Treat Yourself During National Dessert Month in Vegas

Last updated: October 17, 2016 at 10:34 am. Posted by in Las Vegas Hotels, Las Vegas Restaurants, Things to Do in Las Vegas. Comments Off on Treat Yourself During National Dessert Month in Vegas.

October is the sweetest month of the year. It’s National Dessert Month and you’d better believe we’ll be celebrating for 31 days straight. Sure, we might end up in a sugar coma, but it’ll totally be worth it.

Las Vegas is all about indulgence and there are lots of places where you can satisfy your sweet tooth with everything from pastries to ice cream to cake. Go ahead and treat yourself.

Here’s where you’ll find some of the best Las Vegas restaurants for desserts:

Best Las Vegas Restaurant for Desserts - Serendipity 3

Serendipity 3 at Caesars Palace

Serendipity 3 is famous for its Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, which blends 20 kinds of chocolate into one delicious icy concoction. You can make it even more decadent by adding toppings like sprinkles, nuts and peanut butter cups.

We also love Serendipity’s Drugstore Sundaes, which come in flavors like deep-fried Snickers, deep-fried Oreos or your more traditional banana split.

If you want some cake to go with that ice cream they have that too. Our favorite is the Party Like It’s Your Birthday Cake with layers of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream in confetti cake. No birthday required to enjoy.

Payard's desserts: Italian restaurant Las Vegas

Payard Patisserie & Bistro at Caesars Palace

The French know how to do pastries — especially acclaimed French pastry chef and chocolatier François Payard. You can sample his heavenly creations at his restaurant and shop at Caesars Palace.

Sink your sweet tooth into éclairs, opéra cake, Napoleons and tarts. You’ll want to hit up the adjacent chocolate shop for candies, macarons and truffles.

There’s also a big chocolate clock in the center of the shop. Keep your ears open for the bell – it means the clock is about to dispense free chocolate truffles. Time it right and you’ll score.

Las Vegas Italian Restaurant - GIADA

GIADA at The Cromwell

Celeb chef Giada De Laurentiis serves up Italian favorites at her restaurant, GIADA at The Cromwell. Lucky for us, her favorites include desserts.

Save room after your meal and wait for the beautiful rose gold dessert cart to roll up to your table. The cart displays treats like chocolate tiramisu, Giada’s famous lemon ricotta cookies and assorted gelato. The desserts are served fresh off the cart so you don’t even have to wait.

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ Hotel & Casino

If you’ve seen Guy Fieri’s TV shows, you know he likes things that are a little over the top. His restaurant is where you go if you have a really big appetite…or a group who wants to share a dessert.

If you dare, try Guy’s Cheesecake Challenge – a half marble cheesecake topped with potato chips, pretzels and hot fudge.

Other dessert choices include triple-double mint pie, seven layer Jack Daniels chocolate cake and s’mores Monte Cristo, which features chocolate and marshmallow between fried brioche.

Las Vegas buffet desserts at Caesars Palace

Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace

Choices can be difficult – especially when it comes to dessert. That’s why we love the Bacchanal Buffet. You don’t have to pick just one – you can sample as many as you like. We’re talking around 80 options like made-to-order dessert crêpes, mochi, chocolate lava cakes, ice cream sandwiches, cookies, cake pops, crème brûlée, mini soufflés and much, much more. If all of that sugar sounds like a bit much, don’t worry – they have sugar-free options too.

Hexx Ice Cream Sandwiches on the Las Vegas Strip

HEXX Kitchen + Bar at Paris Las Vegas

Not only is there a dessert month, there’s National Dessert Day on Oct. 14. HEXX will raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation by offering build-your-own ice cream sandwiches for $6.95. Choose a housemade cookie like chocolate chip, s’mores, white chocolate macadamia nut, snickerdoodle, red velvet, sugar and peanut butter. Then pick your ice cream flavor from Madagascar Chocolate, bourbon brown sugar, salted caramel, Tahitian vanilla, stracciatella, sweet cream or cheesecake brownie. This isn’t your average ice cream either – it’s High Road Ice Cream, created by James Beard Award winner Keith Schroeder.

If you don’t want ice cream, HEXX offers plenty of other sweet treats like cakes, milkshakes and more. Oh, and did we mention they also make their own chocolate on site?

Las Vegas Restaurant Amorino Ice Cream Cones

Amorino at The LINQ Promenade

We love ice cream but there’s just something special about rich, creamy gelato and Amorino gets it right. This European gelato shop serves its frozen treats in a unique flower-shaped cone. The gelato looks almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

You can choose from flavors like passion fruit, dulce de leche, lime-basil, Speculos, stracciatella, tiramisu and more. Bonus: You can mix it up and choose as many flavors as you like in each order.

Amorino also offers other treats like crepes, waffles and gelato-filled macarons.

Sprinkles Cupcakes at The LINQ Promenade

Sprinkles is cupcake heaven. The flavors change by the day but some of the varieties you might find include cinnamon sugar, peanut butter chocolate, red velvet, black & white and salty caramel.

Got a late-night cupcake craving and the store is closed? No problem. Sprinkles has a cupcake ATM. Swipe your credit card and the ATM will dispense a fresh cupcake for you.

Sprinkles also serves tasty cookies and ice cream. Want the best of both worlds? Try a Spinkles Sundae, which is a scoop of ice cream between a cupcake top and bottom.

old-homestead-cookie

Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace

Old Homestead Steakhouse serves lots of delicious desserts like their famous New York-style cheesecake, doughnut bread pudding or the Big Fat Chocolate Cake with layers of ganache, but it’s the cast iron baked chocolate chip cookie that we love.

The warm chocolate chip cookie is topped with house-made vanilla bean ice cream, coconut and caramel sauces. It’s the perfect way to end your meal.
