Affogato or Gelato at Chocolate Museum and Cafe

This next stop could dessert to be on our list of best desserts twice! The Chocolate Museum and Cafe on International Drive is a sweets lover's paradise. You can indulge in sipping chocolate, including Dulce de Leche, petite cakes, a variety of chocolates, and gelatos.

The affogato is one of our favorites because it can be ordered with any of their gelatos. Fresh espresso is poured over a scoop of cold gelato in any flavor available. If the chocolate with peanut butter gelato is available during your visit, it's a rich combo.

House-made Coconut-Pineapple Bread Pudding at Sebastian's Bistro

Impress your date by showing off some Disney insider knowledge. Sebastian's Bistro is located at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. You do not need to be a guest of this resort to indulge in a scrumptious Caribbean dinner here at Sebastian's Bistro.

The meal here is all-you-care-to-enjoy family style with three courses. The final course is beloved by Disney World experts, like our Disney-loving editor. Warm House-made Coconut-Pineapple Bread Pudding is served with sweet vanilla ice cream and silky caramel sauce. It is sinful and delicious.

Afterward, take a stroll around this sprawling island-themed resort. Or hop aboard the Disney Skyliner for a magical trip in the sky. Since this is an underappreciated restaurant it's fairly easy to get a dining reservation.

Planet Hollywood Observatory: Cosmic Cotton Candy Milkshake

Planet Hollywood Observatory is a fun spot at Disney Springs. The atmosphere is reason enough to visit (who doesn’t love it when the entire restaurant spontaneously and simultaneously breaks into song?!) but the desserts are the icing on the cake.

The Cosmic Cotton Candy milkshake is an out-of-this-world concoction adorned with candy, cotton candy, and a lollipop. Try one of the out-of-this-world Star Jars or marvel at the Planet Meltdown as a chocolate sphere is melted tableside by hot chocolate sauce to expose a double chocolate fudge cake.

Chocolate Desserts in Orlando

The Supernova at Aurora

Paying tribute to UCF's connection to the space program, the Celeste Hotel practically on UCF grounds is a surprising taste of the luxurious life, while still being approachable. Aurora at The Celeste is a hidden gem of a restaurant. Any meal here is sure to impress your date, but make sure you save room for the Supernova.

This signature chocolate dessert is Instagram worthy, but you have to see it in motion. The Supernova is a chocolate dome surrounding vanilla ice cream, a brownie, and topped with candied walnuts, smashed raspberry, and hot rum flamed caramel sauce poured on top. Check out this Reel to see it in action.

Norwegian Hot Chocolate at AJ Chocolate House

It's doesn't need to be cold out for you to enjoy the delectable Norwegian Hot Chocolate at this Park Avenue dessert cafe. AJ Chocolate House is a charming spot at the south end of Park Avenue with a case full of chocolates, cakes, desserts, and ice cream.

Anything chocolate will hit the spot, but our favorite is the Norwegian Hot Chocolate because it is layers of dark chocolate, white chocolate, and milk chocolate in a tall glass topped with whipped cream. It's almost like sipping on fondue.

Cookies and Cream Crepe Cake at Light on the Sugar

Anyone who has ever taken a bite of a cream puff or crepe cake from Light on the Sugar has fallen in love immediately. For delicious chocolate without feeling like you're overindulging a Cookies-and-Cream Cream Puff will do the trick.

If you see Cookies and Cream Crepe Cake in the display case order it immediately. The creamy, sweet chocolate goodness is light and heavenly, and sure to satisfy. It looks impressive too!
