SIMPLE DESSERTS USING JUST A FEW INGREDIENTS
Sometimes you just need a little something sweet but don’t want to go to a lot of trouble. Our best suggestion is to stock your freezer with TOFUTTI PREMIUM® non-dairy frozen dessert and treats like TOFUTTI CUTIES®, non-dairy “ice cream sandwiches” that look and taste like traditional ice cream sandwiches but are half the size, making them ideal for those watching their calorie intake. The cute little sandwiches come in flavours like Vanilla, Cookie ‘N’ Cream, Chocolate, Mint Chocolate Chip and Wildberry with chocolate wafers or TOTALLY VANILLA TOFUTTI CUTIE® TOFUTTI CUTIES®, our bestselling ice cream-style product. They are popular with kids and adults as a dairy-free, cholesterol-free treat. Also try our other TOFUTTI NOVELTIES like our 95-calorie TOTALLY FUDGE Premium Pops or our sugar-free HORRAY! Bars. Here are a few other dessert ideas to whip up in a hurry using minimal ingredients but with optimal taste.
