For those who love an opulent chocolate fix, the Morelli's Bacio Sundae is tailor made for you: imagine chocolate, hazelnut, & soft vanilla gelato adorned with chocolate truffle, Piedmonte hazelnuts, Magnum chocolate swirls, and hazelnut sauce in a chocolate cup topped with fresh whipped cream! For coffee aficionados, you can't miss out on their Almond Amaretto Sundae with Kilimanjaro coffee gelato, Venezuelan chocolate gelato, and soft vanilla gelato with a shot of amaretto coffee liqueur — it's a dessert and nightcap in one!
Last Thursday I got invited to celebrate Morelli's anniversary at Shangri-La Plaza Mall and we were treated with a gelato party! We got to try all the flavors, their sundaes and drinks. Everything was so good! Morelli's gelatos tasted like the real thing because they use no artificial flavorings, if it's the pistachio, you can really taste the authentic flavor of the pistachio. My top 3 favorites were: Dulce de leche, Pistachio and Fruits of the Forest with yogurt.
We also got to pick a sundae and a drink, but Bettina, Princess and I shared each other's sundaes and drinks too so we can them all. Here's what we ordered:
Bailey's - this is my order and it contains hazelnut and sot vanilla gelato topped with chocolate sauce, fresh whipped cream and a a single shot of bailey's liqueur in a chocolate cup. I love the contrast of sweetness and the little bitterness after the Baileys was poured onto the gelato. I actually love this because Baileys is one of my favorite alcoholic drink besides Jameson whiskey.
Morelli's Baccio - This is Bettina's order and it contains chocolate, hazelnut and soft vanilla gelato served with chocolate truffle, Piedmonte hazelnuts, swirls of magnum chocolate and hazel nut sauce in a chocolate cup and fresh whipped cream. FYI Baccio means "kiss". I like the great texture that it has because of the whole hazelnuts that are sprinkled on top of this sundae. Too much goodness in one sundae glass if you ask me.
Strawberry Sundae - Cess' order which contains vanilla and strawberry gelato served with strawberry sauce, fresh strawberries and fresh whipped cream. This reminds me of summer for aome reason. The vanilla gelato softened the sourness of the strawberry and I looveee the fresh strawberries too!
Extra Thick Shakes - - since my favorite of all the gelatos is Caramel Dulce de leche, I ordered it in milkshake. This is made of 2 big scoops of gelato, milk and whipped cream. Their milkshake is placed in a super huge glass. Yum! This is to die for!
Hot Chocolate - topped with fresh whipped cream or marshmallow. Bettina went for the marshmallows I think because we had too much whipped cream already haha!
Thank you Morelli's, Sir Bob, Frances and Denise for inviting us on your anniversary and making us feel like kids again!
