I adore my witch costume (that I wore for four years in a row), I adore my brother’s handmade mouse costume and most of all, I adore my brother’s chubby little mouse legs. I have so many great Halloween memories as a kid, all which end with my brother and I sitting on the living room floor with both our candy piles in front of us getting ready to “trade” after my mom inspected each and every piece.
Watermelon warheads, green apple now and laters, caramel apple lollipops and little individual sized bags of candy corns were my favorites.
Speaking of candy corn, how fun are these tiny cookies???
They’re totally simply to make, too. I used a regular ol’ sugar cookie dough, divided it into thirds and dyed two of the pieces orange and yellow with gel food coloring. Then, I sandwiched the layers together and sliced out perfect little candy corns!
Since they are so tiny and addicting, it’s easy to eat them by the handful—-the perfect Halloween weekend baking activity if you ask me! That is, if you can handle any more sugar right now aside from the fun size nerds, snickers, mike & ikes and whoppers.
You can find the recipe here! Now if only I could fit back into that witch costume…
