No matter who you're with or where you're watching Food Network Star from, you surely have on hand eats and drinks to last you through the episode, right? Here at Star Talk, we want to see what you're munching on. Every Wednesday, check back for recipes to get you ready for the episode ahead, and on Sunday nights, snap photos of your spread and share them with @FoodNetwork via  Twitter  and  Instagram  using #FoodNetworkStar.

This week is proving to be a doozy on the heat index, which means that after days of sticky humidity and all-around sweatiness, the last thing you'll want to do come Sunday night is turn on your oven to make dessert. But just because you won't be baking doesn't mean you can't enjoy deliciously sweet treats. For this weekend's all-new Star, cool off with a few no-bake desserts, like the indulgent-yet-refreshing recipes below.

Ready to eat in only 10 quick minutes, Food Network Magazine's Chocolate Cream Pie (pictured above) is an easy-to-make beauty featuring a store-bought chocolate-cookie crust and a filling of cream cheese and cocoa powder. Top the pie with fluffy whipped cream and chocolate shavings for an extra-special presentation of a stress-free dessert.

For a frozen option, look no further than Food Network Kitchens' Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich Cake (pictured right), which requires more assembly than any true preparation. Start by lining a pan with classic ice cream sandwiches, then add rows of strawberry ice cream and mint chip ice cream, alternating with more sandwiches. After the cake has set for a few hours, finish it with your favorite chocolate shell topping for a drool-worthy drip-down effect.
