FatBoy Ice Cream Cookies and “Scream” Milkshake

When you think about Halloween does ice cream come to mind? Perhaps I’m the only one who has ice cream on the mind all the time! It’s the perfect treat for any time of year (for some reason I think I crave it more when it gets cold than when it is hot out!).

I was thrilled when I was asked to work with FatBoy Ice Cream to share some ways that you can spookify your ice cream treats this month!

Best of Halloween Head!

Valloween has come and passed, and Halloween seems so far away. But fear not spooky friends, because this time in-between seasons has me feeling nostalgic and looking back on my past blog posts.

I figured now would be a great time to revisit some of my favorite posts, recipes and DIYs to keep the spirit of Halloween alive during this chilly and bleak transition into spring.

Take a look back at my favorite posts with me…

Creepy Crawly Spider Cookies

 

I’m getting excited for my Monster Mash Bash Halloween party happening on October 20! So much so, that I’m beginning to make ghoulish treats for all of my friends to enjoy. Nothing puts a smile on your face than some treats with a little spooky personality to them.

The only issue I run into is that working 40 hours a week can make you feel less than enthusiastic about whipping up something homemade.  That’s why I want to share this easy and quick and frightfully festive spider cookie recipe with you! It’s perfect to put together on a weeknight or when you’re running out of time to make something spooktacular to treat and delight your pals.

Simple Pumpkin Blended Coffee

blended pkin coffee

I am not a fan of the typical store bought pumpkin spice coffee – but I have created a pumpkin blended coffee that I do enjoy! At times, the “pumpkin spice” essence in coffee leaves a bit of a chemical after taste (to me at least) so I blend my coffee with real pumpkin, brown sugar and cinnamon for a sweet, creamy pumpkin treat.

I am terrible at providing accurate measurements for this recipe (it was an “eyeballing it’ creation), so please use it as an inspiration for creating your own unique blended pumpkin coffee and adjust to your liking! Read more below to see how I make mine:

Halloween Library Book Haul

I love gearing up for the Halloween season with some good Halloween books – everything from scary stories, how-to’s, recipes and other tales. I’m also all about saving money, so I often visit my local library to get my Halloween reading fix for free. My library has an awesome app that let’s me enter in my search term (which was Halloween), search the catalog and request to have the books I want sent to my local branch for pick up. It makes it a lot easier to peruse the Halloween collection at home and decide which ones I want!

I’m going to be completely honest, I am a bit of a slow reader so I’ve not finished all these books yet, but I want to share with you what I found in case you’re looking for some frightening new reads:

Soft Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

What better way to kick off the weekend than baking a batch of cookies? How about a batch of PUMPKIN cookies at that? I don’t think there is ever a wrong time of the year to indulge in a little pumpkin!

Today I want to share a yummy, easy, pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe with you! I made some today and my husband calls them “muffin tops” since they are soft cookies (but I love them nonetheless!) . So if you like soft cookies and or muffin tops, these are the cookies for you.
