8 Easy Oven-Free Dessert Recipes


Dessert is a year-round necessity. But when the temperatures start climbing, the idea of turning on your oven to bake some of your favorite delicacies is enough to make you start sweating. Fortunately, there are plenty of no-bake options that are here to help cool you down, even on the hottest days.

Here are eight oven-free dessert recipes that are quick, easy to make and oh-so-delicious.

Brownie Ice Cream Bombes



Forget popsicles – these brownie ice cream bombes are going to turn your world upside down. They also make the perfect party dessert. You only need brownies, vanilla ice cream, and Nutella for the body.

For the “magic” chocolate-hardened shell, you’ll need coconut oil and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The brownie sits inside a cozy ball of ice cream and is then coated by dipping it into a bowl of melted chocolate, fondue style. You can freeze them for up to six months.

Vegan Tiramisu Fudge Bars



If the last recipe is too dense on your blood, these vegan tiramisu dessert bars taste just as vegan. This is thanks to vegan mascarpone and cocoa coffee cream, which won’t have you missing the dairy at all.

This creamy cashew- and coffee-layered dessert tastes so close to the real thing. The addition of almond extract offers a gorgeous amaretto flavor that finishes it off perfectly. They retain their shape in the freezer, so keep them stored there.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie



Peanut butter fans, unite! This frozen peanut butter pretzel pie blends the creamy, luscious texture of peanut butter with a delicious chocolate pretzel crust.

It’s then topped with a luxurious ganache and a generous scattering of Reese’s peanut butter cups and pretzels. Lovers of sweet and salty desserts will have a hard time putting the fork down.

This recipe only requires two-and-a-half hours of prep time, which is pretty impressive given that it’s a freezer dessert, which can be time-consuming. Keep this tucked away in your freezer for the ultimate treat on a sweltering night.

Frozen Raspberry Cheesecake



Chocolate isn’t everyone’s thing and that’s absolutely fine. Alternatively, try this light and tasty frozen berry cheesecake. It consists of graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese, butter, heavy whipping cream, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and raspberries.

The fruitiness is just sweet enough but adds some much-needed acidity to a rich dessert. With the ripe berry season approaching, this will be a summer staple. The hardest part of this recipe will be waiting for it to freeze, and not reaching in to grab a handful prematurely.
