Cake, Cookie, Brownie and Dessert Bar Mixes

Easy Does It: Cakes, Cookies, Brownies and Dessert Bars

People are in a hurry – mealtimes are shorter, the old “business lunch” is now just long enough for… dessert! When your customers are on the go, you can exceed their expectations and desires with Krusteaz quality and taste. Without spending an arm and a leg, or making your kitchen staff crazy. Krusteaz Professional offers a wealth of innovative ideas and new combinations that support your concept and set your operation apart. We will help you turn grab-and-go favorites into delightful moments your customers will remember.

Back in 1932, Krusteaz started with dessert – the simple pie crust mix that was easy to make and delicious to serve, every time. Now, over 80 years later, we know a thing or two about baking up great goodies!

Cake Mixes and Toppings: Krusteaz Plus and Ghirardelli chocolate cake mixes are add-egg-and-oil mixes that bake up ultra-rich and moist. The addition of eggs and oil at the bowl create a rich, moist and luxurious cake that is perfect for special desserts.

Think about: For best results, refrigerate baked cake if storing for more than 4 hours.

Icing & Toppings: Finish off your cakes with Krusteaz icing and streusel topping. Just add water prep – it couldn’t be easier to put the finishing touches on your cakes!

Wow factor: Don’t forget to customize your mixes with new colors!

Brownie Mixes: Krusteaz and Ghirardelli chocolate brownies are handheld favorites that are perfect for the bakery case, grab and go, or plated. Chewy and packed with deep dark fudgy flavor, their super moist texture makes them easy to store for extended periods (up to 48 hours).

Did you know: For more cake-like brownies, use warm water when mixing ingredients.

Cookie Mixes: Krusteaz Deluxe Cookie Mix is similar to a sugar cookie base in flavor. It is versatile enough to make a variety of flavors.

Try this: Krusteaz Deluxe Cookie Mix is a perfect base for chocolate chip, chocolate, peanut butter and lemon cooler cookies, to name a few.

Lemon Bar Mix: A Real Sweet-Tart! Krusteaz Lemon Bars Mix is a one-step mix that combines tart lemon flavor with a sweet shortbread-like crust. The result is a home-style bar that can be plated or wrapped as a grab and go item.
