Once in a great while, a sweet emerges that is just so worth it that I’ll happily justify every sinful bite as my one treat in an ultra-healthy day, by logging a few extra miles, or simply because I deserve it! This year, two such splurges crossed my lips: this one and Vegan Goodness Cookie Desserts.
You may have heard me mention Pearl River Pastry before. They are the bakery behind Abe’s Dairy Free Muffins, and they made those impressive Vegan Goodness Cakes from Cafe Indigo possible. Continuing to up the ante, they also partnered with Cafe Indigo to share these to die for Vegan Goodness Cookie Desserts.
This, my friends, is what dairy-free cookie heaven tastes like. Cafe Indigo didn’t just hit the mark with this thick, sweet, rich, double-serving Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar – they knocked it out of the park. Each bite is pure sugary deliciousness, perfectly baked to retain a slight cookie dough like vibe that is a touch crumbly, but delightfully so. And of course, it’s packed with copious amounts of perfect semi-sweet little chocolate chips. But I’m left trying to decide, is it really “goodness” as the label claims, or addictive evilness! Either way, I’m hooked.
Admittedly, chocolate cake isn’t my thing, so the Vegan Goodness Chocolate Whoopie Pies didn’t have the same swoon affect for my tastes. Nonetheless, whoopie pie lovers will surely rejoice over these jumbo-size treats. The sandwich vessels are thick, sweet and cocoa-y (almost like hot chocolate in flavor) with a dense textural cross between cake and cookies. The frosting is whipped, super-sweet, surprisingly soft, and generous (that part I like) smooshing out the sides with each bite (fun!).
