Dessert Bars

Sweet and irresistible, dessert bars are as popular as ever at weddings and special events. Use these tasty stops as favors for your guests by having them fill a bag with goodies to enjoy on the way home. Chocolate fountains are sometimes a fun addition to dessert bars. Dip fresh fruit and all kinds of yummy things in chocolate!

There are countless options of sweet treats to have at your dessert bar. Here are just a few ideas:
- your favorite candy, of course
- miniature snickers, or other popular candy bar
- caramel apples
- cookies
- marshmallows dipped in chocolate or plain marshmallows
- graham crackers in chocolate
- lollipops
- caramel corn or popcorn
- rock candy
- licorice
- any type of hard candy is nice
- gummy bears
- chocolate covered almonds


My all time favorite dessert bar has to be this one by Lisa Vorce, via Style Me Pretty. I could stare at it for days its just SO beautiful!

Another take on the dessert bar:
Since cold weather is upon us, consider having a fire pit outside and have a smore bar. Stock it with graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate and any other sweet treat you think would compliment a smore. Your guests will love making something yummy while keeping warm!
