If you’ve been following along for a bit, you’ll know that I’ve started a new series on the blog titled “Sweet Stops”, a monthly trip to a local sweets/treats/heavenly place here in Utah, where I share my favorites with you guys.
Today marks stop number 2! (Catch my first trip here).
If you’ve been to Salt Lake City before, you may have heard rummblings of a local cookie joint that’s too good to pass up. A retro throwback to pin-up’s of the past (and a sassy one at that!) Ruby Snap packs the flavor, charm, and spunk of those gals you admire from across the room and secretly wish they were your new best friend, but in cookie form, of course.
Located in downtown SLC, the store front is just as charming an before you even step foot through the door.
Once you walk in, you’re hit with the smell of freshly baked cookies and greeted by the perfect reminder of girl power. And a giant cookie case packed with deliciousness and running the length of the shop doesn’t hurt either.
It really is hard to pick just a few to try, but if you’re hard pressed between a few options, they offer free samples too! (Hallelujah!)
Ordering an “Audrey” or a “Margo” just seems more fun that your regular old chocolate chip. Am I right?
You can pick a single cookie, buy half a dozen, or go the full monty and get 12 of these bad boys. I grabbed a box 6, mostly because I couldn’t decide on just one, and because my sweet loving self always wins out when it comes to sugar. More is more and whoever said “less is more” hadn’t ordered these cookies.
I picked “Nina”, a coffee and toffee delight topped with a brazil nut and chocolate, “Penelope”, a peanut butter truffle cookie that’s dipped in chocolate, “Ricki” (whom I might have waited for to come out of the oven – and yes, they will serve them to you WARM!), a coconut cookie dough with coconut, almonds and semi-sweet chocolate, “Trudy”, a knock-your-socks off old fashioned chocolate chip cookie, “Zoey”, a blueberry lemon chia cookie with fresh squeezed lemon glaze, and “Lola Panela”, a lemon cookie topped with lemon bitters.
Needless to say I was a happy camper.
There’s just too much moist peanut buttery goodness not to love. And did I mention chocolate?
