Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce’s Mother Famous for Her Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is known not just for his skills on the field but for his big personality. It turns out, much of that personality might have come from his mother, Donna Kelce, who is famous in her own right for her chocolate chip cookies.

Recently, Donna Kelce, 71, came across a mug that caught her eye while shopping online. The mug was emblazoned with the words “It’s Mama Kelce’s world and we’re just living in it.” Donna loved the mug so much that she purchased 20 of them as Christmas gifts for loved ones.

What made these mugs special was that they contained the entire recipe and directions for Donna Kelce’s famous cookie recipe and sold for about $18 each. The mugs were created by a small business in the Kansas City area called Annie’s Barn. With each mug sold, $5 went towards paying off elementary school lunch debt.

After the mug caught Donna’s eye, Annie Stowe, owner of Annie’s Barn, reached out to her and asked if she would be willing to donate her recipe to the mug project. Stowe reportedly told People that the mugs sold enough to pay off roughly $2,000 in lunch debt at a school in the Kansas City area in just two weeks.

However, Stowe has not yet received a response from Donna Kelce regarding delivering checks to the schools. She plans to deliver checks to Pawnee Elementary in Overland Park, Kansas, as well as two schools in Olathe, Kansas.

Donna Kelce became famous for her cookies after making some for her sons Travis and Jason before they met in Super Bowl LVII in February 2023. The cookies are special because they are flat and more like toffee cookies. When Stowe reached out to Donna Kelce about her recipe, she told her that she had done it right – the cookies are meant to be flat.

While sports fans may be busy with watching Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs play against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIVIII next week, those interested in supporting this cause can visit Annie’s Barn’s website and purchase a “Mama Kelce” mug. They can be sure they are getting a really good cookie recipe too!
