And you all thought I was turning into some kind of grown-up. We can’t have that now can we?
Someone asked me the other day how old I was and, you guys, not only did it take me a billion and one years to answer, I told them I was 18. It wasn’t until about 5 minutes later that I realized that I turned 19 a few weeks ago, what! I’ve concluded that I’m either losing my mind or in complete denial. You know you’re actually growing-up when you start denying your age, right?
That’s why I made these, to prove just how much of a kid I still am. Yeah, that whole getting older thing can hit the road and find someone its own size to pick on cause it’s not gonna be me today. In fact, no amount of maturity can poop on this parade so only kids at heart can proceed past this point. Does that include you?
Okay, great! I’m glad we can still be friends. Now that that’s out of the way, are you a fan of circus animal cookies? They were never my favorite because I always thought the dye made them taste kind of bitter.
They were always one of my mom’s guilty pleasures though, so they were something I enjoyed eating with her because of how much she liked them. Kind of like how Dad’s pop always tasted better than your own. Especially when you were 8 and you got to pour it for him and sip all the fizz off the top only to play dumb when he asked what happened to the first half of his coke. Ahhh, those were the days.
Anyway, these have been on my list of things to try to recreate for a while and I finally decided that I couldn’t wait any longer to try them. Sometimes you just have I need to eat circus animal cookies! type of days in this life and I’m here to show you how to make them at home!
I used all natural color for the pink frosting but I broke down and used some sprinkles since I just don’t think that it’s possible to diy those. I also put a little bit more fun into the mix and dipped some in chocolate frosting, because why not?
