In honor of #justdessertsday celebrating the premiere of Bravo's Top Chef: Just Desserts, we could not help but post about our favorite new twist on party desserts: gourmet whoopie pies! If you haven't had the pleasure to stumble upon the Limelight Marketplace in Manhattan's Chelsea district, well--you're missing out on a major treat (well, lots of them!). Once a den for clubgoers, this converted church is filled with epicurean entreprenuers from ever-adorable (and delicious) The Butterly Bakery to the fudge-mavens at Mari's New York to our new favorite dessert vendor, WannaHavaCookie, proprietors of whoopie pies redux!
Our picks for your next indulgence? Chocolate with mint filling, chocolate with peanutbutter filling, chocolate with vanilla filling (the original), and red velvet with raspberry filling! Divine.
PS: If you're picking up your dress at Kleinfeld, this little spot is a quite (brisk) walk down the block. It'll be worth the calories--and wedding research. The folks at WannaHavaCookie sell these babies as favors in duos, trios, and boxfulls!
