Rainbow Sandwich Cookies

The past week I spent my days taking care of not 1, but 4 little youngins! Yes, that’s our 3rd time within the year of family-sitting ? It’s always fun seeing how life would be with more kids and honestly it is so much work but we try to make it as fun and normal for the kids as we can.

Tuesday, little Miss L made two 100’s on her tests so we were talked into heading out for ice cream to celebrate. The next day she brought home 3! I wasn’t ready to load up all 6 of us for an outing …again but I did pull out an easy cake box cookie recipe for a colorful treat to help her still feel special and accomplished.

Test out this fun treat that gave the kids all sorts of heart eyes!
