If you love brownies, caramel, and peanut butter, this is the recipe for you. It's so easy to make and incredibly decadent and luscious.

2. Nut Goody Bars

If you like Nut Goodies, that layered chocolate and peanut candy, you will swoon for this recipe. It uses a lot of ingredients, and the pan weighs about 9 pounds, but at least once in your life you MUST make this recipe.

3. Rocky Road Fudge Candy

I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Who doesn't? Combine those and add lots of ingredients like mini marshmallows, pecans, and even more chocolate chips to make a fabulous candy everyone will love.

4. Chocolate Peanut Butter Bonbons

This old-fashioned recipe combines peanut butter, dates, and chocolate. Now that may sound strange, but the combination is delicious and irresistible. I like to make the peanut butter mixture one day, then form the balls and dip them in chocolate the next. These are perfect snuggled into those little frilled candy cups for Valentine's Day.

5. Best Truffles

Wow - this truffle recipe, which I had lost and wanted for years, was finally returned to me when my sister got the recipe from my Aunt Carol Sue. The chocolate ganache (melted chocolate with cream) is chilled, then whipped before the little balls are formed, making these truffles absolutely melt in your mouth.

6. Chocolate Crunch Brownies

I've seen people bite into these brownies and swoon. They are incredible. A rich and velvety brownie is topped with chocolate frosting, then a chocolate crunch layer made with cereal and peanut butter. Wow.

7. Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark

Bark is simply chocolate, melted with some other goodies added, then allowed to set until firm. Break or cut it into pieces so it looks like the bark of a tree. Kind of.

8. Updated Chocolate Nut Toffee

If you have a lot of time (and patience), Chocolate Nut Toffee is fabulous. But if you live in the real world, this recipe, which starts with graham crackers, ends up as fabulous crunchy toffee with tons of chocolate.

9. Easiest Fudge in the World

Yes, this is the easiest fudge in the world. You can fancy it up with chopped nuts, chopped candy, or marshmallows if you'd like. The variations are infinite - make three or four batches!

10. Chocolate Filled Angel Food Cake

An angel food cake, some pudding mix, whipping cream, and a few other ingredients are all you need to make this spectacular dessert. You don't need to bake a thing or cook anything; just whip a few ingredients together and assemble the cake. Yum.
