A favorite when visiting Buddy Valastro’s Carlo’s Bakery is the lobster tails. The bakery, located in the Venetian, has been making this traditional cream-filled Italian pastry since it opened its first location in New Jersey more than 100 years ago. In addition to the lobster tails, Carlo’s Bakery gets rave reviews on the cannoli, of course. The bakery also has ready-to-eat Italian desserts, cake slices, cookies, cupcakes and more.
Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned ice cream sundae? Carmine’s Titanic Sundae is a big deal when it comes to sundaes. This ice cream treat includes six large scoops of ice cream resting on a chocolate torte and topped with fruit, hot fudge, whipped cream and chocolate wafer straws. It’s the perfect treat for sharing with the entire table. Or, you don’t have to share it at all – we won’t judge. Located at the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace.
Hash House A Go Go
One entire Snickers bar is used to create your chocolatey bread pudding that comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with caramel, chocolate sauce and powdered sugar. There’s no dessert not worth the calories at Hash House A Go Go, but this one is tops on the list of favorites.
Location: Hash House A Go Go has locations at the Rio, the Linq, the Plaza and on West Sahara Drive.
Sugar Factory American Brasserie
The name alone suggests the desserts will be good, but if you really want to treat yourself (and quite a few of your friends), order the King Kong. This giant sundae is a creation of 24 scoops of ice cream topped with hot fudge, caramel, strawberry sauce, bananas, toasted marshmallows, Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chip cookies, crushed waffle cone, gummy bears, white chocolate strawberry shavings, toasted lollipops and finished off with whipped cream and giant lollipops.
