I was watching Dora the other day.

Well, my daughter was watching while I held her and the infamous **chocolate song** came on, “*Bat-ay, Bat-ay, choc-o-lat-ay, mix your chocolate all around!*” And then they proceed to lick the bowl.

That’s it. That’s the treat.

Really, it’s genius.

**Dessert** shouldn’t take a long time, require more than 5 steps or give you major frustration, *it’s supposed to be a ‘treat.’*

I mentioned these easy peasy doughnut holes in my **Week 1 Get Happy for FREE challenge.**

A treat shouldn’t take more then five steps. Cut the biscuits in half and press them down a little before dropping in the oil. Soak them on paper towels or brown paper bags. That’s it! All add-ons are optional: sugar, cinnamon, chocolate or caramel for dipping.

I made these for my son’s First Grade Class. When I went to pick him up the kids were asking for the recipe! First graders! They really are so good.

After making them, I was inspired to keep a list of two ingredient desserts handy.No need to end a meal without a little something sweet.

Here are forty more dessert recipes that only require **two ingredients**!

I had no idea there were so many 2 ingredient recipes! Thanks for including my ice cream muffins!

I know right! So many of them, and your muffins sound so yummy!

Thanks for including my lemon mousse on your list! I am going to have to try some of these other yummy looking EASY desserts!! Just like I like ‘em!

Thanks Patti! I love lemon curd so I was excited to find your dessert!

Wow, thanks so much for sharing! I have a friend that I know will LOVE this post because the fewer ingredients, the better! I will be passing this along.

Thanks Shelly! I love simple! The easier the better, especially when it comes to dessert.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I love this post!

I’m bookmarking it for future reference. I don’t often do deserts because most just seem to need too many ingredients and take a lot of time and I’m not much of a cook. But these! Easy enough for me…and lots of choices….we could have a different one every day for weeks.

I was thinking the same thing, it’s like a different one every week for the whole year!

What a great list! I’m saving this for a quick treat later!

Oh my goodness, I never thought about half of these. They are creative, simple and cheap?! Thank you so much for sharing these!!

Enjoy! Yes, super cheap!

Love, love love this post! I am intimidated by recipes with more than three ingredients. I can definitely handle just two though!

Desserts should be easy right?! Hope you try some!

These look so delicious, I can’t wait to work some into our meal plan!

Thanks for including mine! I love easy dessert

This is the most genius idea for a dessert post ever! I’ll be keeping this around for easy desserts to make with and for my boy.

So funny, thanks Janet!

What a great list. The pumpkin brownies are right up my aisle for sure. I have a ton of pumpkin frozen and will be adding this to the menu. Thank you for the list.

I wish I had kept more pumpkin from the Fall!

Oh my! These all sound amazing. My desserts are so elaborate and exhausting! Now I know where to come!

These are fun for quick in the middle of the week.

I love this recipe list! I always have a terrible time thinking of simple sweets for my kids and I bookmarked this list to remember. They love you to bits now.

Haha, thanks Manda! No excuses anymore for dessert right?

I can’t believe how many two ingredient desserts there are! I never would have thought about some of these combinations. Your donuts look especially delicious!

I was pretty surprised too when I started looking them up!

I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for gathering them all together! Pinning this so I can find it later.

This looks like one yummy list..already eying the peanut butter fudge one! (my favorite)

I want to try the fudge ones, they look so easy!

Thanks for the great list! I love anything that is easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients!

This is a brilliant list! And those doughnuts are by far my favorite!

What an awesome list! I always think I can’t make a dessert because I don’t have all the ingredients… I’m sure I can find one on this list!

Thank you SO much for this list! I need something REALLY quick and easy for a potluck tomorrow and I found the strawberry fudge recipe. I already have chips in the fridge at home so this morning I picked up the frosting on the way to work. It should take about 10 minutes to put together tonight. Whoo hoo!

Awesome! Have a great potluck!
