What do your Memorial Day plans consist of? We’ll venture to guess you’ll have your friends and family over, everyone spraying on a light layer of sunblock, ready to have some fun in the sun. We’re sure you’ll dust off the ‘ole barbecue and grill up some juicy BBQ ribs, chicken or grilled veggies. Maybe you’ll have your guests bring the sides, with plenty of potato salad, macaroni salad — hell, even actual leafy-green salad — to be had. And, we’re sure you’ll have plenty of paper plates, plastic cutlery and adult beverages chilling in the cooler. But wait; you’re missing something…

These sweets, from pie to pops, totally hit the spot. Here are a few of our favorite desserts, totally appropriate for the long Memorial Day weekend.
