Cookies, Karlie Kloss, and helping a good cause? I, for one, really can't think of a more delicious combination. Back in 2012, when Karlie Kloss partnered with chef Christina Tosi to create a healthy and philanthropic line of yummy cookies to benefit projects with the FEED organization, you better believe that all of the fashionably conscious folks of New York headed to the Momofuku Milk Bar to get their hands on them. The supermodel may have one-upped Toll House back then, but today, she's one-upping herself with a brand-new, hot out of the oven cookie that supports the CFDA and the next generation of young fashion designers.
The Council of Fashion Designers of North America's (CFDA) Foundation’s Educational Initiative provides students with fashion aspirations the awesome opportunity to mentor with some pretty fabulous CFDA members in the Visiting Designer Program to help inspire the next Vera Wang or Marc Jacobs. Umm, sounds pretty cool already. But what makes it all even yummier is that the profits from Kloss's newest cookie at Momofuku — the Coco Kookie — are directly helping those kids reach all of their very fashionable dreams. "The Coco Kookie combines some of my absolute favorite things— cookies, fashion, and giving back," she says.
Since its launch, Kloss's Perfect 10 Kookie — another wholesome goodie from the line — has provided half a million meals to those in need, and if that's any indication of the impact the Coco Kookie will have, I'm predicting some pretty inspired kids. And if you're not near Momofuku Milk Bar, tins of the addictive confection can be bought on its website. See, there are no excuses! Aren't you sick of eating cookies that aren't even for a good cause?
And there's no need to fret: Karlie's Kookies don't just do good — they taste good. The recipe, you ask? The Coco Kookie is a wheat-free sweet treat with maple syrup, crunchy pecans, and some yummy coconut. Get in my belly!
