I love cooking but being a student living in a boarding house where I'm not allowed to cook, gives me lots of frustrations-- that may be a bit exagerrated=)... Anyway I love desserts the most so if anyone knows any recipe of a no-cook, and no-bake desserts then you're welcome to share them here... I'll be very happy to try them out... I don't care about sugar content and cholesterol counts so feel free...and let's be merry!!!

I make dump salad when I am in a hurry and don't want to take a lot of time to prepare a dessert. You just dump together 2 cans cherry pie filling, 2 cans crushed pineapple(undrained) 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 8 oz cool whip. Give it a quick stir, chill and serve. It is easy and delicious.

Dump salad? It's the easiest dessert I have ever tried but just as delicious as some of those I have tried before... My housemate loved them too, she ate more than I did... =)

When I need something sweet and don't feel like cooking something hot, I make this. I make some whip cream, add a can of drained fruit(I like mandarins and fruit salad)some miniature marshmallows and a bit of shredded coconut. I sometimes add chopped up jell o gelatin too. mmmmm maybe tonight I'll make some.

You can get the best no back cheesecakes at wal-mart, I love making them for my family when I don't have the time to make a real one. Its so hard to make cheesecake and its just nice to mix it and put it in the fridge, then when my husband comes home from work its ready. I love no bake desserts!!

No bake desserts are really good, you can enjoy the same good taste with less effort. They're the best during exam weeks when you're cramming and is craving for sweets...

Hi mulan_ron and welcome to mylot. I understand how you feel about not being able to cook. When I was a student in France I lived for 6 months in house where the landlord rents some of his rooms to students. But we were not allowed to cook and I was very frustrated. After six months I couldn't take it anymore and moved to a small studio that was further from the school but that didn't bother me as long as I was able to cook for myself. Well I'm afraid I will not be of much help for you but the only recipe that I know of a dessert that you don't cook is cutting different fruit into small pieces (banana, apples, pears, strawberry, etc) and add some yogurt on it and sugar. That's my favorite dessert and it's healthy for you.

I wanna try your recipe but can you pls indicate if possible how many mL/cup of condensed milk and hot fudge sauce? I looked up at the supermarket and found that they have different sizes of cans and jars of milk and hot fudge sauce... It sounds delicious so I'll really appreciate it if you can be more specific... thanks... -amateur_ron

Buy instant Jello pudding mix and beat well with milk according to directions. It hardens as you beat. Get a spoon! Instant gratification!

you can enjoy jell-o with fruit cocktail by just dissolving the gelatin powder with hot water and add some more cold water then cool in the bowl 'til bit harder the add one by one drained fruits from cocktail can until fruits be set separately with each other then chill overnight in the fridge. slice into squares then serve with whipped cream and cherry on top with drizzle of strawberry fudge or instead of whipping cream a scoop of ice cream makes it more enjoyable. a banana popsicle is also wonderful for you . . you just need to melt some chocolate chips then roll over a piece of banana in skewer already ; roll over to chopped roasted walnuts til completely or half covered then wrap with foil then freeze. so yummy !

Fruit salad is the easiest and fastest way of making something for dessert. Buy a can of fruit cocktail, can of cream and condensed milk. Mix them all together and put in the fridge, wait till its cold and ready to serve.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich No cookout guest will ever look the other way when you break out these cool cookie sandwiches. Use vanilla or chocolate ice cream as a starting point, then get creative with the flavors. (Hint: We like coffee. And butter pecan. And...) Credit: Nestle Servings: 10 Ingredients:1 (18-ounce) package Nestle Toll House Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough or Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough 1 pint vanilla or chocolate ice cream, softened Rainbow sprinkles Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels Directions:Prepare the cookies according to the package directions, then let them cool completely.

Here's one I found in my Kraft's Food and Family Magazine. You can substitute some of the brand names for cheaper items: Philadelphia Oreo No-Bake Cheesecake: It uses a 9 x 13 pan and takes about 4 hours to chill and 15 minutes to make. 1 pkg Oreo-type cookies (1lb 2 oz), split in two 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, melted 4 pkg (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp. Vanilla 1 tub of Cool Whip Line 9 x 13 pan with foil with ends of the foil extending over sides of the pan. Coarsely chop 15 of the cookies, set aside. Finely crush remaining cookies; mix with butter. Press firmly onto bottom of prepared pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping and chopped cookies. Spoon over crust; cover Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Store leftovers in fridge. You can use different flavor oreos, or low fat oreos. You can also substitute Philadelphia Neufchatel Cheese or Cool Whip Light. I hope you like it!

This is actually my favorite snack recipe, but can be used for dessert as well. I eat it everyday (no exaggeration). My kids love it too, it is awesome and so insanely simple. Easy Apples N Cream (or you can use any berry you like, I change it up all the time) Ingredients: 2 nice size apples honey cinnamon whipping cream Quarter and peel your apples (I leave the peels on if they are organic apples), slice them into a cereal bowl. If you use strawberries just wash and slice into bowl. Pour whipping cream, straight from carton onto the fruit. Use enough so that the fruit is partially covered. You dont want them swimming in it, but you want a nice amount. Add honey to the stop and stir. You will have to add the honey to taste, as that is what makes it sweet. I find that I have to add some, then stir, then add a little more to get it the way I want it. Add cinnamon and your done! I dont usually add cinnamon if I am using berries, only apples. It is sooo simple and soo delicious. The best part for me is the sweet, cinnamony cream left over in the bowl after the fruit is gone. That is my husbands favorite part too! Try it, it is great!

I am all about the JELLO! It's just so easy and delicious. Plus, they come in fun flavors and colors! All you need to the Jello powder, hot water, and cold water. Oh, and a refrigerator! It doesn't get any easier!

They make wonderful pre-boxed mixes for such things. There's cheesecake, and wonderful peanut butter & chocolate confections that I've tried and loved. You can usually find them in the baking aisle of your local grocery store.
