These next few posts are based on some samplings of cookies from a recent weekend getaway to Las Vegas.
Vosges is a popular chocolate shop at the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace. They also have a small selection of cookies. I went for the Costa Rican Chocolate Chip cookie. For an average-sized $5.50 cookie, I expected the finest cookie I had ever tasted. Instead I had what tasted like a baked ball of butter and brown sugar (not horrible- who doesn't like butter and brown sugar). Large chocolate pieces were sparsely mixed in. The cookie was very crumbly and difficult to eat. Obviously the cookie was made with high-quality ingredients, but that couldn't save this cookie. Next time I'll pass, and I encourage you to save your $5.50. I'm sure you can find plenty of other uses for that money in Sin City.
Vosges also makes a caramel toffee cookie and a naga cookie (pumpkin base with chocolate chips and Indian curry). Visit the Vosges website for more information. You can buy their chocolates at some grocery stores. http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/
