Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie- Levain Bakery 

You know those commercials where they pull apart a warm cookie and the insides are perfectly gooey? The “gooeyness” of this chocolate chip walnut cookie will surpass your wildest dreams. This decadent dessert can be found at any of the four Levain Bakery locations in New York City. The walnut chocolate chip cookie is the most ordered item- and for good reason! If you are craving a warm and chocolatey treat definitely take a trip to Levain. Not only is this cookie super Instagram-worthy but the taste is definitely worth the social media attention it is receiving.

What do you get when you combine a warm Hong Kong egg waffle with delicious ice cream? A masterpiece. The Wowfulls dessert shop can be found in the Lower East Side of New York City and they are famous for their Gai Dan Jai waffle cones and crazy topping combinations. On my wowfull I got oreo cookie crumbs, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate syrup and strawberry Pocky sticks. I had seen these beautiful ice cream cones all over social media as they often cater major events like The Governor’s Ball however I questioned if they were as tasty as they were aesthetically pleasing. The answer is YES! The crispy waffle cone and the scrumptious toppings are absolutely worth a trip to NYC.

Black Tap Milkshakes 

If you have had any form of social media for the past year it is very likely that you have heard about  Black Tap Milkshakes. Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beers can be found in SOHO, Midtown and the Meatpacking district and they have received huge amounts of recognition in the past year for their wild shakes. The milkshakes range from “Sweet and Salty” to “Sour Power” and each one is decked out in candy, cookies, and anything else you can imagine. The milkshakes were definitely delicious but in regards to their social media craze, they are slightly overrated. If you are in the area, stop by but I would recommend a Wowfull cone or Levain cookie first!


S’mores in a Jar- The Smith 

Who needs a campfire when you can take a trip to The Smith in Midtown, East Village or Lincoln Center for a decadent s’more in a jar. This deconstructed dessert has two layers of rich chocolate mousse, graham cracker crumble and a roasted marshmallow to top it off. Not only will this treat look gorgeous on your feed, but it is definitely worth the Instagram hype. All chocolate lovers- check out the Smith, you will not regret it!

Donut Ice Cream Sandwich- Holey Cream 

Last but certainly not least is the infamous donut ice cream sandwich. This treat is the definition of dessert inception. At Holey Cream in Manhattan you can pick from a huge variety of fresh donuts and ice cream options to find your perfect pair. While you probably won’t even be able to finish half of it, this Holey Cream dessert will leave you saying “Holy Cow!”

  1. Argh! I read this and now my lil belly is grumbling. I agree about the giant milkshakes, by the way! In Canberra where I’m from there’s a similar thing and though they look really pretty they always leave you with nothing but queasiness and regret.

  2. Hello! Ugh!! I wish I would have read this before I went to New York last week, but now I have a list of places I need to try next time I visit. I feel like I need to go eat something sweet after reading this. My mouth is actually water 😂

  3. Man, that Wowfull dessert and the doughnut Ice Cream looked so appealing to me! I used to work at a doughnut shop and we had doughnut ice cream sandwiches but it didn’t look like that! I don’t have an Instagram but I can always pay attention for food!
