New Year’s Eve from the archives

Yikes, going through my archives for New Year’s Eve posts turned up only a few. I’ve been remiss! And I’ll likely still be remiss what with the addition of a wailing two-and-a-half week old to our house. To be fair, she only wails on occasion, about 20 times a day. Then she sleeps all precious-like and you forget what the wailing sounds like til it starts again. And then the five year old gripes that the 2 week old is “freaking out.” But then again, “freaking out” is the five year old’s new most-used phrase. So everyone freaks out.

So maybe I’ll make something this week for New Year’s. Maybe. What are you doing on the 31st? Anything wild and crazy? Or are you baking anything special? Because I need some ideas…



 These almost-midnight clock cookie pops were one of the first posts I ever wrote on this blog four years ago. Find the how-tos HERE.



 I even made a video how-to for these crazy easy sparkly marshmallow party pops. Don’t laugh.

Find the video HERE and find the written how-tos HERE.




And here’s an easier, bite-size version of the almost midnight cookies, except that I totally messed up the time. Yeah, that says 11:00. (Shake your head at me now.) Find those how-tos HERE.

    I love how festive all of these recipes are! The sparkly marshmallows are perfect for a New Years celebration and the almost mid night cookies are a wonderful way to end the year! I love how you had the almost midnight cookies on a stick but you also put in the recipe for the bite sized one as well. Baking these cookies are going to take New Years Eve desserts to a whole new level.
