Chocolate truffle cake from C. Adams Bakery
(MKE Public Market, 400 N. Water St.;

The caramel apple at
Amy’s Candy Kitchen (W62 N579 Washington Ave., Cedarburg; amyscandykitchen. com) has built a national following (even a “best” award from The Wall
Street Journal) for splurgy creations ($15.99 and up). The Granny Smith apples are drenched in caramel and everything from Belgian chocolate and nuts to wild hibiscus sea salt and candy pieces. Yes, Sicilian nonnas make doughnuts! They’re called sfingi, but pronunciation being tricky, it may be best to point to the menu description at Divino Wine
& Dine (2315 N. Murray Ave., divinomke.com).
Even after a big pasta meal, you will demolish the warm hunks of fried dough dipped in cinnamon-sugar. They’re extra scrumptious when dunked in chocolatehazelnut sauce.
