La Piñata: 5 Delicious Piñata Desserts

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Like most holidays, the origins of this Mexican-American holiday are somewhat vague now. (Something about something in the 19th century?) What’s clearer is how fun the celebrations are. Besides the beautiful dresses and dancing, there’s always lots of food and piñatas for the kids. Adults can have piñatas, too, but if you’re too shy for the mad candy scramble or blindfolded bat swing, you can also opt for piñata desserts. With these, everyone gets an equal share of the sweetness. From cupcakes to ice cream, here are five great recipes for piñata desserts.
