Question about current contest No-Bake Desserts

Just to clarify, it is only NO-oven or also No-stove? Some submitted recipes include stove cooking, which it makes sense since you bake in the oven, not the stove.

Hi LouLou,

We're looking for desserts you can make without the oven—and, if necessary, only little stovetop heat! (Lots of granitas, for example, call for a simple syrup to be made. That's great by us—but something that requires lots of simmering on the stove, wouldn't be a good fit for this contest.) Thank you for checking! Looking forward to seeing your entries.

It's no-oven, not no-stove.

At least two-thirds (maybe closer to three-quarters) of the submissions are sorbets, ice creams, or something with chocolate, meaning people are turning on the stove to make simple syrup, make a custard, or melt chocolate.
