Upon initial inspection of Holly Baking's Sweet Ginger Cookie Brittle, Cook E. Monster conjured up images of sticky candy getting stuck in the back teeth. Instead, these neatly shatter into piles of sugar, cinnamon, and pulverized ginger. The box touts all-natural ingredients, but the cookies themselves still have the feeling of a naughty binge. It takes a special person with a pronounced form of willpower to stop after eating just one of these bars.

Holly Baking is part of Sonoma County's Moon Dance Baking, a company also responsible for Viva Sonoma biscotti, Black Ace licorice, and Brighton's candy. Espresso and hazelnut chocolate chip are the two newest flavors to join the stable, which also includes butter rich, chocolate toffee, and chocolate peppermint varieties.

Find them in the city on the shelves of Whole Foods and Andronico's markets. But do take caution to coddle these fragile treats if there's a plan to serve them to guests.
