I love dessert as much as the next person, but I don’t consider myself much of a baker.

I’m an OK cook — I can throw together a pretty decent pasta dish or stir fry. But when it comes to dessert, I usually let other people take the reins.

Honestly, making sweet treats always seems like too much effort. So many of them take hours in the oven or such precision on the stove that it seems like too much of a commitment to take on.

Think about it, have you ever watched people bake or make other desserts on television? Cupcake competitions and holiday sweet championships are huge on TV, but sometimes even the professionals struggle!

Well, if you’re like me and usually buy premade desserts from the store, you’re going to love these four 2-ingredient recipes.

Every single one only uses two simple ingredients! And no, it’s not just putting a cookie on a plate and grabbing a glass of milk and calling it good. These are real desserts that you can be proud to serve at your next dinner party!

In the video below, you’ll learn how to make Oreo-flavored popcorn, chocolate fudge, simple chocolate mousse, and Nutella hot cocoa. And yes, each one only requires two ingredients!
