17 Easy Single-Serve Desserts for Nights You Need a Little Something

Baking is great, but you don’t always need all 36 of the cookies that most recipes tend to yield. In fact, sometimes you just need one. That’s where single-serve desserts come in. As their name promises, single-serve desserts have all the benefits of regular homemade desserts—they’re fun to make, you can eat ’em right out of the oven and they let you satisfy a sweets craving without leaving the house—without the sometimes pesky leftovers

Obviously there’s nothing wrong with having dozens of cookies around, but if you live alone or with just a few people and don’t have anywhere to take your baked goods, half the batch often ends up getting thrown away after several days of cookie grazing. Which means, single-serve desserts also reduce food waste, which is something you can feel good about.

And sure, it’s possible to satisfy a dessert craving without actually baking anything. You could whip up an ice cream sundae, or raid your chocolate stash, for example. But sometimes, only a fresh-out-of-the-oven dessert will do. At times like those, reach for one of these single-serve dessert recipes—many are made in the oven, some in the microwave and a few don’t need to be cooked at all. No matter your mood or your equipment situation, there’s a dessert here for you.
