Desserts are highly underrated; some people easily skip dessert altogether, however, for those of us with a sweet tooth, we are all too familiar with our sugar cravings and the restlessness we feel until we’ve had our dose of sugary treats.

As for kids and sweets? Pff, desserts are pretty much essential for them. Any parent knows just how hard it is to get them to put down their sugary snacks before dinnertime. So, how about giving them something worth waiting for? Even better, use the enthusiasm and efforts of your kiddos to have them experiment with making these easy, creative no-bake desserts.
