Sweet Treats Week at Nyctastes!

It’s Sweet Treats Week here on Nyctastes and every day this week I’ll be featuring some of my favorite delicious and affordable sweet treats throughout the city. Okay it’s already Tuesday I know but Monday went by so fast I don’t even count that as part of the week anymore. I have to start with one of my favorites of course the mini cupcakes from Baked by Melissa.

This month’s special flavor is seen here in the middle- a Brownie hot Fudge Sundae Cupcake. Wow this is extremely fudgy and sweet. It truly did taste like a brownie sundae to me but overall it had a little too much sugar to enjoy more than one.

The others in the box are my standby favorites. Red Velvet with its wonderfully addictive vanilla frosting and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough whose cake is always incredibly moist. Much moister than all the other flavors which is a little odd.

At $1.00 a cupcake these bite sized creations are pretty expensive. However if you have impulse control issues when it comes to dessert (as I do) these actually work in your favor. I find myself stopping by almost every day but I always stick to 3 at the most. (Okay in the picture there’s 6 but 3 were for Mr. T). That’s the most I’m willing to spend on these and I get my sweet fix satisfied without going overboard and feeling guilty.

So there you have it. Our first Sweet Treat of the Week!! Stay tuned. We'll be enjoying some pretty interesting treats this week from sweets in former dance clubs to old favorites from Maine right here in NYC.
