I realized that the key to his heart is really simple: sweets. Baking him dessert makes his belly full and his heart happy. 

These tried and true desserts are so epic, he thinks I slave in the kitchen for hours to make them.

What he doesn’t know is, they’re actually a snap to make. It’s a complete win!

From traditional brownies to the unconventional pizookie, these confections are guaranteed to knock dear dad off his feet. 

1. Homemade Chipwich

Is your dad the ultimate sweet tooth? How about this ice cream sandwich for dessert? 

In this heavenly frozen treat, your dad’s favorite ice cream is sandwiched in between two crunchy but tender chocolate chip cookies.

Thanks to brown sugar and malted milk powder, the cookies remain soft and tasty despite being frozen. 

It doesn’t matter what ice cream flavor you use! Chocolate, peppermint, or butter pecan – this chipwich is flawless, regardless.

Peach Pudding with Ice Cream

2. Tennessee Peach Pudding

Is your pop a huge fan of southern desserts? This peach pudding is a must-have for Father’s Day.

Picture it: soft and fluffy cake loaded with juicy peach slices and topped with a crunchy and buttery crumble.

Now imagine your dad’s face as he takes his first bite. Priceless, am I right?

Plus, the sheer scent of this pudding baking in the oven is enough to make him giddy!

3. Cookies and Cream Oreo Blondies

Cookies and cream blondies are the stuff of legends.

These blondies are soft and chewy and filled with two kinds of chocolate chips and chunks of Oreo cookies. 

I know you’re already drooling, but it doesn’t end there.

Finishing off this dessert is a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

It’s the ultimate definition of decadence!

Slice of Heaven on Earth Cake

4. Heaven on Earth Cake 

Whoever came up with the name did not exaggerate. A slice of this cake truly is heaven on earth. 

A light and airy sponge cake is topped with layers of pudding, cherry pie filling, custard, almonds, and whipped cream.

I’ll give you a second to digest in all that goodness.

You’ll love how each component brings something terrific to the table.

It’s sweet and tart, soft, creamy, and crunchy all in one bite.

5. Rocky Road Pie 

One of the most classic ice cream flavors is turned into a pie! Isn’t life amazing?

The pie’s chocolate filling is already decadent in and of itself.

But dressed in chocolate chips, mini-marshmallows, nuts, and whipped cream is when it gets more interesting.

Because when it comes to rocky road, more is better.

And the crust doesn’t disappoint, either.

A combination of crushed chocolate graham crackers, peanuts, and butter, it’s definitely a worthy vessel to hold in that glorious rocky road filling. 

Coca Cola Cake with Chocolate Syrup

6. Coca Cola Cake   

Putting Coke in a cake may seem like an odd idea but it sure works.

It makes the chocolate cake extra moist and extra delicious. It also gets bonus points for helping it rise! 

It’s not just about the cake, though. The sweet and buttery pecan frosting takes this dessert over the top.

The gooey frosting plus the crunchy pecans complement the chocolate cake wonderfully.

Lemon Bundt Cake

7. Lemon Cake   

Lemon cake is such a bright and refreshing dessert that will light up your dad’s face. 

Also, it’s insanely easy to make. We’re using the always dependable yellow cake mix for this recipe!

But don’t worry, it doesn’t taste artificial at all.

With help from gelatin, we can transform the misunderstood cake mix into a ridiculously moist and flavorful lemon cake!

Completing the transformation is an insanely delicious lemon frosting.

You won’t believe how a simple combo of powdered sugar and lemon juice makes a whole difference.

8. Twix Pound Cake

I’ve been seeing a ton of giant chocolate bar recipes online, so I decided to give it a try.

I’m happy to report that this Twix pound cake is seriously awesome.

At the center of this beautiful monstrosity is a frozen and thawed pound cake.

It’s covered completely with rich caramel and coated in rich chocolate, completing the Twix effect.

White Chocolate Mousse

9. White Chocolate Mousse 

Compared to the other desserts on this list, white chocolate mousse seems a bit basic. Wait until you try it, though.

It’s light but so flavorful at the same time. The smooth and velvety consistency will surely blow you away. 

Let’s also take a moment to admire its ethereal look. You can serve it as is or dusted with cocoa powder to make nice contrasting colors.

10. Chocolate Covered Bacon Bites

I mean. How can you go wrong with chocolate-covered bacon?

It’s like combining two of the best things the world has to offer!

If your dad is a sucker for the sweet-n-salty combo, he’ll definitely enjoy this treat. 

Slice of Key Lime Cake

11. Key Lime Cake 

Flavored with juices from key lime, orange, and lemon juice, this cake is undeniably and wonderfully citrus-y.

The cake gets a 10/10 for both texture and flavor. It’s ultra-soft and moist because oil is used instead of butter. 

Taking it up a notch are the bright and zesty lemon glaze and sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting.

Together, they create the perfect summer treat.

12. Cannoli Cake

Treat your dad to this dreamy Italian dessert! Cannoli and cake form is a majestic work of art.

Light and airy rum-infused cake is filled with a blend of ricotta and mascarpone, frosted in cinnamon and orange buttercream, drizzled with chocolate ganache, and finished off with almonds. 

Happy Father’s Day, indeed.

Millionaire's Pie

13. Millionaire Pie 

Make your dad feel extra loved with this extravagant summer pie! 

Buttery pie crust is filled with a mixture of sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, pineapple, lemon juice, chopped cherries, pecan, and whipped cream.

It’s rich, but the tartness from the pineapple and lemon balances it out.

With its vibrant colors and epic flavors, it absolutely looks and tastes like a million bucks.

14. Turtle Brownies 

Brownies are jazzed up with pecans, caramel, and chocolate chips.

I suggest you double up the recipe because these turtle brownies will disappear fast.

The best part? This recipe calls for a boxed cake mix, so even non-bakers can pull it off. 

Don’t worry, with the terrific add-ons, no one will even notice. 

Earthquake Cake

15. Earthquake Cake 

Let your dad enjoy the earth-shattering deliciousness of the Earthquake Cake! 

This dessert has layers of chocolate cake, toasted coconut, and crunchy pecans. It’s got swirls of rich cream cheese, too, for added oomph. 

The different flavors and textures produce a harmonious balance that will surely rock your world.

It’s the only type of earthquake you’ll gladly welcome in your life.

16. Pizookie 

It’s a cookie so big it looks like a pizza. How on earth can anyone say no?

Why give your dad a bunch of small cookies when he can have one giant one, instead? This pizookie can easily replace any cake! 

You guys, it’s one big chocolate chip cookie baked in a cast-iron skillet. Need I say more?

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

17. Chocolate Pudding  

Watch your dad tear up with joy as he takes a spoonful of your homemade chocolate pudding!

It may be simple, but it definitely packs a punch.

Chocolate pudding couldn’t be easier to make. Cocoa powder, sugar, and cornstarch: that’s all there is to it!

The result, however, is pretty spectacular. It’s smooth, velvety, and overflowing with decadence.

18. Mud Pie

Does your dad have a serious addiction to chocolate? You have to let him try this mud pie.

The crust is made of crushed Oreo cookies and melted butter. We’re off to a great start!

It is then filled with ice cream, topped with hot fudge, and finished off with whipped cream and even more Oreo crumbs.

This is every chocolate lover’s dream turned into reality.

Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Toppings

19. Hershey’s Chocolate Cake 

If a traditional chocolate cake is what you’re looking for, well, you have found it. 

This chocolate cake makes use of Hershey’s cocoa powder, so trust that it’s 100% packed with flavor. 

Also, a simple hack makes the cake even more delightful.

I never knew boiling water could make the cake so moist! 

20. No-Bake Banana Split Cake

This one’s for all you non-bakers. You don’t need to be a pro in the kitchen to impress your dad.

With this super easy recipe, you can make the most decadent banana split cake!

This cake has a graham cracker crust and a cream cheese filling. It’s also loaded with bananas, strawberries, and pineapple.

It’s finished off with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and cherries on top. OMG.

It’s 100% homemade, but so heavenly it tastes as if it came out of a restaurant.

Orange Pound Cake with Vanilla Icing

21. Orange Crush Pound Cake 

Want to add color and flavor to a pound cake? The solution is simple: Orange Crush. 

Infusing pound cake batter with orange soda doesn’t only give it a unique flavor, but an appetizing hue as well.

It’s terrific as it is, but the sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting makes it Father’s Day-worthy.  

Cake with Walnuts and Coconut Icing

22. Do Nothing Cake 

If you’re a novice baker who wants to make a cake from scratch, this is a good place to start.

This newbie-friendly cake is easy to pull off but tastes as if it was made by a pro.

The cake is outrageously moist and flavorful thanks to crushed pineapple. The coconut and pecan glaze make it dangerously addictive.

Peanut Butter Cookies

23. JIF Peanut Butter Cookies 

If peanut butter is your dad’s jam, make him these irresistible cookies!

Combining chocolate and peanut butter is always a good idea. That’s why these cookies are extra special.

Best of all, the cookie batter requires no chill time, which means you can serve and enjoy the cookies in no time. 

Lemon Cake with Vanilla Icing

24. Kentucky Butter Cake 

As if the cake couldn’t be any more outstanding, the Kentucky Butter Cake is drizzled with a ridiculously decadent vanilla butter sauce.

It’s absolutely to die for!

Sure, it’s high in fat and calories, but come on, Father’s Day only happens once a year.

You know your dad deserves the best, so let him enjoy that second slice.

25. Salted Caramel Peanut Bars

You know what’s better than caramel? Salted caramel, that’s what. These bars are proof.

At the base is a tender shortbread mixed with crushed pretzels for extra crunch.

In the middle is a layer of ooey-gooey nougat, and on top is a decadent salted caramel sauce.

They’re sweet, they’re salty, and they’re impossible to resist.
