Today is National Dessert Day and we are ready to celebrate! We have so many options in Las Vegas for world class food and any cuisine imaginable. Why should dessert be any different?

In the last decade, Vegas has really stepped up her game in the kitchen. We’re known for our celebrity chef restaurants and our over-the-top menus. And that extravagance has found its way onto the dessert menu, big time. We don’t just do cookies now. We do cookies on crack. Want a donut? How about one topped with another donut and seven layers of frosting in between? A plain cinnamon roll? What even IS that?

We’re the entertainment capital of the world! That means nothing we do can be boring. And today we pay homage to our favorite meal of the day: dessert. In honor of that, here’s some sweet facts for you, according to inthekitchenwithmatt.com. About the top ten desserts in the United States:

10. Carrot Cake. Which is a bonus because it totally counts as a vegetable…right?
9. Milkshakes. Celebrating a milestone birthday this year with the invention of the blender in 1922.
8. S’mores. Because it’s a tasty dessert and a timeless dad joke.
7. Cheesecake. I mean you know you’re good when you have whole factory named after you.     
6. Ice Cream, you scream, we all scream for…you know.
5. Apple Pie. Because…America.
4. Fudge. A delicious treat and convenient way to avoid swearing
3. Brownies. We liked them so much we named our girl scouts after them.
2. Cupcakes. What’s not to love about cake, but cuter?
And the number one dessert in the United States? Good ol’ Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Well now that you’re TOTALLY distracted by your sugar craving (sorry, not sorry), here are some desserts in Vegas that you really must try today. Happy National Dessert Day!
