Quick and Easy Halloween Treat-Ghost and Mummy Cookies


Cooking with children comes with a few, how do you say, challenges. My older boys are now at an age where they can pretty accurately follow a recipe. Julian did mix up the salt and sugar that one time, but other than that they’re pretty ace. The littles, however, are more at the break and bake stage. This little mummy milano cookie recipe showed up on my Instagram feed, (shout out to @daniellepaschka for posting it) and I thought it would be perfect for the little two to create for their friends at school. We added a ghost option because we are all about the spook life. No matter the age of your tiny chef, this quick and easy Halloween treat is sure to impress.

To say that this treat was a hit would be an understatement. Milano cookies are one of their favorite cookies and they were so excited to spookify them. I’m already thinking of ways to modify this quick and easy Halloween treat into different Holidays. We are all about that sweet life.
