If you are not already familiar with Etsy, the online marketplace for all things handmade and vintage, these little treats just may entice you to explore the array of offerings. Through my own experience as a seller on Etsy I was introduced to the delectably displayed sweets of Whimsy & Spice, a Brooklyn based bakery run by the husband and wife team of Chef Mark Sopchak and Artist Jenna Park.
With a curiosity and sense of adventure, Mark plays with combining flavors and creating crave-able treats that will have you coming back for more. And Jenna designs gift-able packaging that would impress any recipient worthy of your generosity.
Let me recommend their Brooklyn Market Cookie, packed full of rich chocolate and white chocolate chips, dried cherries, macadamia nuts, oats and crunchy cocoa nibs–it’s the best combination of a chocolate chip and spiced oatmeal cookie I’ve had in a long time.
Want to taste and try but can’t decide, that’s okay, order the Whimsy and Spice Herbs and Spices Cookie Gift Box. It includes half packs of their Honey Lavender and Chocolate Orange Cardamom shortbread cookies, 1/2 dozen Rose & Black Pepper Thumbprints, a half pack of their new Cardamom marshmallows, and 1/2 dozen of their Coconut White Chocolate 5 Spice cookies.
