I’ve always had a complicated relationship with the summer weather. I love the summer heat on the weekend, when I am lying on a beach with a nice ocean breeze. But Monday through Friday, the heat is not my friend. Some days it is just too stinkin’ hot to slave away in a hot kitchen, and oh-so-easy to break out that tub of Rocky Road instead. Well, crank up that A/C and rest easy, because these no-bake desserts allow you to indulge—no oven, no guilt.
