Frugal Desserts

Dessert, who doesn’t like dessert?  Especially quick, easy, and frugal desserts.

Would you like a piece of Easy Lemon Cheesecake Dessert

or Chocolate Marshmallow Pie

or maybe you would prefer Lemon Bars

or my No Bake Chocolate Cookie Bars.

Did I make you hungry?

What is your favorite quick, easy, and frugal dessert to make?

  2. Stephanie says:

    Lemonade Pie

    2 graham cracker pie crusts
    2 containers Cool Whip
    2 cans sweetened condensed milk
    1 can lemonade

    Combine Cool Whip, sweetened condensed milk, and lemonade. Stir until thoroughly combined and creamy. Pour into two pie crusts. Freeze overnight, and serve frozen.

    My mom made this when I was growing up, and it’s a summer staple at my own house now.

  3. There are so many, but I love slow cooker applesauce. It doesn’t get much cheaper or easier and with all the spices, served warm I think it’s a great dessert.

  4. You did make me hungry Lynn, I never would of thought to do the no bake cookies into bars. ~genius~ Thanks.

  5. I tried the no-bake chocolate bars tonight and they were a HUGE hit around here. They were so yummy that I shared them with 2 friends. Thanks!

    • @Leslie, I am so glad that you liked them. My family likes them better than the no bake cookies. It is basically the same thing, but in a bar, but we still like them better. Thanks for letting me know!

  6. Hi there! Niki here, dropping in from over at Free 2 Be Frugal. I really enjoyed your Frugal Friday post…those dessert photos have me drooling all over my keyboard!

    Stop by and see me sometime.


  7. YUMMY! Love lemon bars and I wouldn’t have ever thought of putting the no bake cookies into bars. Cool! 😀

  8. Homemade popsicles! Quick to make (though they take some time to freeze):

  9. Yes, you did make me hungry! My favorite frugal dessert is brown butter rice crispy treats! It’s similar to the regular recipe, but you brown the butter first, which gives them a whole new flavor without much extra cost (I say much extra b/c there is more butter in them). I know rice krispies has malt in them so are you not allowed to have them? If so, sorry I offered up something you can’t enjoy. I know you can get gluten-free rice cereal but I’m sure if it’s labeled “gluten-free” it’s automatically 4x more expensive! :(

  10. My husband has been asking for your chocolate marshmallow mousse- we love to serve it to guests.

  11. I am trying the no bake bars with Nulla instead of chocolate chips (I never seem to have any). So far very yummy!
