The Best Desserts In The Broomfield and Greeley Areas

On-site storage, we’ve got you covered

You should always save room at dinnertime for dessert, especially when one of these desserts are on the table. These are the best cupcakes, cookies, hot chocolate bombs, and popcorn from shops across the Greeley, Colorado and Broomfield, Colorado areas.

But, of course, we can’t talk about local sweet treats without mentioning cinnamon chews. According to the Greeley Tribune, the Greeley-favorite candy seems to have originated at Peters Pop Corn, whose owners passed on the recipe to Tropical Sno, which is now part of Jenny’s Malt Shop. The gourmet cinnamon chews practically melt in your mouth, but if cinnamon isn’t your preferred flavor, Jenny’s offers new flavors weekly.

In addition to cinnamon chews, there are loads of dessert options in Greeley and Broomfield made with love at local shops, and these are just a few of our favorites.

If you prefer to drink your dessert, the 477 Distillery has a list of sweet cocktails that make a great night cap. The Van Sickle Bonfire is by far the most impressive, however. It’s made with vodka, toasted marshmallow and chocolate syrups, heavy cream and is topped with a flaming marshmallow. Blow it out, take a sip and make sure you have a designated driver, because you might want more than one of these.
