Most individuals pick bars based on the vibe or the drink selection. Me? It’s all about the desserts. Few luxuries in life compare to the indulgent first bite of a hot-from-the-oven skillet cookie, topped with ice cream and fudge.

What makes the skillet cookie the premiere dessert? The warm, decadent cookie combined with the fresh-from-the-freezer ice cream is the ideal juxtaposition of temperatures. Yes, a warm pie is nice, but have you ever sunken your spoon into a skillet cookie only to resurface with a TV-commercial-quality spoonful of melted chocolate chips on a slightly under-baked cookie? Why have just a cookie or just ice cream when you can have the best of both worlds?

If you, too, find yourself more intrigued by the promise of a dessert than a craft cocktail, check out these seven spots for hot skillet cookies.
