Patriotic Brownie Parfaits are layered with no-bake cheesecake, fudge brownie chunks, fresh fruit and topped with whipped topping and a cherry.
Now that the unofficial start to summer is just 2 weeks away, we are gearing up for all things BBQ & cookout! Side dishes like salads, no-bake desserts, and dinner ideas for cookouts are top of our list!
I am especially into dessert ideas I can prep ahead like these Patriotic Brownie Parfaits! I love how easy they were to put together using ingredients like no-bake cheesecake pudding, Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix, fresh fruit and Reddi-wip.
I purchased everything I needed at Walmart to make this easy BBQ dessert. While I was there I also picked up some hot dogs and pie as well.
I love a slice of apple pie after a tasty grilled meal? By buying a frozen pie, I can bake it up early in the day, and have it ready for guests by party time!
