It’s almost Halloween, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve got an amazing costume planned (sorry, no spoilers here!), a surprisingly booked Halloween weekend, and plenty of Halloween treats to consume!
I love Halloween. Despite the fact I am easily terrified by scary movies and nearly died via axe murderer in a haunted corn maze, I love love LOVE all the creepy yet adorable themed candies, cookies, cupcakes and more, right down to their orange and black wrappers.
So, to celebrate the occassion, I’ve got a lovely Halloween series for you all! In the days leading up to Halloween, you can expect lots of treats (and a few culinary tricks) coming your way! Yesterday, Sweet potato cupcakes with maple buttercream, and today….Monster Cookies!
This is my own spin on monster cookies. I know they typically have peanut butter, and all the candy but the kitchen sink sort of feel, but I wanted to try something a little different. They still have peanuts, but in the form of………..Snickers!
Yep, that’s right, Snickers. These cookies are oatmeal, snickers, M&M, amazing morsels of deliciousness. These are perfect to bring to a casual Halloween party at work, if your coworkers are awesome enough to do that sort of thing, or to a family get-together or kid’s party.
