There’s A National Cookie Month?

Yes, indeed there is . . . or someone is goofing with me!


Doesn’t the graveyard look like cocoa powder? Yum! Hot Chocolate Grave Dirt. And those rocks could be Rock Candy.

I’ve usually done the Cookie Exchange thing for Christmas, but why not start it off with A Halloween Cookie Exchange! Wouldn’t that be frightfully delicious? And continue with a Thanksgiving Cookie Exchange all to hit the Grand Finale of the Christmas Cookie Exchange!

I think it’s always good to plan ahead with your great selection of holiday cookie ideas for each season. I don’t know about you, but now would be a perfect time to gather all the “seasonal” cookie recipes together and see how many we have stored away somewhere . . . I would imagine by combining Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas we have well over a hundred or two or maybe three hundred of them . . . but where are they?

I’m Sure I’ve Published Over A Dozen Halloween Cookie Recipes

I’m going to need to go through my archives and revisit them throughout National Cookie Month and beyond. Cookies with a theme or season are always fun.

These Creepy Spider Treats are a bit too much for me, but they could be a major hit with your guests at your Halloween Party or for your Halloween Cookie Exchange. What do you think?


Are those Rice Krispie spider eggs? I’m getting a bit creeped out!!

There are plenty of spiders and critters you can fashion out of cookies and candy pieces . . . How about that One Eyed, One Horned Flying Purple People Eater?

Or The Blob!! That terrorized The Colonial Movie Theater!!

The Blob would be fun, but you have to keep it in a mound and add red food coloring to it . . . Maybe have a No Bake Truffle you can dip in those red chocolate melts.

You may go with other movies you’ve seen that have various paranormal entities . . .

Of course, there are plenty of monsters — Frankenstein, the Mummy, Bride of Frankenstein, zombies that are growing in popularity — witches, ghosts, ghouls and even goblins . . . You may have your hand full with those . . .

I don’t want to get too creepy with brains and gore and guts, but you can do what appeals to you. I’m into more of the fun stuff that’s kid friendly . . .

Thanks for stopping by!

Be sure to add a picture and recipe in the comments below. We can start getting this Halloween Cookie Exchange off to a great start.

Oh, by the way, I’ve had this song buzzing around in my head. It wouldn’t be polite for me to keep it all to myself. Here’s a video you may enjoy:

Now, wasn’t that enlightening 🙂

And, now for those of you who may not be familiar with The Blob:
