With all the gooey brownies, heavenly cakes, and creamy ice cream out there in the world, it’s often hard to “skip dessert.” We are fond of sweets that come from all over the country: we love the monstrous chocolate chip cookie from NYC’s Levain Bakery, the pies from Four & Twenty Blackbirds in Brooklyn, and ice cream from Fosselman’s in Los Angeles.

There’s a great big world of fantastic desserts out there—if you’ve got a sweet tooth, just head on out to the nearest ice cream parlor, bakery, or donut shop and get yourself something decadent. You deserve it.
