PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A Phoenix-area high school girl is making a name for herself with her creative... and delicious... business.

Nehariika Kakkar is attending UCLA in the fall, so she created a business to help defray college costs. 

She has just launched The Cookie Shot Girl, a bakery which specializes in "cookie shots" (or cookies in the shape of shot glasses that are lined with chocolate) which can be filled with milk, ice cream, whipped cream, and other tasty fillings.

"I love baking and I have a passion for business," she said. "So I thought, why not over summer break, start something new?"

She says cookie shots transform your favorite childhood treat into an upscale dessert.

Nehariika says after she came across some shot glass molds, she was inspired to create a food trend, something unique that was not being done yet in Phoenix.

She says she received an unexpected amount of support from people who stopped by at the farmer's market, from a food blogger who believed in her, and from a local digital marketing company that offered to build her website.

"We just launched our website this morning to sell online," she said. (And we checked it out; the photos will make your mouth water!)

Popular flavors are chocolate chip, S'Mores, and brownie shots.

The cookie shot glasses start at $11.99 for a box of four.
