Bees bring us honey, which is bright and golden nectar. It's sweet, sticky, and simply amazing. These honey desserts will prove you wrong if you think sugar is the best way to sweeten your desserts. Honey's nuanced flavour will make your sweet treats stand out.

While it has more calories than sugar (64 vs. 49 per tablespoon), it is sweeter, so you don't need as much of it. So if you are looking for the best honey-based desserts, here is a list for you. These honey desserts will undoubtedly create an uproar.

1. Baklava Cookie Bars

They're similar to baklava, but in cookie bar form. They're also a lot simpler to make. You won't need to stack sheets of phyllo dough with this quick recipe. You'll get similar baklava flavours and textures without the effort by using a soft cookie crust, a spiced nut topping, and honey-orange syrup on top. They not only taste delicious, but they also smell fantastic, thanks to the citrus and spice blend. While these bars bake in the oven, your kitchen will smell divine.

2. Honey Chocolates

Chocolates are already amazing on their own. When you add honey to the mix, they become even more amazing. As you take a bite, the smooth and decadent chocolates burst with golden honey. The combination of rich chocolate and sweet honey is divine. You can't stop eating them no matter how many you've had.

3. Honey Buns

These honey buns are legends in the making. You'll love how the honey butter glaze is both filled and topped on the buns! It doesn't stop there, as delicious as they are. To balance out the sweetness, the buns are studded with walnuts or pecans and raisins. They also provide a nice textural contrast with their crunchy and chewy texture. For an epic breakfast or afternoon snack, serve honey buns with coffee or tea.

4. Kahk

Kahk are Arabic cookies that are traditionally served during the Islamic holiday of Eid. They're delicate cookies with a surprise centre. Powdered sugar is sprinkled on top for extra sweetness and a lovely presentation. The cookies are soft and buttery as they are. Your tastebuds will be greeted by a sweet and sticky filling made of ground pistachios, sesame seeds, and honey when you bite into them.

5. Greek Honey Cookies

These Greek Christmas cookies, known as melomakarona, are tender and sweet with a kick. They have a distinct oval shape and are served piled on top of one another to resemble a tower. Aside from their distinct appearance and presentation, these cookies are popular for their flavour. You can imagine how complex the flavours are because the cookies are infused with brandy, cinnamon, orange zest, and honey. As if that weren't enough, they're also studded with walnuts, which add nuttiness and crunch.
