The Pig’s Ear serves quite a few delicious desserts, but the Bread Pudding reigns supreme. The Crème Anglaise, brandy caramel sauce and custard is the perfect combination and the perfect consistency.

Cupcakes at Twentyfive Main

Truly the best cupcakes I have ever tried, the cake is perfectly moist and dense, while the frosting is always delicious and applied in just the right ratio. The many flavor choices and combinations mean you can go back again and again to try something new!

Fondue at Anasazi Steakhouse

Anasazi serves a full assortment of fruits and desserts to dip into their warm chocolate fondue, which is melted right at your table. There are several types of chocolate to choose from too. I highly recommend the Toblerone.

Chocolate Cake at Xetava Gardens Café

Nothing quite compares to the decadence of an amazing chocolate cake. Xetava has hit a home run with their triple chocolate cake that comes with homemade whipped cream, fresh strawberries and a chocolate drizzle that’s just right.

Toffee Cake at Aragosta Restaurant

An amazing blend of salty caramel and sweet chocolate make this an incredible dessert. It melts in your mouth and will make you want to go back to Aragosta just for dessert.

Pie at Croshaw’s Gourmet Pies

This family-owned business serves up some of the best pie in Southern Utah. My personal favorite is the Lemon Cream Cheese. Little known fact: not only are their fruit pies incredible, but their chicken pot pie is one of the best kept secrets!

Cheesecake at Cheesecake Culture

Whether you want a big dessert or something smaller, Cheesecake Culture has something for you. And each of their desserts is fantastic! As different as this may sound, I highly recommend trying the coconut cheesecake!

Asphalt Pie at WINGERS Restaurant

Imagine all your favorite desserts in one and that’s an Asphalt Pie. Oreo cookies, mint chip ice cream, chocolate, caramel, whipped cream …  it’s like a little slice of heaven!

Pastries at Farmstead

Choosing a favorite pastry from Farmstead would be as difficult as choosing a favorite child … it just can’t be done! Try anything, or try everything! You really can’t go wrong! The donuts are great, the flaky croissants are wonderful, and the Kouign Amann is a must-have!

Churro Sundae at Green Iguana Mexican Restaurant

How do you make a yummy ice cream sundae even better? Stick a pair of churros in it, of course! Also topped with chocolate, caramel, whipped cream and a cherry, this is a dessert you won’t forget!

Cream Cheese Apple Crisp at Stage Coach Grille

Also known as the Kolob Bar, this delicious dessert takes the classic apple crisp to the next level. It starts with a coconut granola crust and is then topped with cream cheese, apple pie filling, and a strudel. Are you drooling yet?
