The 8 Desserts You Need to Try in Downtown Fort Worth

Tacos with chocolate and caramel? Check. Chocolate roses? Check. Milkshakes only for those aged 21 and older? Check. And yes – they’re all good, and they’re all found in downtown Fort Worth. Here’s a list (in no particular order) for those of us who have second stomachs.

Dessert Tacos at Reata

The love of tacos is strong in Texas, so there might as well be a dessert version. Instead of meat and cheese, the Dessert Tacos at Reata have caramelized bananas and chocolate gravy filling.

Chocolate Budino at Taverna Pizzeria and Risotteria

This budino includes chocolate sauce and vanilla gelato. Gelato has more sugar than ice cream. Enough said.  

3-D Chocolate Roses at Schakolad Chocolate Factory

A flower bouquet eventually ends up dying, but this one will live on forever – well, in your stomach. You can get six beautiful chocolates on a “stem” stick, among other chocolate treats at Schakolad.

Granny Jakes Mellow Cake at Jakes Uptown

Honestly, there is nothing too “mellow” about this dessert. This chocolate cake is adorned with both pecan-fudge icing and marshmallow drizzle.

Banana Spring Roll a La Mode at Piranha Killer Sushi

Even spring rolls can be sweet. The Banana Spring Roll a La Mode at Piranha consists of a fried banana surrounded by ice cream.  

Bananas Foster Pie at Texas de Brazil

Bananas are the main ingredient in this dessert, too. This time, they’re melted into the white frosting and graham cracker crust of this pie.  

Peanut Butter Popsicles at Steel City Pops

Peanut butter isn’t something you would normally freeze, but the peanut butter popsicle at the Steel City Pops cart in Sundance Square is great for those on the go and is not as messy as the typical PB&J.  

The Adult Milkshake at Del Frisco’s Grille

Keep this milkshake away from the kids. While it has vanilla ice cream and creme de cacao, it also consists of both chocolate and nocello walnut liqueur. Not a bad way to unwind after a long week.
