Monday Night Football!!

Hubby and I play in a Beirut league on Monday nights. Yes, we play a drinking game in a league on a work night – we’re crazy people! The best part is that we get to watch Monday Night Football which is awesome!

Tonight, the Patriots are playing in the Jungle (Cincinnati). Being Bengals fans living in Boston is tough, and tonight is going to be really tough. We are going fully decked out in our Bengals jerseys and we’ll be obnoxious fans. It’s going to be great.

Anyways, after each week of play, we get Totally Biased Power Rankings. A quote from last week from the power ranking man is: “the best way to get the #1 spot is to make me food” Do you think these cupcakes will get us a first place ranking when the ranking-guy is a huge Pats fan?!? I think we’ve got a great chance of it.

I didn’t have much time to bake since we got back from the Cape at around 8PM last night, so I used the diet coke method. For the orange cupcakes, I used diet orange soda with vanilla cake. For the frosting I mixed cream cheese frosting with 1 pkg sugar free orange jello. Then I put black coloring in it. For the chocolate ones, I used the triple chocolate cake mix (the one that says Hershey’s) and frosted them with vanilla frosting with orange coloring. I topped with various orange and black sprinkles and orange M&Ms.

Since I used the diet coke method: 1 box cake mix + 12 oz diet soda + 1 egg (optional), these are 1 pt mini-cupcakes or 2 pt regular cupcakes (without frosting).

    Those are some very lovely cookies! I want these for breakfast! They have blueberries right?

      I could totally justify eating them for breakfast. They have oats too!

    I love using fresh berries in cakes and breads – I don’t know why I have never tried them in a cookie! Yours look delicious, thanks for the inspiration!

      Any time! It’s rare to see fresh fruit in cookies.

    I never would have though of putting fresh blueberries into cookies…I gravitate toward scones/muffins/cake, but these just may have convinced me to try cookies!

      I know – you just never see them in cookies. Definitely give these a shot.

    LOVE the idea of fresh blueberries in a cookie like this. Have any tipes to keep from smashing the blueberries when adding them? 🙂 Pinning now!

      Thanks for pinning this 🙂 Just be careful when you stir the berries in. They shouldn’t smash unless you’re really heavy handed.

    Had to comment on these, I made some earlier in the week as I had some fresh blueberries to use up – they were so easy and quick to make and delicious. Definitely worth a go.

      So glad you made them and enjoyed them. I love an easy cookie recipe!
