I was not compensated for writing this post. Doorstep Desserts provided samples to facilitate this review. Opinions are 100% honest.
I have a serious problem. I have yet to meet a dessert that I do not like. So when I heard about Doorstep Desserts, I was all like, “Wait. What? Desserts? On my doorstep? Uh, yes, please.”
Doorstep Desserts is a subscription box like no other. Each week (very week! woot!), you receive a box of pre-portioned ingredients to create a delicious and unique dessert right in your own kitchen.
Plus, you get to select the recipe of your choice every week. Doorstep Desserts offers two options each week, so you can pick the one you want — or neither, if nothing is to your liking (I don’t know how that’s possible!). It’s one of the nice perks of this service, in that you get to actually choose what comes to you.
Doorstep Desserts has a whole lot going for it.
Their recipes have a broad appeal — the recipes you make can be enjoyed by everyone, from kids to adults to older adults, if you will.
The recipes aren’t difficult, which means they’re not only perfect for anyone to make (they’re great for making with the kids!), but they also don’t require a ton of time. And, that also means no stress (or at least a lot less!) in the kitchen.
Doorstep Desserts will let you step outside your comfort zone. Sure, I make desserts already, but I make ordinary desserts — brownies, cake, cookies. Nothing out of the ordinary, trust me. But with Doorstep Desserts, I’m now making desserts I’d have never attempted otherwise. I love that!
First up: Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles. Now you might be thinking, oh geez, truffles, how do you even make those? (OK, OK, that’s what I was thinking.) Guess what? They’re super easy to make! End result: Look great and might even taste better! Actually, I think they do. Man oh man, do I recommend the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles. They’re so decadent and rich and creamy.
Next? Red Velvet Cake Truffles. (I’m a sucker for anything red velvet, I’m not sure why.) The recipe called for the truffles to be “dipped” in the white frosting (as in, don’t complete coat the truffle in icing, you icing freak!) but I thought they’d look nice completely covered in icing. End result: Awesome presentation, and delicious to boot!
Third in the lineup: Caramel Cream Cookie Cups. These were a little more involved, yet still not complicated or difficult, which is an important factor for me. End result: Look amazing, taste amazing. They were a tad on the sweet side for me, but that’s just an issue of personal preference.
Last but not least, Chocolate Covered Heart Cake Pops (for Valentine’s Day!). These were pretty easy, as long as you don’t fret (or freak out) about molding the mixture into hearts. I was a little nervous about it, since I’m just not terribly creative/crafty, but I think I did OK for my first try. End result: Look great (their appearance is based on how well you can create heart shapes…and clearly I’m not that great at it) and taste great. (I’m a cake pop nut, so I’m a little partial.)
Doorstep Desserts are also downright delicious. Seriously delicious…which is why I’m more than a little grateful that the recipes don’t yield a massive quantity. For instance, you’ll make 10 cake pops or 10 truffles, or four cookie cups (believe me when I tell you that four are plenty!).
When it’s all said and done, Doorstep Desserts are a fun, unique way to inject a little (or, in my case, a lot) creativity into your dessert game. Why not give it a look-see and check out what they have to offer? You can select a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly subscription and as long as you order by midnight on Sunday, you’ll get your Doorstep Desserts shipment that week!
Oh, guess what? Doorstep Desserts is a subscription box that is totally within your budget. Yay!
