(1 Votes)

Summer is certainly the prime season for potluck. As family and friends gather for barbecues and picnics, everyone is focused on casseroles, slow cooker dishes and salads, but you can't forget about the sweets. We put together what we believe to be the best desserts for a potluck that are not only pleasing to your palate, but they're super easy to make as well! 


Pot of Gold

Watermelon Cake

Chocolate Rainbow Bars
