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 might want to take the time to make all our own desserts, they can get complicated, messy and difficult to make.
Enter three-ingredient desserts. 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 desserts a try the next time your sweet tooth demands your attention.
