Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Desserts in Carlsbad

Sometimes you just need chocolate, and sometimes you need it surrounded by peanut butter.

I apologize in advance for anyone with a nut allergy, on a strict diet, or lactose intolerant. Unfortunately you might be missing out on the best desserts in Carlsbad.

1- Hands down, the best frozen yogurt in town is from in La Costa at 6990 El Camino Real. I highly recommend the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup flavor. I usually add peanut butter, sugar-free fudge, little caramel cups, a Reeses cup and a cherry as toppings. I find this place to have not only the best yogurt flavors and toppings, but also to be reasonably priced and have the nicest staff of high school and college students around.

2- Recently I discovered a second peanut butter chocolate dessert worthy of writing about. It's Peanut Butter Chocolate Whoopie Pie. It tastes a million times better than it looks or sounds. It's light and rich in flavor. A perfect appetizer...I mean end to your meal.

Of course my hunt for the best peanut butter chocolate dessert is far from over so be sure to leave a comment and tell us where you get your favorite dessert in Carlsbad.

Deanne... I totally agree about the frozen yogurt! That place is awesome (a.k.a. The Yogurt Shack) and has participated in many school fundraisers! I love the school support :)

Peanut butter and Chocolate are a match made in Heaven. I couldn't agree with you more.

Love this article - I am a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan! Self Serve Yogurt is good, but I try not to use styrofoam because it is so bad for the environment. Menchie's has paper cups and is just as good (if not better?) in my opinion. The Corvette Diner in Liberty Station is one of my family's favorite places to stop when we are in San Diego. Their PBCB (?) peanut butter, chocolate and banana milk shake is delicious and they also have a Rory Burger with peanut butter and bacon. Yummy!!!

If you haven't tried the Peanut butter/Dark Chocolate fudge at Al's Cafe in Carlsbad then you're surely missing a bit of local heaven. They also sell it at the Carlsbad Farmer's Markets.

Menchie's is good too! Love Corvette Diner (I love everything '50's) and tried the peanut butter burger there I wasn't totally sold on it, but peanut butter chocolate milk shakes are the best anywhere!

I am missing out on that, sounds amazing. I'll go try that next! Love fudge. Good thing I went on a run this morning.
