5 Great No-Bake Desserts


by Sarah Ann Noel

Despite the back-to-school themes filling up your feeds, we are still in the throes of summer; and in many parts of the country, the season’s hottest temperatures are yet to come. Of course, this time of summer is also the stuff of family gatherings, picnics in the park, and late night cookouts with friends.

I am a willing participant to the potluck process and a dessert enthusiast; but do not ask me to bake something for tonight’s get-together when the afternoon temperature will surely exceed 90 degrees. Just the thought of turning on my oven in August makes me sweat. Determined to retain my sweets-connoisseur status, I scoured the Internet for the best no-bake desserts; and let me tell you, what I found is so delectable, no one will think twice about ditching the oven.


Icebox Cake. An oldie but a goodie—but this is not your grandmother’s icebox cake. Anything with Snickers? Yes, please.

Skinny “Banoffee” Popsicles. Banana is always refreshing–and also all you need to pass this treat off as healthy.

Paleo Chocolate Candy Bars. “Primal” fudge has been circulating the web for awhile, but I love this nutty candy bar spin.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cream Pie. All you have to do is say “peanut butter” and “chocolate” in the same sentence, and you’re speaking my love language.
