10 Summer Dessert Recipes Perfect for Warm-Weather Days

Most of us will never turn down dessert (at least by choice), but when it comes to baking over the summer, you likely want to limit the amount of extra heat radiating around you. So when it comes to the best summer dessert recipes, they either don't require the oven or call for minimal baking time. And for things like cakes that you can't make anywhere other than the oven, you can at least inject them with the best summer has to offer—like fresh strawberries, lemons, or even a floral garnish (now we're talking). 

The truth of the matter is that you can't serve ice cream for every warm-weather get-together (we did include one of our favorite no-churn recipes in case you love an ice cream social). That's why we searched high and low to find things from a simple fondue to a lemon coconut tart to even watermelon popsicles so you can spend less time sweating in the kitchen and more time chilling with family and friends.
