Kerrin Rousset, a New Yorker now living in Switzerland, has been following her sweet tooth around the world for over 10 years. As a food and travel writer, she combines her two greatest passions in life. She loves calling Zürich home, being in the heart of Europe with so many cultures and cuisines at her fingertips. She is always on the search for authentic, traditional foods, local specialties, and most of all – the sweet stuff in life. When not traveling, she is at home baking, photographing, tasting chocolate collected from all of her travels and of course, planning her next adventure. The endless travels, tastes and discoveries are all shared on her blog, and Twitter. Just don’t be surprised if you too have a sweet tooth after reading!
Ask 10 New Yorkers where to find the best sweets in the city, and you will most likely have 10 different lists of places, with few, if any overlapping addresses. And they probably are all the best. Every neighborhood in the city has its cache of places with “the best” cookie, brownie, hot chocolate, ice cream, candy, cupcake… or even macarons now too. With just a short visit to the Big Apple, you’ll want a mix of fun, delicious and very New York addresses. Virtually impossible to list them all, and difficult enough to narrow down the selection to just a small handful, I have shared below the places I never miss on each transatlantic trip.
