Each year, I try to think of something different to send in for the boys'
Halloween parties at school. They only have a short time to have the party, so
most of the thing that are sent in end up getting put into bags to take home.
This year, I decided to make cookies...big surprise!!
I decided rather than send in a plate of cookies, I would wrap the cookies in an individual treat bag, and tie it with an orange ribbon. Make these treats, and your
teachers will thank you later. Passing out treats will be simple and
they are already pre-packaged to go home!
I adapted this recipe from Nestles
