A deli where I grew up called Joan & Ed’s (recently closed) used to have a french silk pie that was HEAVEN. I have no idea what made it so divine, but I’ll always remember it.


Flourless chocolate cakes / chocolate lava cakes are my favorite. Served warm with a glass of milk!


Definitely spekuloos aka ground gingerbread cookies on a waffle from the Wafel Truck. It spreads like peanut butter! So good.


Mine is probably a chocolate rum mousse served in a huge waffle cone display that I had on my honeymoon in St. Lucia. YUM.


I made a Paula Deen flourless fudge chocolate cake a couple of times that is unbelievably rich. Thinking about it makes me drool.

Homemade dulce de leche poured on creamy vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and crushed peanuts at Italian-Argentinan restaurant, Sosa Borello on 8th ave between 50th & 51st, NYC


I always think back to a rich bananas foster I had at a restaurant as a child, served warm with vanilla ice cream.


Molten Chocolate Cake with salted caramel ice cream and caramel candy corn from Lure downtown. I seriously went back like four times during restaurant week…. soooooooo good!!


caramel apple cheesecake from @tweetiepiesnyc (an Astoria baker!!) so perfectly delicious.


probably the pumpkin cheesecake that a friend of mine made a couple of years ago for a post Thanksgiving bash. Or the hot chocolate at Claire’s confections in Port Jefferson, NY. Oh my god- like sex in a cup!!

My roommate and I found a recipe online we just had to make. They were called “turcupens” – the dessert equivalent of turducken. Take a hershey’s hug and wrap raw cookie dough around it. Freeze the cookie dough balls. Make devils food cake, cake mix – make into cupcakes. Drop a cookie dough ball (with Hershey’s hug inside) in the center of the cupcakes before baking. Once done and cooled – frost with homemade chocolate ganache. In one bite, you can actually feel your arteries clogging ….. worth it!


Pudding chomeur at Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal is pretty damned decadent.

Banofee pie – graham cracker crust, bananas and toffee. Incredible.

The most decadent desert I have ever tasted was a creme mint brownie! It sounds simple enough but the cake was fudgy and moist. It had a think layer of white cream mint! It was topped with a dark chocolate ganache!
The brownies were made by a sweet Russian woman who has since passed away. Although many people have tried to recreate her recipe. It has never tasted the same.



I’ve yet to make this, but my sister just told me about something called Crack Pie. It’s pecan pie without the pecan topping… and extra gooey filling :] Mmmm.. I look fwd to trying some brownie pops here, also! Great idea.


My sister in law makes a white chocolate mousse cake w/ raspberry sauce. It is divine!


I had a rasberry topped chocolate cheesecake with macadamia nut ice cream at Bern’s Steakhouse in Tampa once that was the most ridiculous thing I have ever eaten.

Ana PS

The most decadent dessert I’ve ever eaten was a Flourless Chocolate Cake in Niagara Falls on my honeymoon. It was so rich and delicious…nothing has ever compared to it.


Red Velvet & White Chocolate Cheesecake…so smooth and rich each bite is a separate trip to heaven. Definitely meant to savor!


I had a raspberry cheesecake in Montreal once, and it’s become the definition of transcendent dessert for my partner and I.
