The 9 Las Vegas dessert spots you should visit. Strange article title considering that you don’t typically go to the Sin City to get cookies and M&M’s. Las Vegas is known for noisy casinos, fancy hotels and, over the top restaurants. Tourists stroll leisurely the Strip with long daquiri souvenir cups, holding yellow shopping bags and they don’t seem to care for cake. But who would say “no” to a refreshing strawberry ice cream when is 100 degrees? This article will feature the best dessert spots on Las Vegas Strip. It excludes desserts of the fancy resort restaurants as they are served after copious meals and not as a small, on-the-go treat. Yes, Las Vegas indeed has amazing, one-of-a-kind sweets from birthday cookies and ube cheesecake to chocolate-dipped strawberries that are worth trying because you will not find them in your neck of the woods. And if you have more than one, we won’t tell. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. So you are free to indulge while strolling down the Strip one macaron at the time…
Here are the 9 Las Vegas dessert spots you should visit
🍫Hershey’s Chocolate World
Step in the Hershey’s Chocolate World flagship store of the West Coast and leave all problems and noise behind. This store has everything Hershey’s you could possibly imagine from the signature Kisses to Reese’s to Cadbury Creme Eggs, T-shirts, mugs, and branded toys. But there is a surprise: You can actually savor bakery treats made on-site! You can start from the cookie section with the Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter being a personal favorite, try the KitKat or the Peanut Butter Cheesecake, then move to the S’Mores Bar for a sugary sandwich and finish with a cup of joe. With more than 800+ products offered, you won’t leave empty handed. Get several boxes of Creme Eggs and Reese’s for yourself and for your loved ones and don’t forget to take a ridiculous photo eating your cookie of choice.
❓Where: 3790 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Hershey’s Chocolate World is one of the three flagship stores currently located in the USA: one is located at the company’s headquarters in Hershey, PA and the other in Times Square in New York City.
🍭🍬M&M’s World Store
Once you open the door to the M&M’s World Store, you will be awed by this 28,000 square foot, four-level building. Reportedly, the largest candy wall of the world, this store offers a playful experience and leaves you wondering: what M&M’s should I put in my bag? There is no ending to your choices. You can create your very own one-of-a-kind M&M’S with the personal printer, combining customized messages, a variety of images, and 16 different colors of M&M’S candies. You could also peek at newly launched items not yet in the mainstream stores and make your own, customized M&M’s mug. Buy an M&M’s t-shirt to impress your friends and don’t forget to bring gifts back home. Favorite flavor of M&M’s? Anything with peanut butter!
❓Where: Showcase Mall, 3785 South Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
The Las Vegas M&M’s store is one of the 4 in the country. The other 3 are located in: Time Squares, New York City, the Mall of America in Minnesota, and Disney Springs in Florida’s Disney World.
🍪Honolulu Cookie Company
Honolulu Cookie Company is located at the Linq Promenade and is the brand’s only store in continental USA -the other stores are all in Hawaii and one in Guam. This airy and beautiful sweet spot is known for its premium shortbread cookies in a pineapple shape found in a variety of flavors. From Butter Macadamia, to Pineapple, Guava and Mango to White Chocolate Coconut, you will taste the flavors of Hawaii in a bite. Ask to try before you buy and say aloha with a bang. Personal favorite? The classic Butter Macadamia while Mango takes the second prize.
❓Where: 3545 S Las Vegas Blvd L21, Las Vegas, NV 89109
🍦Sweet Sin By Claude Escamilla
The Sweet Sin is another favorite at the Linq Promenade on the Las Vegas Strip. This sweet gem was created by the famous Executive Pastry Chef Claude Escamilla, two times World Pastry Champion and is the only store in US soil. Specialties are the unlimited range of Macarons that come in multiple colors making your life much brighter. You can try pretty much everything you have imagined: Macream-Cakes, Donuts, Crepes, Danish Dots, Pastries, Gelato & Gelato Waffles and favorite beverages from Milkshakes to Caffe Frappe. Before I forget, there is also a Soda Fountain. Just open the door and enter! Even the entrance mat is colorful. I vote for Macarons but others will go for the gelato.
❓Where: 3545 S Las Vegas Blvd #3, Las Vegas, NV 89109
🍫Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop
If you are craving a good iced Mocha, you can’t miss the Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop located in the Linq Promenade on the Strip. If you haven’t experienced the Ghirardelli shop, this is your chance, and you should do it before the day kicks in. Grab your iced coffee or iced Mocha (my favorite), and a few signature Ghirardelli chocolates and you are good to go. There are of course chocolate chip cookies, rich brownies, and chocolate-dipped strawberries together with ice cream sundaes topped with handmade hot fudge. You have no excuse.
❓Where: 3545 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV 89109
🍪The Lightful Cookie Dough
Somewhere between the Linq and Harrah’s Hotels, this retro pink pastry track is a delight to see between the crowds. It does not open very early so you go later during the day for a chance to get your Cookie Dough made in Las Vegas. They only serve Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough in a cup with or without soft serve ice cream. Nothing excessive but a cute experience to share.
❓Where: 3475 S Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89109
🍰🍪The Milk Bar
Christina’s Tosi Milk Bar is hidden on the second floor of the Cosmopolitan hotel. If you haven’t tried her signature cookies and cake creations, now it’s your chance. Try the Chocolate Chip Pretzel Potato Chip Cookies (previously known as Compost which is my favorite), the Birthday Cake Truffle or the famous Cereal Milk Soft Serve. Other favorites are the Red Velvet Cheesecake or a piece of the Milk Bar Pie. Paired with an Affogato coffee, it’s just pleasure.
❓Where: at the Cosmopolitan, 3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, Eastside Tower, Level 2, Las Vegas, NV 89109
The Milk Bar in Las Vegas is one of the very few stores in the USA. You can find the Milk Bar in various locations in New York City, DC, Boston, and Los Angeles.
Located at the Famous Foods Street Eats at Resorts World, the Sweet Eats is a dessert bar with a wide range of offerings: from Dipped Apples (Rainbow Sprinkles or Toasted Coconut?) to Shave Ice, to sweet treats like Cotton Candy and Tropical Popcorn. The choice is overwhelming, and you will have to make fast a decision on what you will get. I went for the Yuzu White Chocolate Cheesecake, a choice that I don’t regret (seen in photo). Velvety, creamy with the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness was nearly perfect. I finished the visit with my first time experience at Tiger Sugar Boba. Yes, their Boba is very sweet but that’s why you are here.
❓Where: 3000 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89109
Bellagio Patisserie is for the sophisticated pastry hunter. If you like freshly baked croissants, crepes and chocolates, a stop here is a must. The shop has always a line, but the wait is worth it. If you go for breakfast, you also have the option for savory treats. You can’t go wrong with a breakfast sandwich croissant. There are of course delectable French-type desserts like the Lemon Tart or the Raspberry Macaron. Grab an iced latte and then find a quiet seat at the tables in front. We learned that the pastry chef is French so we all in good hands.
❓Where: Bellagio Hotel & Casino, 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
