No Bake Scotcheroos on a White Plate

Microwaving Scotcheroos, a no bake dessert, keeps them soft, chewy, and crispy. Gimme these chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, and crispy cereal bars!

Scotcheroos are dessert bars made with rice crispy cereal, sugar, peanut butter, and topped with melted chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Basically, they are similar to a peanut butter Rice Krispie treat. Not only are they easy to make, but you only need 6 ingredients. Best of all, they are delicious!

Growing up, Scotcheroos were never in my family’s recipe box. Yet, they were the first thing I always went for at potlucks. As I got older, I didn’t want to wait for the next church social to have one. The problem was, I didn’t even know what they were called.

So, I waited until the next potluck, and as fate would have it, someone brought them! I tracked down the neighbor that brought them and begged her for the recipe. Incredulous, she couldn’t believe I’d want such a simple recipe. How would I know it was simple?! Thankfully, she wrote it down for me, and it’s been one of my most treasured recipes since. Truly a childhood favorite!

7Up Pound Cake

In this elevated classic recipe for 7UP Pound Cake, the lemon and lime flavors really shine through! Includes a moist, crumbly cake and yummy citrus glaze.

The first time my mom brought home a 7UP cake from the grocery store, she was hooked. Because my mom loved it so much, our family continued eating this cake for weeks! Of course, it wasn’t the same cake. Rather, my mom kept bringing them home!

7UP Pound Cake is a classic recipe that’s been around for years. When making the cake, 7UP soda is added directly to the batter. Adding the soda really gives this cake a great texture and flavor.

When Cook’s Country came out with a recipe for an elevating the classic 7UP Pound cake, I knew I had to make it for my mom. In fact, I made it for her for Mother’s day this year. She loved it!

So, my recipe is slightly adapted from the version from Cook’s Country. It’s packed with bright lime and lemon citrus flavors. Plus, it’s not too dense or heavy. It’s the perfect refreshing dessert!

Stuff and bake crescent rolls with pumpkin, spices, sugar, butter, and cream cheese for the easiest and most delicious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings!

Specifically, these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings are great for breakfast or dessert! For easy entertaining, try making them in advance. Your friends and family will never guess how quick preparation is. It will be our little secret! You can just rake in all the compliments and watch the dumplings disappear.

Lemon lovers will beg you to bring these (almost no bake) tart, sweet, rich, and creamy mini raspberry lemon cheesecakes to your next gathering!

This recipe is adapted from Cook’s Country‘s recipe for Lemon Icebox Cheesecake. It is packed full of lemon flavor with the right balance of tart and sweet.

The original recipe makes one 9″ cheesecake, but I adapted the recipe to make mini cheesecakes that can be easily shared and taken to potlucks or other gatherings. How pretty would these look at a 4th of July celebration picnic or barbecue?

The only baking required for this recipe is to set the lemon-flavored crust. The mini raspberry lemon cheesecakes get their fluffy and creamy texture from a gelatin based lemon cream cheese filling that sets up as it chills in the fridge. To really make these cheesecakes special, top the cheesecakes with a stunning swirl of lemon curd and raspberry preserves.
