I admire all of you sugar cookie momma's out there. I'm usually a sugar cookie momma...but I was feeling the need for speed yesterday and decided to simplify our FHE treat/activity. I got an e-mail from a friend with a fun idea attached and decided to give it a try. (thanks Stephanie) You get a bag of white chocolate chips, melt them in the microwave, frost the front and sides of El Fudge cookies and then stick two chocolate chips on the front for the eyes. Easy and fun! Here they are:
WE ALL enjoyed this activity and they tasted good! Here's a side note: They no longer sell El Fudge cookies...did you know that!?! I did not and I was very shocked! I sent Casey on a "honey-do" for me yesterday during his lunch break to grab the needed items and bring them home with him. I expected a phone call from him while at the store (never fails, there's always something in some mysterious place...hmmmmm). He calls looking for the El Fudge cookies. I tell him where they are. He tells me he can't find them. I tell him to ask an employee. He does. The employee can't find them. They ask the manager. The manager says they no longer make them....O.K., WHAT??? When did this happen? What were they thinking to take this item off the market? I really don't buy them very often (I promise) but sometimes you just need an El Fudge! At first I thought maybe it was just a lazy manager and he really doesn't know what he's talking about, but this grocery store is THE grocery store around here and if they don't have something than no one does. Here's another side note: Do you remember those cute little frosted animal cookies? The ones with the little round sprinkles on them? They don't make those anymore either! They took the Mothers brand off the market. I guess they went out of business. We hardly ever have these in our house either (seriously, only around the holidays) but these cookies and all of the Mothers brand cookies brought back childhood memories for me. What is going on with the cookie market? Maybe they are just going to MAKE us all become healthier a little here and a little there.
So, Casey ended up getting the white Snack Wells cookies and they did the trick...and they still taste good!
