“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.”

EDIT: Sweet Temptations is now closed.

I love desserts. What I love more is that we have so many delicious dessert locations in this area. Your sweet craving can be fixed within a 10mile radius of your house, it’s awesome. Most recently I went to Sweet Temptations. This sweet treat location is probably the closest to my house and ironically, it’s one of the last ones I’ve had the opportunity to try- Sweet Temptations.

I was going to try the cupcake, write a blog entry about whether it was comparable or better than the other locations I’ve tried until I saw this cookie/peanut butter concoction and OMG (read as, Oh Em Gee). By the time I took a picture of it, I had already devoured quite a bit of it because I don’t have much self-control when it comes to that much deliciousness. It was a sugar cookie base, drizzled with chocolate, covered in Reese’s peanut butter cups and another small layer of peanut butter drizzle for $3.00; I saw it and fell in love.

At first I was nervous that the sugar cookie with all that sugar would be too much but it wasn’t, the cookie was honestly just an edible plate to make it easier to eat the pile of deliciousness in the middle and to hold more chocolate. Next time (or the first time) you go to Sweet Temptations, see what other desserts they have instead of just cupcakes- try something new. If you see this there, TRY THIS! I highly recommend it, you won’t be disappointed. You can also order cupcakes, birthday cakes, wedding cakes as well as pick up some candy. Make sure you become a fan of theirs on Facebook because that’s where you can find out about weekly deals and contests & see pictures of some of their recent creations. Sweet Temptations has a location in Albany (469 Albany Shaker Road), Schenectady (432 State Street) and is opening a new location in Lake George (3609 Lake Shore Drive).
