Whether you serve it as-is or top it with fresh berries or preserves, you’re bound to have an irresistibly light and delightful treat.

Topped with nuts and a sprinkling of sea salt, this fudge is decadent without being too sweet.

3. No-Bake Oreo Truffles

Truffles sound like a fancy dessert you’d find in a high-end Parisian cafe, but in reality, they’re incredibly easy to make! 

This version only calls for blending cream cheese and Oreo cookies to make the base.

Then, you just shape it into balls, dip them in melted chocolate and wait for the chocolate to set.

You can doll them up with colorful sprinkles or chopped nuts for extra flair.

But honestly, these decadent morsels are perfect as they are.

4. No-Bake Banana Pudding

Layers of creamy vanilla pudding, crunchy Nilla wafers, and sweet bananas are topped off with fluffy whipped cream

If you’re looking for a refreshing tropical dessert, this is it. 

The layers are just as scrumptious as they are visually appealing.

Every bite will wow your tastebuds with its epic combination of textures and flavors.

5. No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake

There’s nothing quite like the mouthwatering combination of sweetened cream cheese and zesty lemon juice. This cheesecake is proof.

It’s velvety smooth and creamy, with the perfect balance of sweet and tangy.

It has just the same amount of sweet and zesty flavor as the recipe above. 

The difference is that it uses an extra-special crust made with crushed digestive biscuits and butter.

It might not seem like such a significant distinction from the first recipe, but believe me, it’s a game-changer.

7. No-Bake White Chocolate Velvet Pie

If you’re looking for something new to tantalize your taste buds, you can’t go wrong with this pie. 

It’s a smooth and silky blend of white chocolate and cream cheese with a crumbly Oreo crust underneath.

This next dessert is ready as soon as you mix up the ingredients. 

A mix of flour, butter, brown sugar, and milk, this cookie dough is sweet, soft, and chewy, just like how I like it.

P.S. if you’re worried about bacteria in raw flour, pre-bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.
