Root Beer Float Mini Donuts

Root Beer Float Mini Donuts by The Sweet Chick
Well, summer is over and school has started for my oldest.  I am hoping to get the little one in pre-school this year also.  The house is so quiet and peaceful now.  I have more free time to get back into my hobbies.  Baking, of course, being one of them. I had a package of Root Beer Float Oreos in the pantry screaming to be used.  I am surprised that I had not eaten them all.  I love root beer and so does my daughter.  I know it's a bit on the sweet side, but once in a while I like to have a few sips.  That's why I love these Root Beer Float Mini Donuts I made with the Oreos, because they taste like root beer, but they aren't super sweet.

M&M Birthday Party

M&M Birthday Party Ideas by The Sweet Chick
I put together my son's 4th birthday party last week.  He's into a lot of things, but nothing in particular stood out as a theme.  That is until someone posted a photo of an M&M wedding cake on Facebook.  I had my inspiration.  My son loves M&M's in all different varieties.  He devours whatever flavored M&M's I buy to make recipes with.  He's not picky when it comes to his favorite candy.  So I researched Pinterest for DIY party decor and kept my eyes open when I was out shopping.  I tried to keep it simple because it wasn't going to be a terribly big party, but I wanted it to be special for him.

Candy Coated Oreo M&M's

Candy Coated Oreo M&Ms by The Sweet Chick
Summer is coming to a close.  Kids are going back to school in two weeks.  Yay!  I love my kids, but I need a break.  The past couple of weeks have been busy.  We drove up north for a week to see family and friends.  It's was nice to see everyone, but man, that drive is killer.  Then last week I was occupied with making treats and decorations for my son's birthday.  He loves M&M's, so I scoured Pinterest for ideas on doing an m&m party.  I found a few things, but these Candy Coated Oreo M&M's were my idea.  I've been wanting to make them for a while, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity.  They came out pretty cute.
