Curated Quick and Easy Dessert Recipes Just for Couples
Nothing like putting three of my favorites words into one recipe title but Tiffany at Saving Talents has done just that with this recipe from Sara!
What an amazing quick snack for couples (and I suppose you could share with the kiddos too if there is anything left over)
You could also make more if you are having friends over for a movie night!
Sara says "The beauty of this recipe is in it’s simplicity and in it’s customizability. You can throw in whatever you want to the Nutella mixture: M&M’s, granola, shredded nuts, etc. It is a very sweet, rich recipe so just keep that in mind when you throw in additional ingredients. If you aren’t a fan of super sweet things, don’t throw in even more sweet ingredients! Balance it out with a few savory items instead."
Who does not love salted caramel and who doesn't love delicious ice cream? Well, here Wendy at Daisies and Pie combines two of these faves to make one delicious dessert!
Wendy says "
You’ll just LOVE these mini salted caramel ice-cream sundaes, they’re completely delicious, nutty, salty and oh so sweet! And.. did you notice the portion size?! I finally think I’ve got the right portion size for dessert! (…..making these practically dietous… HA!)"
Thanks Wendy for sharing this awesome recipe with us!!
Sara from Well if She Can Do It has shared this amazing recipe with us that will be perfect for a nice date night at home with your spouse!
Sara says "When it comes to cookie cakes, classic chocolate chip is always the best. At least that’s what I used to think until the moment I discovered this triple layer cookie cake. I mean, it’s almost impossible you don’t love it with all your heart too the second you make it."
Laura at Joy Food Sunshine shared this amazingly decadent lava cake with us and I am so glad she did because I LOVE me some molten lava cake and chocolate...well, need I say more? No I will let Laura say it.
She says "This Easy Molten Chocolate Lava Cake recipe is made with 6 ingredients in 20 minutes and includes gluten-free options! Check out the step-by-step photos, instructions and video showing how to make the best chocolate lava cakes EVER!"
Mug cakes are all the rage and we have another fun recipe from Sara at Well if She Can Do It! This funfetti mug cake will not only make your spouse smile but your kids will likely be barging in demanding some as well.
Sara says "This Funfetti mug cake is a birthday cake in a mug! It’s so delicious I don’t think I want to bake a traditional cake ever again! The result is a super fluffy, super moist and incredibly good mug cake that’s perfect for celebrating a birthday or just for celebrating anything worth celebrating."
Another mug cake recipe that will have you wanting more!
This one is from Chocolates and Chai and like most mug cakes, it is easy to make!
Riz from Chocolates and Chai says "Quick, sweet, and hits the spot every time. That’s how I describe this strawberry shortcake mug cake recipe – it can be ready in less than 5 minutes, it’s gorgeous to look at, and even better to eat."
Zona from Zona Cooks has some great recipes for two and she shared this amazing Black Forest Pie with us.
This is perfect for a nice date night at home and easy to make too.
Zona says "Black Forest Pie is the perfect combination of rich fudgy chocolate and cherry filling, topped with a layer of cherries, and a layer of whipped cream speckled with shaved baker’s chocolate all nestled in a flaky pie crust."
Terri at Food and Meanderings may just be my favorite person right now because I am on a diet and when you say "healthy" and "cake" in the same sentence, you have my attention!!
Terri inspires us by saying "My Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Valentine's Day Icebox Cake is a no bake, heart-shaped cake, made with healthy avocado chocolate mousse and skinny whipped cream. It's also Weight Watchers friendly @ 12 WW points on the blue plan, for an entire cake."
Ok Terri...you definitely have our attention (and affection)!
Jennifer at Low Carb With Jennifer has also provided us with another healthy dessert we can serve up if we are watching our carbs!
So for those of us doing Keto this is a great dessert option!
Jennifer says "Skip making a huge dessert when you want to feed that sweet tooth craving! These individual Keto Strawberry Crips is the perfect combination of sweet and salty! This super easy, satisfying dessert is the best treat to keep you on track!"
Check out some of Jennifer's other recipes as well if you are on the Keto diet or just trying to stay low carb!
When you use the words "air fryer" I am instantly intrigued. I am so in love with my air fryer...I would literally make anything in it so when I hear brownies..you win me over.
Kay from Life Begins With Dessert shared this wonderful recipe with us.
Kay says "Satisfy your chocolate cravings anytime when you make these delicious Air Fryer Brownies. This recipe is perfect for making a small batch of brownies without turning on the oven. These Air Fryer Brownies are fudgy and chewy, perfect for the whole family!"
I love strawberry mousse so I had to include this fabulously easy recipe from Caroline at Caroline's Cooking.
Mousse is always a good choice for desserts and this is perfect for two!
Caroline says "This easy strawberry mousse is a delicious balance of wonderful strawberry flavor and smooth creaminess. This recipe comes together easily and being made ahead, it's perfect for entertaining."
And let's continue with Caroline for this lovely mini skillet brownie.
I am such a huge fan of cast iron skillets, going back to my time living in South Carolina. I have made apple pies and many other desserts in them but not brownies so my mini skillet that has been sitting in my kitchen is coming on out!
Caroline says "While most recipes I found are great if you're baking for a crowd, normally we don't need anything near that much. So, I decided it was time to adapt them for less people. And this smaller batch brownie worked out perfectly, if I do say so myself."
I love this idea Caroline and I can see myself making these on a regular basis!
As a NYer...I am a cheesecake girl and, as I said earlier, you say air fryer and I am intrigued.
This recipe from Danielle at Went There 8 This is a definite must if you are an air fryer person like me!!
Danielle says "Rich, creamy, and with a subtle sweetness to compliment the tang, this Air Fryer Cheesecake recipe is so quick and to make. A classic cream cheese filling overtop of a graham cracker crust, you’ll love how simple it is to put together.
Making cheesecakes in the air fryer is perfect if you don’t want to make a giant one for only one to two servings. This air fryer cheesecake recipe makes two small cheesecakes."
