Dinner for J’s party was fairly simple: Costco pizza and home made salad. J is not a big eater, so we went very low key and with something we thought he might eat. He ended up eating chips, and a fruit packet. So…good thing we went low key! I had more fun with the appetizers, and here is what I made:
I made Picky Palate’s M&M cookies for favors. I wrapped them in a cellophane bag and sealed them with a piece of washi tape.
Then I made crockpot hot chocolate, which was also a big hit. It was also really delicious:
For one appetizer I made a simple trail mix, which is J’s favorite. It is just a combination of chex mix, pretzels, peanuts, and m&ms. We just leave out the peanuts for J.
And then I made a cookie dough dip that we served with graham crackers and Granny Smith apple slices:
And finally I made cupcakes just using a boxed funfetti mix, and then I decorated four of them to look like Cookie Monster using this tutorial. The rest I topped with our family standard icing (powdered sugar, milk, vanilla extract), and added either a cookie or sprinkles.
