WOW! Cookies!

For culinary-school dropout Penny Parker, the gourmet-cookie business has been very sweet. She launched WOW! Cookies! less than three years ago, but business has grown so quickly, she had to rent out a commercial kitchen and hire 10 part-timers to help with orders for her impeccably packaged creations. While Parker's forte is corporate gifting (client appreciation, employee recognition, etc.), anyone would melt upon receiving a gift like her indulgently delicious Chocolate Lover's Dream -- a handsome keepsake box filled with handcrafted Amazing Triple Chocolate Brownies (made with imported European semisweet, bitter, and milk chocolates) and plump Chunky . . . OH SO Chunky Chocolate Chip. While sensational even on their own, these treats are best when served alongside a hefty salary increase.
