    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.
