Toll House Spooktacular Contest and Monster CookiesOle & Shaina Olmanson
This week we’re giving away four Nestle Prize Packs to our lovely readers here on the Family Kitchen! Two are gone, but there are still two left. Enter to win by letting me know the first memory you have of chocolate chip cookies. It’s a great giveaway that will get you in the kitchen and baking with your kids just in time for some fun Halloween treats.
Are you a Halloween baker? I have to admit that I never have been, but mostly due to lack of time. This year, however, have I got a few Spooktacular treats up my sleeve. If you’re the creative type, Nestle is giving away $2,500 when you enter their Spooktacular Baking Activity Contest by entering your Halloween-themed treat using chocolate chip cookie dough. For more information and to enter, visit Nestle’s Facebook Page.
If you’re looking for inspiration, try out these monster cookies, perfect for scaring all those ghosts and goblins and ghouls on Halloween.
Nestle is giving Babble’s Family Kitchen 5 VIP coupons! If you’d like one, just comment here. I’ll email back the first five interested persons to get your information and have the coupon sent to you.
