Favorite Dessert?

So what is everyone's favorite dessert if all time? Basically if you had one last dessert to eat before you died what would it be? haha

My Favorite is Vanilla Cheesecake!

So many desserts, so little time. Robert, now you've gone and asked an impossible question.

I don't know what mine would be since there are so many I love. A few years ago I would've definitely said it would have to include some form of chocolate. However, there are many other yummy desserts that aren't chocolate. You've given me something to think about. I'll make that my weekend assignment.

Homemade vanilla bean ice cream.
or warm chocolate pudding. It's a tie for first place.

A banana split from Brenden's Drive-Inn, Route 5, Batavia, NY. They serve them in a bucket, like you'd get from KFC!

Oooooh there are so many things I love. I agree with Katie, this is an impossible question! But to narrow it down, I like bananas foster, this strawberry glazed cheesecake I make, tiramisu, and oh just about any kind of pie. Yum! I realize these things are terrible to keep putting into my body, but there are worse ways to die.

So...
the chocolate guy named Robert loves vanilla cheesecake. That is a surprize!

My absolute fave is my chocolate kahlua mousse. I do appreciate a dense, rich flourless chocolate cake.

Okay, now, my two favorite desserts to MAKE are, stolen from Sweet Inspirations in San Francisco: A chocolate cookie crust, filled with a dark chocolate mousse, with the entire top covered with the biggest blackberries you can find,

and this, of which I make several every strawberry season:



That is a Firenza Chocolate Ectasy Cake Mix, prepared in a tiara pan, filled with fresh sliced strawberries, and topped with real whipped cream.
