Banana Chocolate Ice Cream: Once you discover the hack that allows you to make ice cream without an ice cream maker, your mind will be blown. What’s the secret here that makes this possible? Frozen bananas. (via Brit+Co)
Palmiers: This simple French pastry is filled with cinnamon sugar and then rolled inward on both ends to resemble a wide heart before it's baked and served with tea or coffee. However, just because it’s French doesn’t mean it’s complicated. This recipe only requires two ingredients. (via The Pioneer Woman)
Donuts: The secret is out: Canned biscuits make great donuts. The best thing about this super simple dessert is that you can spruce up a basic donut with any number of creative glazes so that it feels like you walked into a bakeshop full of freshly baked choices. (via Hither & Thither)
Hazelnut Praline: Five minutes and two ingredients are all you need before you have a batch of sticky hazelnut praline right in front of you ready to be devoured. (via Culinary Jumble)
Dulce de Leche: We like to think of dulce de leche as liquid gold. What if we told you that you could make your own jar of deliciousness with only one ingredient? It's true! (via Brit+Co)
Coconut Macaroons: Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, these bites of sweetness are just the excuse you need to enjoy a mouthful of tropical coconut-y goodness. (via Yummy Medley)
Lemon Bars: You might almost be disappointed by how easy this recipe is. One box of cake mix and some lemon pie filling is all that's required for an entire baking sheet full of lemon bars. (via Rachel Schultz on Homemaking)
Cookies and Cream Oreo Bark: Oreos are a favorite treat, but sometimes you want to enjoy them outside of their original cookie form. When that feeling strikes, look no further than cookies and cream bark. The addition of white chocolate chips effortlessly transforms your Oreos into a homemade candy bar. (via Bakers Royale)
Fudge Pops: This is the equivalent of frozen liquid fudge. Simply whisk chocolate hazelnut spread (or peanut butter if you’d like) with some chocolate almond milk to thin out the spread, then freeze everything until firm. Easy peasy. (via Crazy for Crust)
Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse: You probably already knew that Nutella is the best thing since sliced bread, but did you know that it has other uses than just being eaten straight out of the jar? For instance, it makes a killer mousse if you have some last-minute dinner guests that you need to serve. (via Simple Sassy Scrumptious)
