I’m sure most of you have heard about Voodoo dolls or have seen them in movies. They’re usually associated with witch doctors, black magic, and, of course, those pins! Voodoo dolls can be used for all types of things, both positive and negative, but since it is Halloween, after all, I’m making mine a little more spooky and menacing…although they are still pretty darn cute, right? These Voodoo doll Halloween cookies are really easy to make and decorate, and add a fun Halloween touch to your parties or gatherings! Do you dare to give them a try?

There’s nothing that I love more than winding down at the end of the night with my favorite warm coffee in hand and a sweet little snack to go with it. (Not sure if that’s just a sign of me getting old or if I’m just embracing the colder weather and getting cozy over here, but I’m going with the latter). And I know I’m not alone! My family and friends are the same way. So, this year, I’m going to be prepped and ready for all of those upcoming holiday house guests with my barista skills! Ha, just kidding. I’m stocking my fridge with the International Delight® One Touch Latte’™! The can makes it so easy to whip up a barista style latte for your guests without having any fancy equipment or any coffee house knowledge, which I love! And who doesn’t love pumpkin everything in the fall and cooler weather months? I’m sharing a recipe for these white chocolate pumpkin cookies that are a cinch to make, look much fancier than they actually are, pair perfectly with your lattes, and did I mention that they are delicious?!
Today is national cookie day! I hope you guys have already started celebrating with cookies for breakfast.
I definitely think December is a fitting month for this foodie holiday, with all of the cookie exchange parties and hot cocoa filling mugs this time of year.
I’m not sure if you guys are like me, but I pine away over gorgeous and pristinely decorated cookies on pinterest and have high hopes and big plans of doing the same, but it never seems to work out for me. First off, I always give myself way too much cookie decorating credit, which I learn pretty quickly each time I try. Plus, holiday cookies can take a ton of time and sometimes, depending on my schedule and my memory, I have to stop and pick up store bought (gasp!) cookies on the way to a get together if I forget. Don’t act like you haven’t either.
If you guys are the same way, today’s post is going to solve all of your cookie konundrums! I’m sharing a recipe for chocolate dipped pizzelle cookies that are uber delish and a cinch to make! Plus, they are gorgeous!!!
You’ll definitely impress the other cookie guests in attendance when you show up with a batch of these beauties!
If you’ve been following along for a bit, you’ll know that I’ve started a new series on the blog titled “Sweet Stops”, a monthly trip to a local sweets/treats/heavenly place here in Utah, where I share my favorites with you guys.
Today marks stop number 2! (Catch my first trip here).
If you’ve been to Salt Lake City before, you may have heard rummblings of a local cookie joint that’s too good to pass up. A retro throwback to pin-up’s of the past (and a sassy one at that!) Ruby Snap packs the flavor, charm, and spunk of those gals you admire from across the room and secretly wish they were your new best friend, but in cookie form, of course.
Have you guys ever tried watercoloring?
I’ve seen it all over the web and I got a little intrigued. It can’t be that hard, right?
So what did I do to test out this new technique….? I tried to decorate sugar cookies, of course! (Don’t ask me why I started there.)
