Melt Bakery Fried Apple Pie from the Hester Street Fair

It looks like the last Hester Street Fair is this weekend and there are some great sweets on offer at reasonable prices.   What’s available if you head down there you ask?  Well, according to Blondie and Brownie Melt Bakery has some delicious fried apple pies!  If it’s still mad warm you might also want to try their cookie-heavy ice cream sandwiches too.

On the other had, if the temperatures do drop this weekend it would be a great excuse to start trying some of the great hot chocolates New York City has to offer.  Serious Eats NY recommends Caracas at La Maison du Chocolat.  Served with a square of chocolate and whipped cream $8.00 (!)  I like L.A. Burdick in Flat Iron.

For those looking for vegan Halloween treats or just some sweets that are a bit healthier this weekend I recommend checking out Vegan Divas.  They have some special Halloween-themed cupcakes and other goodies.  Available at Butterfield market.
