Chances are, you don’t have an oven in your room. That means baking your favorite desserts is a challenge, especially when you have to use the residence hall’s grimy appliances.
Thankfully, your sweet tooth can be satisfied in more sanitary ways sans oven. Take a look at these 15 super easy (and satisfying) no-bake desserts.
1. Pecan Pie in a Mug
There ain’t no season like pie season. With the holidays around the corner, this recipe will get you into the spirit; even if you’re miles away from home or an oven.
2. No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake
If you love cheesecake, and are obsessed with “Milk’s Favorite Cookie,” I suggest you try out this recipe. This Oreo cheesecake makes 12 servings. That’s enough for 12 days, or to share with your friends.
3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
Not only does this fudge contain my favorite combination (peanut butter and chocolate), but it has a healthy kick to it too. With ingredients like coconut oil, goji berries and walnuts, this is a go-to dessert recipe perfect for health fanatics.
4. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
Love cookie dough but cringe at the thought of getting salmonella? This recipe is egg-less, so it’s completely safe to eat. Although the freezer time is lengthy, the results are totally worth it.

5. Spiced-Cider Floats
With autumn coming to a close, and winter just around the corner, this recipe is meant for this time of the year. Snuggle up in a blanket, put on your favorite Netflix show, and embrace everything this float has to offer.
6. Chocolate Mug Cake
This recipe is quick, easy and once again, healthy. The cake omits butter, reducing the fat content. With this recipe, the microwave will be your best friend (make sure to thank it once you’ve devoured your creation).
7. Brownie Parfait
The original recipe calls for homemade brownies, but they’re completely optional. In order to avoid the use of an oven, grab some brownies from your campus’s dining hall or the local supermarket.
This simple recipe allows you to design your own dessert crepe. Raid your cabinets or dining hall, and get creative. I recommend adding strawberries, bananas, Nutella and whipped cream.
9. Red Velvet Hot Chocolate
Stay warm and make this creamy, red velvet hot chocolate. Red velvet cake can take up to two hours to complete. With this recipe, your red velvet craving is satisfied within 10 minutes without an oven.
10. Drinkable S’Mores
Chances are, you don’t have access to an authentic bonfire, which also sadly means, no s’mores. However, this recipe provides another way to indulge. The drink literally tastes like a s’more with a slight coffee kick.
11. Healthy Dessert Smoothie
This recipe is one of the quickest on the list to make. Taking only three minutes to complete, this smoothie is both protein packed as well as sweet. Enjoy as a dessert, or even as a post-workout snack.

12. Dunkaroos Dip
If you’re feeling nostalgic, this Dunkaroos recipe will take you back to simpler times. Buy yourself some Graham Crackers or sugar cookies, to enjoy this timeless treat.
13. Leftover Fried Rice Pudding
I think this recipe truly defines using your resources. If you had Chinese food the night before, use those leftovers to your advantage. Not only does this recipe put a unique spin on regular rice pudding, but it also prevents food waste on college campuses.
14. Cotton Candy Frappuccino
This recipe is actually from Starbucks’ Secret Menu. Although it’s a frappuccino, it’s coffee-less. So, if you like milkshakes, I would definitely give this recipe a try.
15. Healthy Banana Frozen Yogurt
One of the best parts about this recipe is that its contents can vary. The only crucial ingredient to the frozen yogurt is the frozen banana. Otherwise, add anything from peanut butter to Reeses Pieces, to customize this tasty treat.
