    If you're on the cookie brigade website, there's a thread in the distribution section with all the info you need for drop-offs.

    Asked my fraternity for support at our meeting tonight. I will probably make a couple hundred cookies whether I get some friends/kind folks to help me out with buying dough and stuff- but it'd be nice to have my brothers show their support of my nerdiness :P

    Trading cards received! We'll make sure distributors have these to give out, should be helpful especially with people who have no idea what the brigade is.

    Bagged up the candy today, 230+ bags and 40ish bags of the root beer special edition flavor.

    Also convinced robziel to make his awesome chocolate chip cookie bars, so we have 70 of those to bring as well.

    Saturday before PAX = long work day for brigadier bakers. Ransim, you're gonna get the entire convention going on a sugar high!

    We got 200 combustible lemons done - they're a sandwich cookie this year, and I did NOT skimp on the cayenne. Gets ya right in the back of the throat. Also 200 Star Wars sugar cookies, and about 2 dozen Weighted Companion Cookies with the Portal cookie cutter set from ThinkGeek.

    JobiWanKenobi made chocolates all day: 2 dozen Crunchy Frogs, 16 peanut butter filled chocolate brains, Half a dozen coconut candy sparkle pops, 1 full chocolate chess set, and 9 or 10 dozen chocolate Han Solo in Carbonite (with nuts, of course).

    How cute are these!? These cookie cutters rock.

    So true @_@ baked 3.5 batches today and mixed the final 2 to meet my goal.

    Those cookies and the frogs look great though! I am definitely going to have to track people down for all these gems ... Would love to get the final cookie compilation list in hand before heading over :)

    Tomorrow is the Day of Baking Reckoning for me. I'm making two oft-requested faves, Rice Krispy Treats, and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (No nuts for the nut-haters). Also! Lemon Zest Madeleines sprinkled with powdered sugar for those of you who are pretentious, french, fancy, or all of the above and want something to dip in your coffee. All of these things will be gluten-free, vegan, and delicious.

    I have VERY sad news. After attempting to get some friends/family to donate, purchasing dough and other necessary components, putting about 50 cookies in the oven on 3 different pans, and waiting around for the timer to tick....... I witnessed the tragic grease-fire-esque-something-was-wrong-oven-got-super-hot-and-died death of my oven. That was a few days ago, and I still can't cook anything because the oven ignores the temperature dial and goes straight to the hottest it can get. So my cookie contribution has been lost in the crunchy-burnt-smokey massacre of 2012.
    Raise a cookie in remembrance of my recently deceased oven! His life was filled with pizza and cookies, and he died with a maw filled with cookies, the way all ovens should go.

    ;)

    I will still be distributing and such- can't wait to meet you all!!!!

    The Cookie Brigade does not sell or trade the cookies. We run around giving cookies out free, and at the same time if you wish to make a donation to Child's Play, we will gladly collect that.

    That said we'll have a crazy awesome selection of goodies to give away, as witnessed by many of the pictures in this thread.

    I've been posting picture on the Cookie Brigade G+ page as well.

    I'm very glad we're doing the train because we're going to have a suitcase just for brigade supply with us this year between the cookies and the candy.

    Should be fun maneuvering with that and my huge laptop bag on DC Metro and in Union Station.

    So I managed to make a couple batches of gummy space invader candy. I'm going to be bagging them shortly, but like the Root Beer candies they will be very rare drops that you'll need to come fight me specifically for. So if you want root beer hard candy or gummy space invaders keep an eye on my twitter @ransim. There are about 50 bags of root beer candy but I imagine there won't be many bags of the gummy candy I wasn't able to make a whole lot.

    Hi, I just registered on the Cookie Brigade site. I'm making matzoh brittle for a family dinner that I'm skipping, so I figured I could easily quadruple the batch and make some for Child's Play. For those who have not had the pleasure of having sampled matzoh brittle, it's matzoh topped with homemade caramel (butter + brown sugar + vanilla) and chocolate. Now I just need to think of a good name for them...

    That's pretty much chocolate covered matzoh. And I've got a recipe that's pretty similar.

    I am finishing off between 4 and 5 dozen plain old chocolate chip cookies. I am planning on making another 4-5 dozen Cadbury Mini Egg cookies tomorrow. Hopefully will have time for a batch of fudge and one other candy, plus whatever my wife makes.

    I would like to nominate MASeffect's oven for a medal of honor, since it died in service to the brigade. Maybe we could wear black arm bands or something...

    Hello! I am new to the cookie brigade and to forums. I'm having a hard time navigating the forums to find out the when and where to drop off my cookies. I have 15 dozen cookies and want to hand them over asap! Can someone more savvy than I point me EXACTLY where I need to go to find out this info? Am crunched for time to get ready, and don't have the time to spend hunting for the info. Thx so much!

    "chocolate covered matzoh" is too prosaic a name for such deliciousness. I'm thinking "Minecraft Chocolate Texture Pack".

    Are you baking the same thing? That would be great, as my family has already chowed through their allotted portion and are now greedily eyeing the brittle that I've set aside.
