“Top Chef” contestant and pastry chef Malika Ameen outdoes herself with these dense, fudgelike cookies. Laced with Vietnamese Saigon cinnamon to give them a special sweet flavor, these chocolate delicacies also include chunks of bittersweet, milk, and white chocolate for a creative twist on the traditional chocolate truffle.
Warning: This company claims they can’t be held responsible for the cookie craving that may set in after eating one of these gooey treats. It’s hard to imagine anything tastier—or more addictive—than the mix of double dark and semisweet chocolate, marshmallows, and almonds.
To create this kosher Jewish pastry, the bakers roll cream cheese dough with ingredients such as jam, walnuts, fruit, cinnamon, and chocolate to create a sweet filling. The Perfect Coffee Break for Two ($40) includes two mugs plus Pecan Meltaways (20 ounces) and Assorted Rugelach (16 ounces).
