Leave it to the food world for inventive trends that make you wonder:  Why didn't someone think of that sooner?  The latest idea:  Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shots.

New York pasty chef Dominique Ansel is getting ready to roll out this new food invention at the SXSW in Austin, Texas.

So what is it?  Just like it sounds, it's a chocolate chip cookie that's shaped like a shot glass - baked - and then filled with milk.  You're supposed to drink the milk and then consume the cookie.

Dominique Ansel also made waves a while back with his cronut - a pasty that's a cross between a donut and a croissant.
