Chocolate Spice Cookies

Even though Halloween falls on a saturday this year, many friends are opting to have their parties the night before, or in some cases the weekend before! Such was the case this past weekend. John and I dressed up and headed out the door to go to a friends annual party! AND man is this a good party. First off, everyone has to dress up, no outfit, no entrance. Second my friend is an AMAZING cook and I wish I took a shot of all of the food. It's over the top seriously.

Buffalo wing nuggets
Grapes stuffed with blue cheese
Fiesta Dip
Salsa cheese wraps
Cheese stick fingers
Bone shaped bread sticks
Pigs in a blanket
Cheese decorated to look like Frankenstein's head
Buffalo dip
Fried candy bars (no joke she makes them!)
Witches hat cookies
Oreo truffles
and seriously a good 10 other things!

For some reason I feel the need to bring something else even though there is enough food for an entire army! I brought along this chocolate spice cookies, they weren't my favorite, but they sure looked nice. They were all supposedly eaten so I guess they weren't that bad lol.


If you really want to make them you can find the recipe in Perfectly Light Desserts. I got this book as a gift and it's AWESOME! Yes this one wasn't the winning recipe, but it has tons of great ones in it.

Oh wait, you want to know what John and I went as? Hahaha, A prisoner of marriage and a convict :)
What's up with the purple ghost thing in the lower corner?? weird...

I thought the costume was hilarious too! And john's "tattoo sleeves" here a hit haha although they almost cut off circulation they were so tight! whoops!

Diva on a Diet- you know what it's not that they were bad at all, just not my favorite... maybe I'm not a huge spice cookie fan? Or maybe they needed a little more sweet to balance the dark chocolate powder... or maybe I should have used milk chocolate powder like they said too LOL :D
