Hi Bold Bakers!

WHAT YOU GET: 10 of the best no-oven-needed, no-bake, leave-that-oven-off recipes that will keep you much, much cooler this summer — everything from Crazy No-Bake Cookies to Japanese Mochi!

Summer is the perfect time to make some delicious treats… that don’t require an oven. Whether you don’t have access to an oven or don’t want to add to the heat of your house by using one, these 10 recipes will satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping you cool this summer — or all year — long!

No-Bake White Chocolate Raspberry Pie

How beautiful is my No-Bake White Chocolate Raspberry Pie? From the delicious graham cracker crust to the fresh berries and the rich white chocolate filling, this pie is the perfect sophisticated treat. It’s so easy and fast to assemble but guests will think you spent hours assembling this lovely pie — it was one of the first that came to mind when I thought about No Oven Needed Recipes.

Who doesn’t love Oreo cookies and cheesecake? Now you can have both together with my No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake recipe. With a crunchy Oreo cookie crust, a rich and creamy cheesecake center packed with Oreo flavor, and a decadent chocolate ganache on top, this is the perfect sinful dessert that won’t even require turning on the oven.

Crazy No-Bake Cookies

My Crazy No-Bake Cookies are a great way to get the flavor and texture of cookies without an oven. They are super easy to make and like all my other crazy recipes, the flavor possibilities are endless! With flavors like Nutella, white chocolate and raspberry, monster cookie, and more, you can try different flavors all year long!

10-Minute Chocolate Mousse

A spoonful of Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Mousse is one of my favorite chocolate desserts. It’s light as air but is somehow still rich and creamy. It may seem difficult to make but with my recipe, it’s extremely simple and can be made in 10 minutes flat!

2-Ingredient Ice Cream

If you are at all familiar with my website, you’re probably aware of my 2-Ingredient Ice Cream. In my opinion, this is the holy grail of Bigger Bolder Baking. It’s incredibly easy to make, very versatile, and of course, absolutely delicious. There are so many delectable flavors on my website from Neapolitan (pictured above), to cotton candy, and so many more, I guarantee there are tons of flavors you’ll love.

Tiramisu Semifreddo

My Tiramisu Semifreddo combines two amazing, sophisticated desserts into one creamy, delicious, frozen treat. The mascarpone and coffee-flavored semifreddo and the light (and slightly boozy if you choose) ladyfingers make one great dessert that doesn’t require an oven.

Coconut Panna Cotta With Summer Fruit

If you’ve never tried my Coconut Panna Cotta With Summer Fruit, you need to. It’s rich and creamy but is full of bright, tropical flavors like coconut and lime which pair great with the fresh summer berries. Also, since it’s made in individual jars, it’s the perfect dessert to bring on a romantic summer picnic.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream Pie

I don’t think my No-Bake Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream Pie needs an introduction. The title speaks for itself. This Oreo-crusted dessert is the ice cream cake/pie hybrid of your dreams. It’s creamy, sweet, salty, and absolutely delicious. This will surely be your next favorite summer dessert.

S’more Cheesecake

My S’more Cheesecake is the perfect way to eat s’mores without getting your hands all sticky. A decadent chocolate cheesecake with a graham cracker crust and a sweet, gooey toasted marshmallow topping… what could be better?

Mochi Ice Cream

Mochi has been huge on the internet recently so why not make your own? Mochi Ice Cream is made from a slightly sweet rice flour dough that is loaded with ice cream. The squishy dough offsets the sweetness of the ice cream inside and is the perfect bold summer treat. This Japanese Mochi Ice Cream is the perfect way to try something new this summer.

Happy baking, Bold Bakers!
