Dessert is one of the truest forms of happiness. It’s also one of the places it’s easy to tell the difference between homemade and store-bought. I mean, homemade cookies compared to store-bought ones? There’s no comparison. While we may want to take the time to make all our own desserts, they can get complicated, messy and difficult to make.
Enter the three-ingredient dessert. They’re fast; they’re tasty; and since they only require three simple ingredients, the chances of your kitchen becoming a total disaster zone go significantly down (although we suppose it depends on how skilled you are with a blender.)
We all deserve a dopamine-filled sugar rush from time to time, and these desserts are the perfect way to do it. Whether it’s Nutella mousse, a soufflélike cheesecake or DIY Thin Mints, give these ingredients a try the next time your sweet tooth demands your attention.
