Your family will love these easy-to-prepare, delicious desserts

Fabulous desserts can be easy to prepare if you have the right ingredients on hand.

Start with a ready-made graham cracker crumb crust. Then stir up a filling with sweetened, condensed milk for a smooth, luscious texture. Add a variety of fresh or canned fruits — or maybe peanut butter and chocolate — for both color and flavor. Fast and fabulous recipes like these assemble in minutes.

Then bake. Or chill. Or freeze. Crown your dessert with a cloud of whipped topping, fresh fruit or shaved chocolate. Then sit back and enjoy the compliments.
