We love a homemade dessert … just not the sink full of dishes afterward. Enter one-bowl baking! Decadent, delicious and fun, these one-bowl dessert recipes are a piece of cake.

Make cleanup a breeze with our one-bowl baking recipes.

When you want dessert right now, you don’t want to dirty lots of dishes. These easy recipes need just one bowl for the batter — as opposed to separate bowls for the wet and dry ingredients — so they cut down on the prep and the mess. They’re a simple way to whip up some chocolatey goodness for you or a friend. Here are some of our favorite one-bowl dessert recipes.

1. One-Bowl Cocoa Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

One-Bowl Cocoa Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

If it’s cake you want, it’s cake you’ll get! HERSHEY'S Cocoa provides the rich chocolate flavor to this from-scratch cake, while REESE’S Creamy Peanut Butter becomes the dreamy frosting in the middle. Top with chopped peanuts and mini baking chips and leave the sides unfrosted for a trendy naked cake.


2. One-Bowl Brownie Recipe

Enjoy a classic dessert made simple. Matt Robinson from Real Food by Dad shared his recipe for one-bowl brownies using HERSHEY’S Cocoa and MINI KISSES Chocolate Chips. His ideal brownie is on the fudgier side — but you can bake the brownies for longer to make them cakier if you like.


3. One-Bowl Syrup Cake

One-Bowl Syrup Cake

The secret to getting this cake so chocolatey is the HERSHEY’S Syrup. The result is an airy, made-from-scratch chocolate cake with a light, just perfect flavor. Add some ready-made chocolate frosting for an extra layer of goodness. Then drizzle on some more syrup because why not!
