No-Bake Sweets for Sunday’s Star

by in Community, July 17, 2013

Chocolate Cream PieNo 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.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich CakeFor 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.

What does your Sunday Star menu look like? Snap photos of what you're eating, and share them with us @FoodNetwork via Twitter and Instagram using #FoodNetworkStar.

    If we all munched our way through each FNS episode, especially on the foods pictured in these cheery blogs, we'd be obese. Each week you remind us we're supposed to make an EVENT out of FNS, and if folks want to do that, great. But the continuous focus on heavy foods (lasagna, cream pie) is a bit much.

    I realize this is your job, Maria, but there are only so many ways you can write this weekly reminder and you've exhausted them.

      Speak for yourself. I intend to grab a pint of Guinness ice cream from the freezer and eat the whole thing very slowly using a tiny spoon.

    Stacy is so fake that I can barely stand watching her on tv. I would never watch FN if she won!
