One of the coolest if not visually-appealing desserts in the area is Arlington’s Restaurant506’s Chocolate Destruction. Vanilla ice cream and mixed berries join together inside of a thin chocolate sphere. Then, the chef pours hot fresh caramel over the sphere to create complete and delicious destruction—the Chocolate Destruction!
2. LUMI SNOW
Based on the Taiwanese concept of “shaved snow,” Lumi Snow brings this unique, delicious and outrageous dessert to North Texas. With a variety of endless combinations from creating your own to inspiration from the help of their menu, anyone and everyone is sure to find a “snow” that they love at Lumi!
3. WHISK CREPES
Not only is Whisk one of my favorite spots to dine at but they also offer some seriously delicious sweet crepes that are not to be missed! One that particularly stands out is the cookies & cream crepe, made with cookie cream, fresh strawberries, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and crushed cookies. Trust me, you’ll want to lick the plate clean it is so darn good!
3. THE KEEPER
Now open at The Shops at Legacy across from Mexican Sugar is The Keeper, a modern seafood restaurant that focuses on freshness and sustainability. It’s important to end a fantastic dinner on a high note, and The Keeper’s Bubble Waffle Sundae does not disappoint. Made with Sweethouse ice cream, marshmallow fluff, butter rum sauce and caramelized pineapple, it is as delicious as it is Instagram worthy!
Located in east Dallas, just down the road from the Dallas Arboretum is Hypnotic Emporium, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor that serves up tons of delicious treats and a wide array of vintage candies. However, it’s their Cloud Cone that is too outrageous not to include on my list. It’s a traditional ice cream cone stuffed full of Denton’s Beth Marie’s ice cream— wrapped in your choice of cotton candy that is made on the spot. Yum!
Head on over to Deep Ellum’s Stirr Restaurant and you’ll be greeted with outrageous desserts! My personal favorite? Stirr’s Tower of S’mores! With graham cracker crunch, chocolate ganache, pretzel cream, graham cracker ice cream, a giant chocolate brownie, toasty marshmallow meringue and a pretzel and cocoa nib crumble, you’ll be drooling all over yourself with this one!
