No-bake desserts are especially great during hot summer months, but this Rice Krispie Treat no-bake cheesecake is good year-round. This sweet treat starts with a standard batch of Rice Krispy Treats pressed into a greased 9 or 10” spring form pan to form the crust. Next, you’ll prepare a delicious marshmallow cheesecake filling (cream cheese, vanilla, sugar, marshmallow crème, cool whip). Follow the directions for final assembly! Top with real whipping cream and a garnish of mini Rice Krispie Treats.
Twenty minutes and only 6 ingredients separate you from this light and creamy shrimp zoodles recipe. (Zoodles are noodles made out of zucchini, if you are new to zoodles.) You will need your own zoodle maker, and inexpensive buy. Besides the zucchini and shrimp, you’ll need salt and paper to taste, pesto, onion powder and heavy cream. Try something new tonight!
Do you need a go-to treat that is quick to make in a pinch? These peanut butter bites are oh-so-delicious and totally no-bake, which makes them easy and quick to make. Oats, honey, peanut butter and mini baking candies are all you need! Treat yourself!
The search for a delicious entrée or appetizer can end now! Whip up a batch of these pepperoni pizza twists and save yourself the cost of pizza delivery. Store bought crescent rolls are the foundation for this easy recipe. Each twist is filled with marinara sauce, pepperoni, and loads of cheese.
Don’t let your extra white cake or cupcakes go to waste! Turn them into a second dessert that is no-bake (as long as you have the cake already). You’ll need the equivalent of 3 white cupcakes and 3 Oreo cookies, plus some frosting, shortening, and white candy melts.
No need to worry! This funfetti cake mix ice cream doesn’t require an ice cream maker. This recipe is perfect for a hot summer day. Kids will love the colorful sprinkles. You’ll love how easy this is to make! The ingredients list is short—heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, butter, yellow cake mix, and rainbow sprinkles!
We’re pretty sure you’re wondering what makes this crazy banana cake “crazy”, aren’t you? For starters, it’s crazy delicious, but that’s not the reason it got its name. The “crazy” comes from the crazy low 275 degree baking temperature, and the post-baking freeze that helps cool the cake quickly. Get ready to go crazy over this super moist banana cake.
If you love green tomatoes, we’re confident you’ll love these oven-fried green tomatoes too! They are coated with seasoned almond flour before frying! Serve them up with a side of Sriracha-Ranch sauce for some extra spice! Bonus—this delicious appetizer is Keto, low-glycemic, gluten-free, low carb, and South Beach diet friendly.
This recipe for restaurant style salsa is made in the blender! You literally dump all the ingredients in and mix together in the blender. After it sits for 24 hours, you’re ready to enjoy it with your favorite tortilla chips, on nachos, casseroles or quesadillas!
Now you can create miniature S’mores right in the comfort of your own home! No fire pit required. These S’mores bites incorporate the same trio of ingredients as their classic recipe counterpart (graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars), but also require powdered sugar and melted butter that is mixed with crushed graham crackers to form a crust. The bites are made using a mini muffin pan which helps form individual mini bites.
