How to Mail Muffins, Cookies, and Other Baked Goods

The best part of making delicious treats is sharing them with friends and family. But that can be especially difficult when you live far away from each other. Luckily, many baked goods can be shipped to your loved ones for a tasty surprise. 

Follow our helpful shipping advice so your cookies and baked goods arrive safely.

Choose Denser Baked Good

The denser and sturdier your cookies and bars are, the better they travel. Gingerbread cookies, brownies, and shortbread all do well when shipped through the mail. Try one of our favorite mail-worthy recipes that all start with a box of Krusteaz®:

  • Chocolate Chunk Espresso Blondies
  • Gingerbread Snickerdoodles
  • Almond Doodles
  • Classic Cutout Sugar Cookies
  • Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread

Carefully Pack Your Treats

Arrange cookies and bars neatly into a plastic container or tin with a piece of wax paper between them. For extra care, consider wrapping each treat completely in wax paper and placing in the container.

Bake pound cakes, quick breads, and muffins in disposable aluminum pans and leave in the pan for added sturdiness while shipping. Carefully wrap the whole loaf, unfrosted pound cake, or pan of muffins with wax paper and place in a plastic container or tin.

Select a sturdy shipping box and add crumpled newspaper or bubble wrap in the bottom. Place the food container in the box and put more packing materials on all sides and on top of the container so that it fits snuggly in the shipping box.

Once your treats are securely packed in the shipping box, you’re ready to take it to your local post office or other shipping service location. 

Share the Krusteaz®, Please!

Just because we can’t always be together with the ones we love, doesn’t mean we can’t share tasty treats with each other. The next time you make a batch of cookies, or a tray of decadent brownies, consider sharing with friends and family through the mail.
