It's a dreary and cold day -in fact, there's a chance of snow this evening- but that does not change that it is Halloween!
Every year, no matter the weather, we will get dressed up in a fabulous costume and tromp through the neighborhood for loads of candy. Not just the trick-or-treaters get into the spirit (pun intended), but the hander-outers do too! There is always someone dressing up as a dummy and coming to life. Last year, when someone did that to my friends and me, I yelled at him! Needless to day, we didn't get any candy from that house. Oops.
Anyway, Halloween shouldn't be just about the costumes and the decorations. Here is a sweet and simple recipe sure to be a hit with your goblins and ghouls!
-1 roll store-bought sugar cookie dough
-1 and 1/4 cups powdered sugar ( give or take)
-3 tablespoons milk (give or take)
-3 drops neon green food coloring
Bake cookies according to package directions. While your cookies are cooling, whisk powdered sugar, milk, and food coloring together in a bowl. You might need to add more powdered sugar or milk if you think the mixture is too runny or too hard. The mixture should be gooey, slightly runny, and slimy green. Once cookies are cooled, use a teaspoon to put "slime" mixture on cookies. Let icing set for about and hour and a half and enjoy!
Note: you can use a spoon to make a "splat" design on your cookies. They are supposed to look messy, so they don't have to be perfect!
