Celebrate the Season With Easy Summer Dessert Recipes
Is your oven not baking properly or has summer’s heat got you down? Don’t worry, because we have easy summer dessert recipes that are done in minutes with minimal oven use. And each one maximizes summer’s best flavors from toasted marshmallows to fresh seasonal produce.
This is one of those easy summer desserts that uses a boxed brownie mix to keep kitchen time to a minimum. After lining a baking dish with graham crackers, simply pour the assembled mix over the crackers and bake. Top the brownies with marshmallows when there are 10 minutes left in the baking time. Looking for the brown, toasty exterior of real s’mores? After baking, broil for 2 minutes to give them some campfire crisp.
No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake
It doesn’t get any easier than no-bake desserts with farm-fresh blueberries. This blueberry cheesecake keeps the oven off with a crushed vanilla wafer crust pressed into a springform pan. An egg-free filling of whipped topping, marshmallow creme, cream cheese and blueberries mixes up in minutes before being poured over the wafers. After an overnight stint in the refrigerator, this cool summer treat is ready to enjoy without ever breaking a sweat.
Frozen Mocha Oreo Bars
Frozen treats make great make-ahead summer desserts that are ready to serve as soon as they come out of the freezer. This recipe combines an Oreo cookie crust with a mocha filling of whipped cream, sweetened condensed milk and espresso. Freeze after topping with crushed Oreos and serve with chocolate sauce for one of our favorite summer desserts with America’s favorite cookie.
Grilled Peaches With Vanilla Ice Cream
Your trusty grill can serve up easy summer dessert recipes just as well as burgers and hot dogs. Grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream is one of those summer BBQ desserts that is effortlessly elegant. Simply halve peaches or nectarines and remove the pit before rotating on the grill over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. A scoop of vanilla ice cream enhances the sweetness of this summer fruit, creating a dessert that’s done in minutes.
Piña Colada Cookie Cups
One of our favorite summer desserts combines the tropical flavors of a piña colada with the sweetness of a cookie. After assembling, press cookie dough into muffin tins and bake. While still warm, compress the centers, making a cup for the filling. Sweetened cream cheese, toasted coconut and rum (for adult-only gatherings) create a filling that’s pure piña colada. Topped with pineapple and a cherry, you can almost feel the Hawaiian breezes.
