Everyone agrees that fruity pies or molten chocolate cakes are sweet ways to end a meal. But put these desserts on ice and they’re even better.
Hot Fudge Milkshake: Swensons Drive In, $2.70
Milkshakes should be a smooth and creamy drink, but the best part of this slurpable dessert is the chunks of slightly hardened hot fudge you’ll discover as you make your way through. Various locations, swensonsdriveins.com
Vanilla Bean Apple Pie Bacon Milkshake: B Spot, $5
We may have dubbed this shake as drinkable bacon, but it goes way beyond that. The nostalgic mixture of flavors combined with minuscule bits of bacon reminds us of a Butterfinger Blizzard — it’s sweet, a little savory and super chewy. 28699 Chagrin Blvd., Woodmere, 216-292-5567, bspotburgers.com
It’s the solution to every sweet craving all in one scoop. Super creamy vanilla ice cream melts in your mouth, leading the way for chewy chunks of brownie and gooey swirls of caramel. Various locations, mitchellshomemade.com
Don’t tell grandma her banana pudding has been one upped by an ice cream so good even the banana-phobic will love it. Fruity ice cream is sweetened by marshmallow swirl and pulled together with chunks of what taste like fresh banana bread but are really vanilla wafers. 2362 Professor Ave., Cleveland, 216-781-0352, tremontscoops.com
