If you’re fond of making tasty desserts but the thought of turning on the oven on a hot summer day seems like a struggle to you, then I have the perfect fix! No-bake desserts are not only as delicious as ones that require an oven and a bunch of prep work, but they’re also relatively quick to make and with barely any ingredients at all! Get ready to impress your friends and family by serving up these easy no-bake desserts.
1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
I don’t know about you but I love Reese’s and Justin’s peanut butter cups! They both have the perfect mix of chocolate and peanut butter, which come together quite often to make a lot of delicious desserts because the two are a classic combo. If you’re looking for an easy and healthier alternative to make these yummy treats at home yourself, then this recipe is perfect for you because of the simplicity it entails.
After making the peanut butter mixture, all you have to do is start layering a small amount of chocolate in the bottom of each cupcake liner, next adding a layer of peanut butter before topping it off with some more chocolate. Then chill for an hour. For an ingredient list and step-by-step instructions, click here.

3. Double Chocolate Mocha Mousse
If you’re just as crazy for chocolate as I am, then this chocolate mousse recipe will blow your mind. I’m not even sure when I began eating chocolate mousse or when it was introduced to me, but I’m so glad that it was. Not only is it a classic dessert, but it is also extremely easy to make from the comfort of your own home!
It’s as easy as melting some chocolate chips, blending the main mixture together (the base of the mixture are eggs, espresso powder, cream, and granulated sugar), and combining the two, refrigerating the finishing product for about 20 minutes or so before you can indulge in one of the yummiest no-bake desserts you will ever have the pleasure of eating.

Coconut flour and nut butter are the two ingredients that come together to make the base of the cookie. With some added cinnamon and the right amount of raisins, there’s no telling how many of these you’re going to want to pop into your mouth all at once. They’re totally addictive.
