Fall officially started a week ago but I think that Southern California didn’t get the memo, it’s been 90+ degrees here all week! When Fall starts I look forward to cooler weather, baking treats, and making delicious soups. I’ve been waiting to make some cookies with the kids, but I really don’t want to turn on the oven until the weather cools down. So instead we made some no-bake treats that are easy, fun to make, and yummy to eat! I bought a box of wafer cookies, white candy melts, and Halloween sprinkles during the week, then set up a cookie decorating table for the kids.
Each kid was given a piece of wax paper to work on and a small bowl of melted candy melts. In the middle of the table I set out the wafer cookies, Halloween sprinkles, and candy eyes. Jack did not like waiting for the candy to melt.
But the wait was worth it! They dipped the wafer cookies in the candy melts and then into the sprinkles.
It did get a little bit messy. Next time I think I will put the wax paper on cookie sheets to help contain the rogue sprinkles!
They all had so much fun decorating their cookies, and surprising were very good about sharing the sprinkles.
I think they had the most fun with the candy eyeballs, some of the monster cookies had one eye, some had two, three, or even four! If you’re having a Halloween party this year, these would be a fun activity for the kids!
