I’d never made truffles before but it turns out that they’re basically just balls of ganache that has been half-set and rolled up and they took all of a few minutes to make (plus setting time). You can basically make them any flavor by adding ingredients to the cream too.
If you want to impress people but put as little effort in to it as possible, make Eton Mess. A classic British trifle style dessert it’s a simple layering of a few key ingredients that can easily be purchased from the store. Like icebox cakes it takes a mere five minutes to make something delicious….
When people want a quick dessert they reach for cookies but these doughnut holes can be made in just about 20 minutes and they’re sure to impress because who makes doughnuts these days?
