It's about that time, folks, and so naturally we've been inundated with sp-ookies this past week. (BTW, "sp-ookies" is short for spooky cookies, a term conjured up after imbibing too much witches' brew when writing this post.)
While many cookies on today's hot list* are decidedly eerie, some are unexpectedly elegant; others make fashion statements; and still others are downright cute (think Yorkies in Halloween regalia). But no matter the style, all are boo-tifully executed, as I'm sure you'll agree!
Enough already with the trite Halloween puns, and onto this week's honorees . . .

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.
