Step aside, pumpkin spice and maple. Who said chocolate isn't a fall flavor? Not Levain Bakery. The NYC-based bake shop is bringing back its Fall Chocolate Chunk Cookie just in time for brisk autumnal days and the ensuing munchies. The sweet-spiced treat originally debuted last year, and it was such a hit that it's back for another round this season.
The bakery's Fall Chocolate Chunk Cookie is a unique combination of ginger, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and molasses with rich Valrhona chocolate chunks. If you haven't heard of it before, Valrhona is a one-hundred-year-old, artisanal chocolate brand made by pastry chefs in Tain L'Hermitage, France. It's also a B Corp-certified product with 100 percent cocoa traceability — so a treat you can feel extra good about. In signature Levain form, the Fall Chocolate Chunk Cookie is six ounces, and it owes its crispy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside texture to the impressive size. The returning seasonal flavor joins Levain's year-round cookie lineup of Chocolate Chip Walnut, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip, Two Chip Chocolate Chip, and Caramel Coconut Chocolate Chip.

The Fall Chocolate Chunk Cookie hits the market on Monday, September 18, and will be available in all 12 of Levain's retail bakeries for pickup and local delivery. Not a New Yorker? Don't despair. Levain Bakery has locations in Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles -- and it also ships same-day nationwide so foodies all across the U.S. can satisfy their sweet tooths and fall flavor fevers. Fans can also schedule a specific delivery date at the time of checkout if they plan to send the Fall Chocolate Chunk Cookie as a festive gift.
The seasonal treat will be available for order via the Levain Bakery website. A 4-pack runs for $29 before shipping and comes baked-to-order and gift-wrapped. An 8-pack costs $49, and a 12-pack costs $79 (and comes with free shipping).

This autumnal treat will only last for as long as the season does, so curious fans should be sure to breeze through Levain Bakery for a taste.
