The Hot List: 6 Decadent Desserts

Oct 04, 2017 01:41PM ● Published by Style

Whether rich and chocolaty or light, fluffy and fruit-filled, we’re big believers that sweet endings are the happiest endings. Save the best for last by trying one (or all) of the desserts below. In no particular order…

 “The Cherry Hand Pies from Whole Foods Market are my nemesis. Seriously—whenever I step foot inside, there’s a magnetic attraction that takes me to them, and I have to buy them. They’re my secret vice.”

“I like to think of myself as a cake connoisseur, and the moist, sinfully delicious offerings at Nothing Bundt Cakes pass my palate’s test with flying colors every time. I’ll often bring one of the Tiered Bundt Cakes (photo seen above) to Thanksgiving, birthday or Christmas celebrations, and it always receives rave reviews. Favorite flavors include carrot, pecan praline and lemon, but you really can’t go wrong with any!”

Tiramisu should be light and flavorful—a dessert that you want to take small bites of and savor. Some close friends from New Jersey (where delizioso Italian food can be found on every corner) were recently visiting and tried Visconti’s tiramisu for the first time. They took bites at the same time and—as if choreographed—fell back in their seats and proclaimed, ‘This is the best I’ve ever had!’ Yes, it’s that good.”

“Nothing satisfies my sweet tooth better than filling up a bag of candy at Snooks Chocolate Factory. They have something for everyone: truffles, honeycomb, peanut brittle, gummies, salt water taffy…and the list goes on. It's literally like being a kid in a candy store!”

 “Trust me: The Chocolate Lava Cake from Land Ocean is worth saving room for. The warm and gooey chocolate ganache center, slightly melted vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce, and addition of crushed Heath bar is what sweet dreams are made of.”

 “The Hot S’more Brownie at 36 Handles puts my campfire creations to shame. It features a chocolate chip brownie, chocolate sauce, house-made marshmallow fluff that’s toasted, and is served warm with shards of graham cracker. Definitely a winner any time of year!”
