Trick or treat! Getting into the Halloween spirit doesn't have to mean you have to give up your classy vibe. That's right, no tacky hanging spiders and inflatable pumpkins, here! 

From high-end smore’s kits to glow-in-the-dark ouija boards, I’ve got you covered to fully embrace a spooky season in quarantine this October. Since the coronavirus is still very much a very real life boogeyman, why not cozy up in a Hocus Pocus sweater (my all time favorite Halloween movie) with some crisp apple cider and embark on a creepy, custom murder castle puzzle

Or…. indulge in some relaxation time with a fall scented bath bomb and an apple spiced shea butter soap. All of the above sound pretty dreamy to me, and to be honest, I’m not too sad about staying indoors this spooky  season and snuggling up with my friends, family and the pup!

You can find all of my Halloween finds (and many, many more!) in my Etsy Favorites Halloween List or the above numbered products are linked below!

Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches

Monday, 14 September 2020

These cookie dough ice cream sandwiches are SO good; the perfect dessert to curl up by the fire with on a fall night. But beware...they are very rich - next time around I will definitely roll out my 'dough' to be a bit thinner and add more ice cream into the mix, or cut the serving sizes to be a touch smaller. But overall, they're such a yummy treat I wanted to share. Read on for the recipe, and I hope you have as much fun making these as I did!

1 c. (2 sticks) melted butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk (preferably whole or 2%)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour*
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
3 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened

Line a large baking sheet with Saran Wrap, leaving overhang on sides. In a large bowl, stir together melted butter, both sugars, milk, and vanilla until combined. Stir in flour and salt, then fold in chocolate chips.  Press cookie dough into prepared baking sheet, evening it out as much as possible!

Top with a second piece of parchment and freeze until firm, 1 hour.  Remove cookie dough from pan and place on a cutting board. Slice dough down the center. Scoop ice cream on one half, then gently place other half of cookie dough on top. Transfer back to pan and freeze at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

Slice into sandwiches and serve!

Traveling during a pandemic seemed a little daunting at first, but I am so glad I did it!
