ULTIMATE TASTE TEST 3.0 RATING: 3.8 out of 5.0
I met Ces Lopez through Jennifer Uy, who introduced her as the lady who creates the best chocolate chip cookie in town. I did not believe her at first, because I thought to myself that anybody can create a chocolate chip cookie at home. But the foodies have spoken in UTT 3.0, with a 3.8 rating similar to her rating in UTT 2.0 for her Supreme Brazo Bars. That rating is very significant because it is tough to please the foodies in an Ultimate Taste Test event, and they consistently rave about this sweet treat. :)
Her desserts are REALLY good -- you've got to try the Supreme Brazo Bars and her Chocolate Chip Cookies!

The Story of Supreme Brazo by Ces Lopez
Last February 2009, pastry afficionado Ces Lopez helped out her son (then about to graduate from Ateneo de Manila High School) and his class raise money for charity by making baked treats, which they can sell. Ces thought, what could be irresistible that could sell cheap, by the piece? Then it hit her: Brazo de Mercedes, as it has always been her favorite dessert, but cut in bars instead of rolled up! She started sending her son three dozens to bring to school, only to find they’re wiped out before noon breaks. Looks like the idea was a hit with everybody in the school, too!
The fundraiser was a success, as expected, and even days after, orders were coming in steadily. It was then that Ces started to refine the brilliant idea, polishing it at the edges. What started as a hobby and a fund-raising project has now come full-circle, evolving into a modern baking concept that’s now a promising business opportunity.
In the last Ultimate Taste Test 2.0, she featured Supreme Brazo Bars and in UTT3.0, she decided to just feature her Classic Choco Chip Cookies.

FATHER AND SON CHOCO CHIP COOKIE (ORGANIC)
Ces Lopez especially created this healthy, scrumptious cookie for a reason – it’s actually made and dedicated for a Catholic Seminarian and his father. He also happened to help the Tulong Dunong Fundraiser where Supreme Brazo Bars started. Both are suffering from malignant melanoma, the most advanced form of skin cancer, and since the treatment was rather expensive, he decided to leave the seminary for a while in order to help raise the needed funds so both he and his dad can get treated.
Loaded with Vitamin D and fiber rich, as it contains USFDA and QAI certified 100% organic flour, oats and whole grains, Vitamin D enriched diet is essential in prevention and health improvement of patients with malignant melanoma, and other types of cancers as well.
This sweet treat is not just for satiating the sweet tooth but also what everyone needs to keep their skin and whole body healthy.
Part of the proceeds from every sale of the cookie will be given to Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii in Tanay, Rizal and for the treatment of our seminarian friend and his father.
