These Trader Joe’s Desserts Look Amazing (And Are So Easy To Make)

Share

There are many reasons to love Trader Joe’s: the crazy-affordable fare, the vast assortment of ready-made apps, entrees and sides (that when plated can pass for homemade) and, of course, the unconventional guilty pleasures you sure can’t cop at your local supermarket. We might even argue the unique snacks are the best part about TJ’s, so you can imagine our excitement when we stumbled across some daring dessert recipes created by the chain itself that require little to no cook time. Seriously. From matcha cupcakes to boozy chocolate floats, here are seven sweet treats we can’t wait to make. Oh TJ’s, what would we ever do without you?
