Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies.

Yeah, you totally heard me right.
Salted. Caramel. Mocha.

Just like this years fall special at Starbucks.

You just won't even believe your taste buds.

I originally wanted to make just a salted caramel cookie, but when I was digging out all my baking ingredients from my pantry I spied my instant espresso powder.

I swear lightning struck.
In my house.

I added one and half tablespoons of instant espresso powder to this recipe.

The end results are AH-MAZING!

I've also been tinkering around making some Halloween decorations for the front entry.

Some little glass vials I picked up at the local salvation army got labels, water, glycerin and glitter.

A little spell book inspired by a project I found on Pinterest, inspired by the Snow White story.

My fellow geeks out there will recognize the labels.
I'll give you a hint: The intials are H.P.

This one is my favourite.
Water, Ameri-color Gold coloring gel and drink sparkles from Wilton.

Although these cookies weren't originally for Halloween, the rich, dark brown from the cocoa gave these cookies an almost black colour.
Also lets face it, a cookie that oozes anything is just perfect for Halloween!
