The latest showstopper at the fair is Cookie Dough Spaghetti. This unusual creation from vendor Dipped in Chocolate is a fun take on cookie dough in the shape of spaghetti.
Cookie Dough Spaghetti is created by putting a scoop of cookie dough through a hand-pressed pasta maker. The cookie dough noodles are then placed on a red gingham plate to give it a homey feel. The noodles are covered in a "spaghetti sauce" made from mixing Ghirardelli white chocolate sauce with red food dye, and the finishing touch is a Ferrero Rocher hazlenut chocolate that resembles a meatball.
The Des Moines Register describes the dish well by saying, "If Cookie Monster worked as a chef at Olive Garden, this is the fun fair food he would make that people would lineup to try."
The tasty plate costs $6 and is available at the Dipped in Chocolate stand at the Iowa State Fair, which runs from August 9 to August 19 in Des Moines, Iowa.
