1. Melktart Brulee
Peli Peli - LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch
A traditional South African dessert, but with inviting, familiar flavors that feel like home. A flaky graham cracker crust encases a warm, vanilla custard filling with just a hint of cinnamon. Topped with fresh berries and fluffy whipped cream.
2. Whiskey Cake
Whiskey Cake Cafe
Any restaurant named after it's dessert has a lot to live up to, and the warm slice of Texas heaven made famous here does not disappoint. A sweet toffee torte serves as the base and is drenched in bourbon anglaise, sprinkled with spiced pecans, and topped with whipped cream.
BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse
More fun than saying the word "pizookie" is deciding which flavor you want to order it in - because they've got a lot. Stick to the traditional chocolate chip, or try a Monkey Bread (pictured), Ghirardelli Chocolate, S'mores, or White Chocolate Macadamia bake served hot in a skillet with three scoops of yummy vanilla ice cream melting over the top. Grab a spoon and dig in!
4. Chocolate Pinata
Uncle Julio's Mexican Restaurant
Gather some of your closest friends and break into a chocolate shell chock-full of sweet stuff. This popular menu item is filled with fresh berries and mini churros on a large platter dotted with little hills of whipped topping for dipping in. Fun!
5. Chocolate Chip Cookies
You can never go wrong with warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies and a glass of ice cold milk, and Tiff's Treats is legendary for serving up the most deliciously rich cookies in Katy.
6. Big Texas Muddy Bottom Pecan Pie
A rich, dark twist on a traditional Texas favorite. Crunchy, giant pecans inside a delicious and crispy crust but with syrup custard and rich chunks of Ghirardelli chocolate on the bottom.
7. Bunny Boo Carrot Cake Cupcake
Ooh La La Dessert Boutique
Drive thru cupcakes? Yes please! They have a wide variety of cupcakes, cakes, pastries, coffees, and more to choose from, but one all-time favorite is the Bunny Boo. Not-too-sweet carrot cake topped with yummy cream cheese frosting and orange sprinkles. It's like a little slice of Spring all year round.
8. Apple Pie Cheesecake
Anthonie's Market Grill
Rich, creamy cheesecake infused with tangy apple, served in a graham cracker pecan crust, and drizzled with salted bourbon caramel glaze.
9. Turtle Brownies
Nestle Toll House Cafe
A little bit crunchy, a little bit chewy, and 100% delicious, grab a square of chocolate goodness while you're out and about shopping or running errands in LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch.
Churro Mania - Katy Mills Mall, Entry 5
A traditional Latin delicacy made available to the masses, and what a blessing! Slightly crispy morsels of fried dough, rolled in brown sugar, cinnamon, and either filled or topped with creamy flavors like caramel, dipped in melted chocolate, or eaten as is with a hot cup of coffee.
