For a cookie to truly stand out, sometimes it needs to look even better than it tastes. That’s definitely the case for the chocolate chip cookie, which is arguably the world’s most famous variation. Chocolate chip cookies are a dime a dozen, so if you want yours to be noticed, here are a few simple tips.
If your cookies come from a plastic sleeve, you’re doing it wrong. Whether you’re treating yourself or someone you love, give a gift of gourmet cookies. They’re gift boxed and not shrink wrapped, meaning they’ve been freshly baked. These cookies haven’t been sitting on the shelf since the 90s. Simpler, classic packaging means the baker has more faith in the cookie—and a higher chance that whoever’s eating it will enjoy it.
There’s nothing better than getting a fresh plate of cookies than realizing someone put even more thought into it. Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas or Easter, a customized cookie just shows how much you care. Spell your dad’s name out on his favorite cookie, add designs for his favorite sports teams, or just let someone know you love them with different kinds of chocolate. Customizing your batch of chocolate chip cookies adds and element of surprise to an already thoughtful gift.
The only thing better than a chocolate chip cookie is a giant chocolate chip cookie. Go one step further than the quality packaging and the customization to really give a special treat. Instead of a dozen small cookies, try the cookie cake—a gift that you’d be surprised a lot of people haven’t heard of. Cookie cakes can be customized just like regular cakes, and are a perfect way for cookie lovers to celebrate a special occasion.
