Don't Miss: Ice Cream Recipes and Frozen Desserts
This is an old-fashioned recipe that never goes out of style. With just four ingredients, it's super easy and super fast, too. Even better: Kids love these haystacks. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
This dessert is a wonderful contrast of textures. Creamy chocolate pudding is layered with crushed graham crackers and toasty marshmallows. If you have a George Foreman grill or other indoor contact grill, you can use that to toast the marshmallows (they'll get golden brown, the clean-up is easy and you don't have to worry about the marshmallows catching on fire). But do not let small children toast the marshmallows by themselves.
Forget the Italian deli or restaurant, you can have cannoli any time you like with this simple recipe. Sugar cones serve as the cannoli shells, and the filling is a delightful blend of ricotta cheese, confectioner's sugar, mini chocolate chips and orange zest.
This was a popular pie back in the 1970s and '80s, made with creme de menthe. But there's no need to make a special trip to the liquor store to make this minty pie. You can get the same flavor with peppermint extract.
Everyone who tries this dessert loves it. And you will love how easy it is to make. It's so easy, in fact, the kids can truly make this one by themselves. For variety, try different flavored ice cream sandwiches.
Chopped Snickers candy bars, apples and peanuts are folded into whipped topping in this creamy, crunchy dessert that is full of great flavors. This is a great way to use leftover Halloween candy, too.
