  • there are all kinds of boxed desserts and no-bake boxed desserts that are very good. Brownies are always a hit. Dress them up with chocolate chips or frosting. Rice krispie treats are easy and fairly quick. Ready made pie crusts are available in the grocery store and come in shells ready to fill, orfrozen and just need thawed and crimped. Pie filling comes in tons of varieties canned, or instant chocolate pudding (or any flav) and cool whip and crushed oreos makes a great pie in a graham cracker or sugar cookie crust (available already made) And speaking of pudding.... and old standby favorite in our house is banana pudding with the vanilla wafers and sliced bananas. If youre looking for something healthy, elegant, or truly homemade, there are thousands of recipes at that you can search by ingredients. there are reviews written by real people that let you know if they made any changes and how they liked it too.

  • I like the Bisquick Impossible Pies - pumpkin, apple, coconut, pumpkin cheescake, & cheescake.

    This website has videos and a custard one I like.

    And a brownie one

    I hope the links work. Everyone loves these pies. You can make them in the blender for easy clean-up. Easy enough for kids to do. Usually 5 ingredients.

  • Okay, get a brownie pan. A bunch of thin mint (or whatever brand) cookies, some melted butter (3ish tablespoons), an 8 ounce thing of coolwhip, and about 1/2 gallon of peppermint ice cream. Crush the thin mints until it makes enough to cover the brownie pan. Mix with butter. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes (it'll make a crust. Mix the ice cream and coolwhip, maybe add some food coloring. Spread it on top of the COOLED crust. Freeze. Tasty!

  • A graham cracker crust, 2 small containers of a thick fruit yogurt(the greek style works really well) and a container of CoolWhip. Mix the yogurt with the CoolWhip, put it in the crust, chill and eat. YUM!

  • Someone suggested snickers salad to me once and it was quick, easy and tasty. Chop up granny smith apples, add chopped snickers and before serving mix in a small container of cool whip! Very yummy and it has fruit and candy!
