On August 2, 2019, my Mom, Frances, gained her wings. She had spent the last 6 years of her life at Lake Forest Park, her last 5 months in Memory Care.

Halloween Cookie Recipe Back
Trick or treat! Halloween is right around the corner and there are many fun holiday themed snacks to eat. Witches’ hats are a fun and easy treat you can make by yourself or with your grandkids. You can give them out to other residents to brighten their day or send them home with your grandkids to give out. Ingredients you will need:
- Fudge stripe cookies
- Milk chocolate or dark chocolate candy kisses
- Decorating gel
Place a fudge stripe cookie with the bottom side up onto a flat work surface. Smear a small amount of honey onto the bottom of the cookie or the chocolate candy. (About 1/8 of a teaspoon) Use the honey to secure the kiss candy to the center of the cookie, covering the hole. (You can substitute chocolate icing or peanut butter for honey as the glue for your kiss candy.) You can use the decorating gel, in the color of your choice, to add a small bow, buckle or ribbon to add the finishing touches to your witches’ hat. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and enjoy!
