Pirate Birthday Party: Silver Nuggets

Inside the treasure box was the booty bags and "silver nuggets". The kids thought this was "so cool!" So after searching for the treasure box each kid got to pick their treasure out and enjoy. I wrapped 2 gluten free chocolate chip cookies with chocolate icing in the middle, in aluminum foil. So simple and such easy clean up. No plates and forks to deal with. Kids stood around ate their cookies and then were off playing on the playground. I had every intention of making cookies from scratch but as the party drew near I just didn't have the time, so I used a box mix from Cherrybrook Kitchen and it was fantastic. I highly recommend their coookie mix and their mix for the chocolate icing. Very yummy! And it's 100% natural, certified Kosher ingredients; peanut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, wheat-free, gluten-free. It does contain soy, though. Got a thumbs up from the kids but sometimes the hardest critics are the moms and all of them were found licking fingers, finishing off the cookies their kid asked them to hold.
