Lizzie's Old-Fashioned Cocoa Cake with Caramel Icing

Trisha Yearwood dresses up her family's traditional chocolate cake recipe with a thin layer of rich caramel icing. Her tip for perfect results: Make sure to pour the same amount of batter into each pan so the layers cook at the same rate.

Warm Chocolate Cakes with Berries

Giada de Laurentiis' decadent chocolate cakes are gooey on the inside with a delicate crust on the outside. Before serving, sprinkle each cake with a teaspoon of Frangelico — they'll absorb the rich hazelnut flavor.

Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ree loves adding malted milk powder to her chocolate chip cookies for the rich, almost toasty flavor it imparts. "These cookies like to spread," Ree warns, so be sure not to overcrowd the baking sheet when spooning out the dough.
