Stirring Up The Cookies

Stirring up the cookies

They’ll love the glitter. You’ll love that these cookies come together in one bowl. You can change the color of the glitter to work with any holiday or themed party. Think pink for Valentine’s Day. Yellow for Easter or Multi-colored for a My Little Pony party.

And I can hear you now saying “But where in the heck do you buy edible glitter?”. Well, you can find it every day at Michael’s or order it from Amazon. There you go. Next thing you know you’ll be putting edible glitter on everything.


Oh, and I wish that I could tell you that edible glitter isn’t like regular glitter in the “getting everywhere” department. I can’t. It does. It’s still worth it.
