With a Roll of the Dice

It was that time of the year again, my turn to host bunco. What is bunco you might ask, well one website I found described it this way... "Bunco is a social event. It's a party. It's a blast!" And this is so so true. My friends and I have a total blast eating, drinking, chatting and just having a good old time. So since there is food involved, I try my best to make fun things to eat and some things I have never made before. I also like to pick a theme, and this time around I went with spring. Since I always have to have cake pops, here are my blue birds of happiness along with some flower apple pie pops.
The bottom plate is filled with brownie whoopie pies with a coconut pecan center. The top plate are little veggie sandwiches.
The trio here consist of chocolate raspberry truffles, orange sugar cookies and a cheese and cracker plate.
And what's a bunco night without drinks. I had ice water with lemon and cucumber slices, sweet tea and then assorted sodas and wines for the picking.
And since I didn't want the table to be all sweets, I also had apricot sweet and sour meatballs and some texas caviar (not real easy to see the bowl of this in the picture, but trust me, it was there).

I did remember to take pictures of things as I was making them and plan to share the how to's in future post. So check back in weeks to come. :)


  1. Oh those bluebirds are so cute! Saw some bunny cakepops the other day and thought of you : )

  2. OK, so the blue bird cake pops are adorable! I will definitely need the brownie whoopie pie recipe and the truffle one, too! YUM!!!

  3. Thanks you two. Court, the brownie whoopie pies will be featured here in a week of two. You can find the truffle recipe under March '11 (Oh My Ganache).
