alphabet party | cheese tidbits
Miss Pebbles turned two! Can you believe it? I remember when I first announced that I was expecting and then later when I announced that she was born. Time just flies.
We had an alphabet party for our sweet baby girl. I placed alphabet blocks around the house and on the food table, and we strung up alphabet wall art around the living room. It was so cute!
For food, I whipped up some cheese tidbits for the adults (recipe below) and some alphabet cereal marshmallow balls for the kids. I added sprinkles to make them extra fun!
And for dessert...cupcakes!
I made this delicious vanilla cupcake recipe and added sprinkles to the batter to make them funfetti cupcakes.
Miss Pebbles loved them!
Ahhh...it's so fun to look at those pictures. I just love that little girl! Thanks for letting me share...now on to the recipe. :)
These cheese tidbits are a recipe I got from my college roommate, Lauren. I remember that she would get packages of these and never share! I finally wheedled one out of her - I had to find out what all the fuss was about. They are buttery, cheesy, and peppery - a great and addictive combo.
2 sticks margarine or butter (1 cup)
2 cups flour
8 oz. package Cracker Barrel sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups rice crispies
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
Soften butter and mix with softened grated cheese. Add flour, salt, and cayenne. When well-mixed, fold in rice crispies. Roll into balls. Place on greased cookie sheet and press down with a fork. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.
