10 Dessert Recipes with Less than 10 Ingredients

Dessert can often be overlooked, especially on a student budget. So, being the sugar freak I am, I created a list of desserts that even your grandmother will approve of. Whether you’re impressing your friends for your girls’ night in, satisfying that late-night craving (that your roommate won’t hate you for), or whipping up a last-minute dessert because you forgot your parents were coming for dinner, I’ve got you covered. This collection is made up of my two favourite things: procrastination and dessert – and I’m sure I’m not alone. So let’s get started, shall we?

Please note I am not here to recommend Rice Crispy squares and Betty Crocker cake mix. These are real recipes to impress, so listen up!


1. Nutella Soufflé

These are two ingredients that should be in your pantry at all times. Nutella is a necessity and eggs are eggs. These two simple AF ingredients can make something so beautiful so quickly. Did I mention that it’s beautiful?

HOLY CANNOLI! Honestly, this is a genius idea and I’m so mad at myself for not thinking of it first. Fun fact: add mini chocolate chips to make it even better. You can thank me later.

4. Copycat Dunkaroo Dip

Everyone loves dips. Everyone’s favourite childhood snack was also a dip. If Dunkaroos were not your favourite thing to eat while watching Recess, don’t make this. Make this for a High School Musical movie-night-in with the girls and don’t look back.

6. Elnora’s Peach Cobbler

This grandma created a tasty and minimalist cobbler that any student can make. The ingredients are simple enough that, chances are, you won’t have to purchase much. As an avid cinnamon lover, I would recommend putting in a dash before tossing it in the oven. Please don’t forget the ice cream on top – it is very important.
