You’ll be happy to be assimilated by the Borg when they arrive in this gingerbread cube. It’s made by using a Borg cube cookie cutter to create all six sides and then gluing them with icing. It makes for a cute ornament or you can use it as a little container to hold more holiday treats.

Holy colossal cookie container, Batman!

At long last, you will finally be able to order Girl Scout cookies online! The Girl Scout Council has long been pondering whether this would be a good move given safety and privacy concerns, but they now feel confident about letting girls take the plunge. Girls and their troops will be able to opt in individually, choosing either traditional or digital sales.
This isn’t supposed to replace the traditional face-to-face sales, but supplement those sales. They also see it as an opportunity for girls to learn by allowing them to build their own sites and even create videos to promote sales. All of this will be done while still keeping personal information private. Buyers will see only a first name unless they’ve been sent a personal invitation.

No, that’s not your standard Oreo. That’s a chocolate and stout sandwich cookie that was made by Redditor hensandchicas. Apparently, the recipe was adapted from this one, and switched things up by using “1 tbsp of molasses and the rest using stout to measure 1/3 cup”, using coarse sugar instead of granulated sugar and “winging” the filling with “1 cup softened unsalted butter, pinch of kosher salt, 1-2 cups powdered sugar, 2-3 tbsp stout until it tasted good.”
Gil Scout cookies are one of the most addictive substances on Earth, and now they’ve been turned into delicious shots. Trefoils, Samoas, Dosisdos, and Thin Mints have all gotten boozy in these recipes that sound pretty darn good. It’s still months before any of us will get our cookies, so this ought to make the time pass a little more quickly.

Thanks to the destruction of the second Death Star, there is an abundance of Stormtrooper helmets floating around the galaxy. Thankfully, they’ve been repurposed as cookie jars. Don’t worry. The heads have been scooped out and everything was sanitized.
It also pairs wonderfully with this Darth Vader Cookie Jar.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Ant Roman at Nerdache Cakes.
One of the reasons is because she has such interesting ideas. I mean, how many people would think to make a cookie and fondant version of Funko’s POP! Chucky complete with blood splatter?
I kind of hope there’s a Bride of Chucky follow up soon.
