It’s that time of year where kids get excited to dress up and go trick or treating. I love seeing people get creative and decorating their homes. My mom used to spend hours carving pumpkins. She would make some pretty intricate designs like a witch on a broom and wacky faces. Growing up my neighborhood streets were PACKED. Sometimes there were even line-ups at houses…pretty crazy! We had a few haunted houses on my street where we had to walk in and grab the candy before someone jumped out to scare us. I will admit that I may or may not have screamed and even second guessed going into those houses for a candy in the first place.
The best part of the night was coming home and dumping my bucket of candy on the table; Hershey, Kit Kat, caramel, Swedish berries… the types of candy was endless! I remember my grandfather would ask me if he could have my Mr.Crunch bars, my mom would take my caramel and my dad used to eat my rockets (was never really a fan so I didn’t put up a fuss). The bad part of Halloween was the stomach ache after. This is why I decided to come up with a recipe that allowed kids to have the Halloween fun without all the loaded crap and sugar.
The original recipe is from Paola from Gnom-Gnom.com but I re-vamped it a little bit to better suit my way of eating.
I hope you enjoy these Halloween Cookies! They’re gluten-free, artificial sweetener and can be made dairy free too!
