Fresh Berry Recipes That Make The Sweetest Treats

What could possibly be a sweeter treat than berries for dessert? Not much. Whether you pick your favorite berries in season at a local farm, fill up your basket with them at a farmers market, or opt for berries in the frozen section of your grocery store, there are so many ways you can please the palate with these fresh delights. Berries are delicious enjoyed all on their own with a simple drizzle of honey, a sprinkling of sugar, or a fresh dollop of whipped cream, but they can be jazzed up into entirely new creations, too.

We rounded up some dangerously delicious homemade treats that won't disappoint your family or friends when served for a special dessert. From chocolate-dipped strawberries for a pretty addition to any brunch buffet, to a basket of warm blueberry muffins for breakfast, to blackberry cobbler with a buttery, biscuit-like crust for a sweet ending to date night, you'll be berry pleased with every single one of the recipes on this list.

This 3-ingredient berry cobbler will be your latest obsession

Our three-ingredient berry cobbler is made with yellow cake mix, butter, and your favorite fresh or frozen berries. The topping is the best part about this recipe, as its a buttery, crumbled cake mix that's the stuff of dreams.

This dessert is brightly colorful and bakes in only 40 to 45 minutes. Don't forget to grab a slice while it's warm and top your cobbler off with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Maybe even some extra berries would do. Our recipe recommends using a small mint sprig for an extra creative and Instagram-ready touch.

The only caveat about this recipe is you may like it so much, you just might find yourself making it on a weekly basis. But, that's not really a bad thing, now, is it?

Blueberry pie is always a good idea for dessert

Blueberry pie is and always will be a classic. Whether you cut yourself a large slice and dab it with whipped cream, top your piece with scoops of vanilla ice cream, or savor it all by itself, there is no denying how scrumptious this treat is.

The beauty of our blueberry pie recipe is that it doesn't need a pastry top, so the bright blue color of the berries will look great when displayed on your table. The vibrant color is a great consideration when you are making a dessert buffet and want a pretty mix to stand out on the table.

All you need to prepare this delicious dessert is sugar, cornstarch, ground cinnamon, lemon juice, pie crust, and some plump and beautiful blueberries, of course. You will pretty much mix all of the ingredients together and fill up your pie crust. It only takes 45 minutes to bake, so it's a great recipe to prepare and enjoy pretty quickly.

Not only is it pretty, but it's moist and sweet, and undeniably perfect for every occasion. Whether it's a birthday, shower, anniversary, or simply dessert at home on a Friday night with your sweetheart, this best strawberry cake is a recipe keeper.

To make this cake recipe, gather up your ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, milk, eggs, sour cream, and oil. Of course, don't forget the fresh strawberries! Do not use frozen berries for this cake, as you absolutely need fresh. Even if your strawberries are over-ripened, they will be absolutely perfect here!

This strawberry cake deserves to be put up on a pedestal, and don't forget to save some strawberries to place around it for an even sweeter display.

Nothing beats a basket of warm blueberry muffins

There's nothing better than waking up to the aroma of warm blueberry muffins for breakfast. They are so easy to have with your morning coffee when you're having a busy day and have to get out early. Baking a batch and having them on the counter to enjoy during the week is just as sweet as the muffins themselves.

For our blueberry muffin recipe, you will need white and brown sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, oil, milk, eggs, salt, butter, and fresh blueberries. What's better than blueberry muffins? Well, blueberry muffins with a crumbly streusel topping, of course.

Make yourself these muffins for a sweet treat, with a side of butter and blueberry jam, and you will so not be disappointed.

This blackberry cobbler has a buttery, biscuit-like topping that's to die for

Any dessert time is a great time for some blackberry cobbler — are we right? And the great thing about this blackberry cobbler recipe is the fact that you can use fresh or frozen berries, so it's not a problem if blackberries are not in season when the craving hits.

To prepare this sweet sensation, pull together ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, such as sugar, flour, cornstarch, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, butter, and buttermilk. A quick run to your local market for blackberries, and you're ready to get into baking mode. You will boil your berries first, then mix everything together for your cobbler. The topping is crumbly, crunchy, buttery, and biscuit-like, and will be a definite hit for a sweet dessert.

Chocolate-covered strawberries will make your dessert spread look so impressive

We don't know about you, but whenever we want something sweet and pretty for dessert, chocolate-covered strawberries come to mind. They instantly make any table look impressive, and complement the end of every single meal, no matter what time of year it is.

These sweet chocolate-covered strawberries can be prepared in just 20 minutes. You can please everyone in your house if you prepare a combination of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. Also, make several of them fancy with added coatings on your chocolate, such as Oreo cookie crumbs, crushed nuts, sprinkles, or even mini peanut butter chips.

When it comes to chocolate-dipped strawberries, you can easily combine them to serve with another dessert, like devil's food cake, chocolate mousse, or sweet cream ice cream. They will always get well-deserved attention on any dessert table.

This no-bake cheesecake is complete with a pretty berry swirl

No-bake Jell-O cheesecake? Yes, please!

We're not trying to brag or anything, but our no-bake cheesecake looks like it was taken straight out of a fancy bakery case. With a beautiful berry swirl, your dinner guests won't be able to stop themselves from drooling when they spy this treat on the dessert buffet. 

You'll need the No-Bake Classic Cheesecake Jell-O mix, specifically, to make this cheesecake a reality in your kitchen. Our recipe also calls for the frozen berries of your choice (we recommend raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries), sugar, whole milk, and butter. That's it! Be sure to have a sieve or cheesecloth on deck in order to make the berry drizzle. After the drizzle's ready to roll, you'll make the buttery crust, and then the decadent, creamy filling. In 20 minutes of prep time and 60 minutes of cook time, you'll have a professional-looking cheesecake to display and devour.
