Easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies – Ready in just 13 Minutes!
This recipe for 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies is different from your normal peanut butter cookie since it uses just three ingredients and can be prepared in thirteen minutes! They’re the perfect item to make when you’re craving something sweet to eat or when you have little children who need a fast snack. Peanut Butter Cookies are Mr. 365’s favorite cookie, and he makes them every day. I used to buy Nutter Butters on a regular basis until I started making my own baked goods on a regular basis.
However, they are growing increasingly pricey! In addition, forget about Girl Scout Cookie season — those Do-Si-were Do’s gone in less than an hour when served with a glass of milk! And no one else ever had a taste of them unless we were the first ones to reach for the box of goodies!

This recipe for 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies is different from your normal peanut butter cookie since it uses just three ingredients and can be prepared in only thirteen minutes! You can whip up a batch whenever you want something sweet to eat or when you have little children who want a snack on the go. Mr. 365’s favorite cookie is a batch of thesePeanut Butter Cookies. I used to buy Nutter Butters on a daily basis before I started baking on a regular basis. To be honest with you, this is something I still do at times.
Moreover, forget about Girl Scout Cookie season — those Do-Si-were Do’s gone in less than an hour when consumed with a glass of milk!
What three ingredients do I need?
Is that all there is to it? Yes, it is all you require!
How do you make peanut butter cookies using only three ingredients?
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together the peanut butter, egg, and granulated sugar in a medium-sized mixing basin. Roll the dough into 18-inch balls and set on the baking sheet that has been prepared. Use the back of a fork to flatten each ball, creating an interlocking criss-cross pattern
- 12 minutes in the oven should enough. Cook for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet before moving to a wire rack
Are these Peanut Butter Cookies Hard or Soft?
When you first take the cookies out of the oven, they will be mushy since they were made with peanut butter. They will remain soft for a few hours, but they will stiffen over time as they dry out.
How can I soften hard cookies?
To keep these cookies (or any cookies, for that matter) soft, store them in a firmly sealed container with the end of a loaf of bread on top of them. The cookies will absorb the moisture from the bread, and presto, you have a delicious treat! I swear to you, it’s like magic. This is also something I use to keep my brown sugar moist.
What can I use for a sugar substitute?
I made these Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies with stevia and natural peanut butter in the exact proportions that the recipe called for, and they turned out delicious, although a little crumbly and not as soft as the recipe called for. Readers have also informed me that they have used monk fruit extract, which is also effective.

Microwave Peanut Brittle “>1.Microwave Peanut Brittle
I know you’re used to peanut brittle being a time-consuming and labor-intensive procedure, but you can really create it in the microwave in half the time! None of the culinary equipment that brittle is famous for, such as candy thermometers or chilling equipment, will be required; just be cautious not to burn your hands while holding the hot bowl. It is necessary to start by microwaving the sugar and corn syrup together for around four to five minutes, and then add some peanuts to the mixture.
Plan ahead of time by lining a baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper so that you can spread your brittle to cool.
Homemade Caramel Corn “>2.Homemade Caramel Corn
If you’ve ever worked with melted caramel, you’re probably aware of how messy it can be. When you make your own caramel corn, you can retain the caramel on top of the popcorn instead of letting it drip all over your house. What a lot of people don’t realize is that baking soda may be used towards the conclusion of the cooking process. With the addition of baking soda, the caramel becomes aerated and bubbles up, making it much simpler to incorporate into the popcorn mixture. Use a Silpat surface to place the popcorn on top of so that the caramel may cool down properly before serving.
This is one of the best quick-and-easy dessert recipes you can create that will please everyone in your family.
Lemon Icebox Cake “>3.Lemon Icebox Cake
This is another one of those desserts that appears to be difficult to make due to the number of layers it has. There’s no way that could be further from the truth. A few graham crackers and some lemon pudding are all you need to make this dessert. Cool cream will lighten up the pudding, and the graham cracker will begin to soften the longer it is left in the fridge, making it a more refreshing dessert. Source:
Tasty and Easy Baklava Squares “>4.Tasty and Easy Baklava Squares
Baklava is not a dish that is recognized for being simple to prepare. Not to mention that it might take up a lot of your time. If you make this version of the delicious Middle Eastern dessert, you won’t have to deal with nearly as many layers as you would if you made the traditional version. On top of that, you won’t have to worry about using any sugar syrups. Only butter, almonds, and honey are required to get the same flavor profile as the original recipe with half the effort. Source:
Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe “>5.Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe
You may have tried sopapillas and cheesecake before, but nothing compares to the taste of the two when they are combined.

The preparation time will be minimal once you have assembled your ingredients and placed them in the oven. Desserts are necessary, according to www.dessertsrequired.com.
Chocolate Icebox Cookies “>6.Chocolate Icebox Cookies
The following recipe is perfect for you if you are the type of person who keeps cookie dough in the freezer at all times. It’s very simple to create, and all of the components are things you’d find in any household.

7. Samoa Dessert Lasagna “> 7. Samoa Dessert Lasagna
It’s possible that you’ve previously heard of the delicious Girl Scout cookies with a name that sounds similar. Now you can make your own batch of brew in the comfort of your own home. The total time required to prepare this instant classic is only 25 minutes, which is the same as the time required to make the other stacked desserts on this list. You’ll be layering your ingredients from the bottom up, starting with the nilla wafer and coconut crust, then adding caramel, chocolate pudding, and faux-cheesecake on top of it all.
Reese’s Heavenly Peanut Butter Trifle “>8.Reese’s Heavenly Peanut Butter Trifle
When you think of a layered dessert that has numerous different types of ingredients, you might not think of it as being very simple to prepare. That doesn’t stop this peanut butter bliss from being both tasty and show-stopping in its presentation and presentation. This is one of those components where using shortcuts such as quick pudding, whipped cream, and packaged brownies may dramatically reduce your preparation time. When you’re finished, your guests will be asking you how long it took you to complete the project.
Rootbeer Float Cupcakes “>9.Rootbeer Float Cupcakes
Looking for a simple dessert to serve at your next party that will leave your guests speechless? Look no further. Unlike any other dessert, the rootbeer float cupcake has an identifiable rootbeer taste that is unmistakable. To achieve the same delicious flavor as the drink, you must use root beer extract and root beer in both the batter and the icing, respectively. You’ll use milk for the root beer in the frosting, but you’ll want to start out slowly. If you put too much root beer in your cakes, they will be overly strong.
Cake Mix Cookie Bars “>10.Cake Mix Cookie Bars
When it comes to making a simple dessert, there is no greater shortcut than utilizing a cake mix. They come out to be really moist, and the cake batter comprises the majority of the ingredients you’d already have on hand. Following their preparation, they may be stored in the refrigerator and used as snacks throughout the week. A scoop of ice cream on the side will make your meal even more enjoyable. They just take 30 minutes to prepare, so even if you don’t typically create sweets, you can do this task.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites “>11.Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites
What a mouthful of deliciousness these lengthy-titled goodies are. Make your delight a bit healthier by chopping bananas into little slices and include them in your dessert. You can make a quick and easy dessert for any occasion by sandwiching some peanut butter in the centre of the cookies and dipping them in chocolate. You’ll want to freeze the bites to ensure that they stay fresh for an extended period of time. Source:
Pink Lemonade Pops “>12.Pink Lemonade Pops
There are few treats that are easier to prepare than a popsicle that melts in your mouth. Cool down with these pops, which require only four ingredients and are therefore one of the most convenient sweets you can create.
If you like the flavors of raspberry and lemon in your tarts, you may use less simple syrup in your recipe. If you’re feeling very adventurous, you can even stuff pieces of fruit into each one! Source:
Dark Chocolate Billionaire’s Candy “>13.Dark Chocolate Billionaire’s Candy
Do you have a huge group of guests coming to your house? Not to worry, these bite-sized sweets are ideal for serving big parties without the need to prepare additional food.— As long as you keep them in mini-cupcake liners, you can use them to dress up any dish or platter, and your visitors will have a hard time keeping their hands off of them. A sweet and crunchy texture is achieved by combining classic ingredients like molten caramel, Rice Krispies cereal, and pecans in these billionaire’s candies.
Apple Brown Betty “>14.Apple Brown Betty
This delectable delicacy may appear to be time-consuming, yet it takes little time at all to prepare. Despite the fact that it seems to be an apple crisp, this recipe purposefully does not include oats, resulting in a shortbread-like texture. The apples must be sliced very thinly in order to cook properly, and the topping is best formed using a pastry cutter, which is what I used. If there are any lumps in the mixture when combining, don’t worry; they will melt away once the baking begins. To make it even better, serve it with a dollop of ice cream on the side.
Nutella Mug Cake “>15.Nutella Mug Cake
You will need to be careful when cooking this dessert since it promises to be just as wonderful as the rest of the treats on the list. If you microwave the cake for an excessive amount of time, it will get dried out and hard. If you don’t microwave for long enough, your cake will be too gooey to eat. Check your cake at 10-second intervals to ensure that it is thoroughly cooked all the way through while still retaining a slight amount of moisture. Using more Nutella and Cool Whip on top after you’re finished will really take it over the top.
Homemade Fudgesicles “>16.Homemade Fudgesicles
You shouldn’t cook them unless you’re around other people; else, you could end up eating the entire batch by yourself! Before it is frozen, the dish is essentially just a bowl of chocolate pudding. Except that there are no eggs, so you won’t have to worry about the temperature. Combine everything, and then comes the most difficult part: waiting! Source:
Rolo Pretzel Turtles “>17.Rolo Pretzel Turtles
You shouldn’t prepare them unless you’re around other people; else, you could end up eating the entire batch by yourself. Before it is frozen, the meal is essentially just a rich chocolate pudding dish. Only difference is that you won’t have to worry about the temperature because there aren’t any eggs. After you’ve combined everything, the most difficult phase begins: the wait. Source:
Is it true that you’ve had a long week? Are you feeling down in the dumps because of your job? There is no greater remedy than this monstrously delicious delight. All that is required is that you bake some cookies using store-bought cookie dough and then spread some marshmallow cream and chocolate sauce on one side of the cookies before serving. Using the other half, smash it on top of the first half to finish your creation. Just keep an eye out for any drops. Source:
Pineapple Coconut Sorbet “>19.Pineapple Coconut Sorbet
Simple desserts, such as the two-ingredient sorbet, are ideal for those who want something quick and easy to prepare. What’s even better is that you can produce a large number of them at once without being fatigued. You may make this delicacy even more wonderful by adding some more toppings, but how much time and energy you have will depend on how much time and energy you have.
Once you’ve combined all of the ingredients, you’ll have to wait for them to freeze solid before you can begin to make the ice cream, but the wait will be well worth it. Source:
Lemon Drop Cookies “>20.Lemon Drop Cookies
These lemon-flavored cookies are every bit as delicious as they are beautiful to look at. To achieve the greatest results, cream your butter and powdered sugar together until it is silky smooth and creamy. After that, combine your flour with the cornstarch and lemon zest. If you like cookies that are crunchier, don’t overwork the dough when making the dough. For the best crunch and gooey-ness, remove your cookies from the oven before the edges begin to turn brown or brownish. Source:
21. Cherry-Chocolate Pudgy Pie “> 21. Cherry-Chocolate Pudgy Pie
Even the most classic of desserts will not always look like the classics, as this rich and gooey pie illustrates well. Were you ever intrigued by the idea of eating a dessert that looked like a grilled cheese? Instead of layering different cheeses in the middle, you’ll layer pie filling, chopped almonds, and chocolate chips on top of each other. If you want to make it really special for your family, you may use whichever pie filling everyone like. Source:
Oatmeal Jam Bars “>22.Oatmeal Jam Bars
These delicious oatmeal bars may be enjoyed as a snack, as a dessert after dinner, or even as a breakfast treat with your cup of coffee in the morning. The right combination of brown sugar, oats, flour, and butter will make it impossible to refuse. It is advised that you use blackberry jam, but you may use whatever flavor you desire to make this recipe unique to you. You’ll want to wait at least that length of time for the jam to cool down after baking them, even though they only take 10 minutes to bake.
23. Strawberry Lemon Blondies “> 23. Strawberry Lemon Blondies
Strawberry blondies are a must-try if you enjoy shortbread cookie desserts. They retain their moisture on the inside and include little jam pockets that erupt when you bite into them. Each one has the ideal blend of sweetness and tartness thanks to the addition of a touch of lemon. Always prepare an extra batch because as soon as you put them out, they will be devoured by hungry people. Source:
Easy Buckeye Recipe “>24.Easy Buckeye Recipe
This buckeye dish is straightforward and straightforward, and the bite-sized portions it produces are ideal for any party or get-together. Although they have the same flavor as peanut butter cookie dough balls, there is no need to deal with the flour. In fact, combining the components together will result in a texture that is more similar to frosting than anything else. Give them a lovely coat of chocolate and they’ll be ready to be served to your friends and family. Source:
No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie “>25.No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie
Nothing says “quick dessert” like a no-bake alternative, which is exactly what it is. You receive the same delicious flavor as any other dessert, but you don’t have to spend the time making it yourself. With only six ingredients, it’s simple to understand why this pie made the cut, and you get to start with a store-bought pie crust to save time in the kitchen before you get started. Blend your ingredients as much as you can before placing them in the freezer to chill down a little bit. If you want to make yourself even more gluttonous, you can add some whipped toppings on top.
Peanut Butter Fudge “>26.Peanut Butter Fudge
Chocolate fudge is yet another of those two-ingredient treats that is really simple to prepare. Make a small amount extra so that you may have some snacks to munch on during the rest of the week. This recipe does not need the use of an oven; instead, simply microwave the peanut butter and butter until they are completely melted.
Add a little powdered sugar and whisk until the mixture becomes thicker in consistency. Simply season with a pinch of salt and set it aside to cool before cutting it into pieces is all that is required. Source:
Chocolate Dipped Oreos “>27.Chocolate Dipped Oreos
A tasty dish can’t be guaranteed any better than by incorporating one of your favorite ingredients! As soon as you walk inside the store, you’ll see that these chocolate-dipped Oreos are already halfway finished. It’s as simple as melting the chocolate and dipping your Oreos halfway into it. To make them stand out, add some sprinkles or coconut flavour. You may also try several flavors of Oreos, such as the golden flavor or white chocolate, to see what works best for you. Source:
Cannoli Cupcakes “>28.Cannoli Cupcakes
These cupcakes are beautiful and tasty, and they look wonderful on any party table. However, they won’t last long on the table. Because they are made using a light cinnamon cake, they do not leave a heavy feeling in your stomach after you have finished one. The mascarpone icing that is placed on top of them adds even more deliciousness to these cupcakes. Adding some chocolate chips on top will make it difficult to keep your hands away from the cookies.

29. Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings “> 29. Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
Although you might not think of apples when you think of crescent rolls, the versatile pastry can be used for a variety of dishes. You just wrap thin apple slices in crescent rolls, sprinkle with brown sugar and butter, and bake them in the oven until they are crisp and golden brown. Although it may seem strange to use Mountain Dew, you will not be disappointed with the flavor if you do. Source:
Oreo S’mores “>30.Oreo S’mores
When you buy crescent rolls at the shop, you might not think of apples, but this versatile pastry can be used for almost everything! You just wrap thin apple slices in crescent rolls, sprinkle with brown sugar and butter, and bake them in the oven until golden brown. It may seem strange to include Mountain Dew in this recipe, but you will not be disappointed with the flavor. Source:
Coconut Macroons “>31.Coconut Macroons
This simple recipe simply calls for three ingredients: coconut, vanilla, and condensed milk, all of which are readily available. Because the procedure can be somewhat sticky, it is recommended that you use wafer paper to pour the mixture into. They are particularly effective when dealing with sticky materials. These macaroons look lovely on any party platter, but you could make them even more festive by dripping some chocolate on top of each one. Source:
Cake Balls “>32.Cake Balls
Nothing quite says dessert quite like a soft, sweet, and delectable cake pop on a stick. You may use any sort of chocolate you want to cover them with, and they take absolutely little time to prepare. If you’ve ever eaten cake pops, these are pretty much the same thing, but they’re formed into small balls for bite-sized nibbles instead of the traditional cake pops. You may use whatever sort of cake you want to create a wide variety of different flavor combinations. Source:
Hershey’s Chocolate Pie “>33. Hershey’s Chocolate Pie
This Hershey’s version of peanut butter pie is exactly as simple to create as the original no-bake peanut butter pie. In order to save time on preparation, you’re going to use an Oreo crumb crust instead of the typical graham cracker crust.
The remainder of the components are equally straightforward to prepare. Cool Whip may be mixed with melted chocolate to create a delicious dessert that can be stored in the refrigerator. Finish it up with some chocolate shavings for a stunning presentation.

25 Easy 3-Ingredient Desserts
These three-ingredient sweets are incredibly simple to make and almost difficult to resist! These simple desserts, which range from ice cream to fudge to cookies, are the ideal way to round up your meal. Baking is my absolute favorite thing to do. Would you like to save this recipe? If you provide your your address here, we’ll send you the recipe right to your inbox!
Easy Desserts Made with Few Ingredients
Sweet desserts are something I absolutely like, whether I’m eating them, preparing them, or surfing through Pinterest for ideas. However, we have all experienced those instances when a desire strikes and you need something quick! These three-ingredient desserts are often quick to prepare and created using ingredients you presumably already have on hand. Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious, whether it’s no-bake cookies & bars, fudge, or ice cream. This collection of dishes demonstrates that you need not require a pantry stocked with unusual ingredients in order to satisfy your sweet desire.
1. 3-Ingredient No-Churn Ice Cream
An ice cream machine will never be a terrible purchase in the long run. I guarantee you that having one on hand will not be a regret! As a result of using this recipe, you may have a loaf pan full of rich, creamy vanilla ice cream in a couple of minutes. Make use of vanilla paste or high-quality extract for this recipe. In this situation, you will be able to tell the difference. Using a gentle fold, combine the condensed milk and whipped cream, being careful not to deflate it. Allow for freezing time, and be patient.
2. Tiger Butter Fudge
If you’re looking for something in the middle of the two worlds, this is it. A layer of peanut butter and white chocolate is swirled with dark or milk chocolate in this recipe. Although it is thinner than fudge, the peanut butter gives the chocolate a chewy texture that is to die for. The creamiest peanut butter will produce the most beautiful swirls, and high-quality chocolate should be used for the best results. The low-cost material just does not melt as well as the expensive stuff. Would you like to save this recipe?
3. 3-Ingredient Easy Apple Cobbler
When a cobbler can be made with only three ingredients and taste this fantastic, it will be difficult to go back to any other recipe. Using cinnamon buns from a can is such a fantastic alternative.
You can save hours in the kitchen by using these fluffy and soft biscuits, which are also flavorful and rich with nutrients. It goes without saying that apple pie filling is a traditional choice that will pair nicely with the cinnamon, but really, any delicious pie filling will do.
4. 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Bars Recipe
I’m always impressed at how well things come together when there aren’t any eggs, butter, or flour involved. These snacks are really simple to make, using only bananas, peanut butter, and oats. Of course, if you want to top it off with chocolate and almonds, there are a few of extras to choose from. If you use bananas that are sufficiently ripe, there is no need to add any more sugar. If you use chunky peanut butter, you won’t even have to bother with adding nuts to your recipe.
5. 3-Ingredient Chocolate Almond Clusters
When I’m putting together cookie boxes for the holidays, I usually want to include something along the lines of this. Dark chocolate, almonds, and sea salt are used in the preparation of these treats. That’s all there is to it! After a long day of mixing and kneading dough, it’s a treat to sit down to something wonderfully straightforward. These would be delicious with any type of nut, and you could even use semi-sweet or even milk chocolate if you like a more subtle flavor.
6. 3-Ingredient Mounds Bar Recipe
Again, this is an extremely easy dessert that only requires a few ingredients. These are even superior than the products available in shops. The condensed milk will enhance the sweetness and moisture of the coconut, ensuring that it remains delicate and delicious. Dark chocolate is my favorite topping for these since the richness pairs so beautifully with the light coconut flavor. However, if you like something a little less bitter, semi-sweet might work as well.
7. 3-Ingredient Homemade Butterfingers
Using only a few simple components, you may make yet another delicious treat. Compared to store-bought products, these are much better! The sweetness and moisture provided by the condensed milk will keep the coconut soft and delicious. On these, I like dark chocolate since the richness complements the delicate coconut flavor well. It is possible to use semi-sweet instead of bitter if you like a less bitter flavor profile.
8. Chocolate Covered Strawberries
When strawberries are in season, I have to admit that I go a little strawberry crazy. I make jam, biscuits, cakes, and a variety of other things. The only thing that can compare to that is a large dish of chocolate-covered strawberries. They’re really one of my favorite things to use as a cake decoration! Make certain that the fruit is well washed and dried before you begin; otherwise, the chocolate will not adhere. Top with nuts, coconut, or sprinkles shortly after dipping if you want them to stay crunchy.
9. 3-Ingredient White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels
I must admit that during strawberry season, I go completely bananas over them. Among other things, I make jam, biscuits, and cakes. The only thing that can compare to that is a large dish of chocolate-covered strawberries. My personal favorite item to use for cake decorating is these flowers! Make certain that the fruit is well washed and dried before applying the chocolate. Top with nuts, coconut, or sprinkles shortly after dipping if you want them to stay crispy.
10. Disney Dole Whip Recipe
This classic Disney dish is simple to prepare and requires only a few simple ingredients.
It’s the ultimate summer treat when you combine vanilla ice cream with pineapple juice and frozen pineapple. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth and creamy.
11. 3-Ingredient Roasted Almond Toffee Bark
Chocolate bark is always going to be a safe, tasty treat to enjoy with your family. Because the basis is chocolate, you can be sure it will be delicious! If you want to make this variation, you’ll roast the almonds first to bring out their natural taste before slicing them into small crumbs. Once the toffee bits have been incorporated into the chocolate, you will have a delicious handmade chocolate bar that is both crunchy and flavorful.
12. 3-Ingredient Low-Sugar Cranberry Chocolate Almond Bark
The bark drops in this recipe are a little different from the traditional recipes. Traditionally, you would prepare a tray by spreading the chocolate over a parchment sheet and breaking it into shards once it has hardened completely. This recipe calls for slicing the chocolate into rounds and sprinkling the dried cranberries and almonds on top before baking. It is possible to form it into a sheet in the traditional manner, but I prefer the aesthetic of the individual bits.
13. Easy Fruit Sorbet
This recipe is similar to creating banana ice cream with simply frozen bananas, in that it is essentially a blended frozen fruit mixture. The only difference is that, unlike with the bananas, you will need to add some sugar to the mixture. It’s nearly always necessary to add a small amount of sugar to fruits, whether they be blueberries, strawberries, or peaches, in order to bring out their natural flavors. Creating a simple syrup out of water and sugar is the quickest and most convenient method to add sweetness to a recipe.
Once it has been mixed, it may be eaten right away or stored in the freezer.
14. 3-Ingredient Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge
This dish is essentially mixed frozen fruits, similar to how banana ice cream is made from solely frozen bananas. The only difference is that, unlike with the bananas, you will need to add some sugar to the batter. It’s nearly always necessary to add a small amount of sugar to fruit, whether the fruit is blueberries, strawberries, or peaches, in order to bring out the taste. Making a simple syrup out of water and sugar is the quickest and most convenient method to add sweetness to any recipe, and it can be used for everything from coffee to smoothies.
In order to make it a bit creamier, some coconut cream can be added to the recipe.
15. 3-Ingredient Homemade Thin Mints
If you’re a member of Team Samoas, you can go to the following recipe. However, for those of you who happen to have a box of Thin Mints stashed away in your freezer, this one is just for you. I know it seems odd, but using butter crackers to reproduce these family favorites at home is such a brilliant idea. When adding the peppermint, proceed with caution as it will be quite potent.
16. Microwave Baked Apples
Keep it a secret from your grandmother, but you can whip up a batch of baked apples in under five minutes. You only need a microwave and a few simple ingredients to make this dish! I realize that using a microwave to bake apples seems blasphemous, but it really does work.
It is not just that they become beautifully soft, but they also retain their shape considerably more effectively. You could also use them to top your oatmeal or pancakes, and they would be delicious topped with some vanilla ice cream.
17. Chocolate-Covered Raisins
If you want to get youngsters to eat their fruits, I always tell them to cover them with chocolate! To be sure, raisins are already delicious tiny natural sweets, but incorporating chocolate into the mix is always a good idea, right? Don’t forget to include the oil in your chocolate recipe. It gives it a shinier appearance and a smoother texture. Because separating the raisins might be time-consuming, I prefer to cluster them together when spreading them onto the baking sheet.
18. Haystacks Recipe
Someone should be awarded a prize for coming up with the idea to utilize chow mein noodles for these delectable delicacies. They have the perfect texture, and they produce the prettiest tiny haystacks ever! Despite the fact that you could use chocolate for these, I like the color and flavor that the butterscotch morsels provide. This recipe may be made with any chopped nuts that you have on hand. In addition, a sprinkle of sea salt might not be a terrible idea at this point.
19. 3-Ingredient Shortbread
As a child, I used to prepare shortbread on a regular basis, and I continue to do so still. So buttery and uncomplicated that it is frequently preferred over the most intricate sugar cookies. The less complicated, the better in my opinion. Even better, it doesn’t get any easier than three simple ingredients. You’ll notice that it looks like a floury mess when you’re mixing the butter and sugar. It’s possible that you’ll be tempted to add more butter or milk. But put your faith in the process.
This recipe cannot be rolled, but it may be pressed into a baking dish and cut into bars if you want.
20. 3-Ingredient Chocolate Truffle Recipe
Chocolate ganache is a beautiful concoction that should not be missed. You may use additional cream to produce a rich and luscious pouring sauce that is excellent for a special occasion. You might increase the amount of chocolate in it to make it more set. You may then scoop the ganache into truffles and cover them completely in pure chocolate after they have hardened. Another wonderful alternative is to whisk the ganache (once it has cooled and set) to create a fluffier truffle filling once it has cooled and set (or frosting).
Allow it to settle for a few minutes before whisking it till smooth.
21. S’mores Dip
Creating a ganache out of chocolate is a fantastic experience. You may use additional cream to make a rich and luscious pouring sauce that is wonderful for dipping your bread into after dinner. To make it more set, you might increase the amount of chocolate used. You may then scoop the ganache into truffles and cover them completely in pure chocolate once they have dried out. If you like a fluffier truffle filling, you may beat the ganache (after it has cooled and set) until it is light and airy (or frosting).
Set aside for a few minutes, then whisk until completely smooth, as directed. Adding oil flavoring to the chocolate will enhance the flavor (do not use standard liquid flavoring since it may cause the chocolate to seize).
22. Easy 3-Ingredient Coconut Macaroons
Coconut has a particular texture that is not to everyone’s liking, so be warned. However, for those who enjoy it, dishes such as this one are a gift from above! Because coconut is such a delicate flavor, I frequently feel that it is overshadowed when it is combined with other ingredients. Coconut is the star of this performance, and for good reason! When it is combined with the condensed milk, it will become sweetened, creamy, and sticky in texture. After baking, the edges will become somewhat crunchy, revealing a delightfully chewy core in the middle of the cake.
23. 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
These gluten-free cookies are incredibly easy to make and much more difficult to refuse. You won’t need any flour or butter for this recipe. Amazingly, just three ingredients are required: peanut butter, sugar, and eggs. Because the dough will be very soft, it will be much simpler to fill your baking pan if you use an ice cream scoop to portion it out. You may discover that you require more or less sugar depending on the sort of peanut butter you are using.
24. Potato Chip Clusters
These clusters, which are yet another great salty-sweet combination, are borderline deadly. I ate half of these the day after I prepared them! Despite the fact that you could use any salty potato chip, I love the appearance that crinkled chips give off. Always use high-quality white chocolate to ensure that it melts correctly, and use caution while folding the chips through once they have been melted. You don’t want to cause them any harm.
25. Nut-Free Energy Balls (3 Ingredients!)
However, although these are referred to as energy balls, I believe they are the ultimate vegan and gluten-free truffles! Use your favorite nut butter replacement if you choose, but keeping it nut-free would make it an especially wonderful allergy-friendly sweet treat. If you can obtain vegan chocolate (most high-quality dark chocolate is vegan-friendly), you could serve them alongside the chocolate truffles mentioned above in the recipe. Nobody would ever suspect that they were on the verge of being ill!
