The Book-Themed Desserts You Have To Try

Including treats relating to Harry Potter, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and On The Road.

I've always heard that tea is the proper complement to a good book, but it turns out I have been mislead this whole time. As a new infographic from proves books are actually best paired with dessert. It's an answer so obvious I don't know how I never saw it before — after all, isn't everything better with dessert? And so what could be better than eating dessert while reading a good book? The answer is nothing, that's what.

Imagine: munching on a plate full of chocolate chip cookies while curled in an arm chair reading a cozy adventure story. Biting into a scone while sitting in a coffee shop diving into some snappy work of British lit. Chewing on forkfuls of leftover cake in your kitchen at 4 a.m. because you have a page turner is just too good to put down. Yes, desserts are the best thing to go with books, hands down.

But in order to reach peek dessert/book levels, it makes sense that the dessert you're munching on should be in some way book-related — perhaps even related to the very book you're currently reading. But how can you achieve such perfection? Well, fortunately, is here to help you out with a new infographic of 20 desserts inspired by novels.

Some of the choices are obvious, like butter beer from the Harry Potter books or Turkish Delight, which was a major plot point in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe . Some are more subtle, like the blink-and-you'll-miss-it reference to ice cream and apple pie in On the Road . But fortunately you don't have to search the pages of your favorite novels in order to find references to dessert, because has done it for you. Enjoy!
