Who doesn't love a great dessert? Wednesday is a great day to enjoy your dessert and have an extra one too -- it's National Eat an Extra Dessert Day, which is a day we should all celebrate.
If you are looking to change up your dessert routine from the regular chocolate cake, cheesecake or cookies, here are 10 unique desserts you can try at Utah County restaurants.
Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes
Unicorn desserts have become popular nationwide, but Cravings Alisha’s Cupcakes has its own local version. The Unicorn Float has strawberry Italian soda with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and is topped with unicorn magic (candy and sprinkles).
Location: 93 S. Main St., Pleasant Grove
Deep Fried Cookie Dough
When Daily Herald reporter Court Mann went on his epic downtown Provo Dessert Crawl, he tried Station 22’s Deep Fried Cookie Dough.
The Deep Fried Cookie Dough is coated in a sweet batter, fried, and served with walnut butter and cinnamon sugar on top, alongside some vanilla ice cream.
Location: 22 S. Center St., Provo
If you’ve never heard of Fruta Crush’s Mangoneadas, you should check them out. Daily Herald reporter Court Mann tried them on his downtown Provo Dessert Crawl earlier this year, and said the treat was “a fitting, smooth-but-sugary kick in the pants to end the evening.”
Mangoneadas are giant mango-flavored sherbet popsicles, which fill the plastic cups in which they’re frozen and served.
Location: 198 W. Center St., Provo
Clark’s Island Donuts
What is a malasada? It's a Portuguese donut, without a hole that are rolled in sugar or cinnamon and sugar. They can also come filled with different kinds of cream and custard.

Sweet Rice with Mango
Rice may not sound like a dessert food, but at Thai Village, they serve Thai sticky rice in coconut sauce topped with mango. It's about to become your new, favorite dessert.
Location: 410 N. University Ave., Provo
Hong Kong Waffle Cone
Koi Express Sushi Wrap and Ramen
Hong Kong waffle ice cream cone is a popular street treat in Hong Kong and New York, but is pretty unique in Utah County.
The waffle looks like bubbles and is egg based and the flavor reflects that, which varies greatly from American waffles. It comes with toppings like walnuts, sprinkles and graham cracker crumbles.
Location: 1283 N. University Ave., Provo
Rolled Ice Cream
Roll With It Creamery
At Roll With It, the ice cream doesn't come in scoops. The Thai Rolled Ice Cream starts with a custard base and is poured on a cold plate at -15 degrees. The ice cream is the chopped, and mixed with toppings as it freezes. It is then rolled into small roles and topped with even more toppings.
Location: 63 E. Center St., Provo
Fillings and Emulsions
Desserts are the name of the game at Fillings and Emulsions, and their cake rolls come in some unique flavors including Guava Cream Cheese Roll, Tres Leches Roll, Violet Lemon Roll and Double Chocolate Roll.
Location: 326 W. Center St., Provo
If you like berries with your dessert, The Wash in Provo has Kouign-Amann, which is a buttery pastry with strawberries and ice cream.
Location: 1195 N. Canyon Road, Provo
Pig on a Cloud
Bacon may not immediately come to mind when you think of desserts, but it probably should. Bruges Waffles and Frites serves several dessert waffles including the Pig on a Cloud -- a Liège Waffle with bacon, crème fraîche and caramel drizzle.
