Our Story

Dunk Cookies began life because I am greedy.

Greedy for dessert. Anything, really, as long as it’s not covered in cream (strange I know). If I was pushed to name a favourite dessert, I’m always satisfied by two very simple indulgences. One, freshly baked cookies; I like them crispy and chewy. Second, dipping a spoon (or my finger) in chocolate spread.

For years – decades even – I made the foolish mistake of indulging in my two favourite pastimes separately. Yes, there were times where my baking experiments (such as cookies sandwiched in icing) got unwittingly close to utopia.

With no fanfare, the moment simply happened. I slathered a cookie with hazelnut spread and the idea was born: to dunk buttery light, freshly baked cookies – crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside – into spreadable dips tasting of everyone’s favourite desserts.

So, Dunk Cookies was dreamt up so I (and you!) can have the best of both worlds. And if you’ve never dunked a cookie then trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

I’m Annabelle by the way – founder, baker and eater – and the last 3 years have been such a journey. From making our very first order to becoming an award winning business, and recently opening our first shop in Whitstable, nothing has been more exciting or rewarding than when our customers share their experiences with us. You regularly tell us Dunk Cookies are best cookies you’ve ever tasted, and we know you’re not exaggerating because you come back again and again. And for that we want to say a humongous THANK YOU!

From small cookies, big dreams grow.
