Instead of spacing out my Halloween baking this month I ended up cramming it all in last week. My carpal tunnel has flared up horribly over the last month and it's become depressing. I have things I want to bake and decorate but the idea of waking up every hour at night because of my throbbing hand discourages me. I try to baby it at home since I know work and sewing takes a toll on my wrist and hand.
So I did all my baking last week when I had Adam around. He became my muscle to help me mix dough and break apart candy bark. This means I now have a refrigerator and freezer full of goodies. It's a good thing we had company up this past weekend and a party to attend to share some of our treats.
|Every year Adam requests these molded sugar cookies. The recipe calls for almond extract and it makes the cookies really good.|
|We made cake mix cookies and rolled them in coloured sugar for a Halloween party we were going to. It gave me a reason to pull out my edible eyeball decorations to make them Monster Cookies.|
|Of course I had to make a chocolate candy bark. I needed a reason to buy a mix of Halloween candies at Bulk Barn.|
Did you make any fun Halloween treats this year? I plan on loading up my lunch box with some of these today since I will be spending Halloween evening at work.
