4 No-Bake Dessert Recipes That Are Perfect for Summer

While hot summer days may have you avoiding the oven, dessert cravings are unavoidable. So when the temperature rises but your sweet tooth stays the same, no-bake desserts can be the perfect solution. From key lime pie to chocolate chip cookie dough, our oven repair experts share their favorite no-bake dessert recipes.

No-Bake Dessert Recipes? No Sweat!

Our no-bake dessert recipes are no sweat in every respect, leaving the oven off and taking minutes to prepare. And what if you find your oven not heating up when you need it again? Our troubleshooting tips can help solve the problem.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

What do you do when a cookie craving hits but it’s too hot to turn on the oven? It’s chocolate chip cookie dough truffles to the rescue. This no-bake cookie recipe mimics real dough but remains safe to eat without any raw egg. After 2 hours in the freezer, coat each truffle in melted chocolate and you’ll forget all about warm chocolate chip cookies. Until a cooler day, at least.
