The days are already starting to get extremely hot around here and I’m regretting ever wanting it to be summer, lol! Seriously, it has already hit 100 degrees here a couple times so the most important thing to start focusing on is staying hydrated! I also love to make fun summer treats to keep us fueled for the longer days. So, I combined those two thoughts into these super cute and fun Kool-Aid cookies! A tall, cold drink of Kool-Aid is definitely a summer staple to have around the house and who doesn’t love festive cookies?!
Jeremy is an outdoorsy type of guy. He loves to work on our vehicles, especially detailing them. You can find him out in the garage and drive way every weekend and even a few nights during the week tweaking and working. When we were renting a house he also loved yard work…. what kind of person actually likes doing yard work? Beats me, but I always worry about him not getting enough fluids to make up for all he is sweating out. Gross, I know. So, while doing my weekly grocery shopping at Walmart I spotted these huge 96 oz. jugs of Kool-Aid they had around on different displays.
I thought it would be a perfect alternative to what he normally drinks while working outside. He can’t have too many sodas from the carbonation for his acid reflux or caffeine. So, this would really hit the spot! I wanted to make him an extra special treat to go along with the Kool-Aid but something that would pair good with the fruity flavor. I knew right away I wanted to make Kool-Aid cookies so off to the individual powdered Kool-Aid I went!
I picked up two kinds, tropical punch and mixed berry. I was mainly looking for a red and blue but it didn’t hurt that they were my two favorite flavors either!
I got home and unloaded my goodies then got to work on the cookies!

I served up the cookies with the 96 oz. jug Kool-Aid that I garnished with a bunch of berries, it was so cute and yummy!
Jeremy loved the cookies but maybe the drink was a touch girly for him… what do you think? LOL! Either way he loved my efforts and thought the cookies were really “kool” looking! I love the cookie technique and will definitely be doing more like them in the future. They are fruity which is definitely a difference to other cookies I’ve made. Super fun to mix it up! And the colors just pop, perfect for Summer! I love how the cookies would be perfect for a 4th of July party too, red, white and blue all the way!
So, what do you think? Would you family enjoy these?
Jim Dillard, pro fisherman, could be coming to your local Walmart to help promote the new 96oz Kool-Aid bottles! There will be product giveaways, t-shirts, games, and more fun activities!
