A Milk and Cookies Party is such a cute theme for both a Valentine’s Day party for kids or a birthday party. Here you’ll find ideas for sweets (including links to some of my favorite cookie recipes), “station” ideas for the food table plus favor ideas. The printable party set featured in here is from Just a Little Sparkle and the adorable milk carton favor boxes are from Paper Glitter.
Milk and Cookies Party – Food Ideas:
Obviously in a milk and cookies party, you’re going to want to serve milk and cookies…but how do you decide what types of cookies to serve? Before finalizing your party menu, be sure to check with guests for any allergies. One of my favorite cookie recipes is Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip. Since my son is allergic to peanuts, we no longer keep any peanut products in the house. For this party I used the same basic recipe but instead of peanut butter chips I split the batter in half and added chocolate chips to one (double chocolate cookies) and toffee chips to the other (chocolate toffee cookies).
Another delicious cookie recipe is this one for Chunky Chocolate Pecan Cookies (featured in the Complete Cake Mix Magic recipe book). They are made from a white cake mix so the cookies are really light and soft. Again, since my son is allergic to nuts, I omitted the pecans from the recipe. Also in the Complete Cake Mix Magic recipe book, you’ll find a delicious recipe for an Oatmeal Raisin Spice Cookie that is perfect for guests who aren’t a big fan of chocolate.
For something completely different yet still in the cookie theme, these Cookie Dough Truffles are delicious. They taste just like cookie dough but without the egg and other products that you shouldn’t eat raw. These look great in a glass candy vase on the party table.
Milk and Cookies Party – Drink Ideas:
There are so many fun ideas when it comes to serving milk at a party. For a milk and cookies party, try setting up a “Dunkin’ Station” where guests can dunk cookie pops into individual mason jars filled with milk.
You can also have a “Syrup Station” where guests can use chocolate, strawberry or caramel syrup to add extra flavor to their milk. Be sure to leave some spoons in this area for mixing.
Milk and Cookies Party – Favors:
Every party needs a fun treat that the guests can take home. The obvious choice here would be to send guests home with a small bag of cookies using a cute tag like the “Valentine, You are the Milk to my Cookie” tag featured here.
Another fun idea is to use these printable milk cartons from Paper Glitter and fill them with a treat like Milk Duds. These milk cartons also come in other colors and designs like chocolate milk, strawberry milk plus others.
I hope these ideas have inspired you to plan a fun Milk and Cookies party of your own! Now I’m left to wonder…who is going to help me eat all these cookies?
