White Chocolate Mac Nut Lime Cookies

Candy! Candy! Candy!

That’s what my kids will be thinking tonight. And me too, actually. We don’t eat a lot of candy in our house. Mostly because I usually have sweets like these delectable White Chocolate Mac Nut Lime Cookies around.

So, are you gonna steal all the good candy (almost anything chocolate covered) from your kids, like me?

No?

Okay.

Have an über fun, safe, and Happy Halloween!
