Sweet Indulgences

Two of Katie Lee's favorite things are coming together, the beach and Sweets, and she is ready to share the best of the best! Decadent donuts in Arizona and Sticky Buns in South Carolina represent the best of pastries. California is representing with the Cococarma, a coconut, caramel, ice cream skillet cookie. Katie delivers the two hottest sweets in Hawaii with a classic Shave Ice on the North Shore of Oahu and a beachside Flourless Chocolate Cake in Maui. A decadent, rich cake with Maui Vanilla Creme Anglaise and Kona Espresso Ice Cream is definitely worth the trip for a Hawaiian-tinged, gooey dessert. In Florida, nachos get amped up and become Dessert Nachos.
