no oven sweets

Hubby is a huge sweets fan. BUT...he is also picky on his sweets.

He loves cookies, pies, candy bars...he hates dark and semisweet chocolate. Loves milk and white chocolate.

I prefer to make stuff instead of buying. With this heat, I refuse to turn on the oven.

Other than no bake cookies and Rice Krispy bars, are there any suggestions? I can handle the stove and of course, the microwave.

Thanks!

Pudding he can do but it's "not the same". His teeth are bad so ice cream is OUT (they want to do dentures on him and he's 35)....

It's a combo of no dental care as a kid and adult (until we got together), too mcuh acid in his body, and just poor dental hygine. He's good now with brushing.

Yup, they want to take all the top out and give him a partial on the bottom. Right now he only has ONE molar and it's broke and full of cavities. He has to be very very very careful what he eats.

We are flat broke but the GOOD thing is that we DO have dental insurance to help cover some of it!

Try a milk chocolate mousse. Very light and smooth. Raspberry and milk chocolate version are great!

Have you tried any of the microwave cakes? I'm sure there are recipes out there since I remember getting excited about them 35 years ago when I got my first microwave....cookies, too.

I googled the cakes and came up with this page:
