Are you ready to host a perfect little-girl baby shower? Check out these fun, festive, and feminine baby shower snacks.

All of these baby shower snack ideas are easy to make, but don’t let that fool you. Your guests will marvel at the beautiful, tasty, girl-themed treats you serve.

1. Strawberries-and-Cream Cheesecake

Who can pass up a classic like cheesecake?!

If you are looking for a way to impress your guests and the mom-to-be, we’ve got just the ticket. A modern twist on this classic dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

What’s the pink secret? Oven-roasted strawberries are added to the mix, giving this recipe from Martha Stewart a surprising berry flavor and a feminine touch.

2. Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies will always be a crowd pleaser.

To make these all-time favorites even better, try making them extra small. Finger foods at a baby shower are a must. As guests mingle and chat, they don’t want to be munching a big, crumbly cookie.

While any chocolate chip cookie would be well received, festive pink ones would be even better! Add a dash of red food coloring to your favorite cookie recipe for an easy, yet still festive, treat.

3. Pink Velvet Cupcakes

Cupcakes are a great baby shower snack.

  • You don’t need to supply forks. 
  • Guests don’t need to worry about balancing the plate while trying to cut into a piece of cake. 
  • Someone won’t be forced to man the cake table and cut pieces when guests are ready to eat.
  • They’re festive and fun!

If you are going to serve cupcakes, they really should be pink velvet ones. Sure, red velvet are the standard, but pink screams baby girl.

Have you been wondering what the “velvet” element is? Most assume it is the cocoa powder that is added to each confection; but really, it is the flavorful mixture of buttermilk-based cake and cream cheese frosting. Technically, the cocoa is just an added bonus. Sounds delicious, right? Get the recipe here.

4. Chocolate Mint Pinwheels

Looking for a dainty baby shower snack to accompany hot coffee or tea? Try a combination of chocolate and mint with this recipe from Land O Lakes.

By mixing two batches of sugar cookie dough, one chocolatey and one minty, you’ll create treats that are visually appealing and yummy to eat. Add a few drops of red food coloring to the minty dough for an extra feminine touch.

5. Sensational Slush

Most baby showers are an alcohol-free affair. But just because you’re passing on the spirits doesn’t mean the beverages will be dull.

There are several pink-themed, non-alcoholic drinks that would be a great addition to any girly baby shower. For example, this Sensational Slush fits the bill perfectly. It’s pink, flavorful, and perfect for an expecting mom.

This recipe from Taste of Home is especially appealing if you have a lot of sweet baby shower treats planned. Try something with a little tartness to round out the taste palate.

6. Pink Rhubarb Punch

Rhubarb probably isn’t something we naturally gravitate towards when looking for a pinkish food, but this blush-colored punch would be the perfect addition to any baby shower.

If you are hosting an offseason baby shower, see if you can find someone who was wise enough to freeze some of this late-summer treat.
