"Their cookies are amazing, but the best things they have, IMO, are their house-made marshmallows and hot chocolate! Pro tip: If you can't stand the wait, put the hot chocolate in the fridge for a couple of hours. It will thicken as it cools to the densest, creamiest combo chocolate mousse/pot de crème ever. Only better! It’s heaven on earth." —chrisa443ec9017

27. Sundaes and more from Sugar and Plumm.
