The Milk & Cookie Dessert Flight Every Holiday Party Needs
It’s hard to find a holiday party that doesn’t include wine and cheese. But, how about cookies and milk? Now, that’s more our style.
And that’s why we've created a milk and cookie flight, pairing each cookie in the Baking It Real Holiday Baking Kit Collection with four flavors of milk.
At Baking It Real, we’re all about keeping things simple. The simplicity of this cookie flight starts with our Holiday Baking Kit Collection, which contains pre-measured ingredients and easy-to-follow recipe cards to make four classic holiday cookies. After you’ve made the cookies, this milk and cookie flight can be prepared in just minutes. Because, let’s be honest, when it comes to the holidays, every minute counts.
Let’s take a look each cookie and milk pairing so that you can get baking – and entertaining.
Chocolate Crinkles Cookies & Strawberry Milk
Think chocolate-covered strawberry. But better. Like, way better.
This flavor combination pairs the fresh, sweet taste of strawberry milk with the rich, fudginess of our Chocolate Crinkles Cookies. Our favorite strawberry milk brands include Fairlife, Horizon and the ever-classic Nesquik. Or, if you’re feeling extra ambitious, you can create your own. We love Baking Mischief’s 4-ingredient strawberry milk recipe.
Sprinkle Cookies & Chocolate Milk
Chocolate + sprinkles. It’s as if your childhood dreams have come alive. Seriously.
To create this drool-worthy flight, use your favorite store-bought brand of chocolate milk, or make your own. The Spruce Eats has a fantastically simple homemade chocolate milk recipe using plain milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and powdered sugar.
Now, there’s a time and place for skinny lattes and nonfat caramel macchiatos. But, when it comes to chocolate milk, full fat means full flavor. If you’re going to the effort of making your own chocolate milk, go for whole milk.
Peanut Blossoms & White Milk
Peanut butter and chocolate. I mean, there’s a reason we all sneak the Reese's candy out of our kids’ Halloween baskets, right? (Wait, just us?)
This flight features white milk to let the already-rich peanut butter and chocolate kisses take the stage. Again, we recommend whole milk for a richer flavor profile.
Molasses Spice Cookies & Eggnog
If holiday spirit were a drink, it would be eggnog. And if eggnog went on a date, it would go with our Molasses Spice Cookies. (In fact, we’re pretty sure they’re engaged, but they haven’t announced yet, so let’s just keep that between us, okay?)
A rich, creamy, lightly spiced beverage, eggnog pairs perfectly with the nostalgic flavor of a warm molasses spice cookie. The best part about this paring is the options for variations, from nonalcoholic eggnog to rum eggnog, brandy eggnog and more.
