Fall is my favorite season here in Maine, and there is so much family fun to cram in. Between apple picking, pumpkin patches, hayrides, soccer games, and of course Halloween, there are so many amazing #SoWorthIt moments.
Like most kids, my boys get over-the-top excited about Halloween. This year they're planning to be a hockey player and baseball. Not going to lie, I'm not quite as in-to Halloween, and it always seems to sneak up on me, but I'm determined to be prepared this year, and to do some festive fun with the boys before their new brother arrives this winter. I'm hoping to even squeeze in a Halloween play date for my three year old and his buddies. With that said, I need treats and activities that are simple and ones that my boys can help with. Last week we made Ghost Milk Shooters and No Bake Spider Cookies; they were a hug hit! Fun and easy and definitely on this list for our Halloween play date.
These Ghost Milk Shooters are So simple and a really a fun addition to a Halloween gathering or an extra special (or spooky) after school snack. We used glass shooters like these, but if you're doing a play date or party I'd recommend going with plastic shooters. Making the ghost face is a fun job for the kids; use a black sharpie and make your best ghost faces. Fill the shooters with your choice of milk, I used Oakhurst Whole Milk for one of my son's and Oakhurst Vanilla Almond Milk for the other with a dairy sensitivity. It's always good to have both milk options on hand if you're hosting a group. Top the shooters with Oakhurst whip cream if there are no dairy sensitivities it makes them look a little more festive and an even tastier treat. A great alternative to the whip cream are fun sprinkle rims, check out this post from a fellow #SoWorthIt mom.
The boys and I had a blast making these cookies, and they loved showing them off to friends. These cookies are fun, festive, and simple to make.
