Six Dorm Room Desserts | Back To School



Hey Cakenista's! It's back to school time and I am here once again to share some delicious quick and easy desserts. You guys loved my Five Dorm Room Desserts video from a couple years ago. So, I decided to do another video on desserts that you can make in a pinch with little equipment! For me, living on campus or away from home made me crave snacks or warm desserts that weren't accessible being in a dorm. My classmates and I made the best of the situation by loading up on snacks and candy. And as culinary students we got a little innovative at times with our food. 

With  just a few staples (and a dorm room dessert recipe or two) you can make sure you'll always have what you need when craving something sweet. These recipes aren't just for the dorm. They're great for lazy days when you want to whip something up without spending all day in the kitchen. 

Watch this video tutorial and also check out my previous 5 Dorm Room Desserts video for more fun ideas.

No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake (low carb)


1 C Heavy or Whipping Cream
4 oz cream cheese (softened)
1/2 box of sugar free strawberry jello powder

Optional Crust:
2 tbsp melted butter
5 tbsp almond flour
2 tsp monkfruit sweetener

-Pour cream into a large container, and add jello powder. Whip on low or slowly by hand to incorporate jello powder. Then continue whipping until the cream and thickened. Be sure not to over mix! The cheesecake mixture will continue to thicken as it sits.

Combine all crust ingredients in a large serving dish. Pat the crust to the bottom of the dish and gently smooth cream cheese mixture on top. Allow to set in the fridge for 1 hour or enjoy right away.
