During the summer months, no-bake desserts are a favorite of ours!  Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge, Strawberry Cream Cheese Icebox Cake, Candy Bar Pie, and Snickers Bark are just some of the ones we love, and Dirt Dessert is on the list as well.  This is one of our go-to desserts to take to picnics and my son requests this as his birthday "cake" every year too.  This recipe isn't really sweet being that I don't add any extra sugar, and I like to incorporate sugar-free ingredients as much as I can.  It's simple to prepare and you can make it ahead of time too!
