Sweet PROM invites

Saturday I helped Connor and his best friend come up with a creative way to ask some very cute girls to prom.  My kitchen was destroyed, but I had so much fun helping them!

To make them we whipped up our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe--then chilled it for an hour or so.  We preheated the oven to 325 and pressed the dough onto a big pizza stone.  Be sure to leave about an inch or more around the edge--the cookie grows as it bakes!!  Also keep it pretty thin!  We baked it for about 15-20 minutes and then let it cool completely.  We added some more M&Ms to compensate for the letters spreading, "gluing" them on with melted chocolate chips.  We added the girls names with melted chocolate chips in a piping bottle and put it in the freezer to chill.
The boys then cut cardboard and covered it in tinfoil for the presentation. 
They delivered them wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbon in their school colors.

It would be "sweet" to go with you!

They came up with a good plan, huh?!
This was a first for us and it was so fun!!  I am going to enjoy this stage we are entering with my teenage boys!  Now I can not wait to see them all dressed up with their beautiful dates for prom!
