You can eat this even if it isn’t your birthday. We won’t tell. With white chocolate, vanilla cake crumbs and rainbow sprinkles, this treat should be your new go-to when a cake craving hits.

Fruit is involved, so we can eat them for breakfast, right? Whatever your excuse, you definitely won’t be able to stop eating these sweet little bites. They have the perfect raisin-to-dark-chocolate ratio and taste way more decadent than the movie theater version.

13. Joe-Joe’s Truffles

This dessert takes the best parts of two desserts, Joe-Joe’s (TJ’s version of Oreos) and truffles, and combines them. The truffle features the sweet cream from the inside of the Joe-Joe’s dipped in a decadent layer of dark chocolate.
