MY FAVORITE CHOCOLATE TREATS IN NYC
CHOCOLATE CLOUD @ BLUE STRIPES
28 E 13th St, New York, NY 10003
"What’s better than chocolate mousse? Drinkable chocolate mousse. Brenner’s wackiest creation is also his most unique. Chocolate clouds are essentially just that: impossibly light and fluffy whipped chocolate that’s dispensed from what looks like a beer tap (although here it’s known as a cloud machine)."

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE COOKIE @ LEVAIN BAKERY
351 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10024
"Levain Bakery's cookies are the stuff of legend. The softball-sized treats continually make "Best of New York" lists, have inspired copycat recipes all over the Internet, and they take up the bulk of the 20,000+ Instagram posts tagged #LevainBakery."

DARK HOT CHOCOLATE @ MARTHA'S COUNTRY BAKERY
263 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
"This Queens-based mini-chain goes beyond the standard cup of cocoa, serving up peanut butter, red velvet, and cinnamon-inflected Mexican varieties. In business since 1972, the bakeries all sport modern design elements like exposed brick and natural wood. Still, you’re more likely to find locals inhaling slices of cake than laptop-toting bloggers typing away between sips of macchiatos. The hot chocolate is smooth and rich with a light milkiness, and on occasion, you might just find a chocolate syrup smiley face staring back up at you."
