CHELSEA — A British bakery that sells “world-famous” cookies made with chocolate chunks instead of chips is opening its second U.S. outpost in the neighborhood.

Ben’s Cookies, which also has a shop near Union Square, will open its doors at 345 Seventh Ave., between West 29th and West 30th streets, the week of Sept. 18, the bakery announced.

The sweets shop has locations throughout England, as well as in Tokyo, Seoul and Abu Dhabi

Cookies in flavors including milk chocolate and peanut butter chunk, oatmeal raisin and white chocolate macadamia chunk, and dark chocolate and walnut chunk will sell $3 each, a spokeswoman said.

The chain also serves ice cream cookie sandwiches.

The bakery started as a stall at a historic market in Oxford, England, in the 1980s, according to its website.

Along with its cookies, it’s known for its logo designed by British artist Quentin Blake, who illustrated author Roald Dahl’s children’s books.
