Sweet Summer Treats without the Heat

Who wants to bake in the summertime? The heat's high enough without the help of hot ovens. But what do you do when a cookie craving strikes? You could hop in the car – but those sun-warmed seats are so far away! You could grab some ice cream instead, but right now you know your sweet tooth wants something to chomp on.  You eye your oven mitts wearily, inching toward them in sweaty dread – but wait! There's a way you can satisfy your craving and keep the house cool. Leave the oven off this summer and whip one one of these no-bake desserts instead.
