Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I go all out. We decorate our entire house then have everyone over for a Halloween party full of yummy food, spooky treats, and a night of Trick or Treating! This is one of those spooky desserts that I have always seen, but never actually made ….. until this Halloween. Note:I served my cookies on a napkin lined platter. I used red food coloring to make the “blood spots” and I put a kitchen knife on the tray with more red food coloring. If you are serving to children obviously skip the knife!
