Whip Up a 5 Min Easy Chocolate Mug Cake ๐Ÿซ

One of the easiest desserts you can whip up is a chocolate mug cake. It's perfect for when you're craving something sweet but don't want to bake a whole cake. All you need is flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, milk, vegetable oil, and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. Mix all the ingredients in a mug, microwave for a minute or two and voila! You have a warm, gooey, and delicious dessert ready in no time.

Delight in No-Bake Oreo Truffles: A Quick & Easy Dessert Recipe ๐Ÿช

These no-bake Oreo truffles are a hit with kids and adults alike. The ingredients are simple: Oreos, cream cheese, and chocolate for coating. The method is easy too.

  7. Place the coated balls back on the parchment paper and refrigerate until the chocolate has set.

Notes

You can garnish these truffles with extra Oreo crumbs or white chocolate drizzle for a fancy touch. They're perfect for parties, holidays, or just a sweet treat at home.

Enjoy a Simple n Easy Dessert: Strawberry Shortcake in a Glass ๐Ÿ“

This is a fun twist on the classic strawberry shortcake. Instead of baking the cake, you use store-bought pound cake cut into cubes. Layer those in a glass with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. It's a simple, refreshing dessert that's perfect for summer.

Fun with Easy Non-Bake Dessert Recipes for Kids ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿญ

If you're looking for easy non-bake dessert recipes for kids, I suggest trying the Oreo truffles I mentioned above. Another fun recipe is 'dirt cups' made with chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos, and gummy worms. Kids love assembling these and they're a hit at parties.

  1. Prepare the chocolate pudding according to the instructions on the package and let it cool.
  2. While the pudding is cooling, crush the Oreos into fine crumbs using a food processor or by placing them in a ziplock bag and rolling them with a rolling pin.
  3. Once the pudding has cooled, layer the bottom of the clear plastic cups with a layer of crushed Oreos.
  4. Add a layer of chocolate pudding on top of the crushed Oreos.
  5. Repeat the layers until the cup is filled, ending with a layer of crushed Oreos on top.
  6. Finally, insert a few gummy worms into the top layer of crushed Oreos to make it look like they're crawling out of the 'dirt'.

Notes

You can prepare these a few hours in advance and store them in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve them. Just add the gummy worms right before serving so they don't get too hard from the cold.
