My favorite part of making cookies isn't the actual cookie, it's the dough. I could probably eat about 12 bowls of it, but that might lead to salmonella poisoning. If you (and your kids) love eating raw cookie dough as much as I do, make one of these desserts instead. No food poisoning required.

These egg-free, no-bake desserts are perfect for any event or time of day. In fact, we've even heard from a friend that the dip makes a great breakfast. Paired with fruit, of course. You know, to make it healthy.
