In a mere two weeks, the kiddos will be traipsing through our neighborhoods, in full goblin and ghost garb, in quest of Halloween sweets. I realize that we (sadly, IMO) live in a time when the most trusted treats are store-bought, individually wrapped, generic mass-produced candies. But . . . there's no reason we can't surprise (or even startle!) those we know and love with distinctive Halloween treats in the form of jaw-droppingly boo-tiful cookies, right?!
RIGHT! And this week's hot list* has just the inspiration for this task. You name it - ghosts, mummies, coffins, pumpkins, and spiders - our top ten honorees have all Halloween subjects and decorating techniques covered! Congrats to each and every one of them, but especially to the many newcomers to the list!

So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.
