This way you can utilize the reach and exposure of your wonderful content..  We will still be sharing party features through our social media and are looking into even more ways to highlight our party features and show them off to our followers.  So stay tuned for even more way the Party in Your PJs link party rocks.












The rules for the group board include:
1. Limit of one pin a day.
2. Just like the party anything goes, but clear wonderful pictures with great descriptions are most successful.
3. Please no Spam ( Spammers will be deleted without warning)

Autism Awareness Chocolate Covered Oreos


April is Autism Awareness month, and I wanted a quick and fun treat to make to share with friends and family.  I have wanted to make chocolate covered Oreos for a long time, but never got around to it.  When my friend Heather from Twins Plus One Goodies  shared a picture of the mold she just got, I knew I HAD to make some!



Autism Awareness Chocolate Covered Oreos


Aren't they stunning?  The mold came from Spinning Leaf and the quality of their molds are amazing.  While I have never made chocolate covered Oreos using a mold, I have dipped them before and used other chocolate molds make by other companies.  The molds, from Spinning Leaf are the BEST.  They are sturdy and strong and the details are the best.  The mold I used for this project is their Autism Awareness Sandwich Cookie Mold, and I could not be happier with how they came out!

Autism Awareness Chocolate Covered Oreos

Since I have never made these before, I followed the tutorial found on their website.  It was simple and clear and they offered many tips to get clean and professional looking molded sandwich cookies. You can find their tutorial HERE.

Since this was my first time ordering from this company, I only ordered two molds, the Autism Awareness Mold and the Standard Mini Sandwich Mold, which I have not had a chance to use yet.

If you have been wanting to try Chocolate Covered Sandwich Cookies using a mold, I highly recommend ordering from Spinning leaf, their molds are the best I have ever worked with. 

These cookies were easy to make and I love the way they turned out.  Collin loved them and I will be making them again soon.  I can not wait to order more of these molds and try more designs.  Spinning Leaf offers a wide variety of designs and products, standard size, mini size, chocolate molds and truffle molds.  I am not sure what I will be ordering next, but I will be sure to share with you soon.


*While this post includes links to Spinning Leaf, I was not compensated for this review, I simply love their products.*

Party in Your PJs #50

Welcome back to Party in Your PJs.


Welcome to the party!  It has been raining here all day, so I am feeling a little gloomy.  Do you get like that when you have rain for several days.   I think I would enjoy it, if I could stay home, and bake or read a good book, but I have a full-time job that requires me to get out of my PJ, drive to an office and act like an adult!

Bree and I have been talking about making some changes to the party.  We are not sure what we will be doing or when it will happen.  We are trying to figure out new ways to make the party not only fun but inviting to bloggers.  What is it about a party that entices you to join it?  Do you you like BIG parties? Small parties?  Do you like the host to share via social media?  What social media do you prefer?  What type of party goer are you?  Do you link and run?  Or do you hop around and visit other blogs?

Speaking of the last question...this is something that I struggle with, as a link party goer.  I like to join as many parties as I can each week, but will confess that I am not always good at visiting other blogs at the party.  Sadly, I think this is happening to many of us bloggers.  We want to link to many blogs parties  but don't have the time to visit other blogs.  THIS MY FRIENDS IS A PROBLEM!!!  See, for a blogger, we join link parties to get exposure, to gain a loyal following,  but if we are not visiting each other, we don't get that.  If we are not benefiting from joining parties, we stop joining.  See the problem?  I challenge each one of you to visit at least ONE OTHER blog that has linked up to this party for each link you add.  I am not going to go a crazy and demand it, but, lets spread a little love around shall we. 

As the host of this link party, I see just how many views this party gets, how many links it gets and more importantly how many clicks it gets.  Clicks mean how many times the links were clicked on, or how many blogs were visited.  I will not share that number, because, well....it is sad...and I don't like to be sad....so make me happy this week...click around....make friends....learn something new. 

It really is the Golden Rule...Do unto others, as you would have done unto you!

Want people to visit your blog from a link party.....VISIT OTHER BLOGS!

(what is even more sad....is that many party guests will not even take the time to read the party intro...so...lets see who read all of the intro....if you read it.....leave a comment telling me the name of your favorite movie of all time...the movie that you have watch a million times...and watch every time it is on TV....my movie......Forrest Gump)

Now...enough of this busy stuff....onto the party!

Bunny Silhouette Cookies

Easter is this weekend...are you ready?

I was asked to donate cookies to a bake sale for Relay for Life...and of course I said YES!  With the bake sale being the Friday before Easter, I thought Easter Cookies would be a great cookie to sale!

I wanted to be able to donate as many cookies as I could...so that meant a quick cookie!

Bunny Silhouette Cookies

I once again turned to Simply Sweet Stencils to help me make a beautiful cookie!  I base coated the cookie with purple, the color of the Relay for Life Logo, and once it was dry used the Bunny Silhouette Stencil and a stiff white icing to add a bunny, when I finished the stencil, before it was dry, I dipped it in white sanding sugar, to add a little sparkle!

Bunny Silhouette Cookies

These cookies came together so quick!  I was able to stencil 24+ cookies in less then 20 minutes.  If you are in need of quick decorated cookies.....Stencils are the way to go!


No Easter would be complete without Peep cookies...so I made a few of them also!  Aren't they cute?
