Cookies & Cupcakes (JOE’S BDAY PARTY 2)

In addition to the Zucchini Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins that I made ahead of time for my cousin’s birthday, I also wanted to make some cookies and cupcakes! I made the cookie dough ahead of time as well and the cupcakes the day of the party.


I’ve written about these “surprise peanut butter middle chocolate cookies” before… they are one of my favorites! But they take a while to make. The chocolate dough has to be chilled before flattening out each cookie in preparation to be filled with the peanut butter middles.

It can get a little messy but they’re fun to make (and so worth the work!!!) 🙂

They turned out well! Everyone loved them! 😀


Since it was a birthday party… I had to make something I could decorate for the occasion! So I decided on chocolate cupcakes with white icing that I would decorate to look like the Philadelphia’s baseball team’s mascot The Phillie Phanatic! 🙂 It was not as clean looking as I would have liked since I was decorating cupcakes as if it were a flat sheet cake… But I think it turned out pretty well!

And Joe enjoyed “helping cleaning up” by sampling the leftover icing!!! haha

It was a very fun day! Great food, wonderful family, many laughs. 🙂

Thanks for reading!!
