Caleb's Birthday Party

My nephew Caleb had his 2nd birthday party on the weekend. I can't believe he is 2. He has grown up so fast. I'm not being biased but he is such a smart young man. At the tender age of 2 he is out of nappies, knows how to have a proper conversation and always says Please, I Love You and Ta. He also has great taste buds. He loves Fried Tilapia and eats all different kinds of fruit without hesitation.

For his party I made some sausage rolls and rocky road. Below is the recipe I used for the Rocky Road. This is a child friendly recipe which means no nuts.

Simple Rocky Road
2 Blocks of 250g Cadbury Black Forest
1 250g Strawberry and Vanilla Marshmallows (chopped into small pieces)
¼ cup Desiccated Coconut
8 Chocolate Ripple Biscuits lightly crushed
Sprinkles to decorate


1. In a bowl add desiccate coconut, chopped marshmallows and crushed biscuits.

2. In a separate bowl melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 2 minutes. Pour the chocolate over the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

3. Put mixture into pattie pans and decorate with sprinkles.

The cutest little girl in the world. This is my niece Caitlin. Isn't she a doll? She makes everyone smile.

My brother hired a Slushie machine. Oh this was very popular as it was an extremely hot day. The next day we all tried to drink as much as possible since it was going to go to waste. Oh the brain freeze was intense. SLUSHIE OVERLOAD...

Sausage Rolls. I will post the recipe I used in upcoming post. This was a healthier version packed with carrots and celery.

The chocolate fountain was a hit too. This was served with some strawberries, banana bread, banana and pineapples for dipping in the fountain of joy. Yummmmmmmmmm.

Slushie machine - well worth the brain freeze!

Aw what a great aunt you are :) Happy birthday Caleb!

The only time I've tried one of those chocolate fountains was at a bridal expo, and I was very very careful not to get any chocolate on myself. All around me though were hordes of women, eagerly pushing through to get some chocolate on their marshmallows and then dribbling it all over themselves! haha

Happy Belated 2nd Birthday to Caleb! How cool (literally and figuratively) to have a Slushie machine at the party and the rocky road candy looks delicious. Now, I wonder what you'll have in store for Caitlin? 8-)
