We did a low key party for him this year with just a couple friends and cake. My favorite part was the favors. I put together Skylander Element Boxes filled with candy for the favors and they turned out really great! I think I was just as excited about them as he was. I got the idea from here.
|So cute! Right?|
Water-gummy fish, Fire-fireballs, Earth-chocolate rocks, Undead-chocolate eyeballs, Life-green licorice, Air-airheads, Magic-purple chocolate covered pretzels, Tech-orange jelly beans
This would be a fun favor for lots of different parties I think. The tackle box idea you could use for a craft party, Legos and so many others! It's cheap, versatile and you can use it afterwards for things too!
My son requested an Oreo cake, so that is what I made. I used this recipe for a Chocolate Sour Cream Cake and then made a creamy Oreo filling.
1/4 cup butter, soft
4 oz. cream cheese, soft
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Fold in 8oz whipped cream until mixed well
Crush 1 1/2 rows of Oreos and fold into cream mixture.
Layer 1/2 of Oreo cream in the middle of the 2 layers of cake and the rest on top.
Melt 6 oz chocolate chips and 3 T butter until melted and smooth. Drizzle and lightly spread on top. Top with more Oreos if desired.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
