I’m looking for good cookie/treats recipes to be able to send to my husband in Iraq. PLEASE HELP!?

Published by at 4:04 am under Deserts

My husband and tons of our friends are overseas in Iraq and I’d like to send them some homemade cookies and treats. I need some “desert proof/safe” recipes. Please nothing that can melt or go bad easily like chocolate. Also, need to know how to pack them so they can arrive fresh! Thanks a million!


My son was overseas and I sent many different types of cookies. You just have to make sure they are not soft or crumbly cookies. I would send snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, sugar, chocolate filled snowballs…..etc. (You can get these recipes on line). For the most part, they arrived in okay condition. The chex mix idea is a great idea. I did not think of that and I am sure they would have loved that! As far as packing goes, I would just make sure everything was packed tight so things would not move around too much in the boxes. Another good idea is to make homemaid beef jerky. It is not hard make at all.

    I send out Chex Party Mix – homemade. It is really yummy, and it packs and travels well.

    We send a lot of pre packaged store bought, they survive the trip better. Also we have gotten requests for some of the following… Famous amos bite size, keebler pecan sandies, Oreos, Chip ahoy, Little Debbie, oatmeal with creme centers, and her brownies, fruit and nut granola bars, fruit leather, rice krispies. and for the candy we try to send hard candy that will travel in the pockets with the guys/gals..like skittles, starburst, lemon heads, etc..
    As for the homemade stuff we found that the best ones to send were sugar cookies, brownies and thumb prints.
    As for the packing, the best things to do is bubble wrap these good and put plenty of packing peanuts this way they won’t move around and they won’t break.
    Good Luck, and know that we are praying for all the guys and gals out there. God Bless them 🙂
