Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Ghoulish Halloween Chocolate Sugar Cookies with Icing


A confession: the picture of these guys isn't great. As you can tell, I was feeling a bit hurried by everyone at the Halloween party eating them before I got a good picture - and all of them were gone only moments later. I barely had time to frost these guys! My advice: make and decorate these delicious chocolate cookies before your Halloween party guests arrive.

2/3 c sugar
1/4 canola oil
1/4 c vanilla almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp imitation butter extract
1 c AP flour
1/2 cocoa
1 tbsp arrowroot
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/t tsp salt

Mix the sugar, oil, milk, and extracts in a large bowl. Sift in the dry ingredients until well combined. Refrigerate dough for an hour or so, just so it is easier to handle when you are using cookie cutters. (If you are just making these as drop cookies, there's no need to refrigerate.)

Bake for 5-7 minutes.

When cooled, frost and add sprinkles and coloured sugar as desired.

Quick Frosting:

4 c confectionery sugar
4-8 tbsp almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
food colouring as desired

Separate into batches and add desired colours. Spread with a frosting knife over cooled cookies and add accoutrements.
