Mar 10 2014 - 11:07am

This past weekend at SXSW [1] in Austin, chef Dominique Ansel debuted the highly anticipated chocolate chip cookie milk shot [2], a "soft chocolate chip cookie in the shape of a shot glass filled with cold, fresh milk." To be expected, festival attendees snapped and shared shots of the dessert, filling us with longing and deep-seated envy. Take a look at the cookie shot from every angle, and see if tasters deemed it delicious or overhyped.

Dominique started the trend, so he called the hashtag #cookieshot.

So Close You Can Almost Touch

But you can't. The limitations of technology deem this impossible. We suffer with you. To make matters worse, apparently "yes, they taste as good as they look."

Still Plenty of Love For the Cronut

Dominique also served his beloved Cronuts to the crowd. "Would you ever wait about 2hrs in a line at midnight for some pastry? I would never. Still I did," said this partygoer about the milk and honey Cronut (with lightly scented lavender sugar).

Lots to Go Around

Sheet trays upon sheet trays of Cronuts and cookie shots are probably making your mouth water.

Celebs Take Cookie Shots!

Seth Rogen [11] and Zac Efron [12] even tried the cookie shot. Seth looked a little wary, but Zac was all in.
