Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.

It’s OK to give into that sweet tooth occasionally. And when you do, check out these places certain to make your dentist cringe.

Sweete Memories Specialty Bakery
6501 N. May

You’re familiar with its signature box. You know the one — white with cellophane wrapping and a gold sticker. Inside, it’s the perfect frosting-to-cookie ratio. Cookies aside, Sweete Memories also lets you indulge in lemon bars and chocolate chews, as well as special orders.

1 Smart Cookie
12100 N. Rockwell

Delight in oatmeal scotchies and coconut paradise cookies. Even better, get a dozen decorated in the theme of just about anything you can dream up. Need a back-to-school treat? Order a dozen school buses, crayon boxes or cookies shaped like the periodic table of elements.

Bricktown Candy Co.
100 E. California

It doesn’t matter what kind of sweets you’re looking for; this candy shop has something for everyone. Look forward to a dizzying array of chocolate, old-fashioned hard candy, rock candy, jelly beans, gummies and liqueur-filled treats. While you’re shopping enjoy some fresh gelato.

Nothing Bundt Cakes
2520 W. Memorial

It’s really hard to stop eating mini-anything. When it’s a delicious bundtini, it’s just plain impossible to stop at one. Why? Because it’s a two-bite-sized Bundt cake with frosting. If you try nothing else here, check out the mouth-watering red velvet and lemon raspberry flavors.

Cookies ’N’ Cards
115 12th S.E., Norman

This shop has a little bit of everything. With gifts, jewelry, greeting cards, cupcakes and, of course, cookies, you can sate most cravings while also grabbing treats for family and friends. Like it on Facebook for current specials and updates about cake club. You read that right: cake club.

Slice of Heaven Gourmet Cheesecakes

351 N. Air Depot, Midwest City

Sometimes when a desire for dessert hits, the only thing that will do is cheesecake. Slice of Heaven is there for such occasions. Try traditional flavors like banana and chocolate chip, or venture over to the specialty menu for more out-of-the-box fare like Butterfinger and pistachio.

Ingrid’s Kitchen
3701 N. Youngs Blvd.

Cookies, cakes, pies, tarts, pastries and Danishes all vie for your attention at this Euro-American specialty bakery and restaurant. Don’t pass up the Chocolate Whoopie, a chocolate mousse sandwiched between a light, pastry-type crust. Grab a streusel or Danish to enjoy for breakfast the next day.

Ingrid's has really taken a dive in quality, taste and authenticity.  As a long time German customer, I am craving for those real tastes and products.  Not happening here.
