So, ya’ll know I couldn’t meet up with some incredibly sweet and amazing fellow food bloggers at Blissdom without taking them on a massive dessert taste-testing spree, right??!

We came across this gorgeous little cookie shop nestled in the Opryland Hotel, and it seriously kept calling my name every time we passed by it.

We arrived on a Thursday, but with all of the crazy Blissdom fun, we didn’t have a chance to go on our cookie party until Saturday afternoon. All of these gorgeous pastries, cookies, and decadent desserts seriously taunted me for two and a half whole days! Do you know how hard it was to pass by this delicious case every day and not order like fifty cookies before our dessert meetup?? Very hard. Let me tell you.

But somehow, I refrained! :) And the best thing about going on a dessert taste-testing spree with five other bloggers is that you can order a TON of desserts. A ton. *evil grin*

Loved this cinnamon bun. The middle was perfect: soft, gooey, and loaded with icing.

See that chocolate sphere-shaped thing in the middle here? That was yummy. It was called a “chocolate bomb” and yes. It was the bomb. Sorry to be so ’90s. It was yummy layers of chocolate cake and chocolate mousse all wrapped up in a decadent chocolate ganache topping. Glorious.

You can also order any of the freshly baked cookies with a scoop of cool gelato sandwiched between them. Their flavors sounded amazing. This was salted caramel, it was incredible!

Ooh, I think this one was my favorite. That is a huge layer of buttercream frosting stuffed between two chewy chocolate chip cookies coated in chocolate. Loved this one!! The cookies were perfect.
