If you have a daughter under 10 years old you have probably seen or heard about the Monster High brand. It’s a favorite in our house. I love how the show, books etc strongly embrace being different and how you should be proud of not being the same as everyone else. We are definitely not a normal family and always encouraged our kids to stray from the norm, do their own thing, as long as it’s not hurting others.
If you have a little one like I do that LOVES the characters they will love these adorable Skullette Monster High Cookies. It’s perfect for parties, Halloween or treat bags. They take a bit of time but are worth it.
