What Is the Best Dessert in Dallas?

We're working on a feature for later this year on the best desserts in Dallas, and thought there was no better way to do it than crowd-source our readers. We're looking for the best desserts from restaurants, bakeries, gas stations, whatever. So, have at it in the comments; we might choose to include it in the issue.

    Mexican Sugar Horchata Cinco Leches in my opinion deserves some recognition! Its pretty amazing!!

  • serialtrep

    The nookies from Torchy’s Tacos. They are deliciously deep-friend chocolate chip cookie dough balls, rolled in corn flakes with powdered sugar on top. They are amazing enough to make you recover from alcoholism and accomplish world peace right on the spot

  • Lizzie

    Bananas foster at Eddie V’s. Seriously.

  • Krystle

    The Smooth Operator from Emporium Pies. The French silk chocolate with pretzel crust is the perfect taste of sweet and salty. You have to try it soon, once they break out with the fall menu this gem will be gone until next summer.

    #1 Cinco Leches- Mesero
    #2 Apple Walnut Cobbler – Hillstone
    #3 Whiskey Cake – Whiskey Cake

    Cinco Leches is the best dessert by a landslide. If it doesn’t win, something is wrong with the system.

    I have a sweet tooth soooo big that it has to be filed down every couple of months. My new all time favorite is the Chocolate Oblivion Mousse Cake at Eatzi’s. My taste buds say it is pure bliss and who am I to argue with them.

  • Summer

    Caramel Salted Cupcakes from Small Cakes! And then just cake in general from Red Raspberry Bakery.

    Chocolate Oblivion at Eatzi’s is the best choclate dessert in Dallas. Chocolate cake disk base, chocolate mouse (light-not too dense), topped with toffee pieces, drizzled with caramel and chocolate. YUM!
