Famed Snookies Cookies of Glendale – a favorite of the stars and Hollywood celebrities — is celebrating their THIRD ANNUAL MARDI GRAS BASH. Back again is their World Famous “King Cake Cookies,” and for the first time they’re adding Authentic New Orleans Sno-Balls!
The Mardi Gras tradition of King Cakes has been transformed into the most delicious cookie ever made! The authentic King Cake Cookie was the inspiration of Snookies General Manager and New Orleans native Brigitte Pailet. “I’ve always been a huge King Cake fan,” Pailet states. “Ever since I was a kid, the King Cake was my favorite Mardi Gras tradition.” With a bakery at her fingertips, she decided to roll up her sleeves and create a cookie version of the popular cake.
After several weeks of experimentation, Pailet discovered the perfect recipe. These individually handcrafted King Cake Cookies look exactly like miniature King Cakes with purple, green, and gold sprinkles – and the cookie dough has been painstakingly formulated to mirror the unique flavor of true New Orleans-style King Cakes. The delicious delicacies come individually wrapped in a beautiful gift basket with beads, doubloons, a Mardi Gras mask, and the history of King Cakes … and, to make it the perfect King Cake experience, every King Cake Cookie has its own baby!
This year, they’ve added the tradition of Sno-Balls – “New Orleans-style” shaved ice!
We have literally transported New Orleans’ Sno-Balls to L.A. with a special ice shaving machine and original homemade gourmet syrups!
Pailet says, “A New Orleans Sno-Ball is not a Snow Cone or an Italian ice — we’re talking gourmet delights!” It’s all in the right ice consistency, which allows the flavors to tantalize your tastebuds. There are a myriad of flavors from Hurricane (no alcohol) to Tiger’s Blood. And there are local favorites like Nectar or Chocolate topped with condensed milk and even King Cake (perfect with the King Cake Cookies!)
And since Snookies Cookies’ Mardi Gras Bash is two days before Valentine’s Day … it’s a perfect excuse to join the party and shop for your honey!
