Well, now this mother-son business is sprinkling sugar into a variety of sweet treats. Melissa and Jacob Cohen have been cooking – or is it, baking – up some ideas during the pandemic.
“We’ve decided to do cookie kits, kind of a DIY sugar cookie kit where families can come together, seeing as they’re home more. And we also did chocolate-covered Oreos for Teacher Appreciation Week,” Melissa Cohen said.
“Delicious,” Jacob said.
“You like being the personal taster,” the man filming him asked.

But they don’t just bake for themselves. It was Jacob’s idea to donate proceeds of their sales to the Maryland Food Bank.
“It’s been about $1,000 we have been able to donate to the Maryland Food Bank,” Melissa Cohen said.
She said her son’s giving heart touched hers. Now they’re sending their love in bite-sized treats to homes across the region.
“He surprises me every day, challenges me every day and makes me a better person and a better mother,” Melissa Cohen said.
“Being able to know that I’m helping other people,” Jacob said when asked to describe his favorite part of the business.MORE NEWS: Maryland State Police To Assist U.S. Capitol Police With Security Ahead of Justice For J6 Protest
