    Thanks! They are one of my daughter’s favorite Halloween goodies. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

    @Geni
    How cute! Jordan would love for me to be Cat in the Hat, it’s one of her favorites. Thanks for your comment! 🙂

    @Renee
    I think the easy factor is why I love these so much! 🙂 Thanks for reading!

    @Cooking for my kids
    Jordan did most of the work, so it’s for sure a kid-friendly treat! I hope they enjoy them. 🙂

    @Rockbridge Relief Society
    Thank you! 🙂

    @Carolinaheartstrings
    I’ll be sure to stop by! 🙂

  2. These are just adorable and I love the story about your mom. Thanks for sharing. We are so excited to be having our first give away on Tuesday. We would love for you to be one of our winners. Come on over.

  3. These are cute. 🙂 Thank you for linking up at Joy of Desserts, Dorothy.

    It’s so much fun dressing up even when we are adults.

  4. I love these! I’ve made them before as well and I used to wear a Cat in the Hat, from Dr. Zeus, hat every year and paint whiskers on my face. I haven’t done in that in a few years…maybe it’s time to drag it out. 🙂

  5. Thanks for the memories, Kiddo. The cost of costumes was only part of it. I always figured that when you are good at something…(kind of like you writing this blog). Plus there is something about a witch giving candy to children out of a cauldron that seems so like Halloween.
    Love you,
    Mom
