11 Tasty Microwave Desserts to Satisfy Your Late-Night Cravings

Have you seen Jaime’s Lazy Late Night Cooking Corner series from Pretty Prudent? It’s all easy to make treats that only take a few minutes in the microwave. She’s a genius mom who knows that once the kids go down all we want to do is veg on the couch with our DVR and a treat, but we are too tired to make a 30+ minute dessert. All we want is that rich brownie or cheese cake or lemon bar or cinnamon roll (yes, cinnamon roll!), or so many other treats after our long day. Jaime’s got you covered. Click through for all her great recipes while I go make some 4 minute potato chips.
