Mother’s Day is right around the corner and no matter how you’re celebrating or who you’re celebrating with, it’s always better with dessert. Not sure where to start? We can help with that! Not only are these desserts delicious, but they’re pretty to look at too! (Your mom or mom-figure will go ga-ga over them and yes, she will definitely take a zoomed-in picture to post on Facebook about it.) Let’s get started!
Individual Raspberry Mousse Charlottes
Not only do we love the taste of Charlottes, but we love the look of them as well. (Come on, they’re precious!) While they sound pretty fancy, a Charlotte is just a vessel of ladyfinger cookies for mousse, but way tasty nonetheless. This particular recipe includes another recipe for making your own ladyfingers (depending on where you’re located in the world will determine if you can find them at your local grocer!) But if you’re one of the lucky ones, you can absolutely buy them to make your Charlottes with! Mom will love the effort you made, and the look of the finished product, and don’t even get us started on the taste. Get the full recipe here!
Churro Ice Cream Bowls
Did you know that, as an adult, you can simply make bowls out of churros and that is perfectly acceptable? Everyone will go bananas over these bowls and the best part is once you have the bowl made, all you have to do is scoop ice cream into it, add whatever toppings you want, and voila! You’re done.

Key Lime Pie Shooters
Frankly, dessert shots are the only shots we care about and these key lime pie shots are perfect for spring and summer! It’s the perfect serving if Mom (or you!) is the type to need a little something sweet at the end of a meal. This recipe is, of course, for key lime, but you can turn just about any pie flavor into a dessert shot, so don’t be afraid to get a little crazy! Apple? French silk? Cherry? Let Mom be the judge.

Mini Brioche Doughnuts
We know what you’re thinking: mini brioche doughnuts? Sounds good! But we aren’t ending this with some plain old doughnut, these mini doughnuts are filled with a creamy and delicious whipped Greek yogurt and honey filling then topped with the berry of your choice, and served in an egg carton. Okay, you don’t have to serve them in an egg carton, but how adorable and eclectic do they look? We just can’t get over it and we don’t think the mom in your life will either.
