Craft Night Refreshments – no boys allowed

One of my friends has recently announced she will begin hosting an open craft night once a month for the ladies of our circle. Of course, I’m excited about working on projects while having a chance to socialize with all these lovely ladies, but I’m also excited to have an opportunity to try out some new recipes I’ve found-and many still yet to be discovered!

Girls deserve special goodies. Normally when I make something for a group it’s for a mixed crowd, or one dominated by husbands, so that influences my recipe choices. Men like things that are “hearty”. Big, chewy cookies and brownies, nothing with too many layers or flavors or delicate little crusts. They like things they can eat in one, impressive CHOMP. Frankly, I’m not going to spend three hours slaving over a special delicacy when I know that it will be devoured, not savored. That doesn’t mean this is *bad*, just that it requires a different mindset. These are a few things I’ve picked out that the ladies might like:

Cookie Dough Truffles

S’mores Cupcakes
