Just Because It’s Monday: Desserts We Are Craving

It’s a brand new week, everyone! We’re all for conquering this new week, but if you’re still pining for the weekend, we’ve got the ultimate pick-me-up for you.

Just because it’s Monday, we have a few desserts we are craving. We’re sure you’ll be too! Check it out, after the cut:

Chocolate Cake with Caramel Buttercream and Crunch Caramel Popcorn 

We are so obsessed with the incredible Linda of Call Me Cupcake, with her gorgeous sweet creations and insane photography skills. Her chocolate cake isn’t any ordinary cake! The crunchy caramel popcorn is absolutely irresistible, and the caramel buttercream is also something else. We promise you, it’s worth making! Full recipe here. 

Salted Pistachio Religieuse 

Forget jetting off to Paris, we’ve got one of the best right here in the city! There’s nothing Chef Dominique Ansel creates that we don’t love, and this French classic pastry is no exception. Just think of lovely white chocolate-pistachio ganache piped into a choux ball, on top a delectable pistachio moussline in the bottom ball. It’s a heavenly piece of pastry, so save all of this goodness for yourself!

We save the best for last! Look no further than our buds at La Bella Torte, who make serious classic Italian desserts, at an affordable price too. We especially love his cannoli, with a generous amount of sweet ricotta filling. La Bella Torte tops their gorgeous cannoli with chocolate chips! How is this not the way to beat Monday blues?
