    An Ode to Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Chocolate chips. The tiny morsels of chocolate we all love to love! You find them in your pancakes, muffins, brownies and most of all, your cookies! It’s hard to imagine a time without chocolate chips cookies, but surprisingly enough, it wasn’t too long ago this delicious creation didn’t exist.

    Legend tells us Ruth Wakefield, the owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, was preparing a batch of her favorite cookies, Butter Drop Do, for her arriving inn guests and discovered she was out of baker’s chocolate. Not wanting to waste the cookie dough she had already mixed together, Ruth chopped up pieces of a Nestle chocolate bar and added the chocolate to her dough. When she pulled the cookies out of the oven, much to her surprise, the chocolate had not melted like her baker’s chocolate, it simply softened in the oven and continued to hold it’s shape. After the first bite, she knew she was on to something. Ruth named these creations “Toll House Crunch Cookies,” and they’re popularity quickly rose around the nation.

    The rising popularity of Ruth’s cookies simultaneously increased the popularity of the Nestle chocolate bars. Nestle caught wind of Ruth’s delectable creation and with the most enviable deal in history, Ruth joined forces with the chocolate powerhouse: Nestle printed the Toll House Cookie recipe on all of it’s packaging and in return, Ruth was given a lifetime supply of Nestle chocolate. Yes, please.

    Nestle began selling their chocolate bars with a chopping tool included, to encourage their customers to make this popular dessert. In 1941, for the first time ever, they began selling chocolate in the form of morsels (chips) and they never looked back. Nowadays you can find chocolate chips just about anywhere and not only in the original semi-sweet variety. These sweet chips are now available in milk chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter and many more flavors!

    Thank you Ruth and thank you chocolate chips for giving us the classic, delicious and timeless cookie we all love so much!

    Cookie Spotlight: Coconut Cream Pie

    Things are finally heating up after a chilly winter and spring, and nothing screams warmer weather than the flavor of coconut! This tropical flavor is one we love to play around with here at Cravory Cookies; one of our first and most popular flavors is the Almond Joyous cookie, which is the perfect cookie compliment to the fan favorite candy bar. This month we decided to bring coconut into the mix with our new Coconut Cream Pie cookie. This cookie is a Cravory twist on the classic dessert. We enhance the coconut flavors with pecans, white chocolate chips and best of all, a toasted marshmallow topping!

    We start this delicious creation with our coconut dough. This dough is soft, flavorful and the perfect “crust” for this take on an old favorite. With the coconut flavor set, it was time to add some flare to this Coconut Cream Pie cookie! We hand chop pecans and mix them into the dough to give the cookie the perfect amount of crunch and nutty flavor. Next come the white chocolate chips, which add the right amount of creamy sweetness. The final step in creating the Coconut Cream Pie cookie is sprinkling mini marshmallows on stop and toasting them by hand. Our chefs use a culinary blowtorch to give the marshmallow the perfect shade of toasted brown! From the flavor right down to the texture, the Coconut Cream Pie is already shaping up to be one of the most popular May cookies of the month.

    If you’re ready to start summer a bit early, make sure you grab yourself a Coconut Cream Pie cookie before it disappears on June 1st!

    Teacher Appreciation Week

    Since 1984, one week during the month of May has been dedicated towards teachers as National Teacher Appreciation week. The National PTA began this tradition as a way to honor the men and women who dedicate their lives to educating the minds of our children. The theme for this year’s National Teacher Appreciation week is “Teachers Deliver” and we couldn’t agree more!

    We can’t help but think the best way to honor the “Teachers Deliver” theme is to make sure teachers are delivered COOKIES! Apples may have run the show for decades, but cookies are moving in as the sweetest gift to give the teacher in your life. We guarantee dropping off a dozen cookies as a thank you, is never a bad idea. Whether you are local in San Diego and able to pop into one of our two storefront locations or you want to order online and have them delivered directly to the school, Cravory Cookies has you covered. If you’re looking for the most coveted “thank you”, give them the gift that keeps on giving -- our Cookies of the Month Subscription! Select an ongoing, 3, 6 or 12 month option and the recipient will receive our brand new Cookies of the Month delivered right to their door.

    Teachers deliver, so why shouldn’t we! Celebrate the teacher in your life this May 8th-12th.

    A Cravory Cookie Wedding!

    When you work at a gourmet cookie company, while simultaneously planning your dream wedding, it’s no surprise the big day will be full of cookies! Our very own Marketing Director & Wedding Coordinator, Andrea, was married on April 14th, 2017 and you can rest assured there were cookies everywhere you looked.

    With it being a destination wedding for the majority of the guests, Andrea and Corey wanted to make sure everyone felt welcomed and right at home the moment they arrived in San Diego. As the guests checked into their hotels they were greeted with welcome bags full of goodies!

    Andrea and Corey filled the welcome bags with a pocket itinerary of weekend events created by Posh Paperie, Dirty Potato Chips and the two beers Andrea and Corey each drank on their first date. To round out the deliciousness already filling the welcome bag was a bag full of surprise, surprise -  Cravory Cookies! Andrea and Corey chose 4 of their favorite best selling favorite: Salted Caramel Cream, Ultimate Chocolate Chip, Lemon Bar and Almond Joyous. They used bakery bags to hold the cookies and atop of each cookie was a custom sticker welcoming the guests, while also identifying the cookie flavor.

    The cookies were an amazing beginning to a busy and fun-filled weekend and the wedding guests were immediately hooked! The cookies continued to pop up at every event throughout the long weekend. Displayed at the rehearsal dinner luau were the always popular Taro cookies, as well as our April flavor, Cherry Pina Colada. With a groom from Maui it was important hi Hawaiian friends and family gave their stamp of approval on the Taro cookie -- once we received the two thumbs up, we couldn’t have been prouder!

    The wedding day was a day full of love, excitement and dessert! The dessert crazed bride had the ultimate dessert station full of locally made donuts, homemade pop tarts, rice krispie treats and best of all, eight flavors of mini Cravory Cookies! With a mixture of best selling favorites, adventurous Rosemary Balsamic and a few of the exciting April flavors, the guests had an amazing selection of sweets to choose from.
