Review: What’s For Dessert

I love watching Claire Saffitz’s videos so I couldn’t wait to check out her dessert cookbook. She breaks down the items she keeps on hand in her kitchen, both appliances and ingredients. Each recipe has a difficulty rating and there are lots of easy recipes, so I felt right at home trying some!

I started out with her hot chocolate recipe, accompanied by her homemade marshmallows. Yum!! Perfect for a cool fall evening. So excited to dig deeper into this book and I’m already pondering what to try next.



Claire Saffitz returns with 100 recipes for all dessert people—whether you’re into impressive-yet-easy molten lava cakes, comforting rice pudding, or decadent chestnut brownies. In this all-new collection, Claire shares recipes for icebox cakes, pies, cobblers, custards, cookies and more, all crafted to be as streamlined as possible. (No stand mixer? No problem! You won’t need one.) To keep the recipes straightforward and simple, Claire makes sure each recipe is extra efficient, whether you’re making a Whipped Tres Leches Cake with Hazelnuts or Caramel Peanut Popcorn Bars. Fans will find all the warmth, encouragement, and deliciously foolproof recipes with loads of troubleshooting advice that they’ve come to count on from Claire.
