Dessert Goals festival returns to NYC to satisfy your sweet tooth

We're craving some sugar and Dessert Goals is here to deliver. 

The festival dedicated to everyone's favorite meal will return to NYC on Oct 13, 14, 20 and 21 to provide a much-needed pick-me-up of delicious snacks and with a helping of photo-worthy moments (#omgdessertgoals). Essentially, the event, which will be held at Sound River Studios in Long Island City, is every child's paradise, and we'd be remiss not to make a pitstop (and steal a few bites along the way ourselves).

With a lineup as beautiful as it is delicious, it's hard to tell where we'll snack first. Baked in Color's tie-dye chocolate chips put a funky spin on the classic cookie while Woops! macaroons deliver sweet pastel color and delicious flavors such as peanut butter and jelly and the avant garde London fog (but the 21+ crowd will gravitate toward the piña colada offering). Rebecca's Cake Pops are museum-worthy. No matter the shape, color or theme, these treats are delicious and picture-perfect (check out the Yankee helmets, tennis balls, ice cream cones and try to resist one...or 10). Of course, no dessert extravaganza would be complete without some cookie dough, and 2 Dough Boyz is here to provide ample amounts of the treats.
