White chocolate dipped goodness.

Our Saturday was jam-packed. Pumpkin patch in the AM, Hobby Lobby, LSU party, then a pumpkin carving party, topped off with drinks with the hubster. Man, I'm just tired typing that (Mondays are rough).

Started off at the pumpkin patch. Now, when I say pumpkin patch, I mean a swath of land with pumpkins thrown on the ground. I SOOOO miss the actual patch of pumpkins I used to go to in SoCal. You actually picked your little orange orb (or red or white, or green) off the vine! I loved that. The kids had fun though. Pickles tested each pumpkin with a good lick. Little known fact, proper pumpkin selection hinders on it's taste. Or did I just make that up?

The LSU party was fun, but getting there was not. The kids desperately needed a nap so we were late. I can't not bring something to a party. So I brough a cream cheese and pineapple dip. Yum. I ate most of it.

Now for the ghost cookies! I made these while Pickles napped. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have ghost cookies so much as white chocolate covered baby.

I bought some Nutter Butters which was a task in itself. The grocery store had fully stocked shelves. The ONLY hole was the section on the shelf for the friggen Nutter Butters. Aggrivating. I ended up buying the go-packs (4 cookies individually wrapped). I was determined. I melted a bag of white chocolate chips with 1 Tablespoon of shortening (important step when dipping things), then dipped the cookies.

After shaking off the excess (into my mouth, wait, no. That's not right) I added three mini chocolate chips for eyes and a mouth. Set those little bad boys on a waxed paper lined baking sheet to set. Done. Super cute and super easy.

So can you just come paint my whole kitchen in white chocolate? It would improve my week drastically...
