Dominique Ansel, the mad genius creator of the croissand/donut hybrid Cronut, is back with yet another culinary masterpiece. This time, the chef and owner of the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York, has created an edible mash-up of chocolate chip and a glass of milk.
Ansel molds an extra-aerated cookie dough into the shape of a shot glass (it seems that he also lined it with chocolate to make it hold liquid), then fill it with ice-cold milk.
Ansel told TODAY that the inspiration of his latest creation actually came to him when he tried an Oreo for the first time (it was just "not a natural combination in French culture," he admitted). Everyone told him that he had to try it with milk, and so why not combine the two, he thought. "I love a good cookie, and it's funny because I never had one until I moved ot the U.S. This is my version 2.0," Ansel added.
That looks oh so delicious!
