Living in dorm rooms can suck for multiple reasons: barely any space, a shitty roommate, and loud-ass neighbors when you’re just tryna catch some z’s. If you’re into cooking, the worst of all is that some dorm rooms don’t even allow you to have a toaster oven.
Surprisingly enough, there are still some dope desserts you can make in your dorm room without much of a heat source at all. The only thing you really need is your mini fridge and a little imagination.
