We’re living the same kitchen realities you are, especially the challenges of finding flour, butter, yeast and eggs. But what if you still want to brighten your extended time at home with some sweet treats? Here are a few ideas for things you can make without those sought-after supplies.
Salted Marshmallow Walnut Fudge, above. Sweetened condensed milk is the secret to fudge that’s quick and easy to make. Use the walnuts and marshmallows if you have or like them, or pivot to whatever add-ins you prefer and are in your pantry.
Sesame Candies. Stock up on sesame seeds for these dainty treats. They remind me of the plastic-wrapped candies my grandpa always seemed to have in his pocket when I was a kid.
Dark and Stormy Icebox Cake. Combine cocktails with dessert in this no-bake creation. The main ingredients are heavy cream and gingersnaps.
Chocolate Almond Cookies. If you like a delicate cookie, try this vegan- and gluten-free recipe. There’s no better time to pull out that bag of almond meal you stashed in the freezer and forgot about (can’t just be me, right?).
Chocolate Almost-Mousse. Missing dinners out? Make your at-home dates feel a little more like a restaurant with a stellar and classy dessert.
That Cream Cheese Cool Whip Pie. Kids will love making and eating this semi-homemade, cheesecake-ish pie. The filling can be adapted to incorporate your choice of cookie or candy.
