Mother's Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate it than showing your love for the best woman you know with something sweet? On her special day, mom should be able to enjoy one of the best things in life -- we're talking about sweet treats which best represent her. Treat mom to an extra special dessert or desserts (who's counting calories, anyway?) this Mother's Day!
Here's a list of sweet treats by Cookie Bar Manila that momma bear will surely love and you'll actually be surprised at how affordable they all are. Cookie Bar started as a home-based business known for its innovative takes on one of the world’s favorite desserts, and now owner-baker Ivorie Acosta decided it's time to open an actual space for new and return customers to visit at The Podium Mall.
Their Classic Cookie Cups (P100/6pcs; P200/12pcs; P370/24pcs) are cookies baked in cupcake tins with assorted toppings. You can choose from caramel, fudge, peanut butter, white chocolate, chocolate chips and marshmallows for classic toppings. And if you want to indulge in an extra sinful treat, they also have Premium Cookie Cups (P280/12pcs; P520/24pcs) which has toppings like Reese's, Twix, Kinder Bueno, Maltesers, Milky Way, Snickers and Ferrero. What they're best known for is their Cookie Shot Glass (P50/pc; P350/6pcs) -- a cookie shaped like a shot glass and has a thin layer of chocolate inside. It is available as a shot of milk (P100) or topped with ice cream (P120).
A visit to Cookie Bar Manila wouldn't be complete without cookies! The Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt (P100/without walnuts; P110/with walnuts; P170/a la mode; P470/6pcs) is 4 inches in diameter and indeed has a crisp sound when you break it, yet it is moist and chewy on the inside. Your mom will get addicted to the Green Tea White Chocolate Cookies (P150/3pcs; P295/6pcs) if she's not a fan of those extremely sweet desserts, as this one has a slightly bitter taste to it to balance off the sweetness of the white chocolate chips.
We would have hoarded their Stuffies (P120/3pcs; P250/6pcs; P470/12pcs) if we could! They're classic chocolate chip cookies stuffed with more of our favorites -- a chunk of brownie, Tim Tam, Nutella, Reese, Oreo and marshmallow.
Available only this month, the Caramel Pecan Dark Cookie Cake (P140/slice; P550/6-inch; P1,100/9-inch) is moist chocolate cake drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with crunchy walnuts for the perfect play on texture with every bite. A personal favorite is their Cookie Dough Cheesecake (P150) which has just the right amount of tartness and almost feels like creme brulee because of how smooth the consistency of the cheesecake is.
Cookie Bar Manila is located at 2/F The Podium Mall, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City. They're open from 11am to 10pm (Mondays to Thursdays) and from 10am to 10pm (Fridays to Sundays). Like them on Facebook and follow them on Instagram for more updates.
