Coolhaus serves up wildly creative create-your-own cookie/ice cream flavor combos for $6 a pop. Yes, it’s a bit steep, but this thing is a freakin’ meal replacement. It’s also fantastically indulgent in both calorie count and imagination. You could pair 2 lemon rosemary cookies with a heaping scoop of earl grey ice cream. Or if you require meat at all times, try some brown butter candied bacon ice cream on a brioche cookie. Yes, you heard me. There’s a meat lover ice cream sandwich. Go ahead and eat the wrapper while you’re at it (seriously… it’s edible!).
After deep introspection and deliberation, I finally went for the balsamic fig & mascarpone ice cream sandwiched between two potato chip/Skor toffee bar cookies. It was ridiculous. The salty-sweet balsamic reduction was perfectly swirled into the ultra-rich mascarpone ice cream, dotted with chewy fig chunks. The cookie had a great crunch and stood up like a pro to the fast-melting ice cream in the city heat.
