To celebrate the Bruins being in the playoffs, Top Shelf Cookies and the Ice Creamsmith have joined forces to bring you The Puck! Featuring the cookie that started it all, the Black + Gold, inspired by Boston’s 2011 champions. Luxurious black cocoa is used to make this chewy dark chocolate cookie studded with peanut butter chips. Sandwiched between two Black + Gold cookies is homemade Black + Gold ice cream from the Ice Creamsmith. If you’re a superstitious hockey fan in Boston, this dessert is the dessert for you!
The Puck will be on sale through the playoffs at both Dorchester shops for $6 (for the original 6 Teams of the NHL).
