Churros de Madrid

Churro Affogatto

Instagram-worthy: A twist on the classic churro, this churro comes with two scoops of housemade vanilla gelato, topped with the guest’s choice of cold brew coffee or a fresh shot of espresso. Enjoy the churro affogatto on the scenic terrace of Lickety Split or strike a pose with it in front of the custom coffee-theme chalkboard art mural.

Avocado Gelato Ice Cream Taco

  • On the menu at: Lickety Split
  • Price: USD 9

Instagram-worthy: This dessert taco is made for the avocado lover. Housemade avocado gelato made from fresh avocado puree tastes like a smooth, frozen avocado, and combined with a fresh waffle cone shell dipped in Swiss dark chocolate and rainbow sprinkles, it’s a real treat for one’s taste buds. Topped with dark chocolate sauce and white chocolate shavings, the combination of sweet and savoury flavours makes for a delicious dessert taco experience. This gives a whole new meaning to #TacoTuesday.

Chocolate Cupcake

  • On the menu at: Lickety Split
  • Price: USD 6

Instagram-worthy:  This ultra-decadent cupcake is made with creamy Cacao Barry Extra Brute 100 percent cocoa powder and is topped with fudge icing, and filled with a marshmallow cream filling. A white swirl on top of the mouthwatering treat is also made of marshmallow cream.  

Cotton Candy Gelato

  • On the menu at: Lickety Split
  • Price: USD 8.50 for three scoops

Instagram-worthy: With the exact flavour of spun cotton candy, in the form of gelato, the bright pink cotton candy gelato is made with cotton candy, and comes topped with actual cotton candy puffs and sprinkles on top.  Strike a pose in front of the gelato case, as all the brightly-coloured flavours provide a backdrop of eye-candy.

Soft Baked Pretzel

  • On the menu at: PB&G
  • Price: USD 12

Instagram-worthy: These treats are not found rotating on a warming rack, but are instead fresh-baked and served with a delicious cheese sauce (not the neon orange variety). Three soft, butter-brushed housemade pretzels are accompanied with a rich cheese sauce made from a brown ale beer and a decadent cream cheese, in addition to a maple mustard glaze made of pure maple syrup, whole grain mustard and Worcestershire sauce. The perfect dessert for the savoury treat lover.

S’Mores

  • On the menu at: PB&G
  • Price: USD 36

Instagram-worthy: s’mores, the camp fire classic, is brought tableside at PB&G. While sitting at one of the restaurant’s picnic tables by the lake, delight in the presentation of a large butcher block complete with various chocolates, from classic Hershey’s to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and more, marshmallows and graham crackers, all displayed around a charming mini barrel-shaped Sterno burner. This dessert is perfect for groups to have fun roasting their own s’mores and enjoying not exactly a fireside - but a lakeside - chat together.

PB&J Milkshake- Adult Version

  • On the menu at: PB&G
  • Price: USD 14   

Instagram worthy:  Not as easy to find at theme parks as the cotton candy and pretzels (but it can be found), is the PB&J sandwich. Forget the bread and enjoy the peanut butter and jelly flavours in a liquid form, with PB&G’s own PB&J smoothie.  For those 21 and older, this dessert drink is made with peanut butter, jelly, and a dash of vodka, and is topped with Reese’s Pieces. It tastes exactly like the lunchbox staple - with a kick.
