I scamper away at any sound,

I'm the thing next to your desktop, waiting to be found.

Change one letter and you are in me,

Add one letter, take a spoonful,

Yum! What a beauty.

The answer is

mouse.

I scamper away at any sound,

That's what mice do.

I'm the thing next to your desktop, waiting to be found.

That's the mouse of the computer.

Change one letter and you are in me,

We are all in houses!
Or "Youse" is an actual word, and "you" are in it.

Add one letter, take a spoonful,

Mousse is a type of dessert.

Yum! What a beauty.

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, really close. Mouse is the correct word though, but think about the change one letter and you are in me bit. And no, you don't need to delete s. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Quick Clarification: In the line you are wrong in, 'you' as in the person you, and me as in the new word :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Stevo Is the word in that line rot13(lbhfr)? It is an actual word (merriam-webster link), and has "you" in it. $\endgroup$
