Food: Easy sweets

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

A variety of desserts and sweet treats from candies and cookies to bake and bars can be made using just three ingredients.

It sounds restrictive, or a recipe for baking failures, but myriad candies, cookies, cakes and crumbles can turn just a triad of pantry staples into sweet successes, write Katie Doherty and Joe Riddle.

Nut spreads such as peanut butter or Nutella can set up into decadent baked morsels, with the help of eggs and flour or sugar. In other recipes, sweetened condensed milk serves as a binder and a sugar, turning coconut flakes into macaroons or a box of crackers and some chocolate-covered toffee into a salty-sweet treat. Cake mixes fulfill roles beyond their original destinies when combined with pie fillings or fruit curd and butter.

For the recipes, read Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Food section.
