Minnesota has some of the best restaurants I’ve ever tried. They know how to do savory and they know how to do it well, just check out my Minnesota Food Bucket List…but if you’re like me, you might be craving something sweet. Check out a few of my favorite desserts in Minnesota! Enjoy!
Chianti Grill has delicious wine but they also have the most decadent cheesecake! Whether you are a strawberry kind of person or a chocolate and caramel kind of person (like me), you need to stop by! The cheesecake is so rich and flavorful that even though I was super full, I kept eating!
If you’ve been following for a while you’ll see that sometimes I like to be adventurous with my food and Minnesota was no exception. While having a blast at Can Can Wonderland (see full post here!), I skimmed their menu and saw Cheddar Cheese Ice Cream. I stopped in my tracks and literally thought to myself ‘that can’t taste that great’ but I was wrong, so so wrong. The description below this menu item says ‘try it, you’ll love it’ so I had to. And wow, it was an interesting combination but I loved it and couldn’t stop eating it. I would definitely buy it again!
Have you ever had a dessert so small and tasty that you just kept eating and eating? Let me introduce you to mini donuts (and vanilla and chocolate frosting swirls) from Betty Dangers! The donuts are so warm, flaky and easy to eat.
While having an absolute blast at Valleyfair, my friend told me that I had to try Rita’s Italian Ice. I had never tried it but had heard really good things, and I was craving something sweet. He ordered for me and didn’t tell me the flavor, I just thought it was fruit punch but I was wrong. He had ordered me a Swedish Fish Gelati that literally tasted like Swedish Fish. It was amazing. Do yourself a favor and find a Rita’s near you now.
I loved loved loved Izzy’s Ice Cream because every purchase comes with a free ‘Izzy scoop’ which is that tiny sample scoop on top! It was nice to enjoy an ice cream treat without having to worry about it melting all over my hand within the first 2 minutes (#arizonaproblems) 😉 If this Dessa’s Existential Crisis (whiskey, amaretto, pecans and cashews) and chocolate/peanut butter Izzy scoop looks delicious.
Let me know if you agree with this list and if there are other places I should try and include next time. You can check out other restaurants by visiting the Food Bucket List here! If you need more dessert inspiration, check out my post on the amazing eats at the Minnesota State Fair!
