Time zones don't compromise sweet tooths. Sit down and take notes on the best treats in these European countries for the most important meal of the day, dessert. 

Churros in Spain

Growing up, churros were one of my favorite treats typically enjoyed at an amusement park or fair. Fast forward to my first visit to Spain when I indulged in the heavenly dessert, the Nutella filled churro. This may not be the most authentic way to enjoy the Spanish treat, as you will find most vendors selling a cone of multiple churros with a chocolate dipping sauce on the side. Whether it's filled with Nutella, cream or comes with a sauce on the side, this dessert will not disappoint. 

Macarons in France

What many people do not know is the Macaron cookie was actually born in Italy. Originally made of almond powder, sugar and egg whites, this cookie only had one layer. The Macaron we know and love was created by the grandson of Louis Ernest Laduree after he had the idea to fill them with a "chocolate panache" and to stick them together. Today, Laduree (amongst many other macaron shops) offer a large variety of flavors from chocolate and coffee to rose petal and salted butter caramel.

Trdelníks are made from rolled dough wrapped around a stick and grilled in front of you. It's topped with sugar and served with ice cream, chocolate, caramel, strawberries or more inside! I noticed these on every other block around Prague and they can also be found in many other Central European countries.

Tea Pastries in London

The Queen isn't the only one who enjoys a lovely high tea. Some of the best desserts in London can be found on the top tray of an afternoon tea platter. From mini pastries to delicious scones you truly cannot go wrong at an English tea. 

Gelato in Italy

Gelato may appear like ice cream at first glance, but it is actually made with milk instead of cream. Healthy snack choice am I right? No need to feel guilty for consuming this bad boy twice a day during your travels. Gelato is churned slower than regular ice cream adding to its density. The best part? Gelato offerings include multiple seasonal flavors like lavender, watermelon, pumpkin and more.

#SpoonTip: Run away if you see Gelato that mimics the shape of a fluffy mountain. This kind is made with artificial sweeteners, fat, and preservatives! Yuck!

Sometimes the sweetest part about traveling is the food! Enjoy the local cuisine and tag me in your foodie finds along the way @mindovermolly.
