Cool Off with Hot Box Cookies: Ice Cream and Drinks to Beat the Heat

5 Ways to Cool Off


June is here–the month that introduces most of the country to the first taste of true summer heat. Our fresh-baked cookies keep our customers (and us) warm in the winter, and they’re equally enjoyable in the summer because they taste so darn good. Pro tip: Melt-in-your-mouth cookies are fashionable in every season. But we realize that in the hotter months, you’ll need a treat to cool you down. You’ll need something—gasp—more than cookies. That something is ice cream, and we’ve got it in spades. Actually, we’ve got it in pints, and in three flavors. Here’s our list of five ways to cool off with Hot Box Cookies in the upcoming sultry season.

Cookies & Ice Cream


Drop in for a couple of cookies and a pint of ice cream. We’re open late, so take a break from your hot midnight shenanigans and visit us for a dessert that warms your soul AND cools you off. Our pints come in Madagascar Vanilla, Gooey Butter Cake, and Salted Caramel. Try dipping your cookies in them for the matchless marriage of warmth and chill.

Ice Cream Sandwiches


Ice cream sandwiches? We’ve got ‘em. Choose any of our cookie flavors and whichever ice cream flavor you fancy for the perfect sammie pairing. Cold ice cream between two warm, fresh cookies will put your mouth in a state of nirvana. Smells like teen spirit to us.

Backyard BBQ


Having the ultimate backyard BBQ? Invite Hot Box to deliver our Dairy Deluxe catering package. Don’t depend on a friend or relative to come through with dessert. We’ll come through with 24 cookies, an ice cream pint, and 2 drinks. Now we’re sizzlin’.

Pool Party


A poolside Ice Cream Social would be the perfect way to initiate summer sweetness. This catering option includes 12 warm cookies and 6 individual servings of ice cream. Summer-warm cookies and winter-cold ice cream will put you in the mood to perform your best dive–or if you’re us, cannonball.

Drink Up


Not screamin’ for ice cream? We won’t hold it against you, but we still want you to cool off when indulging in fresh-baked euphoria! When you order our cookies, don’t forget to include a beverage, ‘cause we have a killer selection! Our new Fairlife milk comes in 2%, chocolate, and strawberry. We also proudly carry Coke products, so you can wash down those cookies with fizzy goodness. If you’re a true beverage babe, choose The Popular Pack for your catering order. We’ll hook you up with 24 warm cookies and 4 cold drinks so you beverage lovers can perfect your cookie-consuming experience with your favorite cool refreshment.

We’ve Got Big Luv for Admin Pros

Admin Pro Day!


Hot Box Cookies celebrates all kinds of professionals throughout the year by providing a product and service that suits everyone’s gifting needs. Even in the serious corporate world, who doesn’t love taking a little break with cookies? Whether you’re gifting a beautiful box of our warm cookies to a client, boss, or employee, you’ll be happy that you made Hot Box Cookies part of your professional life. Made with all-natural, premium, locally-sourced ingredients, gifting our cookies to someone says that you care about both deliciousness and quality.

While we encourage gifting our cookies to anyone and everyone, April 24th is dedicated to some very special people: Administrative Professionals. That’s right, National Admin Pro Day is on Wednesday. If you have an admin pro in your life, we’re giving you a chance to treat them right with free delivery on your order. They coordinate your calendars, your office supply orders, and your client relationships. So coordinate a delivery of fresh-baked cookies for that fresh employee. Use the code ADMINLUV and your cookies will come to your office with zero delivery fee. Here are some ways you can reward them with decadence for their excellence.

Order a dozen…


…of their favorite flavor from our menu. If you want to surprise them, you’ll have to be stealthy in how you ascertain what their favorite flavor is. Try slipping the question into casual conversation. Example: “I need you to cancel my Friday meeting, and tell me what your favorite Hot Box Cookies flavor is.” Very sly.

Order a cookie cake…


…with their name on it! Their eyes might tear up when they see “Thank you, Francis!” on a cookie cake you ordered to honor them!

Order a couple dozen


warm cookies for the office so everyone can celebrate, but make sure to order just one bottle of milk designated for that super duper Admin Pro. They’ll surely feel like Hot Box royalty with their refreshing bottle of milk, while the others in your group are forced to settle for water to wash down their delicious treats. At the end of the day, though, everyone wins on Admin Pro Day.

While you’re thinking about cookies in the workplace, why not sign up for a Corporate Gifting account? Do business deliciously! You might be amazed at the difference it makes.

Hot Box Cookies is for Lovers (and Haters)

We love Valentine’s Day because it’s the biggest day of the year to share all the love we hold inside our hearts, and inside our cookies. Call us hopeless romantics, but we think that our cookies have just the right ingredients to sweeten the mood between you and your special someone. Wait, you don’t have a special someone? You hate Valentine’s Day? That’s fine by us; we’re here to fill everyone’s day with love, no matter your relationship status. You can be a Valentine’s Day Hater, just love the fact that we’re offering free delivery on preorders and some of these other fun promos. Here are some ways you can get your fill of Hot Box this February 14th.

A Heart to Heart


This Valentine’s Day, we’re showing extra love to our much-adored flavor, Red Velvet. We’re crafting decadent, heart-shaped Red Velvet Cookie Cakes that are the perfect aesthetic and size to present to your special Valentine. This level of beautiful deliciousness comes from the bottom of our hearts.

Free Delivery on Preorders


Maybe you’re opting to eat dessert at home on Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart–so romantic! Just like planning ahead is important when it comes to bringing…supplies…it’s important when it comes to buying cookies. We want you to plan ahead by preordering your cookies between 2/7 and 2/13, with the Promo code BEMINE9. Your great planning skills will earn you free delivery on the big day, and maybe more. Spontaneity is romantic–but planning can be romantic, too.

Dessert Date


If you’re planning to dine out on Valentine’s Day, we hope you have dinner reservations. The good thing is, you won’t need reservations for dessert. After a romantic dinner, sweep your date off his or her feet by bringing them to Hot Box Cookies for some pheromone-releasing treats. You can try going Lady & the Tramp style with a cookie, but we have a feeling it will end up a bit messy.

A Gift Pack to Remember


If you’d rather stick with one of our deals, such as 6 cookies for $8, be sure to include some Red Velvets! They’re redder than the reddest rose, and much more satisfying to eat. If you’re feeling fancy, we’ll package your goodies with a red ribbon, and finish off the spectacle with a romantic balloon. This kind of gift would make a girl more excited than an engagement ring. Well, maybe not. But if an engagement does happen, remember, we cater weddings!
