Fruity Pebble Pudding Cookies

Hey, guess what? You can now Follow my blog with Bloglovin!

Usually I’m really good at writing posts ahead of time. My goal is to have Sunday nights post written by Friday afternoon. Then on Mondays I do Crazy Sweet Tuesday and another post for the week, and so on.

On Friday last week, I was busy with Online BlogCon and preparing for the teachers’ luncheon I’m coordinating for next week, so I got my photos edited…but no content into the post, figuring I’d write some witty, funny, Dorothy-content on Saturday, sure to make you laugh your heads of an shake your head and say “that girl is crazy!”

Yeah. That didn’t happen.

Instead, I spent Saturday doing laundry. Eight hours of laundry. And I still have more than 10 garbage bags zip-tied in my garage. Of more laundry.

Jordan would prefer me not to really discuss what went down on Saturday. So I won’t, but you can probably guess. It involved laundry. And hair.

I’m still dealing with it, and will be for the next week or more.

Sigh.

So will you forgive me for not writing all funny? Can the awesomeness of these cookies speak for themselves?

I made pudding cookies (again). They are my absolute favorite kind of cookie. I still have another version to share with you next week!

I made these for Jordan’s cheerleading squad. So I wanted to make them kid-ified. What’s more kid than Fruity Pebbles? I, for one, love them. I love all sugar cereal. I wondered what they’d be like in a cookie. I googled it, and it’s been done, in cake-mix cookies. So I decided to try them in pudding cookies.

And what the girls didn’t eat? I did. Ohmygodtheyweresogood.

Waaaaaay better than vacuuming for 4 hours. Or doing 1,000,000,000,002 loads of laundry. Or combing. *Shudder*

So make these. You’ll like them. If you don’t, mail them to me. I’ll eat them. :)

    Ewww … laundry. Hate laundry. So sorry about the ‘reason.’ As a 1st grade teacher, I’m just waiting for my turn … BTW – the cookies look gorgeous! Hope your week gets better.

    Like I NEED another excuse to buy cereal. I’ve gone through like 5 boxes of “healthy” cereal in the last 2 weeks. I do not NEED sugar cereal. I mean, I want it; don’t be needin’ it though.

    I am so sorry for you and Jordan and the laundry and the cleaning and the *shudder* combing.
    Remarkably enough, our school nurse “doesn’t think lice is a big deal”. Good lord, my mother would have quite the argument with her.

      Tell me about it. They barely last a minute in my house! Oh, I’d have quite the argument too. I just spent $200 on a service and product to get rid of it. Um, that’s a big deal to me!!!

    Thankfully, among all of the heinous chaos over the weekend, you had pudding cookies. Ugh–I’m so so sorry about all that jazz–for you, and Mel, and Jordan, and yes, even Ginger and barfy Cali. That’s awful :( but you’re a rockin’ woman and this’ll all be over in no time, I’m sure. Just do what I’d do and bury your face in sugary cereal. It always helps.

    You have my deepest sympathies. Have you heard of the “Fairy Tales” line of hair care? You can get them at Ulta 3 – it’s preventative and I don’t know if it truly works or if it’s more mental but I’m going with it! I actually spray my kids backpacks, jackets and heads every morning before school because I’m still traumatized from an outbreak 2 years ago. (my kids escaped but the fact that their friends didn’t still scars me deep!)
    On a happier note, those cookies look amazing! I will have to pick up a box of FP next time – thanks!

    I know I’m a little late to the “party”, but I found this recipe on Pinterest as I was searching for a fun cookie to bake with my 5 year old! After getting all the ingredients together, she did the rest and the cookies were delish and so fun!!

    I’m still scarred from my encounter when I was in elementary and my mom had to comb my hair that was to the middle of my back and curly. That was no fun. Seeing as how my oldest just started Kinder and has my curly hair I hope we somehow miss any of that nightmare! But, I do have a trick my mammaw, a school nurse and RN of many many years has passed along to my mom and aunt, educators for years, and the teachers she worked with. Her recommendation was buy a bottle of regular baby shampoo and a bottle of liquid campho phenique. Pour out some of the shampoo and pour in the bottle of campho phenique. Shake it up real good and wash your hair with it once a month she said, but when I worked with kids daily I washed with it once a week to be on the safe side. Not sure if its more peace of mind, but I never had a run in and we had a few breakouts while I was working and I was always excluded. I’m sorry you had to deal with that mess!! But…thanks for the amazing cookie recipe! It will become a favorite and a keeper in our house :)
