Last week I shared with you some of my favorite brunch dishes in Chicago and today I am rounding up some of my favorite desserts that are easy to pick up when you’re on the go. All of these desserts are huge portions and great for sharing. You can also view my lists of best ice cream and pie as well.
Cheesecake at Twisted Baker: Graham. Cracker. Crust.
Rice Krispy Treat Chocolate Chip Cookie at Summer House: The cookies are as big as your face.
Carrot Cake at Blue Door Farm Stand: The cream cheese frosting!
Rainbow Cake at Goddess and the Baker: The prettiest cake you’ll ever eat.
Of course there are the many cupcake shops like Sugar Bliss, Molly’s, and the adorable Sweet Mandy B’s. My personal favorite cupcakes are from Chicago Cupcake which started out as a food truck and just recently opened their first store front on Milwaukee Ave. Their cupcakes are more like cheesecake and all have a graham cracker bottom. My favorite is the Salted Caramel.
And obviously donuts don’t have to just be for breakfast. Find out where to get the best donuts here.
