Alcoholic doughnuts from MOP Donuts, WA View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Really, is there anything better than doughnuts and alcohol? Of course there isn't. Thankfully for us, in 2016 MOP Donuts gifted Australians with the obvious combination we deserve. 2. Nutella doughnut cones from Tella Balls Dessert Bar, NSW View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Following the boom of doughnut cones around the world, Tella Balls decided to bless us with them too (but slathered in Nutella, of course). 3. Japanese-style egg waffles from Picapika Waffles, Vic View this photo on Instagram instagram.com These bad boys get their name from the egg-shaped design of the waffles and are big all around Asia - and now Melbourne too! 4. Doughnuts from Doughnut Time, Qld, Vic, and NSW View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Although Doughnut Time opened in late December of 2015, 2016 was undoubtedly the year of doughnuts. 5. Ice cream sandwiches from Mister Fitz, Qld View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @msyan_ Lucky for us, the makers of Doughnut Time were also the people who blessed us with the prettiest ice cream sandwiches Australia's ever seen. 6. Fried Maltella balls from Piccolo Me, NSW View this photo on Instagram instagram.com This next-level deep-fried 1kg ball of Nutella ice cream is doused in salted caramel sauce and crushed Maltesers, and is just as delicious as it sounds. 7. Rolled ice cream from Scroll Ice Cream, SA and Vic View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Following the lead of Thai street vendors, Australia has opened a few places where you can actually watch your ice cream transform from liquid to heaven in just minutes. 8. Japanese cheesecake from Uncle Tetsu's, NSW View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Not really like any cheesecake you've ever had, the Japanese version is light, fluffy, wobbly, and just so damn delicious. 9. Fish cone ice cream from Zero Degrees, NSW View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Taiyaki are Japanese fish-shaped pastries that are normally filled with red bean paste, but in Australia that’s not enough, so we load them up with ice cream instead. 10. Bubblegum milkshakes from 50SIXONE, SA View this photo on Instagram instagram.com You probably thought the milkshake craze was soooo 2015, but 50SIXONE is singlehandedly keeping it going strong. Filled with lollipops and candy necklaces, this monster-shake is as delicious as it is pretty. 11. Matcha egg waffle pots from The Glass Den, Vic View this photo on Instagram instagram.com This waffle pot filled with matcha waffles, freeze-dried fruits, and topped off with a mini Magnum is easily one of the most Instagrammable desserts in Victoria. 12. Korean soft serve from Honey Creme, WA View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Honey Creme soft serves are very well loved in Asia, so in 2016 Western Australia was blessed with the magic too. 13. Panookies from Honey Badger Dessert Café, Tas View this photo on Instagram instagram.com One of this year's greatest inventions has to be the Panookie - a cookie baked in a mini pan. Oh and with a marshmallow layer that's topped with ice cream and chocolate fudge, of course. 14. Little Mostro gelato cones from Jersey Jack Gelato, WA View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Imagine a gelato cone. Now imagine a gelato cone with three scoops, mini cones on top, and a whole bunch of other goodies. Well, that's the (not so) Little Mostro for you. For more Best of 2016 content, click here!
