Homemade {Halloween} Oreos

We LOVE Halloween at our house! We watch movies, TV shows, ride around and look at decorations and bake goodies! I was on the hunt for something new to bake this weekend and stumbled upon Baking A Moment! Oh my goodness, am I glad I did!! The recipes on her site are gorgeous! Since I was young, I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption and one thing I can admit that I miss is Oreos! They have High Fructose Corn Syrup so I cannot eat them. When I saw a recipe for Homemade Halloween Oreos on Baking A Moment, I decided to bake them. They came out DELICIOUS! I didn’t have orange food dye so the cream is white but it didn’t take away the fun for us! What is your favorite Halloween treat to bake?? xoxo
