Who doesn't love desserts? Pretty much no one. Who doesn't love making desserts? A lot of people.

The thing about desserts is that they tend to be somewhat difficult to make and even more difficult to make well. That's why when most people want something sweet, they just go buy ice cream or bake cookies with pre-made dough. And there's nothing wrong with that. But sometimes you want to get a little more adventurous with your treats, and that means you might have to make them yourself. GASP.

Luckily for us less-than-average chefs, there are simple recipes like these that require fewer than five (yes, five!) ingredients, but make delicious desserts.
