I have always loved anything cookies and cream. Every dessert decision I make ends with Oreo or kind-of-like-Oreo choices. I came to Chicago promising myself to try new dessert places, but I was overwhelmed by the number of restaurants available.
But worry no more - here is a list of ten places to visit for a nice cookies and cream fix.
