Although Thanksgiving is primarily based around turkey or main course meals, you can’t forget about the variety of desserts. Thanksgiving consists of your typical fall and pumpkin-based desserts and simple ones established around chocolate.

Banana Pudding

This sweet mixture consists of banana, vanilla wafers, whip cream and a custard-like vanilla flavoring to create this pudding. Banana pudding can serve in a fancy cup or fresh straight out of the pan. This dessert never fails to excite my taste buds during Thanksgiving’s hefty main course meals. However, this is not everyone’s go-to sweet during this holiday.

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is one of America’s favorites during Thanksgiving. This pie can be served as an original recipe or can be served spiced. The name of the pie relates to the time of the year and the autumn-like environment. This sweet dates back to around the 1600s as the Pilgrims didn’t eat pumpkin pie, but they ate pumpkins. As time elapsed, we furthered it into pumpkin pie.

Chocolate Pie

This one is for the chocolate lovers. It’s often topped with vanilla whipped cream or ice cream scoops. Chocolate pie is heavy on chocolate, but who doesn’t like the great taste of chocolate?. You’ll get exactly what you are looking for in this one.

Pumpkin Bread

This treat isn’t as sweet as the others listed above, but it gives off the sensation of a cozy, warm snack. Pumpkin bread is topped with pumpkin spice or chocolate chips to put this recipe on the dessert side. However, what you want to add on top of your pumpkin is completely up to you. This meal is served in slices or whole loaves of bread.

Peach Cobbler  

This dessert is traditionally served in the south but is becoming more popular in the United States. It’s a deep-dish pie consisting of peach filling. The filling vibrates the recipe with its sweetness completing the dish.
