Hi, it’s me – Lily! Have you had a good week? I know I have! It was my Christmas Class Party yesterday!! My mom was the room mom so she came early. We got to eat pizza, play BINGO and we also got treats. One of them was a candy cane, so my friends and I pretended we were sea divers and used them as snorkels. The carpet was the land and the tile was the sea. It was hilarious!! The party was so fun, even if I didn’t win BINGO. You know what I did? We used M&Ms as the markers and we got to eat them at the end. I shoved all of mine in my mouth!! Cool, huh?
Another thing that is cool is the recipe we are sharing with you today. They are Turtle Thumbrint Cookies
We made our dough balls about 1 1/2 inches. 😉
The 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon works perfectly!!
You know what else is cool?! These Turtle Thumbprint Cookies. They are chocolate-y, caramel-y, nutty and YUMMY!! Get it?? If you are baking cookies for Christmas, you may want to try this one, especially if you love chocolate and caramel. 😉
