Pumpkin Spice Toffee Cookie Recipe & DIY Packaging

Yesterday was super fun for me because I got enlisted by friend Danelle to help pretty up the cookies she baked for a fundraiser at her work. There’s really nothing I love more than to craft, eat cookie dough, and drink wine, which is exactly what we did!

I snapped some pictures to show exactly how we made these packages so pretty, and also to share what is probably the easiest cookie recipe on the planet (and it’s also delicious!). Also, if you haven’t tried the Chocolate Shop wine that is shown in the picture below, you need to do yourself a favor and go buy it! You can thank me later! 🙂

Pumpkin Spice Toffee Cookie Recipe:

1 Box Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix

1 12oz Can Pumpkin Puree

3/4 Cup Toffee Nuggets

Mix all 3 ingredients together in a bowl.

Batter complete!! (Told you! Easiest cookies ever!)

Bake at 400 for 10-14 minutes (depending on the size of your cookies).

I was seriously mind blown at how easy these cookies were. All of the baking powder, flour, and stuff that is always annoying to measure are in the cake mix! So genius.

So, once we had the cookies out of the oven and cooled, we started on the packaging.

I brought over some brown kraft bags, bakers twine, tags, stickers, and a “baked with love by” stamp.

We started by stamping the back of the bags and having Danelle sign her name.

Next, we wrapped 2 cookies in saran wrap and tied them up with gold bakers twine. I recommend doing this with baked goods so the oils and moisture don’t penetrate through the bag and ruin your pretty packaging.

Lastly, we sealed the bags with 3″ stickers, stuck a price sticker on the tag, and tied it on with orange & black bakers twine. Perfect considering the bake sale is on Halloween!

I don’t know about you, but I’d certainly pay $2 for these babies! 🙂 Especially when it’s going to a good cause.
