We're big fans of Instagram here at The Cookie Cups. We love connecting with our customers and sharing the latest flavors, classes, and behind-the-scenes fun at our bakery through our feed posts and Stories. 
This popular social media platform is also great for getting to know the Minnesota foodie community. We have a lot in common with these local food lovers (obviously!), and we want to give a shout out to some of our favorite accounts we follow. 
If you love delicious food and local eats as much as we do, we highly recommend checking out these seven foodie Instagram accounts, all based in our home state.

Happy World Chocolate Day. So oh what the hey, in honor I had to make skillet cookies today. After being out of town for several days and nights, I finally got back to my smokers and grills. You see, on the weekends I often make most of my meats for the upcoming week. Today was no different. I made a boatload of wings (hmmm, Wing Wednesday is coming up), chicken breasts, steaks and voila, for dessert, a couple of skillet cookies or sometimes people call this pizookies. I made one gluten-free and one regular style. With the exception of Blue Diamond almond flour and Splenda, all of the other ingredients in the gluten-free skillet cookie are the same: butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, egg yolk, baking soda and yep, chocolate chips. I put these into the smoker at 350 degrees and smoked these for 22 minutes. Now I mighta had a little small apple chunk still in my charcoal from when I made my chicken wings and normally I’d start with clean charcoal, but hey, I was lazy. Aaaand thankfully the smoke was just a hint and wasn’t overpowering. After not really waiting for this to cool down and burning the roof of my mouth, I added a little vanilla bean ice cream on top. Boy that rocks. Yes or know. I gotta know. Do you like chocolate a little or a latte? #worldchocolateday #chocolatecookies #skilletcookie #pizookie #chocolatechipcookies
