Thanksgiving-Worthy Make-Ahead Desserts

There's so much to love about Thanksgiving but it can also be one of the more stressful holidays for cooks. Aside from having guests to host and tables to set in a festive way, there is usually some pretty intensive cooking that demands your attention on the big day. "Thankfully," a spectacular dessert doesn't have to eat up your time that day.

Treats that actually need time to set are perfect for this holiday - mousses and desserts with gelatin are perfect options. You can prepare them the day before and forget about them until they need to come out of the fridge. Frozen desserts can be made even further in advance and as a bonus, they free up space in your fridge - and who couldn't use more of that when preparing a feast!

Work any of these desserts into your Thanksgiving menu to make it stress-free and delicious too.
