Whether it’s a large picnic gathering, a hiking picnic, or even a simple afternoon tea picnic, no alfresco feast would be complete without a sweet treat at the end.
Sometimes the thought of picnic desserts can be a little overwhelming. We need portable desserts, preferably make-ahead desserts, and sweets that will last the distance without failing or fouling.
The beauty of the picnic dessert is it doesn’t have to be a lavishly creamy affair.
As we say in our essential picnic tips, it can be as easy as a homemade cookie to satisfy the sweet tooth or compliment a hot cup of tea. A simple, yet sophisticated tart that pairs wonderfully with your picnic wine or a rich, gooey brownie that will finish a bottle of red beautifully.
