Crazy Chocolate Shakes

When concocting a milkshake of this magnitude, layering becomes key. Ree starts with swirls of ganache inside the glass, plus along the rim, so candies can stick to the chocolate. After that, she opts for a base of chocolate ice cream, then she piles on the toppings, including caramel bars for over-the-top dessert decadence.

Chocolate Butterscotch Caramel Bars

A brown sugar-oat mixture forms the crust of these layered bars, which get their gooey center from a blanket of creamy dulce de leche. Follow Ree's lead and opt for canned dulce de leche to keep the prep work easy.

Crispy Chocolate Dippers

Once you have the chocolate pool ready to go (Ree likes a combination of melting wafers and chocolate-hazelnut spread), it's up to you to dunk the dippers — plain breadsticks, pretzels and butter crackers work well — and dress them up with toppings like chopped nuts and sprinkles.

Triple Chocolate Tiramisu

For a no-bake dessert that yields impressive results every time, look no further than this party-ready tiramisu. The espresso-soaked ladyfinger cookies will slowly soften as they absorb the indulgent combination of white chocolate-mascarpone, sweetened egg yolks and whipped cream.

Chocolate Pudding

On the bottom of these cool, silky treats is a buttery crust made with crushed chocolate sandwich cookies.

Mint Chocolate Truffles

Much like chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and caramel, chocolate and mint is a go-to flavor combo that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Here, Ree makes a minty chocolate ganache and rolls it into two-bite truffles. For added decadence, she finishes the balls with a dunk in gooey milk chocolate.

Ladd's Chocolate Pie

Follow Ree's lead and start with a store-bought pie shell to save time when prepping this bittersweet-chocolate pie. It's up to you how you enjoy this dessert: Are you like Ladd, who prefers a simple and unadorned slice, or do you want yours finished with extra-indulgent fixings, including whipped cream and chocolate sauce?

Chocolate Message Cookies

Not just for Valentine's Day, these cinnamon-scented cookies can be cut into whichever shape you like and stenciled to spell any phrase. "Happy birthday," anyone?

Black and White Brownies

Knock-You-Naked Brownies

With a 5-star rating and more than 200 fan reviews, Ree's over-the-top brownies are a tried-and-true favorite for a reason. These showstoppers boast an ooey-gooey center of caramel and chocolate chips, and base and top layers of rich chocolate cake. Bonus: The cake layers are made with a boxed cake mix, so prep is a cinch.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Much like spaghetti and meatballs, chocolate and peanut butter are simply better together, and Ree's indulgent pie celebrates that mash-up best. She starts with a buttery crust of chocolate sandwich cookies, then fills it with a creamy mixture of peanut butter and whipped topping.

Brownie Cookies

Made with both baking chocolate and cocoa powder, these fuss-free cookies are packed with the rich flavor you crave from traditional brownies.
