Sesame Street Party: The Food

On New Years Eve we had the boy's 2nd birthday party. The theme was Sesame Street of couse. All they talk about it "Melmo" (Elmo). I decide to break this up into several different post about the details and then I will show you it all put together at the end of the week.

Today we will talk about the food.
I made this rainbow slushy. I found the recipe at Ramblings from the Sunshine State. It was very tasty and pretty but if left out too long it turns into a yucky brown color.

 It wouldn't be a Sesame Street party without some yummy cookies for Cookie Monster. I made the ultimate cookie, it is a oatmeal, peanut butter, M&M , and chocolate chip cookie all wrapped into one cookie. It is called a Monster Cookie, fitting for a Sesame Street party right? I found the recipe for this at Simply So Good.

We had some potato chips for Big Bird and some goldfish in honor of Dorothy, Elmo's goldfish. We also had pizza because that is Elmo's favortie but I didn't get a picture of that.



And it wouldn't be a birthday without some kind of cake. Me and my cousin made these Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Grouch cupcakes.

To make these we put vanilla icing on the top, dipped them in different colors of sanding sugar.

Elmo
Eyes: Jumbo Marshmallows (sliced in fourths) and chocolate chips
Nose: Orange Peanut M&M
Mouth: Half an Oreo

Cookie Monster
Eyes: Jumbo Marshmallows (sliced in fourths) and chocolate chips
Mouth: Cut a slice in the cupcake and put a mini chocolate chip cookie

Grouch
Eyes: Jumbo Marshmallows (sliced in fourths) and chocolate chips. Black icing for his eyebrows.
Mouth: Half an Oreo
