New York City is a dessert lovers dream. Here are some of the best desserts New York City has to offer.
There are so many places to find desserts in New York City, it can be overwhelming figuring out which ones to go to. Here are five of the best places to find a variety of desserts that are sure to leave taste buds satisfied.
Filled With Sweets
If you love Asian inspired desserts, Filler With Sweets is just for you. Inspired flavors include vanilla-taro and chocolate-five spice. While they don’t have a retail store, Filled With Sweets desserts can be found in various locations around the city.
If a cookie dough, Nutella peanut butter, or a creme brulee cupcake sound good to you, Molly’s Cupcakes is a must visit. You can also build your own cupcake, which they will make right in front of you. Their cupcakes are made fresh each day in small batches.
The Treats Truck
The Treats Truck is just what it sounds like – a food truck selling delicious treats. Even though they also serve regular food, they have an entire menu devoted to cookies, brownies, bars, pies, cakes, muffins, scones, donuts and sandwich cookies (Caramel Creme Sandwich Cookies, Pecan Butterscotch Bars, Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes or Kitchen Sink Crispy Squares anyone). The Treats Truck moves around but there are regular spots around New York City where you can always find it.
Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices
If you’ve never had an Italian ice before (sometimes also called water ice), run, don’t walk to Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices. In addition to the regular Italian ice flavors you can expect to find, they also have cream ices, no-sugar ices, ice cream, and twisters (ice cream and Italian ice).
