Have you ever played bunco? I remember as a child my mom trying to explain to me the rules of bunco. She used to ” sub” in a neighborhood bunco group. When I moved to Southeast Iowa, I joined a bunco group and was so happy I did! Joining a bunco group is such a great way to meet new friends! If you have ever played bunco, then you know that it is a dice game!
This month was my turn to host bunco. I have brainstormed something ” Dice-like” to make for a few months. You know me, If I have the opportunity to make some ” crafty food” I totally will!
I thought I would make a ” Bunco” snack mix with mini cookies that look like dice! This recipe ended up being easy peasy! I just needed to do a little brainstorming on how I would pull this off.
After doing some ” googling” on how to successfully make a square cookie. I decided on this “ simple shortbread” cookie recipe. I simple just used a butter knife to cut the cookies into squares.
next, I wanted to find a frosting recipe that ” hardens” on the cookies. After reading some boards online, I simply mixed powdered sugar with some lemon juice and a bit of water to make my frosting.
I placed mini chocolate chips on the cookies to make them look like dice and let them dry overnight!
I made a ” snack” mix by baking pretzels, popcorn and nuts wish cinnamon and sugar. I then added dried fruit and my dice cookies!
I think it was a big hit! I was thankful that I was able to host bunco one last time before I move! I have really loved living in Southeast Iowa and have made some friends I hope to keep around for a long time!
