Raise your hand if dessert is your favorite meal. Same. Now raise your hand if the place we’d find you at a party is the dessert table, not the dance floor. Also same. But even if downing a table full of sweets isn’t up your alley, we all get a craving for something sugary every now and then. And you know what’s so much better than settling for a drugstore candy bar? Homemade baked goods.
As such, it’s always a good idea to have some delicious and quick dessert recipes on hand. We took it upon ourselves to scour the internet for the best quick dessert recipes to make when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth in a snap. These recipes are also great for when you need to whip something up for a dinner party or potluck. We even included some options for people who crave healthier sweets (don’t worry—there are extremely decadent options as well). In any case, these easy recipes all take an hour and a half or less, so go on and enjoy the sweet (and more importantly, instant) gratification.
