I wear black on the outside, cause black is how I feel on the inside

I took the kids to the craft store with me - note to self: Do not do that again. Two boys in a craft store = complete boredom. The store was adjacent to the mall where we saw...a giant SANTA set up. What. I ran the other direction only to be struck down by aisles of Halloween crap. Granted I am preparing for the holidays myself, but it doesn't mean I am ready to see Santa yet. Hello, it's still September - barely! So I embraced the closer of the two holidays and bought a bag of Halloween M&Ms.

The seasonal colors kill me, I love it! But I wasn't planning to just sit there and eat the whole bag, nooo. I wanted to do something to showcase the purty colors. So I made my regular M&M cookie recipe but changed it to a cocoa cookie. It made a nice dark background for the bright colors.Alone, it was a good cookie. But I decided to kick it up a notch, more is more, if you will - and used them to make ice cream sandwiches. I lathered a scoop of the richest Haagen Daaz vanilla and...Voila! If I actually made these come Halloween time, I think I'd use two well placed icky green m&ms as eyes. Then this thing would really look like a monster. A YUMMY monster. Mmm. Is it scary cause it's dark and ominous or because it's so fattening...mwahahaha. Spooktacular.

I'm stunned at the pace of which the holidays are approaching! Before you know it, I'll be getting my flu shot.
