Monster Cookies

10, Dr. E.A. Cooray Mawatha, Colombo 6


Monster Cookies is a home baker that does a variety of cookies and since of late, brownies as well. We tried out some of their more interesting choices and we were all smiles.



We've reviewed Monster Cookies once before. We loved it then and to say we don't love it now would be a humongous lie. Monster Cookies is an unassuming home baker located at Colombo 6 who do a host of delicious sweets for parties and all types of occasions.

As you may already know, we folks of YAMU don't need special occasions to indulge in the sweet. Which is why we got ourselves a tray of brownies, a lot of mini cupcakes and a jar of mini cookies. Before you jump on the very unjolly diabeetus wagon - let us say, these sweets are not so very sweet and ideal for your kiddy parties and also any celebration.

The Cookies

Nothing much has changed from our previous update and by this we mean -  we loved them. We must make mention of the presentation too. Monster Cookies is not only candy for your tastebuds, but, it is also candy for your eyes. The cookies came in a tiny jar wrapped in ribbon with the cookies in adorable pastel pinks, hot pinks, yellows and greens. These are the pictures that Instagrammers would spend countless hours filling their feed with. 

Oh and the cookies... straight outta the jar... so soft and fluffy to the bite. They were sugar cookies with royal icing and not too sweet so that you could easily accompany your tea with a couple of these tiny wonders. Our mini jar of cookies was priced at Rs. 450.

The Brownies

Here too the sweetness wasn't over the top. It is sweet and fudgy on top and the bottom layer is almost like dark chocolate. Again very fudgy and gooey to the bite with almost a dark chocolate flavour. I would say that it's ideal with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. If I had my way, I would have had the whole tray on my own - but we are the sharing kind. A tray of 16 pieces was priced 1t Rs. 1300 and that's a pretty good deal considering how good they are.

The Mini Cupcakes

We got 10 mini cupcakes at Rs. 65 each. We had to restrain ourselves from gobbling them in one go... they were oh.. so... good and so very fluffy. The cupcakes were topped off with not-so-sweet butter frosting. If they sold just the icing separately, I'd happily purchase it every day. Yes, I have a serious penchant for the sweet. The cake base itself was not as sweet. The icing was soft as well and because it was not too sweet, it was the correct proportion to the cupcake.

Our bill came to a total of Rs. 2400. To place an order, simply call them up or inbox them on their FB page

Conclusion

Monster Cookies does not disappoint. From our last review to our present, their standard has not wavered. We are still mighty pleased with Monster Cookies. But of course don't take our word for it, the proof of the pudding is in the eating after all.

Perfect for birthdays, picnics or whenever you fancy a sweet treat, they're sure to be a crowd-pleaser.


TIP

They also do special orders like 7.5'' cookies which is pretty cool. Also don't forget to place the order a day in advance.
