food | Easy Thanksgiving Day Desserts

I love Thanksgiving. Between the turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving day is a full-on feast. Mark and I usually visit our families on Thanksgiving day, so we typically end up bringing a side or a dessert. This year, I am bringing Mark’s favorite green bean casserole and a dessert to my mom’s house. When researching desserts via Pinterest, I found a few that looked truly amazing and wanted to share with all of you. I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I did!
