The last thing you want to do in the heat of summer is turn on your oven. Even if you think you can handle the heat -- that baking your special pan of brownies is more than worth it -- you'll soon regret your foolish decision. No matter how much you love your sweets, no dessert is worth that kind of suffering. Especially when there are so many no-bake dessert recipes to choose from.

So put your baking books away for the next three months, and forget all about your oven. We've got you covered with no-bake cookies, cheesecakes, pies and more. Here are 36 no-bake desserts that are about to make your summer cool, comfortable and seriously delicious.
