UPDATE: MARCH 24, 2020 — Melbourne's dedicated cookie shop is now delivering its chunky, gooey handmade doughy boys. Available within ten kilometres of the Windsor store, the delivery offering includes eight different flavours ($5–6 each): classic, triple choc, vegan, Nutella, churros, pistachio, peanut butter and raspberry. Orders are for a minimum of six and can be made by emailing [email protected].


Got a cookie obsession that just won't quit? Prepare to unleash the monster on Windsor's new dessert destination, The Cookie Box, where chunky, gooey handmade cookies reign supreme. The family-run brand has already proved a hit in Perth, where it launched in 2017, and now Melbourne's scored a decadent outpost of its own.

The Chapel Street store is dishing up nine permanent flavours from a classic peanut butter to Nutella and a fruit-laced raspberry number. You can also sink your teeth into the monthly-changing experimental creation. All of the treats are rolled by hand, rested for 48 hours and baked fresh daily, crafted only on top-quality ingredients including free-range eggs and smooth Belgian chocolate.

A solo cookie will set you back as little as $5. Otherwise, get a little adventurous with one of the cookie bowls, teaming a classic cookie with topping combinations like black forest — ice cream and Italian amarena cherries — or banoffee: banana, ice cream and lashings of caramel sauce.

The Cookie Box officially opens on Saturday, February 15, and it's celebrating by handing out a stack of freshly baked cookies — on the house. Be one of the first 250 punters through the doors at 10am on February 15 or 16 and you'll score yourself one of the shop's classic cookies for free.
