  • KitchenAid Stand Mixer – a mixing bowl and hand mixer works just as well, however a KitchenAid stand mixer has been a staple in my kitchen for years.
  • Baking sheets – I like these large sheet pans from Wilton with the deep sides. They are very versatile and can be used in multiple ways!
  • Parchment paper – using parchment paper to line your cookie sheets is the best way to prevent the cookies from sticking! I reuse each sheet of parchment multiple times.
  • Rolling pin – I like to use a wooden rolling pin, but this comes down to personal preference.
  • Mixing bowls – glass mixing bowls are my favorite, because I can see what is happening while mixing.
  • Measuring cups and spoons – I am forever losing and buying new ones!
  • Cookie cutters – there are a ton of different cookie cutter shapes now. Have fun with these!
  • Wire cooling rack – this one is perfect for cooling cookies quickly.

Halloween Party Planning Tips:

  • When planning holiday treats, create a balance of salty and sweet with your snack foods. Be sure to make room for a few healthy options on your holiday table too. Try a plate of fruit and veggies in a color that suits your theme. Or make healthy rainbows, with fruit, veggies, or a mix of both.
  • Whenever possible, get family members involved in the cooking process. Older kids can chop and mix. Younger ones make excellent decorators.
  • Shopping at your local dollar store is a great way to save money on Halloween decorations, serving platters, and fun activity and craft ideas. Even better, the end of the fall season is the best time to shop clearance sales and stock up for next year.
