15 Easy Desserts with 3 Ingredients To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth (2024)

Having a list of desserts with 3 ingredients like this one can really come in handy. Recipes that require minimal ingredients and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes are like gold!

Here are a few scenarios when you might especially benefit from 3 ingredient desserts:

This post may contain affiliate links.

Scenario #1: You have a major sweet tooth! You need a quick dessert recipe that calls for simple ingredients you already have on hand.

Scenario #2: You dreamt up a beautiful dessert table for your party, forgetting you will have to make or buy each of those delicious desserts you dreamed of. Easy desserts like these can save you time and money.

Scenario #3: You asked if you could provide anything for a dinner party just to be polite, but they took you up on the offer! Now you have to be a good friend and follow through with a recipe that has the potential to be a huge hit. Rather than wading through your favorite desserts that require a ton of ingredients, just pick an easy one from the list!

There you have it! Desserts with 3 ingredients can really save the day.

This list not only features easy recipes; it also offers some unique sweet treats. You won’t find basic chocolate-covered raisins or chocolate-covered pretzels here. And most of them are no-bake recipes!

However, you may see one or two overnight oats recipes. No, they aren’t typically considered dessert, but they could really be eaten as a tasty breakfast or dessert (just add white chocolate, milk chocolate, cookie dough, and more)!

If you want to broaden your search to easy party desserts that require more than 3 ingredients but are still simple to make, check out my list of 33 Easy Party Desserts.

I also have an authentic French chocolate truffle recipe that you need to try. That one requires just 5 ingredients and makes a delicious dessert. I accompanied my step-by-step instructions with photos so you can make your own scrumptious French chocolate truffles.

Let’s jump into these tasty desserts with 3 ingredients!
