Get Ready for Halloween with @CherylsDesserts Cookie Decorating Kit

by Kerri on September 30, 2012

Halloween is quickly approaching and it is time to start decorating the house and getting your costume ready for some trick or treating.

This year Cheryl’s  cookies has introduced another way to get ready for Halloween with their new Halloween Cut-Out Cookie Decorating Kit. This is a delicious and fun gift idea!

Cheryl’s new cut-out cookie decorating kit arrives with everything you need to create yummy buttercream frosted Cheryl’s treats at home- no baking necessary! This kit includes 24 unfrosted pumpkin and ghost cut-out cookies, a one pound tub of vanilla and one pound tub of chocolate buttercream frosting with Halloween sprinkles container. $39.99

I was lucky enough to decorate some of these delicious cookies with my nieces and we had such a great time doing it.  The package comes with everything you need. The cookies are all individually wrapped so that they stay as fresh as possible.  You can choose which type of frosting you would like vanilla or chocolate and the sprinkles are so cute with ghosts, bats and colored sprinkles.

 I found it a little easier to put the frosting in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften up the icing so my nieces could decorate the cookies themselves.    Everyone loved choosing their own cookie and mixing up the sprinkles and even combining the icing.  If you would like you could even add food coloring to the vanilla buttercream and make it orange for pumpkins.

This was a great treat to have just in time for the Halloween season.

Raising Three Savvy Ladies has a Cheryl’s Decorating Kit for one lucky reader. 

 Thank you to Lauren for being such a wonderful aunt and for writing up this great review of Cheryl’s Cookies.
