Across the country, millions of students are moving into their college dorms for the first time. They’re figuring out how to arrange their furniture, picking their side of the room and, most importantly, figuring out where to put their refrigerator, microwave, and snacks.
The first few weeks in a dorm are great. You have all of the snacks that your parents bought for you and the all-you-can-eat, buffet-style dining halls have enough food to fill you up for the rest of the day. However, after about a month or so, some students miss the luxury of being able to make their own food. When you get a craving for something sweet while you’re trying to study, the very last thing you want to do is walk all the way to your dining hall or late night snack shop. Plus, if your dorm has a kitchen, it’s sometimes too much of a pain to sign up for a timeslot to use it. That’s where these dorm room desserts come in.
