Cookie-loving duo Kristelle Levy and Chelsie Collins’ Insta-worthy American-style cookies have been a huge success since the launch of Blondies Kitchen just two years ago, and have now sold over a million cookies from their permanent concession in Selfridges, London. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, why not share the love with one of their giant cookies?
The cookies come in a variety of designs and are priced at £30.
Kristelle and Chelsie are both professionally trained chefs; Kristelle trained at Le Cordon Bleu and worked as the Head Chef of a Primrose Hill café and Chelsie trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine and worked as a cookery writer for BBC Good Food. The girls originally formed a friendship over social media, which then developed into a working relationship catering for private events.
Their cookies, in particular, were such a huge hit at these events that they become known as the Cookie Girls, so they decided they wanted to branch out on their own doing one thing and doing it really well.
Their trial Milk & Cookie Bar launched in October 2016 at Old Street Station – it was a huge success. Blondies Kitchen sold over 800 cookies a day over the two-week period, which meant the girls worked 12-hour shifts
during the day to go home and bake all night!
Kristelle’s and Chelsie’s hard work paid off, their social media following grew rapidly. This new-found fame led to Selfridges launching a four-week pop up in May 2017, which was extended to five when Selfridges saw it was their most successful pop-up to date.
Blondies Kitchen went on to open their permanent concession at the iconic London department store in September 2017.
Since then they have produced over 500,000 cookies, with flavours including their ‘Klassic with a K’ (a vanilla dough topped with Kinder chocolate bars), ‘The Nutter’ (a gluten free peanut butter oat cookie) and the
‘Cocoberry’ (a desiccated coconut cookie with a raspberry jam centre).
Alongside their signature cookies, Blondies Kitchen also offer Cereal Milk, the UK’s first bottle cereal milk offering, and a selection of cookie-
themed treats including Cookie Dough Brownies, Nutella Cookie Sundae Cups and the giant ‘You’re My Jam’, a white chocolate chip cookie base filled with Jammy Dodger biscuits.
You can buy cookies here or you can visit them in Selfridges Food Hall, 400 Oxford Street, London.
