As much as we’d like to, we just can’t resist desserts. Let’s not fight the urge anymore, everyone deserves to treat themselves every once in a while. Here are the top 5 desserts in Miami. Warning: It’ll be difficult to say no or even find a reason to say no to these sinfully delightful creations.
1 Bombolini at Siena Tavern
Siena Taven is a vibrant and social locale with a menu by Top Chef season 5 fan favorite Fabio Viviani. People go to Siena Tavern just to order Viviani's, Bombolini. What makes these Italian filled doughnuts so irresistible? Pipets of whisky caramel, chocolate hazelnut, and raspberry chianti sauces to create a gooey center. These are decidedly upscale versions of your childhood favorites.

3 Deep-Fried Oreos at Prime 112
This dessert is pretty straightforward. It consists of Oreos dipped into pancake batter, turned, and fried until golden brown. The result is sinful and delicious a bit like the rest of Prime 112's menu. No wonder this is a favorite of Miami Heat players who burn 4,000 calories a day!

4 Chocolate Chip Cookies at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink
Hedy Goldsmith elevates the classic chocolate chip cookie by using bricks of high-quality dark chocolate and a pinch of sea-salt that makes these cookies the best in the city. Although we hear she is leaving the Genuine Hospitality Group, we're pretty sure her recipe will remain. Here's a local trick - Michael's other restaurant, Harry's Pizzeria sells them too without the wait for a table.

5 Chocolate Delight at Icebox Cafe
Icebox Cafe has an array of heavenly cakes and cookies. Oprah even called it once the "Best Cake in America." That may have been a few years ago, but the cake is still divine. The richest might be the Chocolate Delight. It has layers of dark chocolate, creamy cheesecake brownie and chocolate mousse filling, dark chocolate ganache.
