No meal is complete without dessert! Here are my top picks for desserts in CLT!

Fruity Pebbles Paleta

Paletas Morelia

Location: 1425 Winnifred St. Charlotte, NC

Miami-based paleteria opened its doors in Charlotte last summer, they’re known for their hand-crafted, gourmet ice cream pops with over 16 flavors and countless topping combinations!

My fav combo: Banana paleta with Nutella filling, dipped in hazelnut chocolate and topped with Fruity Pebbles.

Chocolate Mousse Cake from Kid Cashew

Location: 1608 East Blvd. Charlotte, NC

Any chocolate and strawberry combination is usually a winner in my book, and this chocolate mousse cake did not disappoint! Decadent, and moist with the best chocolate frosting!

Mochi Ice Cream from Nikko Restaurant

Location: 325 Arlington Ave. Charlotte, NC

Yes, it is what you think it is! Checked this place out for my sister’s birthday and they surprised our table with this unique dessert!

This Japanese mango ice cream was delicious!

Empanadas from Cafe El Buen Gusto

Location: 410 Westinghouse Blvd. Charlotte, NC

Each Hispanic country has its version of empanadas, the Salvadorin version happens to be a dessert! Sugar-coated sweet plantain outer shell with a sweet, creamy filling in the middle.

Pair it with their hot chocolate for an authentic Salvi experience!

Flan from A Piece of Havana

Location: 11126 S Tryon St. Charlotte, NC

Flan is my ultimate fave, so I always try it if I see it on the menu. I was blown away by the flan served at POH! You know you have found good flan when the top caramel coat feels like you’re shattering through glass when you cut into it. There was definitely a taste of Havana in every bite of that thing. The portion is pretty huge too so great for sharing!
