Three Easy-But-Decadent Desserts to Bring to Your Next Potluck
February 21, 2020
Are you on dessert duty for your next get-together? These treats are a little bit over-the-top, but still super simple to make—no baking expertise necessary.
Nutella-Brown Butter Crispies [Bon Appetit]This recipe recreates a childhood favorite with a gourmet twist! It includes all the components of classic Rice Krispies treats—puffed rice cereal, marshmallows, butter—plus nearly two cups of rich, gooey Nutella. The chocolaty addition creates a hybrid dessert that lands somewhere between Rice Krispies treat and brownie, and your friends are sure to be impressed.
Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches [Delish]
Keep this recipe on hand for the first time you host a gathering in the warmer weather! The first step is to whip up an egg-free version of cookie dough, which consists of many of the same ingredients, including ample amounts of butter, sugar, milk, and, of course, chocolate chips. Freeze the cookie dough and slice it up into squares, then stuff softened vanilla ice cream in between two chunks of the dough. Freeze the completed sandwiches and serve!
Slow-Cooker Apple Crisp [Gimme Some Oven]
The only culinary skill that this recipe requires is slicing an apple. If you can do that, you can craft this slow-cooker version of apple crisp. Just combine sliced apples with sugar, cinnamon, and a bit of salt and lemon juice, then create a cinnamon crumble to go on top. Cover the oat crumble with paper towels so it doesn’t get soggy, and crank the slow cooker to high for three or four hours.
