No doubt, you’ve seen the non-frozen counterparts, but don’t be surprised the next time you bite into one with a little surprise. If the Cronut taught us anything, it’s that classic desserts can sometimes work even better when matched up with another equally classic dessert. Such is the case with these jewel-like macarons filled with semifreddo instead of buttercream in flavors like strawberry-chamomile, Mexican chocolate and juniper-lime.

Some caterers are taking the idea of a popsicle to the next level. This is the choose-your-own-adventure version of an ice cream bar — pick a size (mini or regular), choose one of the featured gelato or sorbeto base flavors, then select a chocolate dip and drizzle. There are even fun crunchy elements like coconut, sprinkles and chopped nuts that can be added before the chocolate hardens.

Classic Sno-Balls

Guas’ come in such flavors as wedding cake, dreamsicle, strawberry and nectar all of which can be ordered topped off with condensed milk. It’s a fun treat for any event.
