|Ooo spooky fun PURPLE cookies!|
...And a child shall lead them... Genius!
Nothing more perfect to bring out the orange and black colors in the chocolate chips than amping them up with that other fun Halloween color of purple! Here are the chips. We found them in the baking aisle or sometimes they will have a holiday baking section in the grocery store. The orange colored chips are actually orange flavored, and the others are the regular semi-sweet.

|Ooo purple-y dough!|
With the lower temp of 350º and the slightly longer bake time and they came out perfect for us.
After that all you need is a nice cool glass of milk and a stack of your purple spooky treats to enjoy.
The neon color dye made this a light purple shade. I'd love to try it again with a few drops of regular red and blue to attempt a darker shade.
It sort of reminded me of the back of a sting ray creeping through the ocean...
See what I mean? I don't know if you've ever seen a sting ray before up close, but they are huge, glide-y... almost alien-esque. Some of these above are as big as dinner tables, and although we were told they were friendly and snugly like "big cats"... All I could think about were they were over-sized wasps with killer tails. Did I mention I kissed one?? I was told it was 7 years of good luck if you do.

All in all it was a fun way to slightly change up a regular cookie baking afternoon with some newfangled chips and some revolutionary fun cookie dough colors. I have to thank my 8 year old for the inspiration.
