Happy Halloween!

We had trick-or-treaters last night (for some odd reason Kutztown does it the night before...I think they mistakenly think the college students and their crazy Halloween parties will disturb the little ones). We had about half as many as last year, which may be due to the cold weather.

I love Halloween, although the last few years I haven't had a reason to dress up. I'm hoping that as SoJo gets older, that we'll get to have more fun. There were so many cute costumes last night, from the mini UPS driver costume on a 2 year old, to the shark with people legs hanging out of its mouth to the 8 or so Hannah Montanas with fake blonde wigs (kind of creepy).

I hope you all have fun today, and that you find something to do with all of that extra candy. I may make some Candy Bar Cookies from Cooks.com for Chris to take to work, since we have lots of leftover candy from last night.

Candy Bar Cookies
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
10 regular size candy bars cut into 1 inch pieces

In large bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy; add eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda; add to peanut butter mixture; beating until combined. For each cookie, shape rounded teaspoon of dough around a candy piece, forming a ball. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cook on rack. Drizzle with chocolate glaze. Makes about 60 cookies.

CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
Combine 1 cup sifted powdered sugar and 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder. Add 1 tablespoon milk. Add additional milk 1 teaspoon at a time to make of drizzling consistency

Enjoy your Halloween, and Happy Haunting!

  2. They aren't doing trick or treating in our building this year due to the hallway renovations. I personally fail to see how they conflict each other.
