According to Family Radio, May 21, 2011 is Judgment Day -- better known as the end of the world as we know it. So what does this mean exactly? It's pretty simple: Save for the chosen few, we're all going to die. And, there's nothing we can do about it.

Well, actually, there is ONE thing. We can do things we'd never dare to do if we knew we'd be sticking around to pay the price -- for example, eating the fattiest, most indulgent desserts imaginable. Who cares about a few extra pounds and a sugar coma when death and destruction is right around the corner?

Here are 10 decadent desserts to eat before you die -- be quick because time is running out!

Does Better Than Sex Cake need any further explanation? Fine, here goes: It's layers of cheesecake, graham cracker crust, chocolate pudding, whipped cream, and dark chocolate shavings. Have just one piece and you'll be begging for more.

Every flavor of cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory is delicious, but the Red Velvet Cheesecake is particularly sinful. It's red velvet cake layered with classic cheesecake and cream cheese frosting -- so good you'll forget the end is near.

Remember the Cherpumple? It's apple pie baked into a spice cake; a pumpkin pie in a yellow cake; and a cherry pie into a white cake -- all stacked together and frosted with gobs of whipped cream cheese frosting. There's no better time to eat one (or worse one for that matter).

Sad about the end of the world? Drown your sorrows in bucket-sized Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sundae. If that doesn't make you feel better, nothing will.

Brownie Upside-down Brownies are so wrong they're right: a buttery, brown sugar base, plus a layer of bite-sized brownies, all coated with in brownie batter and baked -- THEN FLIPPED.

For an entirely different brownie experience, check out Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. Any apocalypse anxiety you might be having can certainly be cured with a pan of these chocolate brownies, cookie dough filling, and chocolate glaze topping.

And, of course, any to-die-for dessert list worth its salt must include the Queen of Decadence, Paula Deen. Her Banana Split Cake -- made with ice cream sandwiches and jar EACH of hot fudge and butterscotch is both -- is completely revolting in the best kind of way.

Have you ever had a Nutella Ricotta Calzone? There's no better time than the fleeting present.

Snickers Pie -- five Snickers bars with mascarpone, eggs, sugar, soft cheese and puff pastry -- is so caloric that food experts in the United Kingdom issued a health warning. But now that hell is on the horizon, we laugh in the face of such warnings. MUHAHAHA.

Fortunately, we have our own frightening dessert monstrosity here in the States -- the Chili's Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie With Vanilla Ice Cream. How bad is it really? Let's put it this way: It has the same amount of calories as THREE Big Macs.

Which desserts do you plan on eating before May 21, 2011?
