For those of you who aren’t familiar with Keep It Sweet Desserts, it’s an online bakery specializing in artisanal mail-order desserts that have a quality and taste that always exceed expectations.  Their products range from classic favorites like Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies to modern day twists like buttercream filled cookie sandwiches. They also offer a Cookie of the Month Club (um…hello, perfect gift!), gift baskets, seasonal gift options, special event catering (in the New York tri-state area), favors and corporate gifts.

From Lauren, owner of Keep It Sweet Desserts:
“I started the Company last spring and it has definitely been a roller coaster!  I’ve catered events for Anthropologie, filmed a TV show pilot, brought desserts onto the set of Royal Pains (we love that show!).  Even Will Forte is now a fan!  There are definitely ups and downs in running my own business but I wouldn’t trade my current situation for my old finance career for a minute.”

Lauren was nice enough to send me some of her desserts to sample before holding a giveaway for all of you.
For our first taste of Keep It Sweet Desserts, we tried the Chocolate Chunk Ginger Cookies, Fudgy Caramel Pecan Brownies, and the Peppermint Mocha Cookies. I would say that the brownies were my favorite….but I’m a sucker for anything mint + chocolate, and those peppermint mocha cookies were some of the best I’ve ever had.

Lucky for one of you, Lauren would like to offer a dozen sweets of the winner’s choice to you or for you to use as a gift for someone else.
