When a craving for something sweet hits, it's tempting to just grab the nearest prepackaged cookie or candy bar. Easy? Yes. Healthy? Not exactly. It's a way better idea to whip up something decadent so you actually knowall of the ingredients that are going into it.
But don't worry about cleaning out the grocery store just to make one recipe. These easy-to-make treats all have four ingredients or less. So simple, yet so delicious.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
This gluten-free dessert tastes so indulgent. But get this: All you need are chocolate chips, butter, eggs, and sugar. If you've got some fresh berries lying around, feel free to up the ingredient list and throw those on top.
Consider this the grown-up version of a pudding cup. This pretty orange creamsicle dessert is light, fluffy, and delicious.
Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse
Yep, avocado...in dessert. Our favorite superfood is paired with honey and dark chocolate cocoa powder for a decadent mousse. (No one will believe there's avocado in there!)
3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cups
Forget the store-bought kind—making peanut butter cups on your own allows you to control the ingredients. In this case, that’s just dark chocolate, peanut butter and coconut oil.
3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
While we're on the topic of peanut butter, these cookies are also ridiculously simple. Just stir together peanut butter, egg and sugar for fresh-baked goodness.
Espresso-Hazelnut Bitter Chocolate Bark
For an interesting (and caffeinated) flavor combination, one little piece of this decadent bark will satisfy your sweet tooth.
