One of the great things about the holiday season is baking. As the temperatures drop and people spend more time outside, the holiday decorations and seasonal scents start to appear inside and outside the house. One of the most popular holiday activities is baking, and each holiday has its own staple. For example, Christmas has gingerbread houses and candy canes, Thanksgiving is turkey and stuffing and Halloween is usually bobbing for apples, and candy.
However, Target is shaking things up this year by introducing a do it yourself baking cookie kit completely dedicated to Halloween. So now instead of decorating a cookie house with gum drops and candy canes, peopel can decorate a cookie house with orange icing and candy.
The two new Halloween cookie kits, made with chocolate cookies, are available from Target’s Hyde and Eek! Boutique collection and each one retails for about ten dollars. The first option is called the Haunted Mansion, which yes, resembles the famed Disney Haunted Mansion. It’s a two story house structure with a door, windows, trim, a decorated roof and other details. The baked cookies, and decorations are included in the box, so all you have to do is assemble it.
Next is the moonlit cottage, a one story house with orange iced piping windows, a door and roof decorations. This kit is only about six ounces and includes pre-baked cookies, the orange icing, and decorative candies.
In addition, the collection also offers a chocolate Halloween graveyard, complete with headstones. This twenty-six ounce kit has a variety of different types of headstones, with skeletons, icing written text, and different shapes to resemble coffins and other Halloween inspired shapes.
All three of these Halloween cookie kits are available at all Target stores and online for just ten dollars, although there is no expiration date for when these items will stop being sold.
