To the people who tell me they don’t have much of a sweet tooth or even (gasp!) “don’t like” desserts, I say: How??? In my world, desserts are their own food group, an important part of maintaining a well-balanced diet. The way I see it, you simply can’t deprive yourself of something our brains were literally hardwired to enjoy. That’s on biology.
But that being said, I don’t always have a pan of fudge brownies or cheesecake bars lying around the house. Sometimes, whipping up a whole batch of something just sounds like too much work and you require a sweet treat stat. I feel that. So in the spirit of not skipping dessert, I compiled some of the best single-serving dessert recipes I could find. Bookmark this for when those late-night cravings kick in and you just need a little something sweet to cap off your day.
