Luckily you don’t have to go all the way to Italy this summer to get world-class gelato. Amorino is perfect for those of us who hate making decisions, because here you can combine as many flavors as you want. And it’s a good thing, because with flavors, like organic mandarin stacciatella, mango alfonso d’Inda, and cioccolato Ecuador pure origin, there are way too many delicious flavors to choose just one. Make sure to order your gelato in a cone, because they’ll scoop it into the shape of a flower.

Winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, the founder, Johnny Nicolaides, of Molly’s Cupcakes not only makes drool-worthy cupcakes, but he also gives back to local schools throughout Chicago in honor of Miss Molly, his third-grade teacher. Miss Molly baked cupcakes for the whole class whenever one of her students was celebrating a birthday. Her love for cupcakes inspired Johnny to create his own delectable version. And we are truly grateful, because the Cookie Monster, a cookie dough filled cupcake with a chocolate-chip cookie on top, makes all our chocolate-chip cookie dreams come true.

You know those times when all you wanted was to eat all of the cookie dough out of the bowl, but your mom wouldn’t let you, because she lovingly wanted to protect you from salmonella? You were probably willing to take the risk, because we all know cookie dough is better than actual cookies. Cookie Dough Creations has saved us and made our dreams a reality by creating pints of edible cookie dough that are egg-free. They also have cookie dough cookie sandwiches, cookie dough cheesecakes, and cookie dough ice cream, cookie dough brownies, and just about every other cookie dough dessert you could possibly imagine.
