Would anyone know where I can find a shrink wrap machine for cookies? I want something that makes each cookie airtight.

I think some members have mentioned that they use their foodsaver.

Giving you a BUMP and hope someone can help you.

I read on another post that you can use regular saran wrap and shrink it. I tried it the other week and it worked well.

For food safe shrink bags you can get them at:

As rezzycakes said you only need a blowdryer or heat gun, no fancy expensive equipment necessary.

Where do you get shrink bags small enough to fit a cookie perfectly? And normally how much does it cost? I seen/bought the shrink bags but they are big like for a big basket.. I was trying to find the smaller ones for each cookie but no luck... thanks!

The smallest size I buy is 4x6 but the size I use most is 6 x 6.5. The shrink bags come in quantities of 500.

The bags come in a variety of sizes starting at 4x6 and you can purchase them from any of the vendors listed in this post. The prices, order minimum's and shipping costs vary per vendor.

Thank you... so you use the 6x6.5 the most... so a 4 inch cookie wouldn't fit in the 4x6 would it? i mean w/o it tearing the baggie?

It might, but it depends on the cookie shape and thickness. Shrink bags are flat unlike cello bags that are expandable. An example is my xmas stocking cookie, which is 4x2", it's fits perfectly, very snuggly in the 4x6 bag with no extra room. HTH

This might be a dumb question, but any chance you can use the shrink wrap/hair dryer method on my chocolate covered oreos? I'm pretty sure they would melt (I've never done this method, so I don't know how long you keep the hair dryer on for).
