These fun-loving desserts might not be strictly authentic, but they’ll get lots of attention at the Cinco de Mayo party. And isn’t that what you’re aiming for? Plus, they’re super easy to make. Let’s take a look.
It takes a mere 10 minutes to throw the peanut butter, chocolate chips, marshmallows, coconut, and tortilla chips together before running the pan under the broiler until it’s all toasty and bubbly. Dig in!

Everything you love about margaritas, but 10 times more gorgeous. And with only three tablespoons of booze flavoring the filling, no one will have to Uber home after one slice too many.
This top-rated baked dessert combines the cinnamon and honey flavor of traditional sopapillas with tangy, creamy cheesecake encased in crescent dough.

Serve these boozy berries with shortcake and whipped cream for a big-kids-only dessert. Prep is super-quick and easy, but be sure to let the berries steep for an hour to let all the juices mingle. What do you mean you can’t wait that long?
These unforgettable cupcakes will make up for that time you broke the thing when you swung at the piñata. Yeah, you remember that. Everyone remembers that.

They’re filling up your Instagram and Pinterest feeds, so why not make this is the year you learn how to make churros? Then you can turn them into crazy things like homemade churro cones to stuff with ice cream. Or build a churro log cabin.
