Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop
CHOCOLATE CHIP | SAN FRANCISCO
When in San Francisco, you must have Ghirardelli Chocolate. I’ve been a fan of Ghirardelli for most of my life and reserve putting their chocolate chips in the cookies I bake for only the most special occasions. I was excited to visit and try a cookie directly from their kitchen. Was I in for a treat!
They offered to heat the cookie and it was worth the short wait. The famous Ghirardelli chocolate was melted to perfection. Once I decided how to eat this monumental* cookie, it crumbled beautifully as I pulled it apart. The cookie was ultra-sweet and sugar-forward. It’s perfect for sharing with a friend, your family or a small group of cookie tourists.
*Disclaimer: This is a mountain of a cookie. Do not try to eat this by yourself. You will fail. Or have a stomachache (like yours truly).
WHILE YOU'RE THERE
You're at Ghirardelli. Chocolate shop 'til you drop.
THE COOKIE TOUR STOP
You can get a Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookie in several locations, but I recommend going the classic route and having it at Ghirardelli Square. Use the address for the shop at 900 North Point Street if you need to map it. Grab your treat and wander to the grass for a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the best cookie-eating scenery in the City by the Bay.
