30 Unconventional Desserts

From Bacon-Infused Dessert Tacos to Deceptive Dessert Burgers

— July 17, 2013 — Lifestyle
If you're looking for something quirky and unique to serve after dinner to your guests, then these creatively unconventional desserts will certainly have them pleasantly surprised.

A dessert dish often suggests something sweet and sugary, but these unconventional desserts however, have infused all sorts of unique ingredients that you would normally find in main course meals or appetizers. While some people prefer to keep their dessert recipes light since it's the last dish of the course, these unconventional desserts are more for those who are looking to make these traditionally sweet dishes pop with eclectic ingredients and out-of-the-ordinary features.

From dishes humorously inspired by poutine recipes to tacos stuffed with bacon pieces, these unconventional desserts will certainly have your guests craving one more serving.
