Leah is all about spooky Halloween things this year. I am always worried she’ll be scared, but the girl is not phased by the huge talking skeleton at Target. Could be because we’ve had a giant Darth Vader in our hallway since she was a baby. That she says goodnight to it every night. We are weird, there is no denying it. So needless to say, she likes the spooky Halloween stuff.

I’ve wanted to make some easy Halloween treats that Leah could help with. But also be adorable and delicious. Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookies are the answer! These are so good, thick but super soft on the inside and packed with peanut butter goodness.

So yummy and adding just a few edible eyeballs make them super fun and spooky. Or in Leah’s words “spoooooooooooky.” Very easy Halloween cookie that your kids (and you) will love. I found these eyeballs at Michael’s but you can get them on Amazon as well.

You gotta try this one! Follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolosdesserts. Be sure to snap a pic if you make a Lolo’s recipe and tag it with #lolosdesserts. I love to see what you are making!
