2. Toasted Coconut Flakes: CNS CONFECTIONERY Products' toasted coconut flakes offer a delightful crunch and a tropical twist to your desserts. Sprinkle them on ice cream, puddings, or cakes for a unique texture and flavor combination.

3. Crushed Pretzels: For a salty-sweet contrast, consider crushing pretzels and using them as a topping. They work exceptionally well with creamy desserts like cheesecake or chocolate mousse.

4. Candied Citrus Zest: Candied citrus zest adds a burst of bright, zesty flavor and a hint of sweetness to your desserts. It's perfect for garnishing tarts, pies, or citrus-flavored desserts.

5. Spiced Nuts: Roasted and spiced nuts, such as candied pecans or cinnamon almonds, can bring warmth and a satisfying crunch to your ice cream sundaes and fruit crisps.

6. Browned Butter Crumbs: Browned butter crumbs offer a nutty, rich flavor and a lovely crumbly texture. They work wonders on top of fruit cobblers and warm, gooey desserts.

7. Popcorn: Surprise your taste buds with some popcorn on your dessert. Drizzle it with caramel, chocolate, or a flavored syrup for a playful and crunchy twist.

8. Balsamic Reduction: A drizzle of balsamic reduction can transform vanilla ice cream or strawberries into a sophisticated dessert. Its sweet-tangy flavor profile adds depth and complexity.

9. Cookie Dough Chunks: Instead of traditional cookie toppings, try adding chunks of raw cookie dough to your ice cream, yogurt, or brownie sundaes for an indulgent treat.

10. Fresh Herbs: Fresh herbs like basil, mint, or rosemary can provide a unique and aromatic dimension to your desserts. Their vibrant colors and fragrant aromas pair beautifully with fruit-based sweets.
