As Seen On Delish.

Two years later and over 20 restaurants down, I’ve found the best desserts at the most popular chain restaurants. These are worth saving space for—some are so good, I recommend skipping the entrée altogether.
This towering dessert is a mix of a flaky croissant and doughy donut. The salty caramel and hot fudge dip send it over the edge.
If you’re obsessed with a salty-sweet dessert, this one is for you. The toffee chunks and the warm buttery cookie go perfectly with the salted caramel drizzled ice cream.
Of course Olive Garden would have a dessert lasagna. The eight-layered brownie tower has thick cream cheese to break up the chocolatey-sweetness of the brownie. P.S. We have a copycat recipe of this one because y’all love it that much.
Looking for a crispy dessert? P.F. Chang’s has just the thing for you. Bananas are sliced, rolled in spring rolls, fried, and then drizzled with a caramel-vanilla concoction. My favorite part is dipping the rolls in the coconut-pineapple ice cream.
Look, we could’ve put the molten chocolate cake in here for Chili’s, but I think we all know about it, and to be honest…it’s overrated. Switch it up and get the paradise pie next time. It’s full of butter, coconut, walnuts, and chocolate. This baby’s got layers.
I’ve never dreamed about a dessert more than this moist, soft, fudge cake. If I could have this for my birthday every single year I’d be content.
Not a chocolate fan? I hear you. The tart and sweet key lime pie at Bonefish Grill is light enough for you to eat the entire slice yourself. The graham cracker crust is addictive.
Out of all of the cheesecakes at the Cheesecake Factory, I’ve got my eyes set on this peanut butter dream. It’s dense, chocolatey, and the peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth. You’ll need a glass of milk with this one.
Remember how I fell in love with Cracker Barrel’s chocolate cake just a few seconds ago? Well, meet the denser, sexier version. The Great Wall of Chocolate is sensual. I highly recommend you buy this to-go and eat it alone in your bed.
Sogno di Cioccolata, Carrabba’s
In English, this means “chocolate dream” and honestly, Carrabba’s nailed it. It is the perfect balance between dense and light; the brownie is thick while the chocolate mousse layers are fluffy. This picture should go next to the word “decadence” in the dictionary.
