My 22 year old nephew is in the Marines and currently deployed to Afghanistan. I would like to send him and his friends a care package or two. It can take anywhere from one week to a month for them to receive packages.
I want to send home made cookies. Choco chip, cookie bars, brownies and oatmeal raisin.(These are his favorites) I also thought I would buy some trail mixes from Trader Joe.
What is the best way for me to pack the cookies so that will be somewhat fresh when they arrive? Would you use freezer bags? Would you use plastic containers? Would you put bread in the containers to keep moisture in the cookies or will the bread get moldy?
Or should I just buy name brand cookies from Costco?
