Milk & Cookies Girlfriend Party

I hosted this girlfriend party years ago and had posted it on a previous personal blog.... thought I'd re-share it here!

It's not nearly as fancy as some of the Milk & Cookies Parties I've seen on Pinterest these days, but this was my early, simple version with minimal expense.

Here's what the party consisted of:





We really enjoyed just talking and eating for this party, but there are two "games" that would work for this type of party.

Games
1. Type up a few different cookie recipes, but in each one, make an error.
For example, in the recipe for Almond-Cranberry Cookies, I changed 1 cup of cranberries to 1 cup of blueberries. In another, I changed the bake time from 10 min. to 100 min. These were really easy to figure out, so make them difficult. The first person to find the error wins. Repeat with several recipes.

2. "What's Your Cookie Like?" - (this is a breakoff of the game "What's Yours Like?)
On 5-10 different index cards, write the name of a type of cookie.
(peanut butter, no-bake, chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, sugar, etc.)
Divide the group into two groups. All members of the 1st team get to see the card. One person from the 2nd team will ask (in no particular order) the other team's members, "What's your cookie like?" The person asked will proceed to describe their cookie in a deceiving or non-obvious way with one answer.
Example of possible answers:
Mine has an ingredient that melts.
Mine is smooth and round.
My recipe for this does not use vanilla.

Then, another person is asked, "What's your cookie like?" That person, too, describes it in their own way.

The person trying to guess which kind of cookie being talked can guess after each person's answer. Each wrong guess is tallied.

When the person finally guesses right, the 2nd team now gets to see a card and the 1st team chooses one person to guess. This repeats for as long as desired.
The team with the least amount of questions (tallies) wins.

Sounds tricky, but it plays out very simply and fun.




What a sweet party with friends!
