Bougie is the hip, slang word for someone or something that is luxurious, high-class, and in our case, a dessert that is humbly ready to impress everyone at the party. You’re not going to want to forget about these staple Top 10 Bougie Desserts the next time your goal is to blow everyone away with the fanciness and sophisticated-ness of your sweet treats.

I once went to a “Bougie” croquet party where all attendees wore their largest-rimmed sun hats and boho skirts and leather shoes. Pinkies were out as we sipped Champaign and took turns breaking bits off a big loaf of bread until the winner of the croquet game was determined. I wasn’t sure why we were eating rye bread by the loaf, but I guess that’s just what being bougie is all about.

Instead of sharing a communal loaf of rye bread at your next party, gathering, or any other social event, try bringing a dessert that will impress with these Top 10 Bougie dessert recipes:
