Minnie 2nd Birthday
A Minnie themed birthday party can be so much fun! First of all I love pink, so the more pink the better! Here are some ideas for your child's Minnie Themed Birthday Party.
My best friend's daughter is turning 2! Her theme for the party is Minnie Mouse. Her decorations are so adorable! We typically work together on activities for our kiddos or anything in the kitchen. She told me her ideas for the party and from there we had to brainstorm of how to actually make them.
Honestly we went in blindly and had a few trial and errors, but these turned out adorable and taste delicious! She had bought 2 different cookie cutters. The Minnie head has a bow on it but for some reason when it baked you could not see the bow. It actually worked in our favor because we could use the same cookie cutter and make Mickey as well.

So my mom used to be a baker! She used to make wedding cakes when I was younger. So when the bestie says she need's Minnie cupcakes & a Minnie cake, my mom was just the one for the task! My mom baked all the cupcakes and cake. She assembled the cake and did all the icing. I added the Minnie ears and bow!
My mom's recipes are top secret for the cupcake, cake flavors, and icing. Even I don't know the recipe for the cupcake flavors. I will not be sharing those, but she did make vanilla and chocolate.
Lastly my husband made a wooden #2. My bestie painted it and turned it into a Minnie! When our kiddos turned 1 he also made wooden 1's. I play to post them at a later date. He will probably end up making them a number every year.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Her birthday party was so adorable!
When I was in elementary school I didn't hand out your typical card Valentine. Instead my mom would make rice krispy treats shaped into hearts. She would hand write everyone's name on them. I used to love helping her make these.
Well I am no longer in school. I am a mom now. Although my little one is not in school yet, I can still start a tradition with him. And our little girl once she is here!
This was my first time making these on my own. I am pretty pleased with the outcome! My mom was a cake baker/ decorator for years. Her handwriting is by far better than mine. I hope to improve over the years of making treats for my kiddos!

Sweet Halloween Treat
Today while Asher was napping I had some time to make a delicious meal for dinner AND a sweet treat! Which Asher approves!
I was looking through my cabinets of all my ingredients I had and decided to just start mixing a bunch together! This is a spin of Muddy Buddies, but Halloween style!
9 cups Chex cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini unwrapped Reese's peanut butter cups
1/2 cup mini Reese's pieces
1/2 cup candy corn/ pumpkin mixture
In a large bowl place Chex cereal and set aside.
Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in the microwave for 1 minute. Take out and stir. If not smooth put back in microwave for 15 more seconds. Remove from microwave and add vanilla.
Pour chocolalte mixture over Chex cereal and stir until all cereal pieces are fully coated with mixture.
Place powdered sugar in a 1 gallon bag and add the Chex mixture. Shake until all pieces are coated.
Next add chex in a big container to store them in. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Once you put the lid on give the container a few good shakes!
