American Sweets

American sweets are some of the most popular treats in the world. From ice cream to candy and everything in between, Americans have created some pretty amazing things when it comes to desserts. It’s no surprise that these desserts have become so popular–they’re delicious! But there’s more than just taste that makes American sweets so special; they also have a rich history and unique characteristics that set them apart from other candies around the world.
In this guide, we’ll take you through everything there is to know about traditional American sweets: how they came about, where they originated from (and why), what makes them different from other types of candies around the globe today–and much more!

The Classics
Chocolate Chip Cookies: This classic cookie is a beloved treat, whether you’re making them at home or buying them at the grocery store.
Brownies: A chocolatey brownie with a gooey center and fudgy top? Yes please!
Apple Pie: It’s not just for Thanksgiving–you can enjoy this American classic all year round!
Caramel Apples: Caramel apples are one of those treats that make everyone happy no matter how old they are or what their favorite flavor is (or if they don’t like caramel). They’re also easy enough to make at home if you want something special for yourself or friends and family who live far away from each other during the holidays.

Southern Delights

Pralines: These candy-coated pecan treats are a Southern classic that can be found in most grocery stores and specialty shops. They’re made by cooking sugar syrup with butter and cream, then adding in nuts and spices before cooling them down.
Moon Pies: Another favorite treat from the South, these chocolate-covered marshmallow sandwiches were first made by the Chattanooga Bakery Company (now called Moon Pie Foods) back in 1917. The recipe hasn’t changed much since then–it still consists of two round graham crackers with a thick layer of marshmallow filling between them!

Banana Pudding: This classic dessert consists of vanilla wafers layered with custard and banana slices topped off with whipped cream or meringue for some extra sweetness! It’s usually served cold but can also be served warm if desired; either way will make your taste buds go bananas!
Midwest Favorites
Kolaches (pronounced “koh-LAH-chees”) are a Czech pastry filled with fruit or cheese.
Caramel Corn is the perfect treat for movie night, especially if you’re watching a comedy!

Turtle Brownies are rich chocolate brownies topped with caramel and pecans. They’re named after their resemblance to a turtle’s shell when cut into squares.
Kuchen is a German cake made from yeast dough that’s filled with jam or other sweet fillings like applesauce, poppy seeds and raisins–or even chocolate chips! It can be served warm or cold depending on your preference! This delicious dessert has been around since medieval times but became popular in America during World War II when ingredients were scarce due to rationing–so we had to get creative with what we had available at home kitchens across America… which led us back into history again!

West Coast Treats
Fruit Pies: These are the perfect way to enjoy the flavors of summer. The crust is usually made with graham crackers or a homemade cookie recipe, and then filled with berries or peaches.
Rice Krispie Treats: These chewy squares are made by mixing butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies together in a pan over low heat until they’re melted together into a gooey mass that can be cut into bars or balls (and eaten at any time).
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries: A classic American treat! Just dip your strawberries in chocolate and enjoy them as is–or add sprinkles if you want them even sweeter.
Rice Pudding: This creamy pudding is made from cooked rice that’s been blended with milk or cream along with sugar and vanilla extract before being baked until it sets up nicely on top without burning around edges like some desserts tend do when baked too long at high temperatures.* Pupusas: These stuffed corn tortillas are popular throughout Central America but originated from El Salvador where they’re called “pupusas de masa.” They’re usually filled with cheese but can also contain meat such as pork sausage or beef steak depending on what kind of meal you’re making them for (breakfast vs dinner).
