Cookie Bouquet

My son accidentally hit a neighbor-girl in the head with a baseball bat last night, giving her a nice shiner. Today we decided to bake her some cookies to help her feel a bit better. I just baked Nestle Toll House Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies and placed the dough rounds on a clean lollipop stick right on the cookie sheet, prior to baking.

While the cookies cooled, I wrapped some cute paper around an empty juice container. Then I placed a few decorative rocks and stuck a piece of floral foam inside the container. The rocks helped put some weight on the bottom of the "vase."

When the cookies were cooled, I wrapped some curly ribbon around each stick and pushed them into the foam.

I thought a cookie bouquet would be cuter to present to a little girl than just a plain plate of cookies. In fact, she loved it so much that when I gave it to her, she hugged it and kissed each cookie individually! (I guess that way she knew that nobody else would eat any!)

How adorable! And Sweet! And what a lesson you taught your son today..."Everything is better (even a shiner) with sweets, especially chocolate!!" Thanks for the very, very clever idea. Is there no end to your creativity and ideas?!?!? I don't think so.
Hugs to you all ~ Vicki
