Tonight Ant and I landed at a dessert joint in Hell's Kitchen called Holey Cream, located on 9th Avenue between 52nd and 53rd. While they sell many tasty treats - cookies, cupcakes, homemade ice cream, etc. - their signature item is the 'Famous Original Donut Ice Cream Sandwich' (a.k.a. definitely something I SHOULD NOT be eating 3 days before the half marathon... oh well).
Here's a picture:
Step one: slice the donut
Step two: pick your three scoops of ice cream (we went with birthday cake, cookies and cream and moose tracks)
Step three: pick your icing to go on top of the donut (chocolate of course)
Step four: pick your topping (our choice was a sprinkling of graham cracker)
Put them all together and VOILA! You have one HUGE dessert!
I'd definitely recommend stopping by if you're in the area... only thing I'd suggest is that they serve the donut warm (perhaps even fresh) rather than room temperature, but it was still so worth it!
