Sweet Treats for the Perfect Family BBQ

Sweet Treats for the Perfect Family BBQ

Summertime brings with it the perfect opportunity to get friends and family together. Why not make the most of those slightly longer days and warmer evenings by hosting the perfect family BBQ.

As idyllic as it all sounds, we all know that cooking for the whole family can often prove very time consuming. We end up spending far too much time organising the food and drink rather than enjoying the atmosphere.

Here we have gathered a couple of effortlessly tasty solutions for you to try. These delicious treats won’t take long to prepare whilst keeping everyone’s sweet tooth satisfied!

Pomegranate Syrup Meringue

Now one for the adults! When ice just won’t do, why not add fruit ice cubes or ice lollies to your bubbly? These Prosecco popsicles are made similarly to the kids’ fruit ice pops, so won’t take up any more of your time. Also, once the popsicles have melted, they make a refreshing Bellini!
