Confessions of a Nashville Sweet Tooth
The sun is peeking through the clouds and the days of laying by the pool and pontooning on Percy Priest Lake are on the horizon. Sure, we should be hitting the gym or going to Hot Box to get swimsuit ready, but we’ll indulge in some of Nashville’s most delectable desserts instead. Here’s the top 10 desserts to try this spring. After all, isn’t the saying “a dessert a day keeps the doctor away”?
1. Kayne Prime’s Coconut Passion Bar: This dessert literally transports us to paradise. From the first bite, our taste buds awaken. The sweet coconut combined with the passion mousse feels as light as air in our mouths.
2. Bricktop’s Cookie Skillet: Just looking at this picture leaves us speechless. The cookie is so warm and gooey, and when we dip our spoon in to get a bite, chocolate oozes out. Every time we order this, the whole cookie skillet is gone within minutes!
4. Tavern’s S’mores: This dessert is so much fun! It’s interactive and amazingly delicious. The s’mores comes with a personal size flame to roast marshmallows. Choose from graham crackers, chocolate, strawberries, or even peanut butter cups to create a personalized s’mores sandwich.
5. Las Paletas’ Rose Petal Popsicle: We love Las Paletas' unique flavored popsicles, whether it be avocado, tamarind with chili, hibiscus, or our favorite, rose petal. A creamy, sweet flavor, the rose petal popsicle melts in our mouths. Sitting on the porch of the Las Paletas shop, looking at Sevier Park, and enjoying a rose petal popsicle is the perfect recipe for a warm Nashville day.
So many sweets, so little time!
