Desserts are what make life sweet, but if you don't have the ingredients measured perfectly—or if you accidentally set the oven temperature off a few degrees—the decadent end to your dinner could easily become your trash can's favorite food that evening. Fortunately, the residents of our Plano apartments have shared some of their secret no-bake, simple-to-make recipes that anyone can create.

Crispy cereal's grown up a little! This traditional children's sleepover sweet now comes with a pink coloring, created by cherry gelatin powder.
