Whether you’re hosting friends or family at your own home or are in charge of which desserts to bring to a party, you don’t want to disappoint. After all, desserts are one of the biggest stars of the culinary show, so providing a tempting treat that everyone loves is key to a sweet celebration! 

While many of us would love to make our own unique creation to bring to the party, how often do time commitments and conflicting priorities come into play, making it challenging (if not impossible) to get everything prepared for your gathering, much less spending hours shopping for ingredients and putting it all together? And that’s on top of putting the finishing touches on the other aspects of your celebration. (Don’t forget, you still need plenty of time to get ready for the party!)

Fortunately, there’s no reason to get stressed out about what desserts to bring to a party. 

Weighing the Store-Bought Options

If you’re in a time crunch, it’s tempting to save time and money and just swing by the grocery store and grab whatever is convenient. 

But let’s face it: No one has ever been wowed by a dry grocery store cake, a box of store-bought cookies, or even a boxed cake or cupcakes with premade icing. Even if they taste okay, they certainly won’t leave a lasting impression or show how much you care about your guests (if you’re the host) or your host (if you’re a guest). 

That doesn’t, however, mean you’re left with only your own cooking skills as an option (and scrambling to find time to purchase all the correct ingredients and still have time to bake). You can still impress your fellow party-goers with amazing treats that will have them asking where in the world you found them!

Muffins and cupcakes were popular options that turned up at a lot of parties in the recent past. Yet too many catered cupcakes turn out to be so dry or have so many layers of sugary frosting you can’t even tell what flavor they’re supposed to be. This has left an opening for new desserts to take over the party scene.

The Growing Cookie Trend

A new growing party dessert trend is cookies. The humble cookie is popular with people young and old. In fact, Americans consume over 2 billion cookies per year—that averages out to about 300 cookies per person per year. Just over 95% of U.S. households consume cookies, so if you serve cookies, you know you’ll be in good company. (FYI, while 35% of cookie eaters like their cookies crunchy, 65% prefer a chewy cookie.) 

Today, you can delight every party guest with a dessert they’re bound to love. And, you can easily cater to each person’s preference. Within minutes, you can purchase a half dozen, a dozen, or enough for every person at the party. Some of the most popular flavors include: 

  • Chocolate Chip (Original or Vegan)
  • Birthday Cake
  • Snickerdoodle (Original or Vegan)
  • Peanut Butter
  • S’mores
  • Walnut Chocolate Chip
  • Butter Pecan
  • Oatmeal Raisin

Or ask about seasonal gourmet specials (like banana moon pie or red velvet) to fit perfectly into your themed party. 

No matter which flavor(s) you choose, at Munster Cravings, we aim to serve you the best cookies you’ve ever had. All of our cookies are made from scratch and are made fresh to order. So, you only get the freshest cookies made. 

Get ready because our cookies are Ah freakin Mazing!!! And we’re constantly introducing new flavors to keep your mouth watering and to stand out at any party.
