Chikalicious Dessert Bar (the fancy one) and Dessert Club (the bakery) are high on my personal favorites list. The last few times I was around their way, I didn't have the chance to stop by, but recently an opportunity did arise and I was amply rewarded. First, they've begun making cookie eclairs. The 'cookie' aspect translates to a layer of crunchy choux pastry. I am not aware of how exactly this is achieved, but the result is perfect-a crunchy dessert eclair. Dessert Club is filling them to order with your choice of custard-I obviously went with chocolate. Silky custard filling, crunchy shell, covered in rich, dark chocolate. It's like if the most perfect chewy with crunchy circumference chocolate chip cookie decided it wanted to become an eclair, this is what it would be.
