What a weekend! 5 parties in 3 days. It was fun but it was tiring.
Friday night we went to a 40th birthday party. Saturday morning I went to a baby shower – the Viking hat and Trellis sweater were both very well received. Saturday afternoon we went to a high school graduation party for Hannah’s boyfriend and then later Saturday evening we went to a college graduation party for a friend’s son. Sunday afternoon we went to yet another high school graduation party for the daughter of a friend at work. Whew!
In between all the parties I found time to make 4 dozen graduation hat pops.
I followed the directions on Bakerella’s blog and they were pretty simple. I don’t think putting the peanut butter cups in the freezer helped to keep the sides intact, though, and I didn’t wait long enough for them to thaw so I broked quite a few inserting the lollipop sticks. Otherwise, they were pretty simple to make. A bit fiddly but well worth the time and effort since they were such a hit at the two parties.
The blue and yellow ones were for Hannah’s boyfriend, Rob.
And the red ones were for my friend Amy’s daughter, Rose.
The kids got a real kick out of the treats. They were taking pictures of them with their cell phones – and then they gobbled them up.
Hannah’s already adding up how many she wants me to make for her graduation next year. Uh oh.
