ConsciousCakes Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway

I've never been one to turn down a cookie. If you ever offer me a cookie and I say no, then you know I'm probably dying.  There is no discrimination against my love for cookies, but they are truly all my favorites.  Chocolate, sugar, peanut butter, or even a snickerdoodle make my taste buds sing in delight.  There is always room in my heart for more cookie love.  Have you thought about opening up your heart to accept more cookies today?



ConsciousCakes is an Etsy shop that sells an assortment of vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free treats. They offer cupcakes in a jar in such mouth-watering flavors as vanilla, peanut butter cup, and red velvet.  You can't forget about chocolate or carrot either! All of the cupcakes in a jar come with a coordinating frosting that will make your stomach smile.  There are some cookies offered, with the most unique flavor being spiced hot chocolate cookies.  If you're into sweets, there is something most definitely for you.  Why not consider serving yummies from ConsciousCakes at your holiday office party, baby shower, or even Christmas party? Anytime is also a perfect time to enjoy their treats.

I was lucky enough to be able to try the spiced hot chocolate cookies.  This was such a unique flavor that I had never previously tried, but it sounded too good to pass up.  I knew that the spiced hot chocolate cookies would have to have a date with my stomach.  It was mandatory!

Come here cookies.  Don't hide from me, I just want to hug you with my teeth.

The cookies were shipped to me extremely fast.  In just a few days, a mason jar containing six spiced hot chocolate cookies was now sitting on my kitchen counter.  The color of the cookies looked just like hot chocolate.  I took a bite of them and I was transported on a rocket ship straight to Planet Cookie.  The treat was light and fluffy and melt in your mouth delicious.  The chocolate flavor was not over the top at all, but extremely subtle.  Despite being vegan and gluten free, there was still a lot of taste and flavor.

Only when you finish the cookie do you taste the hidden spice at the end.  There was a light hint of cayenne pepper that blankets your mouth.  It was not extremely spicy, but just the right amount to perk up the flavor of the chocolate.  I've never experienced a cookie like this and it was a new cookie experience for me, one that I really enjoyed.  Who would have thought that cayenne pepper pairs well with chocolate? If I'm ever in a bakery and I see a spiced chocolate treat, you can bet I'll be ordering it.  Pair these cookies with a nice cup of coffee or tea and you've got yourself the perfect afternoon snack.  If you're feeling adventurous, even a cup of hot chocolate with a tiny amount of cayenne pepper too.  

These cookies would be a wonderful treat during the winter.  Can't you just imagine it now? Cozying up to the roaring fire under a blanket and enjoying these yummies.  It would certainly be a great night!
