Three ingredients doesn’t sound like many. But it’s enough to whip up some of the most deliciously clever recipes we’ve tasted in years.


From caramel-kissed pears to Nutella™ Brownie Pie, scroll on through and check out the options. Every one calls for just three easy add-ins; every one tastes like three million bucks. Totally easy, absolutely delicious. You gotta try ‘em all!


1. Caramel Pie Pears

Three ingredients have never been so gorgeous! Pie crust wrapped around fresh pears makes for stunning (and stunningly simple!) presentation.


Drizzled with caramel sauce, this easy dessert becomes absolutely irresistible.


2. Nutella™ Brownie Pie 

You already know Nutella™ and eggs make for totally delicious 2-ingredient brownies. So we decided to up the ante by one ingredient, turning this classic combo into a 3-ingredient brownie pie. The results are splendid—rich and gooey, with a kiss of hazelnut flavor.


You may never make another pie again!


3. Maple Bacon Crack

Pillsbury® Crescents are already impossibly delicious. So, imagine what happens when you top it all off with candied maple syrup and bacon, baking until golden brown and toffee-like? Yeah. This is a thing. And it’s as good as you’re imagining right now.



4. Hot Fudge Icebox Cake

If you’ve never turned ice cream sandwiches into an ice cream cake, this easy little recipe is about to change everything. Stack up some sandwiches, slather ‘em with hot fudge and cover with whipped cream. Then freeze until sliceable.



5. Cherry Pie Bars

These cobbler-topped Cherry Pie Bars are sooo simple to make. Toss out those long lists of ingredients and shortcut your way to sweet eating with cherry pie filling and Pillsbury™ sugar cookie dough, all cobblered together into scrumptiousy cookie bars. A must-try dessert, make this one 24 hours ahead for best results.



6. Cookie Butter Lava Cake

Cookie butter turned into a lava cake… with 3-ingredients?! Yes. Yes. It’s true. The universe has aligned. The world is complete. It’s happy lava lovely. And no, we’re not getting carried away here. This recipe is that good.


Grab a bowl, pick your fave and whip up any one of these 3-ingredient treats. Your sweet tooth is about to thank you, big time!
