Who is the Sweets Junkie?

My name is Ariana Dickson, I’m a twenty-something from New York, with a serious love for chocolate, cupcakes, cookies, and everything in between.  Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always had a serious sweet tooth.  With a grandmother constantly baking homemade cookies and her famous cheesecake to a grandfather who owned an old ice cream shoppe-I was constantly surrounded by the sweetest of sweets. Searching on the interest for new recipes,  making trips to the grocery store to buy ingredients to bake with my Mom, and exploring local bakeries to try new goods were some of my favorite things to do growing up.  In my opinion, I’m the ultimate sweets junkie.

Here are my top 15 favorite sweets and recipes, to date:

  1. Chocolate Chip Oreo (double) Stuffed Cookies
  2. Carvel Ice Cream Cake
  3. Nutella Gooey Butter Cake
  4. My grandmother’s famous cheesecake
  5. Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food Ice Cream
  6. Red Velvet anything!
  7. 7-layer S’mores bar
  8. Rainbow cookies (from New York)
  9. Starbuck’s Birthday Cake Pops
  10. Glazed Almond Tea Take from Ham’n Goodys in Knoxville 
  11. Black and White Cookies
  12. Serendipity’s Frozen Hot Chocolate
  13. Cold Stone’s Cake Batter Ice Cream
  14. Cheesecake Factory’s Chocolate Tuxedo Cheesecake
  15. Twix Bars Cookies

If you’ve yet to try anything from the list above, you’re seriously missing out.  Although, my grandma’s “famous” cheesecake isn’t really famous and may be a little bit difficult to find.   Regardless, get your sweet tooth out and get ready to try some of the sweetest stuff around, because hey…
