Give A Mouse A Christmas Cookie Special Plus A Recipe!

This is a sponsored post. Opinions 100% my own.
Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. I love buying gifts and all the colorful decorations. We always wait until after Thanksgiving to really get into the holiday spirit. Not too long though. Like most people I like to get my tree and decorations up the day after Thanksgiving. Then I like to relax with a holiday movie.

This year on November 25th, we plan on checking out If You Give A Mouse A Christmas Cookie on Amazon streaming. This animated holiday special is based on the classic If You Give a Mouse a Cookie book series written by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond. I remember reading this book to my children when they were growing up.  I think it will be fun to watch the story come to life with a holiday theme.

In the special, it’s holiday time and in Mouse’s house that means Christmas cookies (including a special one for Santa, of course!), caroling with friends…and one nearly-destroyed holiday pageant. Can Mouse and his animal friends save the show without getting utterly distracted along the way? It’s a wild ride as Mouse and his friends reinforce for young viewers the friendship and caring that’s at the heart of the holiday season. Like the books, If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie special is centered on an “if… then” narrative structure that teaches cause and effect and encourages creativity among children.


If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie also features an original song, “Christmas Cookie Song,” by Lisa Loeb, available exclusively on Amazon Music to download and stream November 25.

When we have family movie night I like to make special treats. It makes the night that more special.  I have a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies that will be perfect to snack on while watching If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie on Amazon.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Yield: 20

Ingredients

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 4 oz (1/2 brick) cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 20 Peanut Butter Cups

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, cream cheese, butter and egg.
  3. Portion into 1 1/2 Tablespoon-sized balls (I used a cookie scoop to help with this). You should end up with approximately 20 cookie balls.
  4. Take one ball and flatten it in your hand. Place the peanut butter cup on top and fold the cookie dough around the patty to cover it completely.
  5. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  6. Add sprinkles on the top of each patty.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until cracked and no longer glossy.

    If you give a mouse a cookie is still one of my favorite children’s books of all time. My niece loved it so much one of her birthday parties was that theme.
