Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies

My pinterest feed is filling with pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING, so that must mean fall is almost here! Despite the still burning temperatures here in the desert, I'm more than willing to embrace delicious flavors while I wait for the weather to catch on. So I'm re-sharing my favorite recipe, one of those "it wouldn't be *blank* without them" recipes.  Well, it wouldn't be fall without these delicious pumpkin chocolate chunk cookies!


They are delicious, light & fluffy cookies.

Current Halloween Decor

I love to decorate for holidays, but mostly for Christmas!  Since I currently don't have a whole home to decorate, I thought it might be nice to give our room a festive Halloween feel.

I centered everything around a black framed mirror we already had.  The only things I bought were the candy & the frame. (Both on sale at Target.) I thought the frame would be good, because then I can simply change it out for each holiday/season!  Everything else I already had.  Let me break it down...





Those little jars were wedding presents & originally intended to flour, sugar, etc., but we aren't using them for that right now!  One has candy pumpkins (my FAVE!) & the other has candy corn.  That up there is some bunting I made with paper I already had.



I simply cut out the sized triangle I wanted with cardstock, then with each paper- folded it and cut!  I used a hot glue gun (because it was already on) and put some on the fold & the tip, but the baker's twine down & folded the triangle closed.  Easy- peesy! 


Ahh...my favorite part!  For this, I combined 2 tutorials I found online...
I took my fancy rubber-glue-gun-pad-thing (my glue gun came with it) & free-handed the letters  I wanted. One at a time, and immediately put silver glitter all over, then waited for it to dry and peeled it easily right off! Now- hot glue isn't the best medium for glitter to stick to. (esp. the thick glitter), so don't be too touchy and handle with care.  After cutting out my paper, I glued the letters. Then, I found a clip-art of a bat online & cut two out of black cardstock, as well as a moon out of yellow.  The bat's bodies are only glued, so their wings could come off & give a 3-d feel to them. 

Next, the bucket!

I used this tutorial from Elise Blaha's blog to create the pumpkins. She hangs then, but I added some green ribbon on top to use them for an "eye-level" decor.  I love them & my husband was even impressed! He said they look like they took a long time..which they didn't! Maybe that's why I love them so much...they were REALLY easy! I promise!  Behind the pumpkins are 3-d white letters (R & K) from out wedding.  
Well, there you have it!  A little decor to get us feeling spooky!
