The Best Fast Food Desserts

List Rules
Milkshakes do not count

The best fast food desserts include the creamy ice cream sundaes, the warm and soft cookies and the other sweet treats offered by our favorite fast food restaurants. While few actually need to add another couple hundred calories after eating a fast food meal, that fact doesn't take away from how delicious these fast food restaurant desserts are.

Most yummy fast food desserts fall into two categories, those that are ice cream based, like sundaes, and those which are baked or fried, like cookies or pies. From there, the sky is nearly the limit on how restaurants can customize these desserts. Many feature unique sundaes like the Steak N Shake Turtle Sundae, the Culver's Banana Split or the Coldstone Creamery Founder's Favorite. Others mix the toppings into the ice cream itself, like the Dairy Queen Blizzard, McDonald's McFlurry or the Culver's Concrete Mixers line.

In the baked or fried category, cookies and pies rule. Few can deny the deliciousness of cookies from Chick-fil-A or Subway or the simple goodness of the McDonald's Apple Pie or Taco Bell's Caramel Apple Empanada. Perhaps the best fast food deserts come from combining ice cream and baked goods into one dessert, like the Coldstone Creamery Brownie a La Cold Stone, the Sonic Molten Cake of the Chick-fil-A Cookie Sundae.
