Hey, sweet dish! Here's a list of the best cookies, chocolates and mango mish-mashes to order now.

Eighth: There is no shame in admitting that we have baker extraordinaire Anurita Ghoshal on speed dial. One taste of her chocolate chip cookies...or anything, really, and you'll have her in your most dialled phone list too, sandwiched between mom and dad. The Le Cordon Bleu Paris alumni crafts beautiful fruit tarts (marvel at her golden pear frangipani one), chocolate eclairs, raspberry pistachio birthday cakes and if you're doing what everyone else is doing, then Keto muffins for you. And of course, many mango things are happening in her studio as we speak. If you haven't remembered to place your orders with her well in time - you could go grab a bit of the deliciousness from Deli by the Blue counter In bandra where she retails.

Country of Origin: Country of Origin: Of all the dessert jar-gon flying around, this is the most delicious. Listen to Country of Origin founder Kiran Salaskar (sweet) talk about his patisserie's dessert jars, each a complex galaxy of textures and tastes. These range from the classic Red Velvet and Cookie Dough dessert jars to a seasonal, very fresh Liquid Mango Cheesecake, and a seriously  decadent 10 Layer Chocolate version where a jar is filled with bands of Cookie Dough, Liquid Chocolate Cheesecake, Devil Chocolate Sponge, White Chocolate Cream , Milk Chocolate Mousse, Salted Dark Chocolate Mousse, Nutella , Chocolate Ganache, Chocolate flakes and finally Oreo Cookies. Perfect ten!

House of Cookies: If you have one cheat order on Scootsy this month, save it for the Chocolate Crinkle Caramel from House of Cookies. This thick, almost cake-y cookie is the best there is – dark chocolate bites giving way to a treasure of molten caramel inside. Cookie Monster Ruchika Vyas, also does an excellent Mexican Wedding Cookie –  buttery, sugar-coated and studded with pecans – plus Nutella Sea Salt and a Belgian Triple Chip that's richer than a gold biscuit! Ask for her seasonal flavours which in the past have included Reese's and Peanut Butter, and next month will feature Salted Vanilla Toffee; and on your birthday, ask Ruchika to bake you a cake with a cookie base and ganache  frosting sprinkled with butterscotch bits.

La Folie: You could well mistake La Folie’s bonbons for a tray of emeralds and sapphires at a jeweler’s store. Truth is, they’re crafted from something just as precious – the finest Grand Cru chocolate sourced from plantations around the world. Combine this with owner-chef Sanjana’s French savoir-faire, and you’ve got yourself a bounty of bonbons, but also the most sophisticated bakes and confections in town, including French entremets, chocolate bars, coated nuts, truffles and artisanal sourdough bread. Best gift hampers ever!
