Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With An Ice Cream Dessert In Every State
For every reader with a sweet tooth — AKA basically everyone — this list is for you.
If you're like me, you can't decide which you love more: an ice cream cone or a dessert dish. But what happens when you put the two together? BAM. HEAVEN. These are some of America's best ice cream desserts that are sure to leave you speechless and drooling.
Alabama: Ice Cream Donut Sandwich from Island Ice Cream & Treats
Well, isn't this just a dream come true? Island Ice Cream & Treats is located in Gulf Shores, Alabama and has over 40 flavors of Hershey's ice cream. Ice cream + Doughnuts = Love. Doughnut miss trying this out.
Alaska: Caramel Turtle Fudge Ice Cream Pie from Bear Tooth Grill
Sign me up. Bear Tooth Grill in Anchorage doesn't have a dessert menu, it has a Sweet Tooth Dessert Menu. The restaurant totally understand sugar addiction. This Caramel Turtle Fudge Ice Cream Pie is the best on the menu and one of the best in Alaska.
Arizona: The Original Pizza Cookie from Oregano's
Also known as a "pizookie," this dish consists of "three scoops of ice cream and chocolate chips, over a giant warm chocolate chip cookie pie." Oregano's Pizza Bistro's Scottsdale staff lives by the motto, "Treat every meal like a big deal!" and this pizza cookie certainly proves that. They are not playin' around.
California: Blondie Sundae from Connie and Ted's
Connie and Ted's, located in West Hollywood, is a cute New England seafood kitchen that not only serves excellent seafood dishes, but the best ice cream dessert in CA. The Blondie Sundae is a "cute brown sugar bar with caramelized chocolate, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce." Blondes always have more fun.
Colorado: Ice Cream Bombe from High Point Creamery
Welp, this is definitely... bombe. What is an ice cream bombe you ask? High Point Creamery in Denver says, "an ice cream bombe is a molded ice cream dessert that has its origins in Victorian era France, ooh la la. We layer an ice cream, let it harden, then add another layer, let that harden, then top it off with another layer of our awesome ice cream." The beauty is you are not only limited to choosing one flavor and that's any girl's dream.
Connecticut: Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream in a Bubblecone from Milkcraft
Located in Fairfield, Milkcraft "freezes every scoop to order with food grade Liquid Nitrogen, which creates smaller ice crystals when freezing, and results in the smoothest possible ice cream." Its bubble cones are thicker waffle cones inspired by a snack from Southern China.
Delaware: Cow Pie Sundae from Woodside Creamery
This one-of-a-kind ice cream dessert can be drooled over in Newark, Delaware. It includes vanilla, hot fudge, brownies, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Not to mention the creamery has cute little picnic benches where you can sit and enjoy Cow Pie Sundaes outside so you and the cows can share.
Florida: Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding from YOLO
This restaurant in Fort Lauderdale is so very accurately named. Saying YOLO to this bread pudding is definitely the way to go. The combination of chocolate chips, caramel, pecans and cinnamon (with a side of ice cream) would be loved by even the most passionate bread pudding haterz. Live it up and put this ice cream dessert on your sweet tooth list.
Georgia: Cracked Pie with Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Dovetail
Located in Macon, GA this is a sweet and Southern must-try dish. If you're like me, you've never heard of cracked pie before. It is basically a yummy oatmeal cookie, but putting salted-caramel ice cream on top steps up the dessert's game up 100 percent. I personally think it is called cracked pie because it leaves cracks in your heart when you don't have a second slice. The #heartbreak is real.
Hawaii: Mochi Ice Cream from Bubbies
Bubbies has been in the business of ice cream for over 30 years and its mochi is what its famous for. If you have never tried mochi before, it is "a harmonious combination of creamy gourmet ice cream wrapped in a sweetened rice confection, all resulting in a delectable bite-sized, one and a quarter ounce ball of happiness."
Idaho: Gooeys from Dockside Restaurant
I couldn't settle on just one type of Gooey from Dockside Restaurant on Coeur d'Alene Lake because every single one is delish. Try the Anniversary Gooey which is cake batter ice cream, chunks of brownies and blondies, strawberry, hot fudge and huckleberry sauces, huckleberry white chocolate bark and chopped nuts with a jumbo chocolate dipped strawberry on top. Don't want that one? Don't worry, there are four other Gooeys to choose from — and they're all definitely Insta-worthy
