4 of our favorite Cookie Brittle food pairings

Whether it’s peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and almonds or peaches and cream, some foods just seem to be made for each other. Food pairing is the art of taking two foods and combining them to create an out-of-this-world flavor combination — which is one of the things we had in mind when we created our line of deliciously crunchy Cookie Brittle. While all of our Cookie Brittle varieties are tasty on their own, they’re particularly delightful when paired up with other foods.

Here’s a quick look at some Cookie Brittle pairings we think you’ll want to try ASAP.

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you like ice cream and the crunchy goodness of cookies — and who doesn’t? — you’ll want to whip up an ice cream sandwich made of Cocoa Cookie Brittle and vanilla, chocolate fudge or butter pecan ice cream. Simply take the carton of ice cream out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften. Then, take a huge scoop of ice cream and squeeze it between two pieces of Cocoa Cookie Brittle for an instant treat your whole family will enjoy.

If your taste is geared more to all things fruity, you’ll appreciate the sweet and refreshing flavor pairing of zesty Lemon Cookie Brittle with strawberry, blueberry or cherry ice cream.

Coffee Companion

We’re pretty sure that the first person to ever brew up coffee finished off a cup and said, “You know what would go good with this? Cookies!” It’s that delightfully bitter aftertaste in a well-brewed cup of coffee that makes us gravitate to something sweet and crunchy, like our naturally flavored Almond Cookie Brittle and our scratch-baked Cocoa Cookie Brittle, both of which make for remarkable coffee companions as they’re perfect for nibbling between sips or full-on dunking.

Top It Off 

The next time you toss a couple of scoops of ice cream and a splash of milk into your blender to whip up a milkshake, be sure to crumble up a handful of Cocoa Cookie Brittle so you can top off your cold and creamy confection with a layer of sweet, delicious cookie goodness. Drizzle on a healthy serving of chocolate syrup as well — everyone needs to splurge now and then!

Our Lemon Cookie Brittle also makes a splendidly crunchy topping for cheesecake, while our Cinnamon Cookie Brittle tops off your favorite apple crisp recipe with style.

Tea Time Treat

Whether you do it in the morning, afternoon or evening, it’s always a pleasure to pause and sit down with a cup of tea to gather your thoughts. Our buttery Mint Cookie Brittle pairs perfectly with a herbal mint, hibiscus or chamomile tea, while our Almond Cookie Brittle balances the astringency of a cup of English Breakfast, the bitterness of Earl Grey or the smokey aftertaste of a freshly brewed cup of oolong green tea. Lemon Cookie Brittle pairs especially well with fruity raspberry, sweet tulsi and tart passionate fruit tea, and Cinnamon Cookie Brittle complements the flavors of a cardamon tea or vanilla tea.

Happy pairing!
