As 2016 comes to an end, I am taking time to reflect on an amazing year filled with even more amazing sweets. It’s safe to say this was my sweetest year yet! I’ve made my way through kitchens all over Miami and gained wonderful new friends along the way. Here are my top five favorite desserts of 2016 – in no particular order because having to pick only five was hard enough!
Nutella Brownie – Pubbelly Sushi (Dough Bar 305 available during Sunday Brunch)
The peeps at Pubbelly have had a huge year, from making their way to the mainland at The Langford downtown and soon (very soon) to Brickell City Centre and then even to out sea on the Norwegian Escape, but it’s great to see that their original spots in Sunset Harbour are still kicking butt. Especially when it comes to pastry chef Maria’s brunch desserts. The Nutella Brownie lit up my life in 2016 and might even be my favorite use of Nutella all year, which says a lot considering the quantities of Nutella I find myself eating regularly. I’m so thankful to know it will never find its way off the menu, because people would be expected to riot – not me, don’t worry 😉 but I know they are out there.
