Inventive pastry chef Dominique Ansel has been all over the place lately—he offered honey and lavender cronuts in Los Angeles last weekend, and this week he'll bring his newest creation (as well as the croissant-donut hybrid, of course) to the music-loving masses at SXSW. So what has the cronut man dreamed up now? A "shot," of sorts: Chocolate-chip cookies are baked into a cylindrical glass shape and filled wtih organic, vanilla-infused milk, riffing on a beloved childhood classic.

After the concoction debuts in Austin this weekend, it'll show up on the menu at Dominique Ansel Bakery sometime next week. A rep from the pastry shop couldn't confirm the exact date for the NYC launch, but did note that the treat will be served from 3pm onward, as an "after-school special." So don't be surprised if there ends up being two long lines at the Soho bakery every day.
