Fried Pies

Ree Drummond's grab-and-go fried pies are great for guests to enjoy dessert while watching the game. Use canned apple and cherry pie filling to cut down on prep time, and in just five minutes your pies will be fried to golden-brown perfection.

Glazed Brownies

A semisweet-chocolate-and-heavy-cream glaze turns traditional brownies into a downright decadent treat.

Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies

With the perfect combination of moist on the inside, crunchy and crackly on the outside, these cookies are sure crowd-pleasers. The chocolatey dough is also packed with both semisweet and white chocolate chips.

Butterscotch Peanut Butter Bars

This is the perfect salty and sweet combination for game day. Trisha Yearwood tops the baked bars with an easy glaze made from just three ingredients: peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and milk.

Chocolate Cupcakes and Peanut Butter Icing

One of Ina Garten's favorite chocolate desserts is a classic chocolate cupcake with a wow factor: peanut butter icing and chopped peanuts. For a nice rounded cupcake top and equal-size treats, use an ice cream scooper to place the batter in muffin cups.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs

These chocolate globs are inspired by a restaurant dessert that Ina loves. The mounds of cookies are stuffed with chocolate chips, pecans and walnuts. Because there's very little flour in the recipe, the result is an intensely chocolatey and fudgy bite.

Sangria Ice Pops

Bobby Flay features the sophisticated flavors of sangria in an ice pop. Combine reduced red wine with fruit and fruit juices, then let the mixture steep overnight in the fridge before pouring into ice pop molds.

Sarah's PB&J Chocolate Bars
