1. Edible Cookie Dough
So, you’re probably looking at the title edible cookie dough and thinking “wait, cookie dough isn’t edible?” To which my response is yes and, also, no.

Choose between 3 different flavors- chocolate chip, chocolate chocolate chunk, and funfetti sugar cookie- then get your apron on for the fun. You’ll only put about 27 minutes into prepping and baking this recipe altogether so there’s plenty of time for you to enjoy dessert and dish about the latest gossip. Click here for the full recipe!
2. Nutella Cheesecake
Here are four words to make you swoon: no-bake Nutella cheesecake. This one’s for the girl’s night in that always turns into a sleepover. Sweet, creamy, and undeniably indulgent, this Nutella cheesecake is really worth the amount of time you will have to wait for it to become firm. Sorry girls, you’ll have to pop in Titanic, get all the way through it, and then start another Leonardo DiCaprio movie (we’ll recommend Romeo and Juliet to keep that devastating romance mood going) before this baby is ready to eat. The good news is that it’ll be ready for you to eat all of your feelings before that second movie ends. Oh, and that crunchy chocolate topping you see in the image below? Those are bits of Ferrero Rocher. Again, super worth the wait. Head here for the full recipe.
3. Heart Shaped Churros
Next on the list are these cute heart shaped churros which are a sweet dessert that won’t take all night to make. In fact, they take approximately 20 minutes to prepare and cook. What could be sweeter than that? You will need a deep pot to fry these churros in, but we promise it’s not as scary as it sounds. Have a friend make the dough, another pipe it in heart shapes then drop them in to fry, and, finally, roll them in cinnamon. At this point, you could eat the churros as they are or make a chocolate sauce to dip them in. Tip: if you don’t want to make your own chocolate dipping sauce, melt some chocolate in the microwave, but be very careful when you take it out as it will be a lot hotter than it looks.

6. Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich
Combine chocolate chip cookies and ice cream, two of the sweetest treats to exist, to make the ingenious chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich.
