Lent is finally over.
Well if you’re going to indulge, you may as well get stuck into some of the best treats Dublin has to offer, right?
‘Stressed’ backwards is ‘desserts’ you know…
1. Snickers Pie — Accents, Stephen Street Lower
Heat this up to get the full effect. Oh, and it’s gluten free.
You are welcome.
2. Tortino — I Monelli, Portobello Road
Served with drops of dark chocolate on ganache cream. Buon appetito!
3. Rocky Road Sundae — The Paddocks, Clonee
And yes, it’s even better than it looks.
4. Coco Pops French Toast — San Lorenzos, South Great George’s Street
Technically it’s on the brunch menu… But who says you can’t eat dessert first thing in the morning?
5. Kinder / Nutella cake — Sweet Republic, Bachelors Walk
6. Matcha chocolate mousse — Musashi (Capel Street/IFSC/Hogan Place/Sandyford)
Light enough to tuck into after a meal, tasty enough to order two.
7. Crispy fried bao — Chameleon, Temple Bar
Made with Jameson whiskey butterscotch and served with vanilla ice-cream.
8. Baileys bombas — Las Tapas De Lola, Wexford Street
Melt. In. The. Mouth.
9. Falooda — Pickle, Camden Street
Despite being one of the better words on this list, this creamy Indian dish is nothing like you’ve ever tasted.
10. Chocolate, caramelia and citrus sphere — Fade Street Social, Fade Street
As good at 3D shapes get.
Melted hot chocolate and mandarin sauce opens to make way to caramelised chocolate ice cream centred with lemon purée and broken chocolate crumble.
11. Churros smores — Bow Lane, Aungier Street
Yep, these exist. Served with melted marshmallows.
12. Cannolis — Dolce Sicily, Dawson St/Temple Bar
These come in two flavours – fluffy ricotta or rich chocolate.
13. And finally, Doughnut sticks — Taste at Rustic by Dylan McGrath, South George’s Street
This delicious dessert comes cooked in coconut oil with black salt, sake ice cream and a salted miso dipping sauce.
A must-try for salty treat aficionados.
