Quick Freeze Holiday Cookies for Year-round Enjoyment 

It’s difficult to ignore the craving for Christmas cookies. And sometimes that craving hits once the yuletide day has come and gone. Who says you shouldn’t enjoy a chewy gingerbread cookie during the spring?!

While you’re baking up a storm this holiday season, think ahead and freeze some treats to satisfy your future sweet tooth. Using Penguin Dry Ice, you’ll be able to quick freeze your sweets in no time. It’s easier than you think! Just plate, zip, and freeze.

You can also share the love with those who are special to you no matter how far away they may be this year. Once you’ve packed your cooler, drop it in a box, and ship it off overnight to friends and family.

What You Need:

  • Your favorite festive cookies
  • Paper plate
  • Sealable bag
  • Mallet or hammer
  • Protective gloves
  • Dry ice
  • Tongs
  • Styrofoam cooler
  • Two pieces of cardboard or other packing materials

Step 1: Place your cookies on a paper plate, then inside a sealable bag.

Step 2: Carefully, with a mallet or hammer, break the dry ice into smaller pieces to fit inside the cooler.

SAFETY NOTE: To cube your dry ice from a block, wear protective gloves and eyewear, place the dry ice block in a towel, and carefully hit the block with a hammer or mallet. Do not chip at dry ice with a knife or other sharp object.

Step 3: Place one half of the dry ice in the bottom of your cooler.

Step 4: Place a piece of cardboard or other packing materials over the dry ice to avoid direct contact between the cookies and the dry ice.

Step 5: Place the sealed bags of cookies on top of the piece of cardboard or packing materials.

Step 6: Place another piece of cardboard or packing materials over the dry ice.

Step 7: Place the other half of the dry ice on top of the final piece of cardboard or packing materials. Close the lid. Add a festive bow!

Step 8: Cookies should stay frozen in original cooler for 24 hours. Transport to a freezer after quick freezing if being kept for long period of times.

BONUS STEP: Share the holiday cheer. This packaged cooler is ready to ship overnight to friends and family near and far.
