21 Yummiest Desserts Recipes
Some of these delights are easier to make than others, but they're all simple and require little preparation.
All of these sweets, from cake pops and cookie bars to caramel lasagna, can be created with convenient store-bought conveniences like pre-baked pie crusts and instant pudding.
You may be searching for something simple to bring to a playdate or something to satisfy a midweek sugar need.
In any case, there are lots of options on this list of 32 quick desserts.
1. Easy Dark Chocolate Billionaires
Making bite-sized sweets is a great way to serve something delicious without the need for extra dishes.
They can be served in mini-cupcake liners and served on a nice plate or platter, and your guests can have as many as they want.
Melted caramels combined with Rice Krispies and pecans create a sweet and crunchy filling.
Try putting a little sea salt on top after dipping in chocolate.
2. Easy Homemade Caramel Corn
You may have wondered how that thick liquid gold could cover caramel without making a mess when you've made it before.
The trick is to use baking soda near the end of the cooking process.
As the caramel aerates, it will bubble up and become much easier to mix through.
3. Quick and Easy Baklava Squares
I enjoy baklava but rarely indulge because it takes so long to make. My friend then gave me this simple recipe. I've made these squares for family, friends, and coworkers, and they love them. I'm frequently asked to bring them to special gatherings and events, and I even give them as holiday gifts. Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania resident Paula Marchesi
If you've ever cooked Baklava, you know how messy and time-consuming it can be.
This streamlined version has fewer layers and eliminates the need to make sugar syrups.
Simply butter your dough and fill it with a nut and honey combination for the same flavors but with half the effort.
4. Chocolate Icebox Cookies
I almost always keep some sort of cookie dough in my freezer. It's ideal for late-night cravings!
This recipe is super simple and uses pantry staples you most likely already have on hand.
After you've made the dough, bake the cookies you need and roll the rest. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for up to three months.
When the mood strikes, take out your cookie dough log and slice off a few cookies to bake right away!
5. Simple Apple Dumplings
One of the most useful pantry essentials you can keep on hand must be crescent rolls.
They're great for both savory and sweet foods and are used for pizza, buns, dumplings, and more.
Simply enclose some apple slices in crescent rolls, top with spiced butter and brown sugar syrup, and serve.
The Mountain Dew on the ingredient list is nothing to be concerned about!
Although it might seem absurd, it actually works.
6. Cake Mix Cookie Bars
Even when I'm not in a hurry, my favorite small shortcut is using cake mix.
It has everything you'd need and creates for extremely moist cookie bars.
They're perfect for a midweek snack, eaten warm with ice cream after dinner, or whenever you need something sweet in a hurry.
They take less than 30 minutes from start to finish!
7. Easy Coconut Macaroons
Despite being simple, these condensed milk, coconut, and vanilla cookies may be extremely sticky.
Try spooning the mixture into these wafer papers once it is ready. They have no flavor and are specifically made for sticky doughs.
Even while they are excellent on their own, a chocolate drizzle wouldn't hurt.
8. Vegan Coconut Chocolate Bars
This show's true star is coconut.
This base is light, silky, and has a great coconut flavor thanks to the use of coconut flakes, oil, and cream.
The light coconut is balanced by the dark chocolate layer on top, creating a delicious no-bake bar that is both vegan and gluten-free.
9. Simple Homemade Fudgesicles
You'll be preparing a chocolate pudding, but there won't be any tempering eggs to worry about!
Simply combine all of the ingredients in a pot and stir until thick.
The most difficult part is waiting for them to cool!
A insanely simple no-bake lemon icebox cake made with only four ingredients: lemon pudding mix, milk, Cool Whip, and graham crackers.
10. Lemon Icebox Cake
This incredibly easy cake is constructed of graham cracker layers and lemon pudding.
Cool Whip lightens the pudding, making it creamy and simpler to spread.
After a few hours in the fridge, the graham crackers will soften just enough to slice and serve.
This gigantic cookie is what you create on a Friday night. It's the weekend, and you deserve a treat!
Bake two large disks of pre-made cookie dough (you can press it into a baking dish if you want it nicely round).
When it's nice and golden, cover with marshmallow cream and chocolate sauce on one half.
Make a sandwich with the cookie discs and be mindful of the drips!
12. Lemon Drop Cookies
These shortbread-style cookies melt in your tongue.
Mix the butter and powdered sugar together until smooth, then gradually fold in the flour, cornstarch, and lemon zest. Make sure not to overwork the dough.
If you like your cookies crunchy, bake for 11 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown.
For a shorter crumb, remove from the oven before the edges begin to darken, which should be around nine minutes depending on your oven.
13. cupcakes with root beer floats
These little ones clearly taste like root beer.
There is no getting around it because the frosting and batter both contain root beer and root beer extract.
The soda will give the cupcakes a wonderful flavor and make them as light as air.
For the frosting, use the root beer the same way you would milk. You can add it gradually until you get the right consistency.
14. Bars of simple oatmeal cookie jam
At the very least once per month, I make something similar. In fact, as I type, I'm munching on a shortbread and raspberry jam bar.
Here's the crumb mixture: brown sugar, oats, flour, and butter.
With the remainder to sprinkle on top of the jam, press the base into a firm bottom.
I adore the taste of the local blackberry jam. It blends so well with the oat crust's caramel flavor.
They can be made in just ten minutes, but you must wait until they have cooled before cutting. It will be hot jam!
15. Easy Recipe for Buckeye
These tasty little bites are the ideal sweet treats because they are so simple to make.
They resemble small balls of peanut butter cookie dough, but without the flour.
After the butter and peanut butter are well combined, add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and brown sugar. In that regard, it resembles thick frosting.
For easy peanut butter cup substitutes, you'll dip them in dark chocolate after they're hard.
16. Disney Dole Whip
Disney made the perfect choice when they posted all those wonderful recipes that we all adore! Have you ever had grilled cheese?
Anyway, it couldn't be simpler to make delicious pineapple soft serve at home.
Simply combine frozen pineapple, pineapple juice, and vanilla ice cream in a blender until smooth.
That's it, for sure!
Scoop it up and serve it.
17. Pineapple Coconut Sorbet with 2 Ingredients
Okay, so technically speaking, pineapple coconut sorbet only requires three ingredients if you decide to add maple syrup. But even so, that's really remarkable!
Simply blend everything until completely smooth, then freeze for at least three hours.
It becomes vegan when coconut milk is used, and you could even add toasted coconut on top.
18. Toasted Peanut Brittle
You read correctly. The microwave can be used to make peanut brittle.
No fancy tools or candy thermometers are required for this! The bowl gets very hot, so be sure to have your oven mitts on hand.
Prior to adding the peanuts, microwave the sugar and corn syrup for four minutes. Add the baking soda and whisk three more minutes later.
Make sure your tray is ready before you pour, and attempt to spread it out fairly thinly.
The Samoa Dessert Lasagna Perfectly Replicates Your Favorite Cookie
19. Lasagna with Samoa Dessert
Despite having four layers, none of them are overly difficult, and the entire dessert may be prepared in about 25 minutes.
Start with a crust made of Nilla Wafers and coconut. Add additional caramel and chocolate drizzle on top, followed by chocolate pudding, faux cheesecake, and caramel.
The caramel doesn't even need to be made by you! To save time, buy prepared foods at the shop.
20. Pie With No-Bake Peanut Butter
I adore baked-free meals. They do half the labor and all the flavoring!
There are only six ingredients total for this pie, one of which being a pre-made graham cracker crust.
The other ingredients are combined, poured into the crust, and then frozen for a few hours.
If there were some chopped peanut butter cups on top, I believe it would be even more decadent.
21. Oreo Cookies With Chocolate
We all keep a box of Oreos in the pantry along with some hidden chocolate.
Despite their simplicity, these are quite adorable and will sell out quickly.
White chocolate and golden Oreos might also be used to create a delectable platter.
22. Roasted Oreo S'mores
S'mores are no longer just a summertime treat, after all!
You can make a dessert in about five minutes if you have Oreos, marshmallows, and chocolate.
Place each Oreo on one half and line the tray with marshmallows. Broil for about 30 seconds, or until it begins to brown.
Enjoy after adding the lid!
23. Peanut Butter Fudge
This fudge is a fantastic alternative for delicious gifts or simply something sweet to have at home.
Melt and smoothen the butter and peanut butter in the microwave.
Until it thickens, stir in the powdered sugar.
Before cutting, sprinkle with a little sea salt and allow it to cool fully.
Nearly guilt-free, this 4-ingredient Nutella mug cake is simple to make.
24. Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
I'm a little bit addicted to bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate.
These frozen nibbles are a staple in my home, so it makes sense.
Cutting your banana in half lengthwise and dipping it in chocolate after it has frozen is an even simpler method. You won't be eating one or two, after all.
25. Mug Cake with Nutella
The key is to exercise caution when cooking because mug cakes might go well or poorly. Because every microwave is different, 30 seconds in my microwave might be too long in yours.
I like to check on my mug cakes after 30 seconds of cooking. When it's prepared, continue at 10-second intervals.
Add more Nutella on top, and if you have Cool Whip, add some of that as well.
