Milk Bar's Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookies

I really like Milk Bar... but I don't live or work in the city anymore so I haven't had anything from there in years. Cut to this weekend... I'm shopping at Target and I see a display of Milk Bar cookie mixes!

I have a thing for fun unique baking kits... I have tried a Crumbs cupcake kit, a Fatty Sundays do-it-yourself pretzel kit, and even a cake pop kit from Sweet Lauren's

I purchased the Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookie Mix and I was surprised at how well they turned out! They actually tasted like the cookies I used to get at Milk Bar!
 Toasting the cornflakes

They are loaded with butter so you get that great browned butter flavor, then the crispy cornflakes give you a crunch and the marshmallow gives the cookies a great chewiness. 

Bold statement alert... I think this is my favorite kit so far!

Now if I could only get Milk Bar's cereal milk at Target...

New Grape Taste Test

I was feeling like I was the only person who hadn't tried the new Cotton Candy grapes... I couldn't find them anywhere. A friend would tell me they just found them at Whole Foods... but then I would show up and by the time I got there they were sold out.

I was finally able to find them at Fresh Direct! My husband and I decided we wanted to try the other new grapes as well, so we ordered 3 kinds and had a taste test this weekend.

I love cotton candy... but was disappointed by the Cotton Candy grapes. While they did have a strong cotton candy smell... both myself and my husband didn't think they tasted like cotton candy. The Cotton Candy grapes weren't crisp and they had a funny aftertaste. 

The Flavor Promise grapes were very good and my husband liked them the best out of the 3 we tried. They were very sweet & crisp.

My favorite were the Moon Drop Grapes! They were sweet and the shape was very cool.Moon Drop grapes are longer than regular grapes. I think they would be a great addition to a cheese platter.
