Callen turned 1 this past week. I can’t believe he’s already 1 year old. I guess time really does fly by when you’re having fun. I know that time will just keep on going by us if we don’t stop and enjoy the moments we have, even those times when its inconvenient to jump up from the couch and teach him that he can’t touch the TV. That’s his favorite things to do now.
I will post pictures of his party later. When I get pictures from my Aunt and my Sister (in-law, but I claim her as my sister). I didn’t have a chance to take any pictures so they were my photographers.
I wanted to go ahead and tell you about the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pops we made. They were pretty much a party in your mouth, as my friend Jonny would say. If you love eating raw cookie dough, then you’re going to love these. These are very easy to make and you don’t have to turn on the oven.
Props to my sis for helping me make these for the party. She was a huge help with preparing for the party.
I first made them like the recipe, we rolled out about 30 dough balls and then we decided to taste the batter. It wasn’t great, it was missing salt. So we had to dump all 30 dough balls back into the bowl, add salt and mix again. This time we tasted before scooping out all the dough. Adding just a little salt made it taste so much better.
