So here is another story about my inability to order correctly from instacart. Limes???? I said 3 limes……I got three bags. White Chocolate Pistachio Lime Cookies for the win!
It’s hard to believe Halloween is just a month away. If you are in need of some extra special treats, here are three treat-rific ideas for your Halloween!!
These little cuties take the scary out of spiders. The original recipes from A Spicy Perspective and was a huge hit on Facebook and Pinterest back in 2014.
Although I am not a fan of a peanut butter cookie….don’t judge! These were easy to make, and cute as can be. Any cookie that has a truffle on top is my kind of cookie.
In the original post, I eluded to not being able to find the googly eyes, but they are mainstream these days and well…….Amazon!
Again with the googly eyes. Dark rich chocolate cupcakes decorated to look like a bubbling cauldron.
Not nearly as intimidating as they look to make, green tinted frosting is decorated with edible candies. Red striped birthdays candles for witch legs with witches shoes attached with a dab of frosting.
These are by far my favorite Halloween treat…..but I do love cake!!!!
This recipe…..once I got the dipping part right was super easy. Let me correct that….once I got the candy coating right. See… I tried to add food coloring to white melting chocolate, take my word for it and save yourself some$$$ ( I had to throw away $5 of chocolate… it seized up when the color was added). Buy colored melts. They come in almost any color and work like a dream.
Bugles are a blast from the past for me, we used to put them on our fingers and pretend to have witches fingers…..I seem to remember the Bugles being larger. I guess maybe it just me….oh yeah….I’m larger….lol
Witches Fingers are a sweet-salty treat sure to satisfy any ghost or goblin. Place them in a plastic cauldron for a cute presentation.
Try any of these treats for Halloween party or as treats for your trick or treaters!!
What’s better than a thick chewy bakery style cookie? NOTHING!! Cranberry Almond Bakery Cookies …..oh yeah!!!
I have mentioned before that I used to manage a bakery. Said bakery was in a grocery store, so volume was king. It would have been impossible to make all of the choices from scratch. So, we did what I fondly called fake and bake.
If you can decorate it or add a little something to the flavor it’s a win! Cookies for us came in the form of frozen pucks. All you had to do was put them on a cookie sheet and bake them. They were surprisingly good.
But alas, they were not homemade 🙁 These days I do not need to produce in bulk, so creativity and made from scratch are the order of the day.
I love cookies…….sigh! I love cranberries…..sigh! I love almonds……sigh! All three together…….Woot!!
I wanted to make an extra special, bakery style cookie. Big, chewy, and full of flavor. Continue reading “Cranberry Almond Bakery Cookies”
