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.
FoodStirs includes a detailed recipe card, complete with pictures and nutritional facts.
This month, FoodStirs sent 3 pans for the cookies, the cookie mix, frosting mix, and a small bag of sprinkles.
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.
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.
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.
