A delicious, six-ingredient dessert? Yes, please. These pretty pops are perfect for outdoor summer dining. 

Carrot Snack Cake

Carrots in a bag? Not this snack time! A lush cut of this on-the-go dessert is just what you crave, and thanks to some whole wheat flour, you can feel better about eating it, too!

Peppermint Fudge Pie with Peppermint Chantilly Cream

Fudge and peppermint. Do you even have to ask? The genius duo comes together in the slow cooker -- just fill it with water and pop the covered jars in!

Neapolitan Marshmallow Treats

These fun Neapolitan treats settle any argument over which flavor is best. All three! They're great to grab on the go -- just be sure to keep some hand sanitizer on hand because they're ooey-gooey good. 

Candied Ginger

We can't help it: We love ginger. So we treated ourselves to a jar of it -- candy store style. Make an entire batch with just 4 ingredients!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Come on, you didn't think we'd forget the classic cookie, did you? Go with regular or gluten free flour; either way, this grab-and-go dessert never disappoints.

Mango-Chili Ice Pops

In the words of Katy Perry, this pop is totally "Hot n Cold." The fruity dessert hits practically every flavor profile: sweet + sunny mango, face-scrunching lime, and kickin' chili powder.

Peanut Butter Cups

What makes these chocolate peanut butter cups better than the store-bought stuff? They're bigger and feature double the peanut goodness! Use paper baking cups for easy snatching.

Salted Caramel Fudge

It's true: This salted caramel fudge tastes as good as it looks. The secret? A can of dulce de leche and sea salt flakes. Swirl a knife in the batter for a marbled look.

Gluten Free Sweet Ricotta and Strawberry Parfaits

This isn't your usual berries and cream. We infuse fluffy ricotta cheese with lemon peel for a fresh parfait you'll be taking two of!

We'll show you how to whip up this layered dessert with the classic flavors of strawberry and rhubarb. Perfect for sharing, it's served in a pretty, portable jar.

Why You Should Eat Rhubarb

Easy Monster Cookie Bars

Monster cookies for a monster craving. Baked with hearty oats, chocolate, and peanuts, it's no wonder these to-go desserts tame even the biggest of growls. 

Dessert Fruit Pizza

Pizza just got pretty thanks to this bright, honeyed beauty. Smear a cookie dough crust with amaretto cream cheese, then top with all your favorite fruits for a slice you won't forget.

Red-Plaid Cookies

If you weren't mad for plaid before, you will be now. Bag the checkered cookies for a vintage back-to-school treat. Bonus: You can freeze these cookies up to three months!
