In the summer, you need a good reason to turn on the oven so you don’t heat the kitchen that your air conditioning is working so hard to keep cool. That’s why we often turn to the outside grill or choose no-cook meals and desserts like banana pudding.

But even no-cook dishes require some prep and work in the kitchen, and if you’re not in the mood for that, Dolly Parton has you covered this summer, at least where desserts are concerned.

The country singer—whose coveted butterfly and guitar-themed Lodge cast iron skillet sells for $24.99 at Costco—first teamed up with Conagra with a Duncan Hines line of delicious baking mixes. Then she added a frozen line to her food brand with comforting, frozen, homestyle mac and cheese that feeds a crowd. Now, she’s dishing up two new frozen products to her line of foods with Conagra.

The mac and cheese goes from box to oven, but her two latest items go straight from box to belly. And they’re the perfect desserts for summer when you don’t want to heat your kitchen.

Dolly Parton’s Frozen No-Bake Desserts

Dolly’s latest culinary venture adds two new frozen desserts to her growing food brand: a chocolate pie and a cheesecake. They stay in your freezer until you’re ready to thaw in the fridge before serving. The boxes conveniently have directions to either thaw the entire dessert or cut it into slices while still frozen to thaw by the slice. That way, you can indulge in a slice or two and keep the rest in the freezer to wait patiently until the next time you crave a slice.

The Decadent Chocolate Pie is inspired by one of Dolly’s favorite pies, the Southern Chess Pie. Dolly’s version has a fudgy chocolate filling in a flaky pastry crust, sprinkling the whole thing with powdered sugar.

The Original Whipped Cheesecake has a fluffy whipped cream cheese and buttermilk filling in a graham cracker crust with just a bit of molasses.

You can’t miss Dolly’s frozen desserts in the grocery store. The packaging is the signature pink of Dolly’s other products, with an image of the Queen of Country featuring a big blonde wig and all her Dolly-ness. Grab your favorite sweet treat to keep in the freezer. The next time you need a dessert in this heat, grab your parka and head to the freezer aisle. You’ll thank Dolly for all her coolness.
