What crazy concoctions do you come up with when you want something sweet but have nothing in the house and don't feel like baking?

I need some ideas, here ladies! My old standby has been cocoa powder and powdered sugar in sourcream, but we only have yogurt.

Peanut butter and raw cacao powder and honey?

I need help NOW!!!

(This really does belongs in TAO because we are going to come up with some really crazy and gross things, here, and will probably admit to eating really weird concoctions!)

Cinnamon and sugar on buttered toast. Also works with tortilla fried in a pan.
Honey on toast is good.
Spoonful of peanut butter mixed with chocolate chips.
If I have enough ingredients, I make cookies (any kind).

eta- just read that you don't feel like baking. I just make the chocolate chip cookie dough and eat it.

Oatmeal (dry), brown sugar, and butter mixed together. I made this today for a crumb crust on banana bread, and had some left over . . . mmmmmmm, not for long though!

I have to admit I am completely intrigued by the whole cocoa powder/powdered sugar/sour cream thing.

The only dessert my mom made for me as a child was toast with lots of butter and brown sugar crusted on top.Not sprinkled, crusted so you can't really see the bread.The woman didn't like to bake!

I'll probably just go ahead with the egg anyway. My toddler nursling is trying to live by breastmilk alone lately...

THANKS sisters!!!

this totally beats brown sugar on a spoon.

just be sure not to get carried away with the cocoa powder. I wonder if maple syrup would be a good addition???

what i like about it is that it is thick and creamy.

and it is a little tart like cheesecake...

I can usually come up with the stuff to make sugar cookies. Chocolate milk and peanutbutter on a spoon will usual satisfy my craving for something with little effort. MMMM...I've been up so long I'm getting hungry again.

I am SO hungry!

I usually go for chocolate, but sometimes I spread butter on a flour tortilla, then sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon and roll it up. :

And something I discovered when going sugar-free a while back: unrefined coconut oil, unsweetened coconut flakes, stevia powder, and carob powder mixed together makes a quite decent fudge substitute.
It's good slightly refrigerated, as the coconut oil tends to melt quickly

equal amounts butter and sugar in a pot, then pour it out onto a cookie sheet - toffee.

Tonight I just ate dry cereal.

Peanut butter and marshmallows melted together is tasty.

When I was young I used to mix a sweetened instant coffee mix with Crisco. It sounds super gross to me now. I was an odd kid.

Didn't you ever eat peanut butter and roasted marshmallow "sandwiches" as a kid? One slice of bread (or toast), slap peanut butter on it, dot with mini marshmallows. Put in the oven on broil ***MUST WATCH*** until the marshmallows are toastedl

mMMMMMmmmmMMMmmm, good stuff.

You could cook up some apples with brown sugar and cinnamon. Either slice, coat, and bake in the oven. Or pan fry in butter.

In the oven, you can do a quick modified apple crisp, covering the sugared apples with oats mixed with melted butter and sugar.

Cinnamon toast is good.

Also (from my childhood):

~Take toast straight from toaster while it's still warm, cover with peanut butter, sprinkle on chocolate chips. Let melt. Yummy.

Or

~Take toast, cover with peanut butter and pour maple syrup over it. Eat with fork.

PB and choc chips melted.

Take CLub crackers and dip them in PB and sprinkle a few choc chips...SO good

Cookie dough, for some reason making it is easy I just hate baking cookies.

This is really good. Take two slices of french bread and lay chunks of a hershey bar in the middle. Take the two pieces together and dip in an egg mixture like you would french toast. Then sprinkle with powdered sugar. We call it chocolate french toast.
