Halloween Treats


Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holidays! It always brings back memories of bobbing for apples, going trick-or-treating, and…having my brother scare the bajesus out of me! Today, I still love getting dressed up, screaming at the top of my lungs at scary movies and most of all making spooky treats!

So, one day in one of those never ending scrolls on Pinterest, with a key word of spooky, I stumbled across this gooey eyed monster cookie recipe. They are absolute buttery goodness and what makes them even better…they’re so easy to make! They’re perfect for scary movie parties or spooky cookies for your kiddies.
