Inside The Kookie Jar

Delicious cookie wedding favors from Recycled Bride’s dear friends Maria & Evan

If you’re a regular on the RB blog, you’ll remember Maria and Evan, the amazing young couple who triumphed over tragedy when Evan was in a terrible car accident before their wedding. Maria was selling her Maggie Sottero wedding dress to help pay Evan’s medical bills. <!–more–>

Since that post, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Maria and Evan, and seeing how resourceful and inspiring they really are. And today, I’m so proud to introduce you all to Maria’s new business, The Kookie Jar! So many of you were touched by Maria and Evan’s story, and wrote in asking how you could help them pay off their staggering debt from the accident. By spreading the word about The Kookie Jar, you can be a part of getting Maria’s business off the ground!


Maria is a talented baker, and when she made these cookies as wedding favors for her own big day, they were a huge hit with friends and family. In fact, several guests reported cases of “Kookie theft” when others couldn’t resist eating every last cookie in sight! So Maria decided to start packaging and selling them as favors for weddings, bridal and baby showers, and thank-you gifts. And lucky, lucky us…she sent along some delicious samples this weekend!


The cookies came beautifully packaged, and even included a coupon! Maria is one resourceful little firecracker. It takes most people a loooooong time to set up a business, and she’s already raring to go with beautifully printed coupons and a website. She’s even taken and filled a bunch of orders in the last few weeks!


Forgive my awful photography, and the haphazard green plate cookie arrangement. The photos don’t do these pretty confections justice. But we were too eager to eat them to do a proper job of lighting ‘em for pics!


That’s Recycled Robert, getting ready to enjoy his SEVENTH cookie! This smile says, “Yum, cookies…uh-oh, here comes sugar coma.” It’s true — we both went a little Kookie-crazy! Maria’s creations contain a magical (and addictive!) combination of sweet, creamy icing, rich chocolate topping, and crunchy, satisfying wafers inside. They are utterly irresistable, and we made little piggies of ourselves testing out the different combinations of white, milk, and dark chocolate — yum! As wedding favors go, they’re the sweetest we’ve ever tasted.

Maria can package your cookies to match your wedding’s theme and color scheme. She’s wonderfully creative and a total joy to work with. If you’re interested in placing an order, or just want to know more about The Kookie Jar, e-mail Maria directly at:

thekookiegal {at} gmail {dot} com.

(But don’t say we didn’t warn you about how addictive they are, and make sure to order extras to avoid any Kookie-inspired rioting at your reception.)
