During a certain period in Food52 history, a secret stash of these blondies lived in the bottom drawer of the freezer for urgent, 3 PM snacks. And that Thin Mints, too, are better right from the freezer made us think: What else can we push to the back of the freezer and surprise ourselves with whenever we want?
For desserts that you can eat straight from the freezer—by choice, not because they'll melt otherwise—go for options that are crispy-crunchy or fudgy-gooey. That means shortbreads, brownies, and a lot of melted chocolate. Think beyond the frozen banana.
