Vanilla Mummy Madeleines with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Chip Eyes - www.yummycrumble.comSweet madeleines that have turned spooky!  A light buttery vanilla madeleine wrapped with vanilla buttercream frosting and two mini chocolate chips for eyes.  These simple and adorable Vanilla Mummy Madeleines are perfect for Halloween!

My son’s pre-school Halloween party is coming up next week and I’m excited about making a creepy dessert for his classmates.  Oliver (my little taste tester) has been sampling my Halloween treats all month.  His verdict is…everything has been “too spooky”.  As much as I love making little kids squeel and run away, Oliver has advised me to keep it cute.  I think these Vanilla Mummy Madeleines fit the bill.  They’re so adorable they surely won’t scare the kiddos away.  Not like these devils.  Or these guys.

    You are KILLING it with the Halloween desserts this year! These are so adorable. How old is your little guy? Mine is 2 1/2 and lately everything has been “so scary!” We can barely read any of his favorite books because he’s decided they’re all too scary. What is that about?! Anyhow, these cookies are not the least bit scary, so I hope they’re a big hit with your son!

      Hahaha! Thanks Elizabeth! My little guy doesn’t feel so little anymore. He’s 4 now! But I still have an 18 month old little girl to even things up a bit. My son loved them and he didn’t think they were too scary 🙂
