It really didn't matter that the children are in their 20's. They still enjoyed the late night treat, as if they were small!
That makes a mama's heart happy...
The creation is actually a little more tricky than it appears.
You have to get your cookies hard enough to be able to sit on top of a glass...
But, because they are so big, you don't want them hard enough that no one will eat them.
And of course, you have to get the straw through the cookies without cracking the cookies!
But when they are all done,
aren't they cute?
Milk and cookies. In one. Kinda.
I'll be honest..in that same
I also took a quick trip to the convenience store
to 'score' some red straws.
I had neon straws, but I wanted red.
Nope, neon wasn't going to make the cut!
I simply glue-gunned those cute little hearts onto the straw.
I did this before I put them through the cookies. Obviously.
I've always been of the belief that you should celebrate
all year long.
Don't just save it for one day per year.
Happy not-Valentine's Day.
