Today my cousin, her boys, my sister, her girls and my mom (and dad?) are coming over to turn my kitchen into a huge mess. A mess which will hopefully result in cookies, brownies, fudge, peanut butter bon bons and other assorted chocolate covered goodies…
I have never had a baking “party”, nor have I ever attended a cookie swap, so I am very much looking forward to today.
These are a couple of the things I plan on making: Melted snowman cookies (only, I forgot the marshmallows AND I don’t like marshmallows, so I’m doing my own variation) and brownie covered oreos. At the end of the bake-off, we’ll all swap with each other so that everyone takes home a bit of what everyone else made. Who doesn’t love that?!
A bonus is all the kids who will be here to entertain my children.
My sweet, sweet children:
Man, they’re cute.
And oh-so-classy in their little striped sweaters. They kinda remind me of the Princes William and Harry for some reason. :) They must look British. Or princely.
*whatever that means. He says it often.
Happy Wednesday. Gotta go bake!
