Ok... so you know how in my last post I talked about how trendy I am, and how cool people always combine two trends and then I combined two trends by making Cake Ball Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies... and they were amazing!!!!!
Well I have figured out a way to combine that trend (which is already a double trend) with ANOTHER trend.... making it 3 trends in one and making me perhaps the most popular girl in school.... EVER!!!!
Have you heard of a Gender Reveal Party? Quite possibly the cutest theme party I have ever heard of. (I LOVE theme parties... LOVE) Anyways, let me explain this party...
First, you must be pregnant in order to have the party. Requirement.
Second, you must WANT to know the sex of that sweet little child growing in your belly.
Third, you must love parties and surprises.
Eeeeeek! So what you do is.... upon receiving your gender determining sonogram, you have the doctor write down what the sex is and put it in a SEALED envelope. The doctor must NOT tell you or your baby daddy what the sex of the child is.
Then you plan this party... depending on how long you can go without knowing.. I would literally have to have my reveal party within the next hour!!!
You give the envelope to a trusted baker... friend, family member, stranger... doesn't matter. This person will then make a cake, cupcakes, cake balls.... or my cookies!!! with the gender color HIDDEN inside.
Invite all of your friends and family to the party. Have everyone wear the color of what they think the baby will be. Girl=pink. Boy=blue. Duh!
Make lots of yummy food and play lots of fun games.... then, when the time is perfectly perfect... make everyone be quiet and pay attention to you... at the same time everyone will then partake in the gender revealing dessert.
One bite and you will see pink or blue! It's a Boy! It's Girl! Screams, squeals, tears and joy!!! You now know what your sweet little baby will be and you have all of your favorite people there to share your excitement.
I think my cookies would be the perfect Gender Reveal dessert because...
1. They are easy to make.
2. They are delicious.
3. You can NOT tell what is going on inside that cookie. Blue? Pink? Boy? Girl? Sir? Ma'am?
So if you did decide to have a Gender Reveal Party and you did want to use my cookie recipe... this is what you/ your trusted baker would need to do....
Basically follow the instructions from the Cake Ball Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.
For the cake balls you will use a white cake mix and regular food coloring.
Mix your cake as directed on the box....
Then add a few drops of food coloring to get your desired pink or blue
Bake your cake as directed then follow my step by step instructions for cake balls. I used my melon baller which was perfect size to tuck inside the cookie.
Coat your cake balls with chocolate then place in the freezer for at least 1 hr. I explained all of this in the previous post.
Once the cookies are baked and cooled a bit you will be able to bite into them and see what color is hiding inside!
I just love these cookies!!!
You really can not tell what is brewing in there...
Just like with your own little baby inside your womb. Always a surprise!!!!
I really hope someone sees this and has a Gender Reveal Party! Even if you don't use my cookies... it is such a great party idea.
Twins!?!?! Eeeeeek!!! Have fun and please send me pictures if you have a party!!!
