Sweet Treat: Cookie Monster Ice Cream at Morelli's
We regularly take upon ourselves the weighty task of finding desserts and sweets in Atlanta worth seeking out. It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it, right? Know of a delicious delight we should try? Let us know in the comments or via Twitter.
The Spot: Morelli's Ice Cream
The Treat: While it's tough to choose just one flavor to spotlight at Morelli's — especially since the flavors available at their three local locations change so regularly — one of the gourmet ice cream shop's flavors recently hit the spot. We present to you: The Cookie Monster. Sure, you love cookies 'n' cream, and who doesn't? But Morelli's amps up that classic combo a few degrees by taking their already-decadent cookie dough ice cream and then folding in Oreos, Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies, more chocolate chips and then folding in a dark chocolate fudge swirl.
The Accompaniment: Normally we'd recommend a coffee, maybe a soda, but for something like an ice cream as rich as the Cookie Monster? Just get yourself a nice cold glass of water.
