Between getting the invitations out the door to decorating the house, it’s easy to get birthday burnout before the party even starts. After spending so much time prepping for the perfect day, figuring out what birthday party treats to serve can be an added chore. So instead of scrambling the web the night before, pin these birthday party treats now so you have them handy when duty calls!
Birthday Ice Cream Cookies
Cookie cutters aren’t just for sugar cookies! Make these adorable ice cream cookies with my simple peanut butter cookie recipe, chocolate, a ice cream shaped cookie cutter, and…sprinkles! No rolling pin needed!
Party Tip: Substitute chocolate frosting for the melted chocolate and allow the kids to frost their own cookies! Give each kid a small bowl of frosting, plastic knife (or spoon), and sprinkles for a fun birthday party activity.
Sprinkle Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
The only thing better than sprinkles are sugar cookies shaped like sprinkles! Make these sugar cookie dippers as the perfect birthday party finger food!
Party Tip: Set on on a platter with a big bowl or divide onto napkins & mini bowls for individual servings. I’m kind of obsessed with miniature bowls, so my vote would be serving them up 90’s Dunkaroo style. But you do whatever your sprinkle-loving heart desires.
