The August box was for a chocolate chip cookie cake. I needed greek yogurt, butter, and an egg on hand. I forgot to grab greek yogurt at the store, so you’ll see my substitution explanation below. 

FS4

FoodStirs includes a detailed recipe card, complete with pictures and nutritional facts.

FS5

This month, FoodStirs sent 3 pans for the cookies, the cookie mix, frosting mix, and a small bag of sprinkles.

FS6

I mixed the cookie mix with 6 tablespoons of butter and an egg, and mixed until just combined. Then I distributed the cookie dough between the three pans and refrigerated it for the 30 minutes recommended by FoodStirs.

FS7

I baked it for about 25 minutes instead of the 27-30 minutes recommended, because my oven can sometimes run hot. You can see that they are still a bit browned; if I would have paid attention to them closer, I probably would have pulled them out at about 23 minutes.

FS8

Here’s the finished product. I mixed the frosting mix with butter and a bit of heavy cream instead of the greek yogurt recommended. I was out of greek yogurt and was already into the project by the time I realized it. The heavy cream worked perfectly, and I liked the taste quite a bit better actually. Of course, this does affect the nutrition facts!

Verdict: This project took maybe 10 minutes of active time. The rest is resting, baking, and cooling. It was a pretty simple project, and I enjoyed the flavor of the cookie and frosting. I had a massive amount of sprinkles left over, but I’ll not complain about that; that’s always a good thing. 

As far as this subscription being worth the $19.99? I’m not entirely certain. It would be a fun box to get and bake with children – it’s like the adult version of the Easy Bake Oven.

Have you tried FoodStirs yet?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. “I liked the taste quite a bit better actually” – compared to what? I am confused by this line in the review.

    • I think “better” than the Greek yogurt frosting they put on everything..,

      • Ohhh THANKS!

  2. The first sentence is a little misleading, when it says they “ship baking mixes kits” – and it’s only one mix per box.

    The price is completely absurd.

    Apart from the box, I don’t think a reviewer should substitute ingredients when reviewing a food that is FORMULATED for a particular ingredient. It’s not fair to the readers or the company.

    • Is this the sub that puts Greek yogurt in everything??? Ugh, it’s a turn off for me and I like hearing it tasted good with other ingredients you had.

    • I think substitute ingredients are fine. Other subscribers may like the inspiration. People can cook and bake things in many different ways that are suited for different taste pallets.
