The Best No-Bake Desserts for Summer

Sharing is caring!

It has been blazing hot this week in Chicago so the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. This heat could last a while but that doesn’t mean my family doesn’t want dessert the rest of the summer.

What better way to solve that than to make no-bake desserts?! I don’t have to use the oven and heat up my house any more than it already is and my family still gets yummy things to eat.

In my search for yummy, no-bake goodness, I’ve compiled a list of some of the best no-bake desserts.

No-Bake Cake Pops

Incredibly easy-to-make AND kid-friendly, these no-bake cake pops from Love From the Oven are a winner in my book!

Balls from Heaven (or Oreo Truffles)

Some may call these “Oreo Balls” or “Oreo Truffles” but I like to call them “Balls from Heaven”.  Classy name, isn’t it?!? These Balls from Heaven are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  Seriously, my go-to dessert for parties or whenever I don’t want to turn on the oven!
