ghouls night out.

it's halloween eve. and i know what you're thinking. you have nothing to take to those nice neighbors who dropped off a dozen delicious candied apples wrapped like pumpkins in cellophane. and you're feeling guilty because you had all these good intentions to return the friendly favor. but now you only have a belly full of candy. believe me sister, i've been there.

so take a half hour (seriously if i can do it, you can too. turn up the tv and watch All My Children while dipping cookies. it'll be fun because erica kane is super scary. if the coma didn't exist what would soap operas be about?!) and whip up this chocolatey spooky special treat for someone you love. i promise it'll be quick and easy, these ghosties will be flying out of your kitchen just in time for halloween.

happy haunting.

wow, you have almost the exact same fancy double boiler as me! i made 'chocolate spiders' this year. i'd feel too guilty making nutty cookies until my cookie monster is old enough to test them for me. luckily, he'll be old enough next halloween so i can give these a try, they're so cute!

marta, you always have something worthwhile for me.

Those are adorable - too bad we can't get nutter butters in Canada.

I can tell you're a nursing mom. That's when we all watched soap operas. I was following Erika Kane in 1970! During that time she was married to twin men (but she thought it was just one guy.)

Another World had a crazy, prison escapee living/hiding under someone's stairs in their basement. I've worried about that happening ever since.

The coma and the nursing mom. Where would soaps be without them?

Sarah said...

You little boy is precious.

Molly said...

I love your presentation of those yummy looking treats. Thanks!

Seriously, about the "coma" comment. For some reason I remember being hooked to "Day's" {of our Lives} in the summer when I was like 12! What's her name was buried alive and then found... she was in a coma forever after that... random, but I totally related to the comment:) no soaps for me these days...

these are darling, marta.
i wish my boys liked peanut butter, but i know if i make them, only my husband and i will eat them and that wouldn't be good.
i'm going to file them away for next year!
Happy Halloween!

By the way, I went out the next day and bought Nutter Butters (my first time trying them---I had no idea what I was missing) and made these with my 3 year old son on Halloween night while we waited for his friends to arrive. It was so simple and very delicious. Thanks for the idea.

Cat said...

I have waited a whole year to make these with my son Jacob (he's 4)
We don't have these cookies in Montreal so I used vanilla filled cookies instead and they taste very good.
I may even give some to a neighbor for fun... if there's any left... Thanks for the recipe!
