I don’t trust a person who doesn’t like chocolate. I mean really, how can you not? It’s so rich and decadent. Then again, I am a total chocoholic. Either way these 5 Kansas City eateries are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and fulfill all those chocolate cravings you’re having.
Looking for some one of best chocolate desserts in KC? Then stop by McCormich and Schmick’s for a Chocolate Bag. Served in a brown wax bag and filled to the rim with white chocolate mousse, fresh berries, whipped cream puts this chocolate desert at the top of our list!

There might actually be too many amazingly chocolaty items to choose from at Seasons 52. Their Belgian Chocolate S’more’s, Mocha Macchiato, Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte, and Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cannoli make it almost impossible to choose just one desert. If you really can’t narrow it down to just one, make a dinner date with your gal pals. Agree that everyone will order one desert and that you’ll all get to sample each other’s. (This was actually the only solution I could come up with to avoid ordering 5 deserts for myself.)

Looking for a fun twist on a traditional dessert? Well look no further. Christopher Elbow, Kansas City’s premier chocolate maker, has been designing and experimenting with unique ice cream flavors even before his chocolate business took off. Fortunately, he was able to marry the two by creating some of the richest, creamiest, and most flavorful chocolate ice creams Kansas City has to offer. My personal favorite is the Spiced Dark Chocolate available only at the South Plaza Location.

Question: How can a place that specializes in chocolate be bad at making a chocolate dessert? Answer: It can’t. Panache offers some of the richest, most decadent chocolate KC has to offer. If you’re in the mood for a more traditional chocolate dessert order the Torte. If you’re planning on being a little more adventurous the Oreo Espresso Cheesecake cannot be overlooked!

Mclain’s Bakery has been a staple in Kansas City since 1945. After 70 years in the business, it’s safe to assume these guys are doing something right. Infamous for their pastries and cakes (among other desserts,) Mclain’s is an essential stop on every chocolate lover’s list. Their simple treats are nostalgic with classics like brownies or delicious chocolate cakes that’ll melt in your mouth.
