It’s hot and you’re craving something delicious and homemade. While a sweet treat sounds good, turning on your oven and making your kitchen even more sweltering than it already is does not. Besides, you want a delicious snack now, not after the oven is done preheating and then baking your creation. These 12 no-bake goodies pack the sweet without the heat.
