Whether you’re celebrating a holiday, birthday, or just having a get-together with friends, having delicious desserts is a must. But what if you’re not a confident baker or just don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen? Don’t worry!

There are plenty of easy and impressive no-bake desserts you can whip up in no time. In this article, we’ll share 5 of our favorites that will make your guests think you spent all day in the kitchen.

  1. Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

One of the easiest and most elegant desserts you can make is chocolate-dipped strawberries. All you need are fresh strawberries and melting chocolate, which you can find at any grocery store.

Wash and dry the strawberries, then melt the chocolate and dip each strawberry in, letting the excess drip off. Place the strawberries on a sheet of wax paper to cool and harden. You can drizzle some extra chocolate on top or dust with powdered sugar for an extra flair.

  1. No-Bake Cheesecake Bars

If you’re a fan of cheesecake but don’t want to spend hours baking it, these no-bake cheesecake bars are perfect for you. Mix cream cheese, whipped cream, Greek yogurt, and a sweetener of your choice (such as honey, sugar, or syrup) in a bowl. Optionally, you can add a dash of lemon or lime juice for a little extra zing, and vanilla extract to tie it all together.

Crush some graham crackers into a powder and mix them with melted butter and sugar. The mixture should look like wet sand. Form the mixture into an even layer at the bottom of a baking dish. Pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the crust and refrigerate for a few hours until it’s set.

Once it’s set, you can add a topping of your choice. Whatever topping you choose, we recommend sweetening it with this recipe for cannabis syrup on Veriheal. You can use it to amp up both your drinks and desserts!

  1. Shortcut Fudge

Looking for a quick and easy dessert to wow your guests at your next party? Look no further than “Shortcut Fudge” – a delicious and decadent no-bake treat that is sure to impress everyone. And the best part? It’s incredibly simple to make.

Then remove from the heat and fold in your favorite chocolate (melted), and any other additions you like (nuts, marshmallows, dried fruit, etc). Spread the mixture into a parchment-lined container, and chill in the fridge until firm.

In just a few short hours, you’ll have a delectable dessert that is sure to have your guests begging for seconds!
