I remember every year I’d go out trick-or-treating and then come home and immediately sort out my hoard into piles. They’d get ranked “good,” “okay,” “trash”, etc. This Halloween cookie cake recipe changes all that!
Even as an adult, when I could buy my own Halloween treats, quite often I’d end up with chocolate and candies I didn’t really want. You know how it goes – the only way you can get a supply of your favourite mini chocolate bars is to get it in the multi-pack.
Inevitably there was waste.
Sure, you can trade your unwanted stash with friends and family (or include it in your bribery…I mean, rewards drawer at school for your students). But why not just make this delicious cookie cake instead?
