1. Cake Mix Cookie Bars
These can be enjoyed by both cake and cookie lovers. They’re super simple to whip up, and everyone in your office and family will love them. Ooey gooey goodness comes in these simple steps from Build Your Bite.
2. Lemon Drop Cookies
Some people are not fans of chocolate or are allergic. For those people, these cookies pack a little punch with lemon’s zestiness. They’re also easy to bag up and divide amongst friends and family while adding color to a home platter. Insanely Good Recipes gives you all the easy-to-follow steps for a nice treat.
3. No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie
Do you remember when we were younger and we got those individual slices of pie in the cardboard holder? For me, that just screams nostalgia. So, though many may not agree, I think chocolate and peanut butter is one of the best combinations. This pie from Insanely Good sounds like it is just that — insanely good.
4. No-Bake Cheesecake
If you don’t feel like turning the oven on, this easy no-bake cheesecake from Delish is perfect for you. This recipe allows you to whip up a rich dessert that whoever is lucky to get a slice of will be drooling over. As with any cheesecake recipe, you can leave it plain or top it with some fruit or nuts for some extra love. The end result will be so delicious that your friends will think it’s from the Cheesecake Factory.
5. Angel Food Cake
Angel food cake is another delightful dessert that is both fabulous on its own as well as with added berries and cream. This one from Bon Appetit is really easy to throw together, and the fluffy sponge-like texture will have people reaching for seconds. See the link for details and how to be a kitchen angel. (See what we did there?)
6. Double Crumb Crumb Cake
Also known as coffee cake, you can eat this cake for breakfast without any judgment. After all, it’s supposed to be paired with coffee, right? Right?!?! All Recipes has an easy-to-whip-up one topped with delicious cinnamons. It may be too good to share, so keep that in mind…
7. Nutella Mug Cake
This dessert is made in the same dish you eat it out of, which is great since fewer dishes equal more fun. The individual serving sizes make it easy to ensure you’re making just the right amount, no tempting leftovers leaving for you to gnaw on. Tamillee Tips makes this hazelnut chocolatey treat easy to assemble.
