Also on the menu (and the main attraction of the event): two giant hamburgers (one was a bacon cheeseburger)!

And for dessert: a giant Oreo!

IMG_8803 (750x563)

The cookie was made using a box of Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix, but with a little less water to make the texture less cake-y and more like a cookie. The filling was powdered sugar, vegetable shorting, and vanilla extract. We calculated the calorie total for the entire giant Oreo and it was just over 5,000 calories!

In addition to tiny and HUGE food, we also had a tiny and HUGE-themed playlist, which included songs with titles or lyrics related to anything big or small, such as “Big Pumpin’,” “Small Town Girl,” “Baby Got Back,” “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” and “Tiny Dancer.” It was a fun addition to the party!

CrossFit 781 friends!

Our friend Kim baked a huge (birthday) Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake as well as mini Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcakes, which were eaten in about 30 seconds. They were so delicious!

We ended up partying late into the evening, which included a Flip Cup competition (guys versus girls) and chowing down on chicken enchiladas.

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite tiny or HUGE food?

  1. This looks too cool!! I love all of the ideas! 😀
    My favorite tiny food would have to be chocolate chips.. They have a HUGE version, too, ya’ know.. Those giant Kisses you can get online and in some candy stores. 😉

  2. What a cool and unique idea for a party. I like that you had a playlist that also went with the theme, that must have been fun. When you showed the pictures of Mal with the chocolate covered hands I was wondering what they were making, but that giant Oreo looks delicious! The pasta salad’s side by side cracked me up.

  3. Nice work, Hauperts! I am very sad that I missed the giant Oreo…only my favorite cookie of all time!!!

  4. It’s funny in Fl, they won’t serve 40s (the bud light you are holding in your hand).. We have to travel to Georgia to buy them!
