About

Sweet Genius Treats is a Texas based cookie company, that creates unique flavor combinations to excite your senses. Our cookies are always fresh, baked to order, and handcrafted using wholesome and local ingredients.

How it all started

Where there is no vision, the people shall perish”. God bestowed upon us a vision that came into fruition the day our son, Christon Emmanuel Deshaun Bufford, on July 31, 2012 was born.

Sweet Genius Treats became a living entity through his existence, through his 36 hours of life, the vision became clear; bring sweetness in the midst of the bitter. In honor of the joy he brought us, we crafted the strawberry lemonade cookie. It’s so aptly referred to as Christon’s smile, because as soon as it touches the palate, there is an instantaneous smile that appears on your face.

Sweet Genius Treats is a living memorial to our son. It combines the culinary gifts of his father, Damon “Cookieman” Bufford, with the loving patience of his mother, to produce treats that are sure to create a smile in the hearts of all who experience each baked gem. Christon’s passing was not in vain; it was God granting us a vision to provide warmth and love through our Sweet Genius Treats. Every treat is a small celebration for our gift from God, Christon, and he will always be remembered.

On February 8th, 2016, we were blessed with our rainbow baby Danniel Isaiah

Every good and perfect gift is from above.

We give back

In honor of our son Christon, we donate 5% of every cookie sold to M.E.N.D. (Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death) and we invite you to donate as well!
