South Florida's Most Tempting Desserts of 2011

Categories: Sweet Tooth

Dessert at a restaurant in South Florida is not for the faint of heart. A drizzle of caramel, a pouf of cream, the sheen of fresh-cut fruits, or the siren of chocolate can undo even the most disciplined among us.

As a purist, I'm enamored with dark, single-origin chocolate, riveted long ago by Charlie and his chocolate bar from Willie Wonka (the first, most-suspenseful undressing I'd ever seen). A few other desserts were as tempting in 2011: a British shortbread with fresh, local mangoes and a dollop of whipped cream from Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House was one.  A simple seasonal pie from 1500 Degrees at Eden Roc was another.

What's your favorite sweet treat of the year? Peruse our sweet porn slideshow to jog your memory and fill us in in the comments. Once it hits January, some of us will transition to the monastic life of CrossFit flagellation paired with a tofu and kale chip diet.  We have a couple more weeks to go. Indulge while you can.
