Treats on Sunday Are Sa-weet!

Yeah you read that right! We’re treating on Sunday instead this week. Truth be told we cheated a little earlier in the week. I mean we’d be crazy to pass up fresh, hot out-of-the-oven pumpkin bread and pumpkin dump cake! Since we  already have our pumpkin fix for the week we thought we would get our bake-on with something we could really sink our fangs into. Double Chocolate Halloween Oreo Cookies are definitely worth the extra day wait! Double Chocolate Halloween Oreo Cookies

¾ Cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup white chocolate chips
