The Horny Ram

There’s nothing better than a warm chocolate chip cookie and a scoop of ice cream. The folks over at The Horny Ram are offering this irresistible combination with their decadent Skilled Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie. This piping hot morsel comes with a large scoop of Oddfellows Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream so make sure you have a spoon because you’re going to want to lick off every delicious bite. Grab a seat out on the outdoor terrace and enjoy National Chocolate Chip Day with a view of Second Avenue.
Clinton Street Baking Company
4 Clinton St.

If you’d rather have your chocolate chips for breakfast then make your way to Clinton Street Baking Company in the Lower East Side. Their famous blueberry pancakes also come in a chocolate chunk version that will take you straight back to childhood. Of course, they also come with the restaurant’s signature maple butter and chocolate sauce. It’s definitely the perfect breakfast for a chocoholic looking to get their fix.
217 E. 26th St.
New York, NY
Celebrate the opening of Tipsy Scoop, the boozy ice cream “Barlour” that’s changing the world of dessert, with a scoop of their Spiked Mint Chocolate Chip flavor. This mint chocolate ice cream is infused with crème de menthe and chocolate liqueur and sprinkled with chocolate chips. Stop in for happy hour and enjoy an ice cream flight of four flavors that are served in chocolate and sprinkles-rimmed shot glasses. Yes, you do actually have to be 21 years old to consume these tasty treats but there are also non-alcoholic flavors available like root beer and Shirley Temple. Come check it out for yourself this National Chocolate Chip Day!
