It looks SO beautiful!

When it comes to dessert, my two favorite items are cookies and cake. I'll take those over pie or cheesecake any day! A local bakery here in Eastern Iowa has combined cookies, cake, and another delicious ingredient to create one of the best-looking desserts I have ever seen!

This past summer, we told you that a new Cookie & Dreams location would be opening soon in Coralville. The bakery, located at 901 E 2nd Avenue in the Iowa River Landing, held their grand opening back in July. The location is the third here in Iowa, in addition to Davenport and Bettendorf. They are also planning to open a store in Ankeny, and expand into Illinois with three more.

If you've never heard of the Iowa-based company before, their website says that their cookies are "arguably, the best in the US." Some of the cookie flavors listed on the website include PuppyChow, Cookie Monster, Snickerdoodle Cheesecake, Caramel Pretzel, and the OG Chocolate Chip. In fact, the OG Chocolate Chip is what they used to make this glorious creation:

That right there is a cookie cake filled with NUTELLA. Yup, that's right... Nutella. I don't know about you, but that photo is enough to make me drive to Coralville right now. If you need more convincing, just look at this video:

A few different bakeries the specialize in cookies have popped up here in the Corridor recently. In addition to Cookies & Dreams in Coralville, there's also Insomnia Cookies in Iowa City, and Crumbl Cookies in Cedar Rapids. Insomnia Cookies is already open for business, but Crumbl Cookies is not. All we know right now is that it's located in the same complex as the Collins Community Credit Union Corporate headquarters on Blairs Ferry Road and that it's set to open sometime this month, although there is no specific date listed. We will update you when we know more!
