7 Copycat Desserts You Can Make at Home
Stuck at home, but craving your favorite dessert that you'd normally grab at the drive-thru or grocery? We've rounded up our favorite copycat dessert recipes so that you can satisfy that sweet tooth from the comfort of your own kitchen. From Bojangles' Bo-Berry Biscuits to Milano Cookies, these recipes are a great way to enjoy all your favorite treats anytime.
Keto Copycat Wendy’s Frosty
Craving a Frosty? We can help with that. This may not quite be the real thing, but it is an excellent, keto-approved ice cream that's super simple to make. Stevia is readily available, but any keto sweetener will do as long as it's the same amount.
Copycat Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists
Our take on Taco Bell’s Cinnamon Twists taste just like the real thing, minus the drive-thru experience. They’re super light and crunchy, and the cinnamon-sugar mixture provides the perfect balance of sweetness and spice.
Copycat Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies
Is this recipe an exact replica of Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies? No. These are better. Rather than thin cakes, we went for oatmeal cookies that pack an almost peanut-butter-like flavor without any nuts. The crème filling completely nails what we love about the prepackaged pies, but takes things further with an almost airy, marshmallow-based consistency. If that doesn’t convince you, preparing these at home is just as quick (if not faster) than a grocery run.
Copycat Bo-Berry Biscuits
Enjoy the Bojangles favorite whenever the craving strikes with our easy-to-follow copycat Bo-Berry Biscuit recipe. These indulgent blueberry biscuits feature freeze dried blueberries rather than fresh because the freeze dried berries provide a perfect pop of blueberry flavor without bursting and adding excess juices to your dough. (You can find freeze dried berries at grocery stores like Whole Foods and online.) To make your Bo-Berry biscuits ahead of time, simply prepare the dough, cut into circles, and freeze the unbaked biscuits for up to one month.
Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones
Skip the drive-thru line and enjoy your favorite seasonal Starbucks baked good right in the comfort of your own kitchen. These copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones are the perfect companion to a hot cup of coffee and a brisk fall morning.
Copycat Milano Cookies
For a cookie that’s sure to impress, look no further than our homemade take on the classic Milano cookie. These copycat cookies are crisp around the edges and slightly softer in the center than the store-bought variety, but we found them to be the perfect dunker for a cup of hot coffee or cold milk. Pro-tip: Use a microplane to shave the edges of the baked cookies (if needed) to shape or resize for perfect sandwiching. For other favorite filling flavors, be sure to try our takes on Mint Chocolate and Dulce De Leche Milano Cookies.
Containing a fraction of the sugar found in store-bought chocolate-hazelnut spreads, our DIY take on Nutella strikes a divine balance of intensely rich, purely chocolatey, and not overly sweet. In fact, our test kitchen staff preferred this homemade Nutella over the real deal.
