KANSAS CITY — Decadent desserts are debuting at national restaurant chains.

At Baskin-Robbins, the candy bar-inspired flavor of the month, Totally Unwrapped, has layers of fudge-covered pretzels, fudge- and caramel-covered peanuts and caramel swirled through peanut butter and chocolate ice creams.

Frozen yogurt chain Pinkberry has unveiled a new strawberry shortcake flavor for a limited time. The new pineapple upside-down cake milkshake at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews combines vanilla soft-serve with pineapple juice and cake flavor, topped with whipped cream, pineapple, caramel sauce and a cherry.

Sonic Drive-In is serving brownie batter and yellow cake batter shakes, made with vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped topping and a cherry. 

“In developing the Brownie Batter and Yellow Cake Batter Shakes, our culinary team worked to recreate those fond childhood memories of baking at home and that moment when you got to sneak a taste from the mixing bowl,” said Scott Uehlein, executive chef at Sonic. “We’re thrilled to offer guests another opportunity to enjoy these nostalgic treats in a unique way, like only Sonic can do.”
