Yummy in My Tummy
Tonight, I attend my third cookie exchange this month. I love making my Aunt Bettys One Eyed Susans, otherwise known as Peanut Butter Blossoms, but I am blossomed out.
I wanted something a bit different. At my last exchange they had a few new ideas, a grandma designed a carved board in the shape of a tree and placed her bourbon balls as the ornaments- Go Grammy! They also had a full bar on a Sunday afternoon (nice huh? why not?) One of the dads was serving oatmeal cookie shots- lots of fun stuff mixed together. Tasted like a real oatmeal cookie! So I thought I could switch it up a bit and I headed for the hard liquor aisle in the store. Guess what I found?
Break out the curly straw and prepare to be flooded by fond memories! Cookies & Milk with a 40 proof kick. May need to bring my camera for some memorable moments tonight. I grabbed a bottle and hit up Starbucks for some of those lil shot glasses. Picked up some whip cream and now we are set! Of course I will prep it on a silver platter and chill the goods in an ice bucket.
For an actual cookie pairing, I thought what would go well with chocolate and girlfriends on a night out?
MEN! Lots of them. Sing it with me….”It’s Raining Men…Alleluia!”
I had a night of fun dressing these guys and girls up for a night out on the town.
Even the kids got into it…
Since we were already making a bizillion dozen for the exchange, why not a few more?
The kids have their Christmas party at school today, so we thought we could make them for each classroom.
Overall, the night was a blast and turned into fun new traditions for all of us to do! Of course some of the G-men looked like they had a few too many…
But in the end it was not the kids nor the gingerbread men I had to worry about getting into the hot chocolate. Guess who got caught?
