Best Over-The-Top Desserts in Schaumburg

Oh, sugar! We want to try all these delicious desserts.

When you want to eat something sweet, why not treat yourself to a crazy dessert? Schaumburg offers plenty of things to do, including sweet shops offering ice cream, cookies and more. And don’t worry, if your kids hit a sugar rush, these indoor play places come in handy.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves! Take your family out to one of these over-the-top desserts in Schaumburg.


Forget about taking a trip to Italy, you can enjoy gelato right here in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. Located inside Woodfield Mall, this gelato shop offers a variety of flavors. The dessert fun doesn’t stop at gelato because they have more options like gelato macarons, waffles and crepes.


These gourmet cinnamon rolls take this classic treat to the next level with some incredible toppings. Try out the Cookie Monster topped with chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chips and chocolate sauce, or order the Very Berry with fresh berries, raspberry jam and powdered sugar on top. Did we mention that these cinnamon rolls are 100% vegan, egg-free, dairy- and lactose-free, and cholesterol-free? 

Crumbl Cookies

What we love about Crumbl Cookies is that the menu changes every week. That means, every time you visit, you’ll be surprised with six different deliciously unique gourmet cookies. And if you want to feed a crowd, we suggest ordering the catering, which includes an option for mini cookies. 


Kurimu isn’t your typical soft serve spot. The ice cream flavors alone include more than 22 options like Very Avocado, Mango Tango, Chocolate Supreme and more. What families will love is the cutest collab they have with Peanuts through Oct. 31! You’ll find the store decorated with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang.

Just a short drive away from Woodfield Mall, we have to point out this amazing ice cream shop in Mount Prospect. It might be hard to choose one flavor. An easy fix? Get the ice cream flight, which includes four scoops of your choice. You can also treat yourself to an ice cream sandwich or chocolate-covered banana.
