Faith Durand from The Kitchn shares a recipe from her new book, Bakeless Sweets, with Food52 -- because during summer, dessert shouldn't require an oven.

I'm one of those people who likes her chocolate with stuff in it. Roasted almonds in dark chocolate? Yes. Theo's chocolate bar with toasted buttery breadcrumbs? Double yes. The purists will groan, but I appreciate the richness of chocolate tempered with something nutty or crispy. This no-bake take on brownies hits that craving straight-on, with a firm, fudgy texture and the toasted taste of graham crumbs, not to mention hazelnuts.

The best part is that you can put them together in just a few minutes. Simply mix together graham cracker crumbs, hazelnuts, and cocoa, add melted chocolate, and refrigerate your brownies for at least an hour. Waiting for the brownies to chill is by far the hardest part of this recipe, but the fudgy treats flecked with cookie crumbs and roasted nuts make your patience worthwhile.
