We love July! The sun is shining, there are tons of cookouts to go to, and most importantly: it’s National Ice Cream month. This summer, we’ve released our all new Ice Cream Cookie Collection, with flavors and designs reminiscent of all those childhood summers chasing down the ice cream truck or trying to finish your ice cream cone before it melts! This is one of our most favorite creations yet and we know you’ll love our new Ice Cream Cookie flavors as much as we do.

Indulge in these new flavors below:

Buttercream Frosted Strawberry Sugar Cookie: Inspired by the summer season strawberries, ripe for picking and enjoying during the long summer months. This sweet, soft and chewy sugar cookie is generously topped with a rich strawberry buttercream frosting. Just as delicious as our signature buttercream cookies, but with a NEW and refreshing combination perfect for summer!

Mint Chocolate Chip: Refreshing mint and decadent chocolate combined to form everyone’s favorite after dinner treat! Classic ice cream flavor as a buttercream frosted cookies—double chocolate cookies provide the soft base for the creamy cool mint buttercream.

Vanilla Malted: No shake or straws necessary to enjoy this favorite malted flavor! Chewy, rich and unique—this cookie has malted milk powder for richness and flavor.  Real vanilla and butter further enhance this delicious sugar cookie.

Loads of real bananas, along with crispy walnuts combine to make a soft moist cookie that is generously hand frosted with our fudge frosting.  We won’t stop you from putting a cherry on top of it!

Holiday Entertaining with Cheryl’s

November 29, 2011

Welcome back cookie & brownie fans!

The Holiday season has officially started! That means, buying presents, decorating your home, sending out greeting cards, and the always festive holiday party. While it’s the most wonderful time of year, it’s also the most stressful, so let Cheryl’s help take some of the work off your plate (well, put something better on them!)

Mrs. Beasleys chocolate frosting bundt cake Cheryls
On Wednesday, November 15, the whole Cheryl’s family worked together to be the shining star of our media Holiday party at our Los Angeles Mrs. Beasley’s location. Top tier media guests and influential bloggers such as Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rockin’ Mama, Romy Raves, Santa Monica Times, The Recessionista and more joined us for an evening of gourmet cookies, delectable cakes, brownies, and festive Holiday trends and tips provided by expert Rachel Hollis (“I Do Over”). And lucky you! We’re sharing some of them here.

A couple of great decorating tips for your Holiday party can be done easily and without breaking budget! Transform your space into a trendy holiday winter wonderland by repurposing things you already have. Hollis placed candied almonds within decorative champagne glasses and laid them out on the dessert table. She also repurposed the gift boxes featured within a Cheryl’s cookies holiday gift tower to create a festive tiered plated dessert tray, and used candle holders to place the Miss Grace famed bundt cakes, along with other dessert creations. These tips make for a fun, festive, and creative way to display all that your Holiday party has to offer (and we know your friends will be marveled by your ingenious skills).

Cheryls truffle cookie milk snowmen Another key feature of the event came from an entertaining trend quickly gaining momentum, especially around Holiday entertaining: having a festive dessert table for guests, and a designated kid’s dessert table. For the main dessert table, Hollis incorporated her festively fun Holiday entertaining ideas such as the repurposed champagne glasses, candle holders, and Cheryl’s cookie gift tower plates. For the children’s holiday dessert table, Hollis used desserts from Cheryl’s, Mrs. Beasley’s, and Miss Grace to create delicious elements for children (and adults!) to enjoy. She placed Cheryl’s mini brownies on popsicle sticks, created milk jars with snow man heads using Mrs. Beasley’s famous truffle cookies, and added a child’s touch of décor to Cheryl’s buttercream frosted snowflake cookies. It was certainly a fun and deliciously festive time for all!

No need to fret about all the Holiday entertaining duties you’ve given yourself this Holiday season. With Cheryl’s family of desserts, we make Holiday Entertaining a breeze. Try out some of our tips and tricks this Holiday for a fun time guaranteed!

Thankful Thursday Thanksgiving Thanksgiveaway

November 10, 2011

Welcome back Cheryl’s fans!

November is the time for crisp air, golden leaves, warm nights inside, and Thanksgiving! It’s the holiday that’s sandwiched in between Halloween and Christmas and usually gets forgotten about, though I can’t imagine why. Sure, you don’t get to dress up in costume and get free candy for a day, no one really writes songs about it, and you don’t get presents, but there is a lot more to Thanksgiving than we give it credit for.

Thanksgiving is the time to spend with family and friends and give thanks for all the wonderful things in your life and theirs. It’s an excuse to get everyone together over a good meal and catch up on what’s going on. Thanksgiving allows you to celebrate all that you have, without getting stuck on presents or what you did and didn’t receive this year. We should all appreciate Thanksgiving a bit more and treat the holiday as it should be treated, without letting it get lost between old pumpkins and giant display ornaments!

Personally, I love Thanksgiving. I love everything about Thanksgiving right down to the wishbone! I have such a large family with my parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, friends of family, all of their kids…you get the picture. We try to get together as much as we can so that we don’t lose touch, but holidays like Thanksgiving guarantee that we can all spend at least one day together, and impress each other with a chosen dish we’ve decided to make and bring to Thanksgiving dinner. One of my uncles and my grandma will usually take turns making the turkey, one of my aunts has the best mashed potatoes and potato salad I’ve ever tasted, and my mom is usually trying out new recipes and dishes each year so I’ll just have to wait and see what it is. This year, I’m sure I’ll get some praise when I bring over some Cheryl’s Thanksgiving cookies for my whole family to try…

All of this is why we’re happy to be doing our Thanksgiveaway Thanksgiving Sweepstakes for all of our fans! We just want to say thanks for sticking with us as fans, customers, and friends. We know that none of what we do would matter without all of your support. So join in the fun and let us show you how thankful we are that you are our fans! Our Thanksgiving Thanksgiveaway Sweepstakes will go on each Thankful Thursday leading up to Thanksgiving, where you could win our new Thanksgiving turkey cookie greeting.

Good friends, good fans, and good cookies: that’s a lot to be thankful for!

Happy Halloween!

October 24, 2011

Halloween was always my favorite time of year growing up.  It meant pumpkin picking, hay rides, halloween parties and best of all trick or treating!

I remember the fun would start in early October with the big decision of what to dress up as and the anticipation of walking door to door seemed like it lasted forever!  In addition to the exciting Halloween events, I remember the thrill of receiving a Cheryl’s butter cream frosted pumpkin cutout as a surprise from my mom.   We would sit together at the kitchen table and eat the cookies with a glass of milk.   I would always savor every bite saving the green stem as the last lick of butter cream.

Now with two kids of my own there is still that same level of excitement for the Halloween celebrations!    My daughter loves picking out her Halloween costumes and counts down on a calendar to the big night to ring the doorbell and yell trick or treat!   However, the best part of it all now, as a mom, is sharing with her the same butter cream pumpkin cutout cookie with a glass of milk that my mom shared with me.   That same delicious hand-frosted pumpkin cookie brings a smile to her face as it did to mine twenty five years ago!

Happy Halloween!
