Tasty Desserts Made with Two Ingredients.
I love limited ingredient recipes. Partly because I just think it’s fun to see how only a few ingredients can turn into something amazing, and partly because I like how little they cost! Think about it- if you can make the perfect sandwich bread with just 2 ingredients instead of 6, that’s 4 ingredients worth of money you’re saving. And those little savings add up! And on top of the money saving benefits of limited ingredient foods, they also save you time. Mixing just a few things together never involves as many steps as mixing a bunch of stuff together. If you’re curious what you can make with only a few ingredients, you’ll love these 14 Mouth-Watering 2-Ingredient Desserts!

It doesn’t sound true, but it is- all you need are 2 ingredients to make a delicious dessert! Of course, a 2-ingredient treat will never have the complex flavor profile of a more complicated dessert. But when all you want is something sweet and delicious, and you want it now, you don’t care about that. Save the Gordon Ramsay style desserts for another time, and instead satisfy your sweet tooth in a jiffy with these awesome 2-ingredient desserts!
14 Mouth-Watering 2-Ingredient Desserts
These 2-ingredient desserts are literally only made with 2 ingredients. You won’t find any here that use cake mix or commercial dough. But don’t worry, you really only need 2 simple ingredients to make a delicious dessert! Here are some tips to consider before getting started:
- Make one serving. Some of these recipes make just one serving; perfect for a midnight snack! Use a mug and warm in the microwave to create some of these sweet treats.
- Make ahead. Some of the desserts require freezing or fridge time before they can be enjoyed. So make them ahead of time to have something yummy to snack on when your sweet tooth strikes.
- Don’t overthink these recipes. These recipes are designed to be simple and made quickly. Don’t worry about being too picky or precise.
