I had previously stated that Milk Bar was not good at chocolate. It seems that in my absence they have been righting some wrongs.
First of all, this:
It's a "5-Borough Cookie" or something like that. The first ingredient? Cocoa powder. It's even chametz-free, for all those of you observing passover (Sephards-only! It has a little cornstarch. Also I guess this advice is coming a little bit late. Next year?)
It's also extremely delicious.
Next up, the chocolate malt cake truffles are back, and delicious as ever:
Also, they had a "chocolate swirl," which seemed like it was just a chocolate croissant shaped like a cinnamon roll, but I didn't try it, so I can't tell you for sure.
Finally, I got some of the birthday cake truffles, which are one of my favorite non-chocolate desserts in NYC, and I made an amazing discovery. The third ingredient is white chocolate! This explains why I love them, and why Leila does not.
Bottom Line: Milk bar is known for a somewhat rotating menu, so let's wait to see whether this effort is sustained, but this is a promising development!
