Plan a simple ghost-themed party or fun afternoon snack with these Halloween Cookies and Milk Shooters. #ad – This post is sponsored by Oakhurst Dairy. As always, all opinions are my own.
Fall in New England, with its cooler weather and changing leaves, is my most favorite season for family activities. From apple and pumpkin picking, to fairs and festivals, there are plenty of activities to choose from. Now that the back-to-school controlled chaos has settled down, it’s time to reconnect with one another. It can be so easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day minutia or caught up in planning elaborate seasonal events. The key to juggling it all, I’ve discovered, is to remember to stop and appreciate those small moments with your children because it’s the small moments that you’ll treasure and make it all #SoWorthIt.
My kiddos love cookies and milk. It’s one of their favorite treats, so I’m giving you a great recipe you can use to create a quick and fun afterschool snack with a Halloween theme, or use as the basis for a simple Halloween party. These chocolate chip peanut butter cookies are loaded with delicious flavor and my kids love to gobble them down with a glass of Oakhurst milk.
The fall-like colors in the mini peanut butter candies are the perfect compliment to these adorable ghost milk shooters that you can make with the kiddos in no time. All you need are a few shot glasses (juice glasses will work too) and a black sharpie.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mini chopped semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup mini peanut butter candies such as Reese’s Pieces
- Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth.
- One at a time, beat in the eggs. Next stir in the corn syrup, water, and vanilla.
- Combine the dry ingredients and carefully stir into the peanut butter mixture.
- Finally, fold in mini chocolate chips and mini candies. Drop by tablespoonful 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment or silpat.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool for a minute or two on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Serve with milk!
