Halloween isn’t just for the kiddos! Adults need treats too. And we tend to want to go a step above Kit Kats and gummy bears. Local artisans are getting into the spooky spirit with Halloween themed treats for a limited time. Pro tip: these are a great addition to your Halloween celebrations too.
This North Shore bakery goes all out for the hols and Halloween is no exception. They’ve got festive cookies and get this, pumpkin Nanaimo Bars made with fresh roasted pumpkin purée and pumpkin pie spice!
Decorative cookies continue to be a party hit, and we love them even more when local bakers get creative and have fun with their designs. It’s hard not to fall in love with Hello Hoopla’s cookie designs. This mom of three is endlessly creative and the cookies are bootiful!
Pro tip: Customized names on the ghost and pumpkin cookies are a fun addition to your child’s class party!
