Layered Tiramisu

This classic Italian dessert has a fun chocolate twist that is sweet and delectable but still light enough to not feel overwhelming. This layered dessert is made with milk chocolate custard, mascarpone mousse and chocolate ganache. Just in case you haven’t had enough chocolate with this dessert, we even top it off with some real cocoa crumbles.

We take a fun twist on classic chocolate cake, by adding butterscotch flavoring and Carmelia pearls to this chocolate ganache cake. It is the perfect chocolate lover’s dream for someone who needs a real sweet treat to top off their meal. It is also one of our most popular desserts for sharing.

Peanut Caramel Tart

Not all delicious desserts need to be made with chocolate. Just take our Peanut Caramel Tart for example. This delicious peanut dessert is made with smoked sea salt meringue, peanut brittle and kettle corn. As if that doesn’t have your mouth watering with salty goodness, we also pair this nutty dessert with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
