I’ve been really intrigued by all the cake mix cookies recipes I’ve seen floating around Pinterest and decided to give it a shot. But, in typical SweetMeets fashion, I wanted to jazz it up a little. So I threw some Fruity Pebbles cereal and white chocolate into these funfetti cake mix cookies! The result is a super colorful, slightly fruity cake batter cookie filled and topped with white chocolate. So good… and super easy!
This month’s Growing Edge blogging event theme is Random yet Creative. This month is hosted by Jess from Little Girl Story. I felt this mix of rainbow craving food fit the bill! This event is always really fun for me. I love a food-related challenge! I definitely recommend checking it out.
I used Betty Crocker’s rainbow party chip. So festive! I decided to do some research into the Betty Crocker company for today’s history lesson. I expected to read some heart-warming story about a nice baking lady. Did you know that Betty Crocker isn’t even real? This is an outrage! I’m so disappointed right now. I thought she wrote one of my most-loved cookbooks!
The Washburn Crosby Company developed the brand in 1921. Betty was picked based on its cheery, Americanness and Crocker was used to honor company director William Crocker. Lame. Betty Crocker’s American housewife image was designed by Marjorie Husted. The character was voiced by Agnes White on the nation’s first radio cooking show. In 1949, Adelaide Hawley played Betty Crocker in commercials and TV shows. Branded cookbooks, appliances, housewares and later baking mixes were released under this brand which is now owned by General Mills.
