Since we’re all spending time at home, why not grab this chance as the perfect opportunity to hone your culinary skills? Even if said skills could only tolerate combining a maximum 3 ingredients, it’s still worth the effort. And if you’re craving sweets but can’t be bothered to order online due to soaring delivery fees, making your cravings is the next best thing. Our favorite part? These recipes won’t burn a hole in your pocket!
Milo Graham Float
It wouldn’t be a perfect summer (no matter the circumstances) without having Graham float for dessert at least once. It’s difficult to buy mangoes these days, so reserve your Mango Graham cravings for another month. You can instead make the equally satisfying Milo Graham Float. All you’ll need is Milo, a can of sweetened condensed milk, crushed Graham crackers, and lots of chill time in the freezer.
Aside from the fact that this ASMR recipe video is so satisfying to watch, the Chocolate Truffles look so delectable too. You will need a 240g can of condensed milk and 100g of cocoa powder and that’s it! Once you get out of quarantine, this is also a great idea to give to the special someone in your life.
Sometimes you just want to feel fancy and what spells fancy more than having S’mores for dessert? Making a s’mores dip is a lot less messy than roasting marshmallows and shoving it between crackers the traditional way. You just need chocolate chips, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and marshmallows. Layer them on a cast-iron skillet, pop them in the oven, and be ready to dip your Graham crackers.
Moist Chocolate Cake
Is anyone’s birthday coming up? Don’t worry about ordering a cake, you can make your own 3-ingredient cake at home. All you need is leftover mixed biscuits, baking powder, milk — that’s it. No flour and eggs needed. If you don’t have an oven, you can opt to put the batter in a cooker instead.
Chocolate Ice Cream
Once you make this easy 3-ingredient chocolate ice cream, you might never buy tubs from the supermarket again. This ASMR recipe video will teach you how to make ice cream sans machine: 400g Whipping cream, 140g Condensed milk, and 60g Cocoa powder.
You can also experiment with the flavors once you’re confident with your homemade ice cream making skills. Here’s an easy 3-ingredient Milo ice cream recipe you can try your luck with.
Peanut Butter Cookies
Another easy snack with basic ingredients are Peanut Butter Cookies. This recipe simply calls for just peanut butter, white sugar, and eggs. Once you line up the cookie dough on the pan to put in the oven, you can press down with a fork and design it however you want.
For that melt-in-your-mouth light and airy sweetness, the 2-ingredient Chocolate Mousse will make you into a star. All you will need is 200g of semi-sweet dark chocolate and 400mL of whipping cream.
Anyone can cook and even something that sounds as daunting as brownies can be achieved. This easy 3-ingredient brownie recipe only needs Nutella, eggs, and flour. Pop it in the oven and voila, you’ve got yourself a midnight snack that you family will fight over. It’s that good.
