The cookie artisans at Quintessential Cookies create colorful cookie creations for any occasion, whether it's a wedding, birthday, graduation, or a day you really want a cookie. Made from scratch, raspberry-filled linzer heart cookies and almond chocolate-chip biscotti are available by the half-dozen, and cake pops embed creative designs in the shapes of footballs, popcorn boxes, and tulips. Customers can bring in photos to be scanned and transformed into a 100% edible decorative photo cookie, and other cookie specialties, such as platters and cakes, divert attention from well-meaning veggie platters at office parties.
Every person?s taste is different, which is why Yogurtini offers a wide range of frozen-yogurt creations to please every palate.

Guests drizzle crests of creamy treats with more than 78 decadent and healthy accents, such as fresh strawberries, slivered almonds, and blueberry flaxseed, which contains omega-3 fatty acids and more fiber than a wool sweater tailored for a giant. All of Yogurtini's blends deliver health benefits via carefully protected live cultures, which can strengthen the immune system.

Servers at The New York Stuffed Cone Company scoop ice cream crafted from natural ingredients, alternating creamy layers with crushed candy, fruit, and other toppings. The resulting creation, a stuffed cone or sundae, might require a spoon to do the heavy lifting needed to eat brownie bits and bananas mixed with flavors such as english butter toffee, chocolate-raspberry truffle, and coconut avocado. Sweet-seekers can opt for a belgian waffle stuffed with caramelized bacon or cupcakes baked fresh onsite. With free WiFi, they can wile away their stay by browsing the Net and sipping italian espresso and cappuccinos.
Sweet Lucille's started with one homemade recipe: Aunt Annette's carrot cake. From that one little cake, the business has grown into a bakery and cafe with omelets and pancakes for breakfast, and sandwiches and salads for lunch. But regardless of the expanded menu, the cakes still reign supreme. Sweet Lucille's bakes mini red velvet, lemon, and chocolate cakes, gourmet cake pops, and artful special-occasion cakes in addition to fruit-filled pies and a variety of cookies.
Peter Goldfarb sits watching his mother, who holds a textbook with one hand while churning cookie dough with the other. As she pulls double duty as a mom and graduate student, she unwittingly alters the course of her son's life. The young Peter will soon grow up, move to Los Angeles, and pursue a career in television production—but his friends won't care about his industry stories; they'll want to know where his shipments of ridiculously tasty cookies are coming from.
This true tale is what inspired Peter to eventually enroll in culinary school and coax his mom into cofounding Chip'n Dipped. Today, the duo and a crew of bakers make all-natural cookies, chocolates, and confections—including gluten- and dairy-free options—in full view of customers, as well as for impressed reporters from large publications such as the New York Times, Newsday, and the Candyland Gazette. Using kosher ingredients and minimally processed chocolates, the mom-and-son team creates treats loaded with bioflavonoids and free of hydrogenated oils and preservatives.
