Winners will be contacted via email. Prizes will be mailed, so this Baking Friday is open to participants residing within the continental U.S.

I’ve waited nearly a year to introduce Fairytale Brownies’ truffle brownies. I got a taste of the walnut at last year’s Chocolate Show, but it was still a new product in development. This month, I’m happy to present Fairytale Truffles.

Fairytale Truffles come in three flavors: caramel, raspberry swirl and walnut. These snack-sized brownies are covered in rich, Belgian dark chocolate. A creamy layer of caramel flows through the middle of the caramel brownie truffle; raspberry swirl is baked with raspberry purée that swirls through its top; and chopped walnuts are laced throughout in the walnut truffle brownie.

In addition to a box of the Fairytale Truffles, this month’s prize also includes a tin of the Fairytale Cocoa — just in time for colder weather.

Also, New York’s Chocolate Show is quickly approaching again — how time flies! The Show runs from November 7th to 10th. And don’t forget to check out Fairytale Brownies there at booth C75.

Thank you, Fairytale Brownies, for this week’s Baking Friday contribution!

I’d say Milk and Cookies on Commerce Street in the West Village. They make small batches so you can be assured of warm cookies with molten chocolate and they continue the baker’s dozen tradition of a free extra cookie.

Levain Bakery!

Finding the best Chocolate Chip cookies is a cause I have long been devoted to…And for me so far, it is a tie between those at City Bakery (New York, NY) and Levain Baker (on the UPS in New York). Yum!


Oct 17, 07:41 AM

well, honestly, the best chocolate chip cookies is always homemade. . . but if you have to go elsewhere for it, levain bakery is pretty next level (for the full and hearty type). for thinner, chewier, gooier variety try almondine in dumbo.


Oct 17, 07:53 AM

city bakery (trite i know)


Oct 17, 08:10 AM

within NYC, it’s Levain.
Outside, it’s a woman named Jeanne Caminis, who runs a company called Effortless Entertaining in Baltimore.

Homemade are definitely the best (the Toll House recipe is a standard) but I have found a fine substitute near where I work. Eileen’s Cheesecake, which does justice to its namesake, also produces a killer chocolate chunk cookie. They are almost bite-size, and when warm from the oven, deliciously gooey and addictive!


Oct 17, 08:19 AM

Levain, followed by Jacques Torres, City Bakery and Petrossian.

If they aren’t baked for you specifically I’d say Milk and Cookies is tops. I like City Bakery too, but you have to like that baking soda-y taste. And while this isn’t a cookie per se, it does have all of the same ingredients and many of the qualities I’m looking for, so I’ll mention the fresh baked chocolate chip scones at Cha An.


Oct 17, 08:24 AM

I have to cast my vote for homemade. They’re always warm and plentiful!!

City Bakery no doubt!! So chewy and chocolatey.


Oct 17, 08:43 AM

Just out of the oven…warm…melted chips with walnuts….homemade !!!!


Oct 17, 08:44 AM

City Bakery


Oct 17, 08:56 AM

Jacques Torres for hoarding, Gray Dog for sharing!


Oct 17, 09:07 AM

Mom makes delicious ones, and the dough is yummy even before baking. :) Love Jacques Torres too. Crunchy is preferable to soft. No nuts, please.

David’s Cookies!

The client services person at my last workplace – oatmeal chocolate chip from scratch….

I’m gonna be somewhat of a reble and put in my vote for Jacques Torres’ Chocolate Mudslide cookies which are technically double chocolcate but they take the crown as far as I’m concerned. Chocolate batter AND huge chocolate chunks…how can you go wrong?


Oct 17, 10:15 AM

My Aunt Mary, without question. But for a second choice, I’ll join those above voting for Levain Bakery.


Oct 17, 10:19 AM

Luscious Food
Crisp-edged but soft in the center, with a superb salty-sweet contrast, and pecans instead of archetypal walnuts.
59 Fifth Ave., Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-398-5800; $0.75

a tie – levain, petrossian and city bakery for different reasons.


Oct 17, 10:46 AM

Petrossian — it’s crisp and thick with excellent chocolate — a unique combination.

Christopher Stephens

My brother makes the best home-made chocolate chip cookies, but after that, I’d have to agree about Levain.


Oct 17, 11:47 AM

Celia makes the best cookies!


Oct 17, 12:02 PM

Toll House and Mom!


Oct 17, 12:11 PM

If you can’t have homemade, I have to agree with Luscious Food. They’re close to my apartment and easy to get to!

David’s Cookies makes the best in my opinion. So buttery and delectable—yum!!


Oct 17, 03:04 PM

Meeting Street Cafe in Providence (Brown campus) — they are the size of your face…the perfect combo of soft, chewy and crunchy…and amazingly, the generous amounts of semi-sweet chocolate chunks stay melty long after they come out of the oven! magical.


Oct 17, 03:46 PM

oh, this is difficult… almondine in dumbo and city bakery


Oct 17, 04:47 PM

Me! But just because I know exactly how I like it…crispy edges, chewy center and coarse shavings of Valrhona Palmira.


Oct 17, 06:08 PM

not sure if this qualifies—-but i pine for the chocolate lilikoi mac cookies from Hawaii’s Clara’s


Oct 17, 08:52 PM

Jacques Torres for its crispy edges, chewy center and loads of dark chocolate. they serve it warm so you can really smell the chocolate. mmm


Oct 21, 08:28 PM

Depends on the prevailing mood, of course, but Levain hits the spot any day!


Nov 3, 10:32 AM

Homemade is the best! So, I’d have to say that I make the best! Just ask my hubby. :) I also love the Chewy Chocolate Supreme cookie found at The Great American Cookie Company Store in the mall…..


Nov 21, 09:46 PM
