I have one last easy, delicious Halloween treat to share with you all today. Noah and I had a blast whipping these Halloween Triple Chocolate Pudding Cookies up and it was so nice to spend time with just him since things have been a little hectic since Hannah has arrived. This is my last week of help before real life sets in and I am a stay at home mom to two kids. Please pray for me.
I picked up some Halloween chocolate chips that consisted of semi-sweet chocolate chips and orange colored chips. I tried really hard to think of something creative to make with them but I came up short. Then I stumbled across this recipe for triple chocolate cookies and I knew the resident chocoholic would go crazy for them. And he did.
Thanks to the addition of chocolate pudding mix, they are soft and chewy (even days later) and chocked full of chocolate goodness.
So, what are your kids dressing up as for Halloween? Noah chose Buzz Lightyear and Hannah has a sweet Cinderella dress. Oh, and Noah decided he’s not going to say “trick or treat” but “can I have some candy please?” instead. Hmm, we’ve got to work on that before Thursday. At least he added please, right?
