Pie Junkie is rightfully one of the best dessert destinations in Oklahoma City. Even if you don’t like regular pie it has crème-filled whoopie pies (which are more like cookies than pie). One of Pie Junkie’s signature pies is the Drunken Turtle, which has a graham cracker crust, fudgy filling and salted caramel topping. The French Silk and S’more pies are also great chocolate options.

There are a lot of people that have the ability to forgo Flip’s tasty selection of pizzas, pasta and other Italian favorites and go straight for the dessert menu. We can’t blame them, either. Why deny yourself what you really want? The gooey chocolate pudding is topped with fresh whipped cream that will warm you up with comfort decadence.

Dark chocolate macarons have helped put Belle Kitchen on the proverbial map, along with its collection signature doughnuts and savory items. Using high-quality Belgian chocolate, the macarons remain one of the top-selling items. It allows the ganache to rest for 24 hours to ensure that characteristic macaron “chew.”

If it is possible to save room after a meal of high-quality barbecue, Iron Star offers a pair of desserts that will satisfy chocoholics. The double chocolate bread pudding is finished with a Grand Marnier glaze to make you feel fancy, and the giant chocolate cake lives up to its name, as it is big enough for two to eat.
