Simple Weeknight Desserts – Frugal Treats The Whole Family Will Love

We don’t do a lot of desserts, but it’s nice to have some quick and easy ideas for those nights when the kids deserve a little something special, or when dinner is a little light and you need something else to round out the meal. It usually has to be quick and easy to throw together for it to happen during the week. One thing I do is bake a batch of muffins, cookies, brownies or even a simple cake on the weekend and use that for dessert during the week (or at least the first part of the week until they are gone).

Cookies and brownies are always a favorite here. I make a batch or two on the weekend and hide most of them in a tin on top of the fridge to be used later in the week. If they are sitting out on the counter or in the cookie jar, they’d be gone by Monday.

I’m always looking for new ideas, which is why I posted the following on FB a few days ago:
