Cronut Who? The Iron Press Unleashes The Wookie (Waffle + Cookie)
In the dessert universe, 2013 has been the year of the hybrid. First came the Cronut. Then came its less attractive sister, the Crookie. Now there's this. Behold, the Wookie--part waffle, part cookie!
Unrelated to the hairy humanoids of Star Wars, the Wookie is a hot, gooey chocolate chip cookie pressed by a waffle iron, then topped with French vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Hellooooooo. There's a peanut butter version, too.
Each is made to order at The Iron Press at OC Mix in Costa Mesa.
