar cookie fries!? Winner, winner {BBQ} dinner.
