24 Sickly-Sweet Desserts That Will Make Your Belly Ache Just By Looking At Them

If you’ve got a massive sweet tooth, you might believe that there isn’t a sweet nor decadent dessert that could be a match for your love of sweet foods. Until, of course, you eat the whole thing and begin to suffer that instant regret because you know you’re about to experience that oh-so-familiar belly ache, post-sugar exhaustion (A.K.A the sugar coma), or even just that extreme bloating that forces you to unbutton your pants at the dinner table. We’re all too familiar with having eyes that are bigger than your stomach, wanting more than what we can actually handle. But by even looking at these desserts, you’ll know you’ve met your match.

Using a combination of every form of sugar you could probably think of, these sweets are just that - nauseatingly sweet. Not only are they visually utterly over the top, some of them even have a way of making your stomach churn via mere appearances. We’re talking vibrant colours, layers upon layers of cream and cake, stacks of donuts and insane milkshakes. Others, however, really do make you want to demolish the whole thing in one sitting. They’re ooey, gooey, chocolatey, fudgey, crunchy, chewy and completely mouth-watering to say the least. Some might even make you feel simultaneously satisfied and nauseated! A bundle of sugary fun.

They do say you eat with your eyes first, so unbutton your pants in anticipation for these sickly sweet desserts that will make your belly ache by just looking at them!

24 Rainbow Hot Chocolate

via Refinery29.com

A warm pastel rainbow of creamy, milky white chocolate, spotted with mini marshmallows. Full cream milk is heated with vanilla, sugar, food colouring and white chocolate to make this rich hot chocolate. This colour feast is really what the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is like. It’s topped with headings of cream, sprinkles and blue icing. It’s just too pretty to drink! That being said, although completely endearing, it’s too rich as a meal accompaniment or replacement for your morning coffee.

23 Brownie Pecan Pie Ooey Gooey Butter Cake

via pinterest.com

Ooey gooey, fudgey, chewy deliciousness in your mouth. The recipe calls for the combination of brownie mix, eggs, butter, granulated and brown sugars, vanilla, salt, pecans and cream cheese. That’s a lot of ingredients for one hefty cake! On top of the base brownie mix, the recipe requires the addition of over a whole cup of butter, and four and a half cups of sugar. That’s a lot of butter and sugar! This creamy, sugary, crunchy, buttery recipe just screams nauseating (but honestly, I’m still tempted).

22 Fudge Filled Chocolate Chip Bars

via allrecipes.com

The brilliant idea of combining chocolate chip cookies with chocolate fudge has led to the creation of these decadent, irresistible fudge filled chocolate chip bars. Kind of like blondies, these bars will have you going back for more. They’re chewy, soft, moist and delicious, just like any great cookie should be. Combined with the fudginess of, well, fudge, you’ve got yourself a slightly sickening yet tempting treat. They say it’s easy to demolish the whole tray, but I’d recommend sharing them around to avoid any post-indulgence ickiness!

21 Unicorn Milkshake

via sugarhero.com

Want to make spewing rainbows a reality? This magical concoction is a strawberry milkshake made with coconut strawberry swirl ice cream, and white chocolate macadamia creamer. It’s spotted with mini marshmallows, topped with an assortment of colourful candies. It’s like a rainbow exploded all over the place. Served with an adorable unicorn straw, the shake is topped with bundles of rock candy, pink wafer cookies, sour rainbow belts, lollipops, rainbow sprinkles, coloured chocolate rocks and thick vanilla frosting. That’s right - not whipped cream, actual frosting.

20 Salted Caramel Sour Cream Cake


Hngggg. Sorry, a little drool just dripped out of my mouth. Moving on. Cake, caramel sauce, frosting, sour cream and salt. Sounds like an odd combo, but this decadent cake works so dynamically with the combination of sweet, sour and salty. But mostly sweet. I’m getting ooey, gooey, moist, soft, creamy vibes here. It’s quite sensuous, really. Indulgent, to say the absolute least, but I just know this one will also be filled with plenty of regret in the form of nausea and a sugar crash.

19 Donut Stack Milkshake

via asideofsweet.com

Mmm, donuts. Personally, I love donuts, but I can’t understand the phase we’re going through that involves adding the entire contents of a bakery on top of milkshakes. This milkshake also features waffles AND pancakes. How do you even eat this?! That straw would certainly not reach the actual milkshake, unless it was some kind of super long magic straw that didn’t get bent while pummelling through the layers of donuts, cream, pancakes, sprinkles, more donuts and waffles. And more donuts. Do you eat them first, and then drink the milkshake? Wouldn’t you get full first? I’m baffled, and my stomach hurts.

18 Magical Trifle


Layers upon layers of cotton candy flavoured whipped cream, crushed golden Oreos, Lucky Charms marshmallows and sprinkles. There’s something about these rainbow-coloured desserts that makes me feel queasy. There’s only so much artificially coloured and flavoured stuff you can eat, you know? You’d probably get half way and politely decline for fear of that whole rainbow spew thing again.

Swaying from the classic coloured white chocolate or vanilla frosting, this recipe uses cotton candy flavour. So basically sugar flavoured sugar! Anyone else’s teeth tingling?

17 Candy Drip Cake


If the bright blue fondant icing wasn’t enough to catch your attention, this super fun cake is loaded with heaps of fruity, chewy candies and chocolate. We’re talking candy pineapples, strawberries & cream, bananas, giant snakes and chocolate buttons covered in sprinkles (also known as chocolate freckles). It kinda looks like the candy factory exploded on top of the cake. As the main event of a kids party, this one will definitely be appreciated. I just feel sorry for the parents who have to deal with their hyperactive youngsters, followed by the dreaded sugar belly ache.

16 Carnival Milkshake


It’s time for a party! But forget spending it throwing balls into clown’s mouths or tossing rings. After this, you’ll likely be spending it clutching your stomach on the ground. This crazy shake somehow manages to pack 4 scoops of strawberry ice cream, 1 cup of frozen strawberries and 1 cup of milk into the one glass, to be topped with giant rainbow lollipops, sour tape, sprinkles, whipped cream and vanilla frosting. Queasy yet? Let’s drizzle strawberry syrup over it all to top it off. Served with a candy necklace, too. Sugar coma, here we come.

15 Apple Pie Donuts


Who would’ve thought to combine apple pie and donuts and coat them in cinnamon sugar? They definitely deserve a medal. These hefty, fluffy, deep fried goodies will not only make you nostalgic for Nanna’s apple pie but also for some hot, greasy donuts. They’ll disappear quickly from the table, leaving behind sticky fingers and cinnamon sugar powdered lips as the prominent fashion trend wherever they are served. Just don’t eat them before dinner - you’ll likely be pretty full for some time after these sizeable treats!

14 Peanut Butter Chocolate Molten Lava Cake


A step up from the classic chocolate molten lava cake, this peanut butter chocolate version is even richer than the original. I can never get over just how good the combination of salty, creamy peanut butter and rich, velvety chocolate is. With the thick and oozy peanut centre and dense chocolate outer, you’ll probably have to stop half way through for simultaneous feelings of satisfaction and biliousness. It’s basically a large, hot, warm, melty Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in cake form. Need I say more?

13 Caramel Brownie Trifle


Just in case a chocolate brownie isn’t enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, lets add some Cool Whip. And caramel sauce. And chocolate pudding. AND four chocolate bars. Oh dear, that’s taking it just a chocolatey tad too far. Layers upon layers of pudding, brownie, chocolate, caramel and whipped cream. It does sound delicious but wow, so sickening at the same time. It would last for just too long due it’s mere size, so you’d be eating it out of the fridge every day for a week. You may need to unbutton your pants each time!

12 Snickers Cheesecake With Salted Caramel

via snickers.tumblr.com

Here we go. This cheesecake features two types of cheesecake in one - peanut butter, and chocolate cheesecakes. Support that with a layer of buttery, Oreo crust. Top it with oozing salted caramel, salty peanuts, and chopped up Snickers bars. Not to mention some sneaky chunks of Snickers added to the Oreo crust. Luscious, thick and creamy, this cheesy goodness will have your stomach working overtime. Just in case you skipped over Number 12, peanut butter and chocolate = a match made in heaven. I’ll get the heat pack ready for the cramps, though.

11 S'mores Poke Brownies


Betty Crocker, you’ve done it again. S’mores are amazing, brownies are amazing, and poke cakes are amazing. Theses drool-worthy brownies are filled with creamy marshmallow deliciousness and topped with hot fudge, graham crackers and toasted marshmallows. The poking part of the process enables the fudge, marshmallows and scrumptiousness to make its way into the core of the brownie. As amazing as the flavour explosion in your mouth would be, eating too much will probably make you feel a little off colour. Don’t make any plans for right after!

10 Chocolate Tacos

via teenvogue.com

Chocolately, crunchy, colourful fun. Taco Tuesday is even sweeter with these funky chocolate tacos! The sticky brownie batter is cooked for a short time in the oven, then draped over a spoon on top of a bowl to form that classic taco shape. They’re more delicate than your traditional corn taco, but that’s probably due to the fact they’re loaded with sugar. Once cool, the edges are coated in chocolate and dipped in sprinkles. Filled with ice cream, chocolate candies and chocolate syrup, your body might find these slightly disagreeable. Your tastebuds won’t argue though!

9 White Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies


Tis’ the season! Christmas style desserts come out of hiding at this time of year, and what’s more iconic than a candy cane. The quintessential red and white is perfect for the holidays. Note: We’re talking peppermint candy canes. The idea of white chocolate and peppermint is slightly unsettling, but hey, they say peppermint helps digestion! Perhaps all the sugar and butter counteracts that though. Worth an experiment, although no promises can be made about the soothing properties of peppermint after eating these sickly sweet whoppers.

8 Cookie Monster Freakshake


C is for Cookie and M is for Milkshake. Me want cookie! Okay, maybe not this one, because F is for freakshake. Despite being super duper cute and reminiscent of the good ol’ days, the vibrant, artificial blue is best left to Cookie Monster’s fur. Not saying he’s not real, but that kind of blue is only found on cookie monsters and not in food, obviously. Loaded with cookies, both double chocolate and chocolate chip, this milkshake is probably a Cookie Monster’s dream come true.

7 Candybox Cake


This absolute masterpiece is almost too pretty to eat. Plus if you do, you’ll probably get a wicked sugar headache. Don’t be deceived - it’s actually a store-bought cake with just some epic candy decorations. You’ve got chocolate coated wafer sticks on the outside, and a whole bunch of colourful candy delicately placed atop the cake, all tied up with a ribbon and ready to wow the crowd. It’s a cake you’d want to study every bit of it, every compartment, before it gets gobbled up by kids and adults alike.

6 Unicorn Fudge


You pick up a piece of the magical fudge and place it in your mouth. You taste that familiar sugary sweetness. You bite into it, more sugar. You start to chew, and crunch on the sugary sprinkles. The granules break apart in your mouth and your teeth grind together against the microscopic grains of even more sugar. Looks gorgeous, tastes good, but feels like nails scraping down a chalkboard. In your mouth. *shivers* Not to mention that sweet, furry taste left in your mouth. Just too darn sweet!

5 Candy Crunch Chocolate Bar


Yes please! Dense, chocolatey fudge mixed with crunchy Rice Krispies and topped with M&M’s, malt balls and chocolate covered wafers. Inspired by the infamous Nestle Crunch chocolate bar, this treat will have you wanting more, to the point of potentially going overboard and ending up with that oh so familiar queasiness. This recipe uses bundles of delicious dark chocolate, making it even richer and more decadent. A chocolatey take on a Rice Krispie treat that’ll take you back to the days of your childhood.

4 Teddy Bear Donuts


Take this along to your next teddy bear picnic! A glazed donut with strawberry frosting, sprinkles, gummy bears and mini teddy bear biscuits. Cute as buttons, but there’s a little too much sugar happening here. One bite would be perfect, but the whole thing? Not so much. Delightful to look at though and no doubt all the kids will be reaching to grab one! You can try cutting these into quarters to help spread them around but also limit the dessert frenzy to just a few mouthfuls!

3 Candy Cane Cheesecake With White Chocolate Topping


What’s with the candy cane and white chocolate trend? Pink, minty and cheesy aren’t exactly typical words you’d find together when thinking of a delicious dessert. While cheesecake is such a great dessert, making it pink just doesn’t quite sit right. It could certainly make dessert time merry around the holidays with it’s vibrancy, but it just makes it appear more sugary than what it probably actually is, particularly knowing that it isn’t strawberry flavoured. And, I really don’t think the peppermint’s gonna help your digestion that much.

2 Birthday Cake Funfetti Trifle


Everyone loves birthday cake! Particularly when there’s edible confetti involved. There really is something so fun and exciting about confetti cakes. But there’s also just something about trifles that’s just too much for the average digestive system. Cake and cream and cookies and sprinkles and repeat. The ‘cream’ in this recipe is actually a cheesecake mousse - just in case regular whipped cream wasn’t heavy enough! Not saying it wouldn’t be utterly delectable, though. Having baked the cake completely from scratch, this is certainly one for those special occasions.

1 Banana And Chocolate Dumplings With Maple Caramel Sauce


And finally, these scrumptious balls of buttery dough filled with chocolate and banana, drowned in maple caramel sauce and thick cream. Who doesn't love a good savoury dish turned sweet, like dessert pizzas, tacos or calzones? Dessert dumplings are certainly a wonderfully decadent idea, so one or two would probably be enough to satisfy. But of course, they’re too good to say no to, so after five or so, your stomach will be begging you to stop.
