Keep your apartment kitchen comfortably cool and satisfy your sweet tooth with these tasty no-bake dessert ideas.

Salted Chocolate and Caramel Pretzel Bars

You can’t go wrong with a classic sweet and salty combination. Layer chocolate, caramel, pretzels, and a hint of sea salt to create an easy, crunchy treat that hardens in the fridge. Short on fridge space? Use a few small plates lined with parchment paper for this recipe instead of a cookie sheet.

Chocolate Éclair Cake

Sure, it would be nice to make fancy pastries or endless cupcakes, but who has that kind of space?! If your apartment has a small kitchen or kitchenette, skip the over-the-top recipes and make this quick and easy éclair cake instead. Bon Appetit!

Banana Split Pie

Even in an apartment with no kitchen, you can still whip up a scrumptious pie! This recipe uses pre-made and canned ingredients, so all you truly need is a large bowl and a spoon. Invite your friends over to enjoy this easy, sundae-inspired treat.

S’mores Pudding Parfaits

Still too hot out for an outdoor bonfire? No worries—you can still have s’mores! Put a twist on this classic fall treat with s’mores pudding parfaits. All the flavor, but no sticky mess and no standing over a hot fire (or an oven, for that matter!).

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Calling all peanut butter lovers! This one’s for you. A handful of simple ingredients combine to make a peanut butter and chocolate lover’s dream dessert—all without touching the oven. Just try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting!

Strawberry Lasagna

It’s not a pie. It’s not a cake. It’s dessert lasagna, and it couldn’t be easier to make! This recipe is packed full of amazing layers made of cream cheese and powdered sugar. It gives one last delicious nod to summer with colorful and juicy strawberries.
