Here's What You Need For Your Easy Halloween Cookie Ideas

The Ingredients Are... you are going to make these fun and easy cookies...great. Here's what you are going to need...Oreo's...nummy!

Okay, they are not really scary cookie making ideas. You have to pull your oreo cookie apart, but it's not like your killing it...I always rip my oreos apart when I eat them so I can get the creamy center first! So, now you have your cookies apart. Then you get your pretzel or licorice ready to put inside...part of it is going inside and the rest is going to stick outside so it looks like spider legs. You can add a little bit of that extra icing we talked about inside to really hold down the legs or you can just put the cookie back together using the creamy filling as glue.

Your cookie is now back together and it has legs....AAAAHHHHH...okay, it's still not really scary, but I am having fun pretending it is. So now you are going to make eyeballs on your cookie. Put two dabs of white icing on your cookie where you want the eyes to be. When you have that set you are going to stick two candy circles on your candy on each dab of white.

My favorite Halloween serving tray is a little bit expensive, but I think it's worth the money. I love Halloween and the decorations I find to make my place look as festive as possible in October. I know you are going to love this tray too...and like me, you can wait to see if it goes on sale. I have to tell you, mine did not. So I ended up paying full price for it and I am still happy I got it. Now, that's real love cause I love, love, love to get stuff on sale. I am a thrifty witch!
