Too hot for real cake

Your favorite icebox cakes / put everything in a baking dish and let it sit in the refrigerator and get really delicious-type cakes? Let me have them so I don't have to turn my oven on this summer.

The other day during the oppressive DC heat, I made my boyfriend one of those icebox layer cake type of desserts - this one
to be exact. When he came home from band practice, he put some in a bowl and in between mouthfuls, praised me (and this dessert) to the high heavens.
I'd like to make him (ok, let's be real, me too) some more things like this. So what are your favorite "put all these things in this dish and let it sit" type of dessert recipes?
Snowflake preferences: I don't want to turn my oven on - it's too hot. I'm not opposed to microwaving things. Bonus if it doesn't use a lot of bowls (no dishwasher). My boyfriend hates coconut, not huge into peaches. I'm not a huge fan of Jell-O or dried fruit. I'm an excellent baker/cook so I don't mind making things from scratch as long as it doesn't involve an oven (i.e. no homemade meringues, but I'm happy to buy meringue cookies from Trader Joe's). No dietary restrictions. I have access to a wide variety of cooking/baking ingredients.
