Memorial Day. A day of remembrance, pride and support for our troops both old and new. It is a day for United States families to take a breath from work to enjoy and appreciate their families and friends. This day also tends to be the first BBQ of the season for people all over the country. Celebrating our troops, the upcoming summer and being surrounded by loved ones….what could be better?!
While we can’t help you much when it comes to the barbecuing side of things, we can absolutely help when it comes to our specialty, DESSERT! If you’re looking to wow your guests, we promise you cannot go wrong with Cravory Cookies. Here are a few of our favorite ways to incorporate the cookies into a BBQ:
Duh! Cookie bars have been increasing in popularity and it’s no surprise why. From easy setup (all you need are fun plates and platters!) to a variety of flavors, your guests will surely go home full and happy. We usually recommend offering 3-6 different flavors to give your guests enough variety. Throwing in a savory cookie, like our Rosemary Balsamic Cookie, is a wonderful way to please your more adventurous friends and family or those who prefer something less sweet.
When setting up your cookie bar, make to sure have a variety of plates and platters. Different sized plates add variety to the look and adding in height (cake stands, platters on risers) gives your cookie bar a professional and complete look. Adding a few succulents, flowers and American flags will pull the entire look together. Make sure you don’t forget the finishing touch of flavor signs! A fun way to display the cookie flavors is on small chalkboard easels...the best part? You can reuse them time and time again!
MAKE YOUR OWN ICE CREAM SANDWICH BAR
Yep, it’s exactly like it sounds -- cookies, ice cream, happy bellies. This dessert idea is easier than you would imagine; all you need are cookies, ice cream and a cooler! Display your cookies on plates and platters (re: cookie bar) and have a cooler full of ice with a few ice cream options inside. Once the guests have their cookie selections, they will put a scoop of ice cream on one cookie, put the other cookie on top, squish the creation down and ta-da you have an ice cream sandwich! This is an easy way to add a fun and creative aspect to your backyard BBQ that will please adults and children alike!
