National Dessert Day is celebrated annually on October 14. This is a day to indulge in that wonderful, sweet ending to a meal.

Desserts can be from a list of many things including cakes, cookies, jello, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding, candy and fruit.

Over the years, desserts have changed from natural candies and nuts to complex souffles and multi-layered cakes.  The available ingredients affect the range of desserts that can be made in each region.  The very first desserts required minimal effort or preparation since ancient cultures were more focused on the nutrition in foods in order to survive.  Now, in modern day culture, there are many more options available in desserts.  Ice cream went from a shaved ice substance with an added flavoring to the dairy based, sweet treat that we eat today.


Go out to a dessert shop or restaurant and indulge in a sweet treat or try one of these delicious recipes. Post photos on social media using #NationalDessertDay.
