This week I got my first chance at being a classroom mom. Quinn and I were both very excited about our special morning at preschool. He couldn’t wait to show me everything about his day and I was dying to learn all about it. Volunteering in his classroom was such a blast. I also signed up to be the Halloween helper at the end of the month. I just couldn’t miss his first Halloween party. Quinn’s preschool is a cooperative preschool, meaning there is a lot of parent involvement. We actually are scheduled to volunteer once a month, but I think I am going to let my husband take November.
Part of the job of classroom mom is to bring a snack. We got to have a little more fun with snack, since we were also celebrating Quinn’s birthday (he turns 4 on Saturday). We brought cheddar rice cakes and then threw in a fun, celebratory treat that was just the right size for a bunch of three-year-olds.
Now these really are just brownie bites out of a box. The secret is the frosting and the sprinkles. The frosting and the sprinkles are the finishing touch that says, “I’m special! Let’s celebrate!”. Don’t ya think? Whenever you are dealing with three-year-olds frosting and sprinkles are a must. We used the brand new Cool Whip Frosting (chocolate- Quinn’s choice) and I have gotta say, I am in love. This stuff is delicious. It is a mix between soft serve ice cream and Cool Whip. Seriously yummy!
I have no true skills in the kitchen. I knew I wanted my brownie bites to be pretty so I spooned some of the chocolate Cool Whip frosting into a baggie and cut the corner off so I could kind of pipe the frosting on. I was super impressed with how easy the frosting was to work with and how nicely it came out of my make-shift piping bag.
I had spooned too much frosting into the bag so I had to eat the rest. Darn! I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy it was. I even made the husband try it and he concurs…this stuff is good. I think this is my go-to frosting now.
It is so delicious and so easy to work with. The kiddos (and the teacher) loved them. In fact, they were all asking for more! I so wish I had pictures of Quinn and his birthday chair with his birthday place mat and all his buddies eating his birthday treat.
I gotta tell you, I am anxious to try the vanilla. Truth be told, I was kind of bummed Quinn picked chocolate. I thought it would be too rich and too much chocolate. It is surprisingly light, and refreshing. I found this Cool Whip Frosting at Walmart in the refrigerator section by the ice cream and toppings.
