25 delicious dessert recipes to feed your sweet tooth

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, global cooking trends were showing an uptick in people cooking at home. Gallup and Cookpad’s latest report published Dec. 17, 2020, showed that through 2019, a growing number of people around the world were cooking at home rather than going out or eating pre-cooked meals.

In the U.S., the swelling popularity of at-home meal prep subscriptions from Blue Apron to Hello Fresh! and the growing prevalence of grocery delivery underscore a renewed interest in prepping meals at home. Then as COVID-19 spread, mandatory restaurant shutdowns and capacity limits drove a dramatic jump in home cooking—not to mention demand for recipes and sales of things like yeast and kitchen appliances.

Of course, nothing is quite so decadent as a perfectly constructed dessert. So to help sharpen your baking skills, Stacker compiled a list of dessert recipes from Allrecipes. What follows are 25 recipes sure to appeal to novice and experienced chef alike—keep reading to see if any of your favorite guilty pleasures made the list
