When you're craving a refreshing summer dessert but your house is as hot as an oven, the last thing you want to do is turn on your stove.

The best way to beat the heat is with chilled treats like ice cream, popsicles and other frozen sweets. No-bake desserts are the ideal thing to make for outdoor barbecues and picnics. You'll hardly have to worry about keeping these summer desserts from melting -- they'll be gobbled up even before they have a change to melt.
