Feb 23, 2018
There's a reason everyone is obsessed with the Instant Pot right now. The gadget can do just about anything, whether that's making yogurt or cooking fall-off-the-bone tender meat in 30 minutes or less. One thing you might not realize, though, is that it can also make desserts. Classics like brownies, pumpkin pie, and chocolate lava cake come together in a fraction of the time they'd normally take, so you can have a decadent treat without giving up your whole day to baking. These 11 recipes will help you satisfy your sweet tooth in an instant.
